The CASTLEVANIA games from developer and publisher Konami dates all the way back to 1986, and if you’re a horror fan, you’ve likely played through several in the series. In total, CASTLEVANIA has seen well over thirty different titles in the last two-and-a-half decades, with some being considered among the all-time greats, while others faring less well. Owing plenty to the classic horror films and literature that came before it, the series has also made several contributions of its own to the genre, as well. Countless references and cameos exist throughout the gaming industry and pop culture, and the series has even managed to produce at least one highly successful fan-made series, and rumors of a high budget film have been circulating for several years now. With the release of CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2 looming (and gracing the cover of FANGORIA #324) and CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW MIRROR FATE having just arrived, Fango presents a brief look back at all that’s come before.Read more »

ACW Games has announced the release of ZOMBIE SQUASH (now available for free on Amazon.com, Google Play and iTunes), which stars the iconic director of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, George A. Romero, as the voice of Dr. B.E. Vil. Players will assume the role of the rabbit Jack Stompingtail and stop the Zombie Squash from taking over the world.
In this tower defense style game, the evil Dr. B.E. Vil has taken his experiments too far at the Monsterno Corporation and created an army of zombified veggies. As Jack, players can shoot an arsenal of garden ammo to take down the hordes of undead gourds! Gamers can unlock an addictive, survival mini-game with Gamecenter Leaderboards once they have completed the first five levels. Romero summed the game up by stating, “It’s not a game about squashing zombies, it’s a game about zombie squash.”
ZOMBIE SQUASH, from the mind of Attila Juhasz (owner of ACW Games/Attila’s Creative Works LLC), comes with a rockin’ soundtrack that was written and produced by Roy Z (known for his work with Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford and Judas Priest). And an amazing theme song written by Juhasz and recorded with guitarist & associate producer Michael Di Paola.
