Strange samurai head heading to New York City.

NEW YORK- What appeared to be a harmless meteorite crashing in the Nevada desert has turned out to be Darc Seed, an evil alien creature with horrible powers. By shooting strange magnetic rays, Darc Seed has turned the helpless nation into zombie slaves and has brought the Statue of Liberty to life to do his dirty work.

There Goes the Neighborhood

Mrs. Emma Nuttz of Brooklyn had this to say about the situation. "Just when it seemed safe for decent folks to walk the streets again along comes this Dare Seed with his gang of Zombie hooligans and there goes the neighborhood. And if that wasn't bad enough, it seems the only way to defeat this ruffian is by totally destroying every in sight. Now there really goes the neighborhood!"

Mr. I.M. Sicken tired of the Bronx added, "As if we didn't have enough stinking' garbage on the streets already. Between the freakin' wino's and the blasted beggars and all the other louses already fouling up this miserable town...and now these sleazeball zombies!! It's enough to make me want to move to freakin' Los Angeles with all the other fruits and nuts!

Mayor Heminhaw immediately called an emergency press conference where he read the following prepared statement. "I um, er, ahem, ah. I am doing everything, ah. er, er, humanly possible to see to it that ah, this situation er, um, this terrible situation ah, comes to a ah, ahem, a swift and, er, um, um, a swift and satisfactory close. I er, er, um, have no further er, er, comment at this time. Thank you".

ZOMBIE NATION: Ground Shaking NES Action

Zombie Nation is a ground shaking action/shooting game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The object of the game is to wreak total destruction on everything you see by firing powerful projectiles (it's a dark and dirty job, but somebody's got to do it). Meanwhile, you need to rescue as many zombie hostages as you can in order to gain enough strength for the ultimate showdown with Dare Seed (he's toast!).

ZOMBIE NATION: Devastating Graphics and Pounding Sound Effects

Zombie Nation's graphics are so devastatingly realistic you'll almost be tempted not to demolish them (yeah right!). And the relentlessly pounding sound effects will make you feel like you're right in the middle of the action hammering away at skyscrapers, mountains, and everything else that crosses your path.. So don't just stand there like a Zombie, get your copy now!

In Zombie Nation a vile space being called Dare Seed turns America into a nation of zombies, and that's the most normal thing about this outrageous shoot-em-up from Melcad.

Getting A Head

You know Japan has a lot invested in the U.S. when the spirit of the great samurai Namakubi returns to the world of the living...errr, living dead to combat Dare Seed and his Seedlings. However, only Namakubi's noggin actually shows up.

You "fly" the head in a horizontally-scrolling, monster blast-a-thon across America. Namakubi pops eyeballs from his sockets and spits tongues from his mouth. He's gross but effective.

Oh Say, Can You See?

This game is so graphically intense it might give you a headache. You get five stages, 12 rounds total. See New York City, the Grand Canyon, the Texas Oil Fields, and the Underground Caverns of the North Central U.S. like you've never seen them before.

This is a shooter's nightmare! The screens are overrun with zombie things including helicopters, jets, robots, water snakes, lava monsters, and teeny tiny people (sometimes riding teeny tiny horses). The four extra large bosses include a gigantic Statue of Liberty, an axe-juggling giant, and awful Venusian Snakes. Moreover, you fly through cascading waterfalls, boulder showers, and eerie night scenes. The backgrounds are bizarre and gorgeous!


  • Stage 2's lightning bolts hurt, but don't get caught in the clouds during an electrical storm either.

  • Make the screen scroll over zombies positioned above you and they won't shoot.

  • In Stage 4, Round 2, you can't do much damage to the aliens as you cross the waterfall. Cram into either the upper right comer or the lower right comer of the screen to suffer the least damage.

Zombie Out!

What's going on at Meldac! This shooter's big time fun, it looks tough, it's weird... but when the going gets weird, the weird get going. Zombie Nation's definitely heads and shoulders above the rest.

The game was developed by KAZe and published by Meldac. In Japan it was released in 1990 and in North America in 1991. The genre is scrolling shooter and is for one player.

The player known as Namakubi, starts the game. Actually, the meaning of his name, which is just a Japanese word, is something like "sliced off heads". There are cultural peculiarities on that point. This zombie samurai, who has just reduced to a giant hovering head, has a mission to save the United States of America from an alien attack that turned people of US into zombies. The game is thought to be quite weird, because the main playing character appears to a giant floating head of a zombie, shooting eyeballs and vomiting as a weapon. He has to destroy or manage to avoid a range of different enemies like deadly zeppelins, or zombie snipers or lava monsters. He also saves people while destroying buildings. Saving people, his attack powers is getting increased.

Its levels:

  • Round I: New York City - The Head of Medusa (Evil Statue of Liberty),
  • Round II: The Grand Canyon – Atlas,
  • Round III: The Oil Fields of Texas - The Nuclear Plant,
  • Round IV: The Underground Caverns of the North Central U.S. - The Venusian Snakes,
  • Final Battle: Dark Seed.
