We like Shaun Of The Dead, a lot - much as we adore Spaced, and we're looking forward to Hot Fuzz, whenever that pops onto screens. Thus, we're somewhat delighted by the launch of the Shaun Of The Dead game for cellphones in Europe, yay.
According to the PR: "Shaun of the Dead pits players against an onslaught of zombies and un-dead scum set inside the confines of the Winchester Pub... Players find themselves defending the pub from a first-person perspective, battling droves of zombies with weapons and household objects including a shotgun, cricket bat, and vinyl LPs from a record collection."
We particularly like the fact that the movie is explained in the press release as "a "rom zom com" (romantic zombie comedy)" - but we do wonder, is Dire Straits one of the LPs being thrown in the mobile game, and will New Order really get spared? Details like this are very important. To us alone.
