Fans of retro-style action games and/or indie titles with wacky premises, don't miss out on Tempura of the Dead. Released a couple days ago to Xbox Live Indie Games by Japanese group 8bits fanatics, the game has you switching between a submachine gun-toting U.S. President and sword-wielding samurai to fight zombies.

Oh, and you need to juggle zombies' heads in the air several times with your gun and sword, too, in order to save their souls -- once you do that, you enter a Tempura Fever mode allowing you to save the zombies with just a single head juggle. I don't understand it either, but it sounds like a fun mechanic.

You can download the game now for just 240 Points, or grab a free demo. If zombie head juggling and the Lupin/Obama-esque artwork above for the President of the United States isn't enough to convince you to try it out, you can check out Tempura of the Dead's intro movie and some game play after the break. Let's cook them all!
