It follows the same sort of theming, with the strange colors/music/etc.The aesthetic is, once again, a kind of disturbing. The load screens have lots of completely-unrelated anime images, while the music vacillates from one style to another, without seeming to "fit" the themes of the map.The artwork is strange - there are some neat environmental themes that the author explores, but the art feels rushed and a little sloppy. There are a lot of stretched textures, jagged edges, and otherwise clear breaks in the "reality" of the level(s) that serve to only remind me that I'm in a game (instead of trying to support the otherworldly feel the author is going for).The enemies are creative, but a lot of the issues with the art carry over here. While I'm sure that some intent was put behind the movement of the enemy characters, the breaks in animation - either where melee animations don't blend or where the character speed exceeds the speed allowed by the run animation - just feel buggy. I don't know that I'm the kind of perturbed by this that the author would like.There are also very strange win conditions to the different modes. There's no real feeling of progression - while I do see wave difficulty increase, there's no timer or kill counter telling me that I'm approaching some goal. It also doesn't feel like I have any control over whether I succeed or fail - I just sit around and wait for matches to finish (and this feels like a real problem on some maps - a lot of time I simply sit in one place and basically hold down the trigger).So while this is a new iteration, it is definitely the same song as before - I like the creative thought put in to the design, but the implementation is a bit off. Go ahead, though, and give this a try - it's clear that a lot of work was put in to it, and that's always nice to see.-MavPlease use the following link to download this file, not the link given to you by the "Download Now" buttonhttp://www.gamefront.com/files/20955867/The+Zombie+Apocalypse+2.7z
