This is the first and only video game that I ever bought simply because of the title, who could resist a game called "Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ"? I was honestly expecting a silly and probably terrible video game, but I was sorely mistaken. Basically, zombies have taken over Fairy Tale Land and it's up to Red to find the source of the outbreak and vanquish the baddies. Graphically it's a nice blend of 3D levels and 2D characters, bright and vibrant colors of course...it is set in fairy tale land afterall. This game is like the old-school arcade line-shooters, you can only move right or left and the screen scrolls down as you move forward. The gameplay is excellent, you can either tap the screen with the stylus or use the d-pad to move (you can use the xaby buttons if you're a lefty like me) and you simply touch the screen to shoot, sounds like an easy game right??? WRONG! The gameplay mechanics are great but trust me, this game is seriously difficult toward the end, thankfully it has a nice learning curve. You will have a great feeling of accomplishment once you beat this though, always nice to earn a victory! Of course to get the complete story you have to beat this on Hard mode...yikes, but you will be rewarded with a Boss-Rush mode and survival mode as well, all of which beef up the replay value. This game is definitely gonna be a cult classic, I would strongly recommend this to old-school gamers and shmup fans accross the board. Definitely right up there with Contra 4, Metal Slug 7 and Nanostray 2 as far as DS shooters go.

When I got back into games after taking a break for a while, the first one I bought for my DS was Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ. It got fairly good reviews, that's all I remembered. Nothing about how it played, or what it was about, just that it was pretty good. Once I popped it in and played through the first level, I knew I had bought something special. Take one part Metal Slug, one part B-horror movie story and two parts cute, and you get Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ. It's great in many ways, but there are a few things keeping it from getting 5 stars. But the main thing is, if you like shooters, this should be on your wishlist right now.

The story isn't anything special- Red goes to her grandma's house to bring her some goodies, when she gets attacked by zombies and monsters on her way there. All hell breaks loose, and Red takes it to 'em with her trusty machine gun. It turns out that everyone's turned into a zombie, except a random ninja, Momotaro. The two then go to see what's causing the problem, and try to fix it. Red and Momo run and gun their way through a good handful of levels and some pretty wacked out bosses before everything's said and done.

Playing the game is simple, though it might look weird at first. You move Red or Momo (you can select either to play as) using left and right on the d-pad. Your character is on the bottom screen, and they walk through the level as enemies and obstacles come at them. Touch the screen to shoot, double tap to launch grenades, and you can also select special weapons on the bottom screen as well. Simply lift the stylus off the screen to reload your regular weapon, which has unlimited ammo. If an enemy grabs you, tap them and you'll slap them silly with a melee attack.

Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ, what is there to say about this one....

Well, its HARD. Really hard. The concept of the game is awesome, Little Red Riding Hood, complete with D cup breasts (wtf) goes to see her grandma and along the way is attacked by a zombie horde. She grabs her trusty machine gun (and later on, shotgun, lasers and flamethrower) and goes on a killing spree. Yep, that's about it. Oh, and there's a random ninja that you can pick as the other player.

The IDEA behind it is cool. You'll visit various fairy tale locations and each bosses is a prominent fairy tale figure turned into a horrific monster or zombie, or undead, or mutant. Granny turned into a bed ridden green thing that throws killer dentures and chairs at you (think the Poltergeist from Splatterhouse), Pinnochio is now gigantic and throws shipping crates at you, Gretel has turned into a witch and wants to cook you alive, to name a few.

It's a niche title, and semi difficult to find. Finding a complete copy now can get expensive but it's worth checking out. It's fun, quirky, and good for anyone looking for a challenge.

This game is pretty fun.
I had been on the fence with it for some time and I am thrilled that after buying it I found it surpassed my expectations and then some. It has got bad dialog, voices are stupid bad, over the top characters, zombies, and fairy tale characters gone very wrong. Whats not to love?
It plays much like an old arcade shooter retooled for the DS. The game screen constantly scrolls upward, or to the side, with the players character at the base of the lower screen. Enemies pop up in the distance and right in front of you at times. Some bosses are larger and fit both screens. The shooting/aiming mechanics are similar to a light gun game (house of the dead for example)but using the stylus instead of a gun, if you can picture that. Players also have to dodge left to right using the directional pad or Y and A buttons.
On the down side some of the controls suffer from the touch element. Primarily the bombs that you would use by tapping the touch screen twice which is very similar to reloading.
This is a fun game. The mechanics, graphics and story are interesting enough to me to keep it close to the top in my stack of games. Its got zombies y'all! Get this game, you will probably be happy you did. I am.
