Just a few months ago I was horrified by their Nintendo DS kart racing game, Homie Rollerz. Yet, here we are, just half a year later, and Destineer has done a 180 and given us an action game worth talking about. I'm not afraid to admit it; Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ is secretly this season's best handheld game.
With a name like Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ (which isn't much shorter when you abbreviate it to LRRHZBBQ) my first instinct was to think that this was some sort of food game, after all this is the company that is bringing us the Iron Chef America game. But it's not; instead it's an old school overhead shooter that has you taking out all sorts of nasty zombified characters. It's sort of a cross between Capcom's brilliant (and criminally overlooked) Cannon Spike and a traditional light gun shooter, only with a bigger emphasis on humor and zombies."
