YMMV / Zombies Ate My Neighbors

  • Demonic Spiders: Plenty of both.
    • The freaking vampires. They're nearly invincible and once encountered, they will chase you through the level until you either win it or die.
  • Ear Worm: All the music in this game is very catchy, even after hearing the same 7 or so songs for 50 levels.
  • Fake Difficulty: On ocassion, you will find victims that are impossible to save, even with Sprint Shoes.
  • First Installment Wins: Good luck to anyone who tries to find at least one person who thinks Ghoul Patrol is better than Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
  • Fridge Brilliance: The waterguns kill monsters because they are filled with holy water, and all the monsters are weak against holy symbols.
  • Game-Breaker: The Monster Potion, which grants a few minutes of Nigh Invulnerable, and also has punches that can destroy ALL but a few bosses very quickly and that can break through walls and doors.
    • Password "BCDF" is the most useful password you can use; it takes you to an obscure bonus level based off of Day of the Tentacle, where you can find a lot of goodies and an extra life. If that wasn't bad enough, if you have bazooka ammo left over, you can go there again! And losing no victims in either runthrough pretty much means that you can max your lives before the fifth level.
