Teenage Zombies: Invasion Of The Alien Brain Thingys is a Platform Game developed by InLight Entertainment for the Nintendo DS, and released on March 28th, 2008.

The earth is being invaded by alien brain... thingys. They've already begun enslaving the minds of humanity, and all seems lost.

However, hope comes from the most unlikely place... a trio of teenage zombies have been disturbed from their slumber by the invasion, and where humanity sees their doom, the zombies see an all-they-can-eat brain buffet. Their undead state means they're immune to the brain thingys' mind control devices, which means that now the aliens have a problem on their nonexistent hands.
