Would you dare Touch the Dead?

Judging by the name of this title, the game play-premise, and the screen shots, you’d think this is another entry in Sega’s once-popular House of the Dead series. However, despite the many similarities between the two titles, Sega has nothing to do this intriguing-looking House of the Dead-esque title.

Exclusive to the Nintendo DS, Touch the Dead will make heavy use the touch screen (well, judging by the title, that should come obvious… unless, of course, you happened to ride the short bus home…). In this bizarre title you play as Rob Steiner, an inmate who is the only human in a jail overflowing with zombies. You have to escape alive by killing every zombie in your path via the DS stylus.

Sure, the premise is absolutely ridiculous, the visuals aren’t exactly mind-blowing, and, in terms of depth, won’t shatter the world, but this arcade-like, light gun-type title should provide excellent st00pid fun when it’s released this June.

In the mean time check out these screen shots:

It might not look the part, but think I'll love it. Then I'll give typing of the dead a try...

Having enjoyed stylus slashing of Zombies in Resident Evil DS, this is definitely on my 'to buy' list!
Can't wait!

(Elderly, it's not too late to trade in your PSP for a DS, but do it quick, they've just knocked another £15 off the price of PSPs in the UK...)

This game looks dreadful. It is clearly is a House of the Dead look alike but doesn't even come close.
