Arguably the best MATLAB video game adaptation of a zombie-themed board game released in 2019, ZombiePlagueM is inspired by the free customizable board game, Zombie Plague, I had so much fun playing when I was younger. This is a single player version with substantially different rules but is organized around the same theme of running from zombies and trying to survive by securing a hiding place.
The objective is to maximize your score by searching squares while surviving the growing zombie onslaught by barricading yourself inside the building. Being eaten by zombies reduces your score considerably, therefore you must balance the risks of searching against safely protecting your current score.
To install, unzip and put the ZPMv1 directory on the MATLAB path and run ZombiePlagueM.m to open the main game window (which is resizable). To start a new game, navigate to Game>Start Game. For detailed instructions (you'll need them) and credits navigate to Game>Help.
Many thanks to inspiring game creators Skott Kilander, Brian S. Roe, Mingjing Zhang, David Buckingham.
