The sequel to the well received Alive 4-ever dual stick shooter has finally arrived. Alive 4-ever Returns expands on the same zombie-invested formula but seems to add many new features to the mix.

The sequel offers a new graphics engine with weather effects, RPG elements as well as 18 types of zombies and 37 types of weapons. Feature list from the developer includes:

  • 4 Player Co-Op (local Wi-Fi)
  • Fabulous Visual Effects
  • RPG Elements Such As Power-Ups & Picking-Up New Skills
  • 13 Amazing Skills
  • 18 Disgusting Types Of Zombies
  • 37 Different Kinds Of Destructive Weapons
  • 36 Bonus Equipment
  • 40 Stages Of Challenges
  • Supersize BOSSES!
  • 3 Unique Game Modes
  • More Than 40 Achievements Through OpenFeint

Here's a recent gameplay video which shows off the new features.


We haven't had a chance to put the game through its paces yet, but early feedback is being collected in the forums.

    Getting this immediately. I loved the first game- of the dual-stick run-and-shoot games, this is the best for me thanks to the stuff like weapon variety, items, RPG-like ability upgrades and tons of missions. The additional stuff is gonna push this even more.

    Getting this as soon as I get some money in the bank tomorrow.
    Only good things have come from the first game of the series.

    The 1st was easily one of, if not, the best dual stick shooter of this type. Haven't managed to complete the first one yet, level 30 always beats me.

    Still, getting this immediately.
