So...when my fiancé plays video games, he's normally playing some gory, let's shoot at zombies type game that I think is stupid. And gross. Bleck. Not my cup of tea.
So, when I was recently given the opportunity to play a new online game called Fleck, and heard there were zombies in it, I did NOT have a lot of high hopes for it. After all, I was used to gory, blood-flinging-super-manly-zombie type games. Luckily for me, however, that is not at all what Fleck is like!
Fleck is an online game (can also be played on your ipad if you are lucky enough to have one!) that is played on a real map of the world. Like, really real. Like, I found my littttle tiny cul-de-sac road in the game real. You play with a little character who can travel around the Fleck world, visiting any kind of landmarks that exist in real life!
When you're not traveling around the world, your little character can grow your garden (I developed quite the little virtual green thumb while I was playing), build businesses, and hang out with friends! You can chat with other players in the game at any time which I found super helpful, especially when I was starting out. Everyone was more than willing to answer the questions I had. So if I dig up this zombie plant it goes away?....yes....whoah. never knew zombies grew from plants before...
And, as mentioned, you can fight zombies as well. In a totally, non-gory-blood-flinging and strangely satisfying way. Here's an actual picture of my map of the world on Fleck RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of fighting a zombie. See me?? I'm the one labeled "Becca" and looking pretty BA fighting that purple thing. And yes, I did sacrifice some health points to get this screen shot JUST FOR YOU ALL. I mean look how fast that zombie was coming at me!!! This was not a good picture taking moment. Sigh. The things I sacrifice for my readers. ;)
So, if you ever have a craving to shoot some zombies, try Fleck! Or, maybe even recommend it to your kids. It's really not that difficult to follow, and everything is clean and pretty kid-friendly on it. Best of all, it's free to play!
I was given the opportunity to test out Fleck with my affiliation with the Clever Girls Collective. This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are 100% mine.
