Introduction:

Darts VS Zombies is one of the kinect sports gems. This makes the game similar to the other sports gems in that you must complete in-game challenges to level up, and that it’s fun as heck.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:

*Note that this game can be completed by observing a friend or family member unlocking the achievements, as long as you have your gamertag signed in.*

This game is a clash between a game of darts, CoD zombies, and pizza. Basically, there is a pizza at the center of a dart board (where the bullseye would normally be), and waves of zombies that walk slowly towards the pizza. You must throw darts at the zombies to kill them, before they get to the pizza and eat the 3 slices. Every wave spawns more zombies, and every 5 waves give you a nuke, that you could save (they accumulate) or use whenever you want.

Like most kinect games, the sensor is unreliable. I recommend sitting on a chair about 6-8 feet back from your TV. Also, instead of mimicking shooting a dart with your hand, you should have your hand open, fingers together and pointing toward the TV in a 90 degree angle, and sort of just move your arm forward, as if you’re trying to touch the zombies. Don’t move your arm too quickly, like you would in actual darts, because the sensor won’t read it. Move your arm casually forward when you throw. Try to keep your hand moving constantly, even between waves, because sometimes the aimer will lock onto a place on the board and that small delay can really ruin your run if it’s a heavy wave.

Multiplayer:

No multiplayer

Conclusion:

Though it is not the most entertaining of the sports gems, Darts VS Zombies is a quick and easy completion, and you will enjoy the list of in-game challenges.

Earth's Last Hope 5
Salvation! You reached level 10 (or observed another player doing so) to rank as Earth's Last Hope.

Each challenge has a star value ranging from 1 – 3. To reach level 10, you will need to complete every challenge, which adds up to 101 stars. 3-star challenges are generally more difficult than 1 or 2-star challenges. If you follow the technique mentioned in the roadmap, then these challenges should be nothing to worry about. Most of them are rather simple and straight forward, but I will mention a few that may need some clarification.

Hit 28-9+2: You will notice some challenges that are similar to this one. All you need to do is the math. That equation equals 21, so hit 21 on the dart board. There does not need to be a zombie on it.

Hit 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 in order: Challenges like this are best done in the first or second round. May take a few tries, because aiming is hard in this game, but it’s pretty simple.

Avoid trebles for two waves in a row: In darts, a treble (triple) is the thin red and green arc in the middle. Not the outer red and green arc where the zombies spawn, although they do spawn there in certain rounds. Just avoid killing zombies that are standing on the trebles. They usually pause there for a moment; so if you haven’t killed them already, just wait until they move off the treble to kill them.

Only hit doubles for one wave: Doubles are the red and green arc where the zombies usually spawn. Easiest done in the first wave, just kill the 2 zombies while they’re spawning.

Survive the third zombie stampede: Zombie stampedes occur every 5 waves, so wave 5, 10, 15, etc. You’ll have to survive the third zombie stampede, this means reaching level 16. I got to level 16 several times before this challenge actually came up so don’t be too worried. Try to save your bombs for as long as possible, because level 15 can be quite hectic. I like to have at least one bomb to detonate at level 15, I’ve managed to make it there with two before, though.

Kill a total of 666 zombies: This will most likely be your last challenge to complete, simply because it comes up so late. I ended up completing all the challenges with 333 zombies left to be killed. You’ll be able to clear around 100 zombies a game if you can make it to level 15 each time, so it’s a very short grind.
