Eh-hum # 182

I used to play (and eventually get addicted to) free online flash games, which pretty much distracts me from working. Nowadays, when I go online, its really more about blogging, reading articles/photoessays and watching viral videos. However, I stumbled upon this game that puts a twist on the first person shooter/zombie genre: Divine Intervention.

Well, the graphics aren't that big (its flash afterall), but I thought the plot/setting of the game was pretty cool. Demons have taken over the city by possessing the bodies and soul of its populace. You play the role of a bad*ss priest (who looks more like a Marine), the last pious person in the city. In the intro, we see the priest praying to the Almighty for a sign, a solution to the abomination the city has fallen into. The sign: an automatic pistol encased in a Bible. His/your mission becomes clear: blast away the demons back to hell and set the city to the path of righteousness.

If you're trigger happy (gamewise) and virtous (well, more or less), then this game is for you. That is, if you don't mind the rather simple graphics. Hehehehe.
