Description of Zombie Smashers X

If you liked River City Ransom, don't bother reading this review. Just download this shareware demo and play.

Ditto if you're a fan of B-Movies and like the idea of: Jump kicking a zombie, exploding its head. Throwing a trashcan at a zombie, exploding its head. Hitting a zombie with a wrench, exploding its head. Maxing out your power bar, punching a zombie, and exploding its head. Not just that, either. The characters (10 in all) have special moves. So you can pick up a prone zombie and backbreak, or come up behind a kneeling zombie and break its neck, or pick up a zombie and spin it round, or rip out a zombie's heart and eat it (which gives you health, hurrah).

There are shops that are a lot like River City Ransom's, similar weapons - even the tire - and tattoos replace books to give you new powers. And to add wonder to the awe, there are editor programs for creating new maps to add to the game, or to create custom games. Conceding to a reviewing convention, I had a friend play the game with me. His normally placid face was cracked with glee as we dispensed head-bursting justice to the risen dead with metal bars, and we cheered every time I leapt over a zombie and used my backbreak skill to produce a realistic skruk.

We didn't rise up from our session of fighting to exhume corpses and kickbox with them, even though this game is excessively gore laden (and therefore mind twisting to us young, impressionable folk, right?). We did, however, have a lot of fun.

Jim Silva has given us a great game. Support his genius with the paltry $10 fee to get the full version.

I like the screenshots but my antivirus say this is unsafe. Trojan.Click2.22521 detected. Aww.. :(

I get Run-time error '-2147221164 (80040154)':

Class not registered, what do I need to do to fix this?

Error Code 445 just select Windows XP Service Pack 3. Or use troubleshoot compatibility.

Windows 10/11

1)Download Registered version.
2)Download WinRar or an archiver program, install it.
3)Extract the registered version somewhere. Drag and drop the registration items into the game folder with ZSX.exe and register it using autoregister. You'll get a message that says thanks.
4)Download and Install .net runtime 6.0 from Microsoft (x64!) (6.0.7 or the latest contain a massive library of codebase that should have legacy somewhere in there). Full administrative rights.
(If you get 2502 or 2503 during install, take ownership of all your temp folders and your user folder.)

See what happens.

5A) "Runtime Error code 429" Open a CMD as Admin and type this in sequence then hit enter after each line. If you do not have these dll's you'll need to find them in 32bit versions and put them in the same folder as the game, and in your system32.
"regsvr32 dx7vb.dll"
"regsvr32 dx8vb.dll"
"regsvr32 d3drm.dll"

I get the same error as Tylerson. Even trying to run the game in compatibility mode for Windows 98/XP doesn't solve the issue.

Anyone know how to get this working on a modern PC? I get an error when I try to launch this.
