hm, the spy and the laberynth seems kind of small, 40000 words, but maybe it's because it seems to be a different approach. Anyone got any idea about the other two, hero unmasked and of course the good ol choice of zombies? I haven't played that one, is it wooth playing when zombie exodus is also out there
personally I found zombie exudus more engaging and I think it has more replay value, but choice of zombies is certainly worth a run through.
