Resurrecting the Undead, the Gameplay
Most of the gameplay in Braaains consists of recruiting, training, equipping, and fighting. Players have to build a powerful army of zombies. Each user has complete control of their militia size and strength. In the graveyard there are a variety of corpses available to exhume. Players can choose a depressed, timid, lazy, raging, OCD, or schizo personality type. A fee paid in gold coins or brains is necessary to resurrect the dead. When revived they’re automatically stored in the warehouse where players can train and equip them. Training is primarily the distribution of brains among zombies. Adding a brain towards health, strength, agility, or defense attributes increases it by a point. Although brains are earned throughout the game from earning achievements it’s still a chore accumulating them. Users have to use a little bit of strategy to dominate in this game. Zombies start out as privates but as they get stronger move up in rank. Promote them to specialist, lieutenant, major, or colonel. Equip them with wacky weapons like the lawn chair and push broom. Players have the option of completing various tasks to win achievements or scouting the PvP area for a rumble. Tasks listed on the to-do list can be accomplished for a brain reward. They usually involve quests like defeating an opposing zombie with a meat log, winning a fight without a weapon, recruiting 5 zombies with the same personality, or conquering a player that is 4 levels higher than you. There are over 100 achievements for users to earn.
PvP Zombie Mayhem
Fighting and leveling up is essential for earning gold and brains to assist in the growth of a player’s army. There are no restrictions in the PvP area. Players can fight anyone they wish regardless of level. A drop down list appears of available players. Users can scroll down and pick an opponent to fight. All of the fights are automatic once a player initiates combat. The battles are colorfully animated creating an entertaining show. Slow walking zombies holding their golf clubs and lead pipes creep towards each other and then jump into a rolling dust ball. Yellow eyeballs roll across the ground and boney legs fly as the assault continues. The player with the last zombie standing wins. A reward of gold, XP, and occasionally special loot is given. They usually come in the form of a high damage weapon like the cheese wheel or tree branch. As players level up their army must tackle tough boss characters. Battle monsters named Miffles the evil cat, Frunkstein, Ying Yang panda, and Reznor. Attributes and boosts determine the victor. Players can purchase special moves for an advantage during brawls by entering the Science Shop. Cool moves like acid rain, transformer blast, freeze ray, sludge balls, and saw blades doom cause major damage. Each move lasts duration of 1 to 4 hours. The downside to this is that all of special science infused techniques requires expensive bones to purchase.
Zombie Mini-Games & Friends
A cool feature in Braaains is the mini-games. When players click to help out a friend one of several challenging mini-games pops up. It’s a nice break from the sometimes repetitive PvP combat.

Indulge in a human head version of the classic brick breaker with Militia Breaker or try for a round of Zombie Train. Braaains has diverse array of mini-games to spice up gameplay. Scoring high earns a lump sum of gold coins and XP. Send friends free gifts or challenge them in a fight.
Competitive players can also browse through their friends’ profiles and check their ranking status. The rankings area displays the top players with the most wins, losses, longest winning streaks, levels, cash, and highest scores in the mini-games.
