Epidemic is a beat'em up game released by Jay Tholen. It consists of one level, where you need to reach the end of the stage without dying.
At the start of the game, you are presented with three difficulty levels, which simply determines the number of lives you have.
There are four weapons in the game:
- Fists, a short range melee attack.
- A pistol, which can kill zombies in one or two hits
- A grenade launcher, which takes out a cluster of enemies.
- A machine gun
There are also items scattered throughout the single level. At the start, the most important items are throwable items, which can take out zombies without risk to health.
