If you've got a DS you'll have noticed the number of Brain Training-style games aimed at improving your intellect.
But having a big brain isn't always good news and so it proves in Atari's Teenage Zombies: Invasion of the Alien Brain Thingys, where Earth's free-thinking humans succumb to the amazing mind control powers of, er, the Alien Brain Thingys. The only people who can help are those whose interest in brains is less about thinking, more about nourishment. That's right: The Teenage Zombies.
You've probably guessed this by now, but Teenage Zombies isn't the most serious game in the world. A brilliant parody of both the Zombie genre and classic 1950s style Science Fiction and presented in comic-book style, the gameplay is a modern mash-up of side-scrolling adventure, stylus mini-games, double-screen boss battles and brain busting puzzle challenges. It's fast, fun, stupid and smart, and proves once and for all brains are both useful and delicious.
For your chance to win one of three copies of the game, for the Nintendo DS, answer this question.
According to modern folklore, which part of a human is a typical zombie most interesting in consuming?
