    Alawar Entertainment has released the downloadable version of Zak & Jack in Showdown at Monstertown, a casual arcade shooter starring a pair of heroic Hobsters. Famous for their clever inventions, Hobsters enjoy a paradise of paved streets and cozy houses. When word of their village spreads, the evil beasts of the monster world band together in an envious campaign against the goodhearted Hobsters. Luckily, Zak and Jack learn about the plot and prepare for the assault.

    In Showdown at Monstertown, the player takes control as the courageous twosome mows down wave after wave of Rhinosaurs, Robocopters, Swelloons and more. Powerups allow the player to unleash a storm of devastation on Zak and Jack's enemies, including five of the wackiest bosses ever seen in an arcade shooter. Featuring incredible cartoon animation, vivid backdrops and explosive audio, Showdown at Monstertown is designed to thrill action fans of all ages!

    Visit www.alawar.com to view screenshots and download the free trial version of Showdown at Monstertown. You can also purchase the full version online for $19.95.

    I was waiting for this :)

    I'm a little disappointed though.

    1)at only getting one life, than having to restart the whole level over again
    2)the game is repetitive
    it seems like it would be more enjoyable experience if the game one was structured like

    level->level->level->boss fight->bonus level

    instead of
    level->level->level->level->level->level (fight boss at end of)

    3)the power-ups could last a bit longer and be distributed in a more intelligent way (ex: throw a machine gun my way to kick the boss's butt)
