Zombies Ate My Neighbors (renamed Zombies in Europe and Australia due to censorship issues) is a 1993 run and gun video game for the Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis and Super NES platforms. The game was originally developed, distributed, and produced by LucasArts as a comical tribute to both classic and horror films of the 1950s through the 1980s. It was published by Konami.
The game follows the protagonists Zeke and Julie as they battle monsters with an assortment of peculiar weapons. They must fight through over fifty top-down levels and rescue civilians in each world. By saving the people from the monsters, the player can advance to the next level.
