Working Stiffs Walkthrough

People familiar with basic biology know that viruses mutate over time, which is why plagues originally adapted to animals (such as swine flu and avian flu) can potentially become dangerous to humans. Luckily, computer viruses are not able to mutate and cause medical harm to humans. This is not the case in the world of Working Stiffs, however, where a computer virus spread from an e-mail attachment has infected an entire office building!

Working Stiffs features fifteen challenging levels, each with their own objectives. Objectives range from simply escaping to an exit, to finding survivors, to defeating powerful enemies, and more. When all objectives of a level have been completed, the next will be unlocked. Your progress is automatically saved in this zombie game, so you can continue from where you left off the next time that you play.

The control scheme of Working Stiffs is slightly reminiscent of an old war game, Cannon Fodder. Click on the screen to make your characters move to that location. You may click and drag for continuous movement. Characters will automatically shoot at enemies that get in range. This zombie game's control scheme is unique, but the pathfinding of the AI-controlled survivors in the party seems off at times, so you will probably find yourself retracing your steps to get everyone back in the group. It may help to move slowly to allow the computer-controlled characters to keep up.

In order to survive in Working Stiffs, it is best to keep your party as far away from zombies as possible. Try to find a weapon for each member of your party as soon as possible to give them all a fighting chance. It is best to keep your group together and employ a mixture of short-ranged weapons such as shotguns and submachine guns and long-ranged weapons such as hunting rifles. The short-ranged weapons can deal with enemies close-by with their high rates of fire while long-ranged weapons can snipe enemies from afar. Although it is best to stay as far away from enemies as possible, it is a bad idea to equip your group with only long-ranged weapons since they tend to have slow firing rates.

Working Stiffs is a fun game, but it is also a warning of the dangers of not following directions in the office. If you don't want to start a zombie outbreak like the one in this zombie game, then don't open strange e-mail attachments, no matter how awesome they say the kittens are!
