Review: I Saw Her Standing There by Krang Games

February 13, 2014 | By | 1 Comment

I Saw Her Standing There is a simple platform game that depicts the obstacles that a man must go through to in order to love a zombie.


Have you ever wondered if zombies fell in love? What would happen if a human fell in love with a zombie? Since it is Valentine’s day, a day of love, I figured I’d play a game just about that! I Saw Her Standing There is a game, developed by krangGAMES, that depicts the story of a man who falls in love with a girl who happens to be a zombie.

Being in love with a zombie has some negative qualities. The player plays as the man, who is unable to touch his love and must keep her in a cage. She tends to escape the cage often (but he loves her for her mischief) so you must lead her back there without letting the zombie touch you. When your player gets close to the zombie, who is fashionably pink, the zombie begins to follow you. That way, it is fairly easy to get the zombie back into its cage. Over time, however, obstacles start making themselves apparent.

At first, it is just some lifts that you must get your zombie on to get it down to the cage, but soon more zombies come and follow you when you get near them. Later, these zombie gang up and follow you as a soon as you get near the girl. They are looking out for their own kind and afraid that you may harm the girl. Since you are not a zombie, you cannot explain that you are in love with her, not hurting her. Soon, you even are able to get guns and use them to eliminate every other zombie in the way, which the girl does not seem to mind.

The graphics to this game are very minimalistic, but look quite pleasant. The music is also some of the calmest, greatest, music I have ever heard in a simple platform game. The story itself is what hooked me however. Each short level starts off with one sentence, part of the story, and upon completing that level, that sentence is finished. Each bit of the story revealing hardships and happy times in this unusual relationship. However, the man starts to wonder if he can even really be together with a zombie, something that he can not touch and has to lock in a cage.That is when the man decides to also become a zombie. Becoming a zombie to be with his loved one seems to be the only answer. The end of the story let’s us know that every human on earth died, but that is okay, because the zombie couple lived and was happily ever after.

After the first completion of the game, you unlock loads of cool hacks, including one that lets you fly for the duration of the game, one that gives the zombies and humans huge heads, a mode that gives you a perma gun or messes up your current gun, and even a mode that makes all the other zombies jump like you do. This game will take you through the story of two very unlikely couples that in the end, end up happiest of all. Play I Saw Her Standing There for yourself and enjoy this happy little love tale.
