Description: I can’t say that I have information about where and how it starts but there is not much left from humanity. I know that there were only 182 people at last count. Since the world has changed we shut ourselves in the safe place. To stay alive we are growing plants. Most of the time we put ourselves in danger and try to supply our needs. We create our own team but we only have 2 doctors in our team Jeni and Sam.Dr. Jeni and Sam try to find the virus that causes humans to mutate.

To find the cure for the virus Dr Jeni and Sam needs to work on the first generation thoroughbred creatures. To work on them they need our help. We often go to the place, where the creatures are intense, to catch them. Even if we killed hundreds there are still thousands of them around us. I know that they are careful about research but they need more time to complete. Day by day the attack of the creatures getting more often and they become more intelligent. We have to kill as many creatures as possible and keep ourselves in safe until they find the cure.

You know the rules and what to do. Don’t make much noise it cause them to come more. Be careful and make sure that you are safe. One-shot to the head is enough to kill most of them. Hurry up, complete your mission and come back.

Review: Smell of Death is a great-looking first-person zombie shooter that has a lot of potential behind it and one day I could easily see it become an instant VR classic. But sadly that day is not today and it has a lot of problems. While the scenery and design of the zombies are pretty good, the animation and AI of them is atrocious as is some of the bugs like being able to teleport through the scenery. It is the little annoying things that stop this game from becoming something great, but with just a few updates, those annoying things can indeed be sorted out. I’m not telling you do not download this game at all, I am saying it might be best to wait for it to get better, or buy it now to support the developer an make the chances of those updates happening increase.
