A new achievement list for a rerelease of Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse on Xbox consoles has been spotted.
The original Xbox title looks to be a port from developer Aspyr Media, who recently handled the Star Wars Episode 1 Racer port/remake on modern consoles.



Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse, developed by Wideload Games and published by Aspyr Media, first launched back in 2005 on the original Xbox console and Windows PCs. You play as Edward "Stubbs" Stubblefield, a travelling salesman who is killed by his girlfriend's father. A quarter of a century later, Stubbs rises from his grave to enact revenge on the living by creating his own army of the undead. Gameplay revolves around bringing the city of Punchbowl, PA to its knees. To do this, you'll use Stubbs' "bodily arsenal of zombie sputum, gut grenades, and the stunning unholy flatulence" to kill and convert humans to your undead alliance.

Comes back from the dead in order to die again. I just can't see anyone buying this, the minimal effort put in the port probably won't help much.

The original is pricey? I have it but not really played it back when it came out.

I remember trying out the demo when it first came out , i was pretty excited since it was developed by some ex-bungie devs.

It was mediocre. Stiff gameplay, washed up colours, uninteresting design.
Nowadays it's probably bordeline unbearable.

Maybe it's just me , but for the price they released it at I'm happy to play this. It is so minimalist and short that compared to most games that require hours of collecthons, or sub systems or skill systems to enjoy a game is just tiring .

Then this game just .... is refreshing for 2021 ? I know it doesn't look good and barebones, but it is so fun eating brains as a zombie. If they could make a sequel with a bit more crowd and maybe a longer story that would be fun.

Something about Dreamcast Guy just annoys me. Can’t listen to him. His lack of a Dreamcast knowledge doesn’t help either.
He was ok at first, then he started doing clickbait in every video title. And close ups of his face.
