As I watched advertisements for Lollipop
Chainsaw and, eventually, as I reviewed the game, I couldn't help but imagine a
few improvements. The game's juxtaposition of classic tropes of femininity
(sparkles and flouncy ruffled skirts) with hardcore horror (zombies and

Grasshopper Studios, who is credited with the weird and violent Killer7 and No More Heroes, is the guy who plans to reinvent the zombie genre with Lollipop Chainsaw
