Lollipop Chainsaw is a comedy horror video game that features a collaboration between game designer Suda51 and filmmaker James Gunn. The game follows Juliet Starling (voiced by Tara Strong), a cheerleader zombie hunter fighting hordes of zombies in a fictional California high school. Juliet can use melee attack, dodges and high and low attacks with her chainsaw. Zombies can be beaten into a groggy state, during which they can instantly be killed with a chainsaw attack. Gold medals can be earned by defeating zombies, smashing objects and rescuing classmates. These medals can be spent at Chop2Shop.zom stores found throughout each level where Juliet can purchase new moves and combos, as well as items that can increase her stats. Throughout the game, Juliet can also collect lollipops which allow her to recover health.
