You're fighting a zobmie
This is a zobmie. He superficially resembles the zmobie, but is different in many subtle ways revealed only to the discerning eye. Two of which you don't possess.
Critical Hit Message:
He gouges you in the <forehead> with his filthy undead fingernails. Eek! Oof! (spooky damage)
He shambles toward you, moaning "braaaaaaains," but stumbles right past you. He stepped on your foot, though. Ugh! Ooh! (spooky damage)
He grabs your skull and starts munching on your brains. You forget the piano lessons you had as a child. Oof! Argh!
He punhces you square in the throat. You've never been punhced so hard in your lief. Eek! Ugh! (spooky damage)
He suddenly snaps and goes from a shamble to a sprint. He leaps on you, clawing and biting. What kind of a zobmie can move like that? Argh! Ow! (spooky damage)
He tries to gouge you with his filthy undead fingernails, but you quickly give him an undead manicure.
He shambles toward you, moaning "braaaains," but you move aside and let him go through.
He grabs your skull and tries to munch your brains, but thankfully you're too hard-headed.
He tries to punhc you in the <forehead>, but is moving too slow to connect.
He suddenly snaps and goes from a shamble to a sprint. He leaps at you, flailing his arms rapidly. Fortunately, all that action puts too much stress on his decaying body and he collapses.
