Much like the lockpicking mini-game, attempting to bypass a door's entry keypad will throw the action onto the controller's touch screen and turn the TV view around. I didn't actually get to try this in the demo, and it's unclear exactly how the game works—I'm assuming it's more than just pressing random numbers until you get one right, since the zombies would surely win most times in that case.

Either way, this is a great example of how the Wii U's tablet takes something that would be ordinary on any other system and makes it into something exceptional. There's no better way to make you rush through a mini-game than by letting you watch the brain-munchers approaching from your rear.
