Return Of The Mobile Undead
Posted 6 months ago By - Michael Dulson
This is the time of year where the dark and scary things that go bump in the night are a good thing. In keeping with the season, I have selected a few of my favorite mobile games featuring zombies for you to check out and play while you are out and about, picking all the supplies you need for our scariest of holidays!
First on the list is Age of Zombies. A dual stick zombie shooter from the company who brought us the Fruit Ninja franchise and Jetpack Joyride. Halfbrick gives zombie fans a real treat in Age of Zombies. You play as Barry Steakfries and it’s up to you to shoot zombies from different time periods (Such as the stone age, the 1930s, and ancient Egypt) and save the day! The idea of going through time and killing zombies is a lot of fun, and it’s refreshing to see the undead crawl out of the different time periods, especially since developers are putting Nazi zombies in almost every title these days. If you are looking for a new take on the zombie shooter, check out Age of Zombies, available on the App Store, Google Play, and as a PlayStation Mini.
Free 2 Die, originally known as Left 2 Die, is another twin-stick zombie shooter but with zombies that look like cartoon versions of Left 4 Dead’s special infected . With over 60 single-player missions, an endless survival mode, and online multiplayer, this one really shines. The multiplay is arguably the biggest standout with this package, with you and a friend taking on the undead for as long as possible. With lots of unlockables, achievements, and online leaderboards, Free 2 Die is great for those who are looking for a portable zombie-killer that shares its spirit with Left 4 Dead.
Zombieville USA, one of the first games I played on an iTouch, is a 2D side scroller. There is no story here. You start out by choosing a character, then you keep going until you lose. It is one of the best pick up and play games I’ve ever played. Zombieville USA is very simple and a lot of fun. The art behind Zombieville is what really throws it above the rest because of its simplicity. Not being overburdened by a ton of eye candy and features is incredibly effective here, and it deserves to be in your game library. It’s available on both the App Store and Google Play. While you’re at it, check out the sequel on the App Store as well.
That should be enough zombie killing to get your scare fix in while waiting on all the ghouls and goblins to come for all your candy. Have a fun and safe Halloween everyone!
