DOA2-Thumb

The inevitable Zombie apocalypse has begun again, but for the time being, the outbreak is quarantined to Australia and New Zealand. Developers N3V Games are proud to work Down Under and are giving gamers in both countries a week of exclusive quality time with the title before launching the game elsewhere on September 23. In the meantime, Dead on Arrival 2 is available for all to see in the Play Store. For most of us, though, it's look, don't touch.

Dead on Arrival 2 is a sequel years in the making. The original twin-stick, top-down shooter was a bloody and violent treat for zombie fans with an insatiable need to slay the undead while on the go. It was attractive, easy to play, and set the appropriate mood for mindless slaughter. The sequel, which requires a device with at least Tegra 2 (or equivalent) to run, is set to improve on all of these areas. It's also launching a multiplayer mode, which has been in private beta since spring.

Dead on Arrival 2's multiplayer is cross platform, and the game supports gamepads ranging from the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 controllers to the Moga series and NVIDIA SHIELD. An Ouya version is also in the works. So if you're ready to handle the situation a second time - in Australia or New Zealand - rush over to the Play Store now. Everyone else, it's time to arm up. The zombies aren't here yet, but they're coming.

    I want Zombies Ate My Neighbors on a portable system already! I meant what the heck?! Why did Konami never make a sequel? Why is there no Android version? Why not create a port and sell it for $2.99 and make some money rather than have an old property sit in the bin? I have no idea why some companies don't want to make money?

    Anyway as for DOA2 it says game is not compatible but then again you said it won't be available to the world until a few days? How was the first one? Anything like Zombies Ate My Neighbors? Or is it more similar to Gun Bros?

    Pretty much dead trigger with an isometric view and some decent graphics. The game is very polished, but it does not bring anything to the table that we have not seen before and yes zombies ate my neighbors to this day eats other zombie games for lunch!

    the controls were horrible in the BETA version, I hope they've solved that.
