Mika Mobile releases Zombieville USA 2 on Android and brings the original back from the grave [Update: Battleheart too]

Developer Mika Mobile has a long and complicated history with Android. It very publicly dropped support for the platform back in 2012 before slinking back in 2014 with Battleheart Legacy. It launched a new game last week, and now there are two more listings from Mika Mobile—one new and one back from the dead. Yes, Zombieville USA 1 and 2 are on Android.

Battleheart Developer Mika Mobile Returns To Android With Dungeon Crawler 'Battleheart Legacy'

Update: It looks like the developer had some initial problems and has temporarily pulled the game. It should be back up soon.

Back in early 2012, mobile game developer Mika Mobile made the public and controversial decision to stop creating games for Android.

[New Game] Review: Zombieville USA (From The Makers of Battleheart) - Classic Sidescrolling, Modern Bugginess

Earlier today, Mika Mobile, developer of the popular game Battlheart, released their popular iOS title Zombieville USA on the Android Market. You can pick it up now for $2. What exactly is this game? Mindless sidescrolling, shoot/bash-em-up 2D action. This was Mika's first game release, and it's just now been ported to Android. Unfortunately, the gameplay is showing its age, and it's somewhat obvious this game is a hasty iOS port.

Enter The Zombie

Where to begin? When I saw the screenshots for this game, I wasn't exactly enthusiastic about quality. Then again, I'd never heard of Mika Mobile, or Battleheart, until I was informed of its relative popularity by Artem.
