It seems like most deadlines in the wide world of apps tend to slip, but this time Glu Mobile was relatively true to its word. When CoD: Black Ops Zombies was released in early August, we were told that the Sony device exclusivity would last 30 days. Well, it's been just barely over that and the game has been opened up to more devices. If you've got zombie killing on the brain, this is for you.
Several weeks ago, Zombies, Run! gave our own Eric Ravenscraft a much-needed trip outside the house while he reviewed the unique workout/game hybrid. After using the application for several days, he came away impressed with it, though questioned its $8 price tag. If you share his sentiments, now may be the time to splurge and grab the download, as the price is down to just $3 until tomorrow.
For those who may not already know, Zombies, Run!
Sometimes, a game comes along that is so bizarre, so weird, so completely out there that it's difficult to describe just how strange it is. This isn't one of them. In this game, a unicorn teaches you how to use farts to kill zombies. Duh. Of course some walkers only react to certain types of flatulence. Everyone knows this. That's why we have unicorn trainers.
The gameplay is very similar to the Plants Vs.
The popular iOS game came to the Play Store yesterday, and allows players to work with each other and take down hoards of zombies with whatever weapons they can find. Machine gun, chainsaw, rocket launcher, anything goes.
As well as a co-op mode, the game also allows you to play against other people in VS mode, from which you can gain various rewards.
The Men Who Wear Many Hats may have struck undead gold with their debut entry into Google's Play Store. Organ Trail is pretty much what it sounds like – a take on the classic nostalgia-fest that is the Oregon Trail, but with zombies, bandits, and an upgradeable station wagon. The game, which started on the web, hit Android recently, delivering the same epic experience players of the original would expect.
The long-awaited undead makeover to Glu Mobile's insanely popular first-person shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies, just landed in the Play Store. Fantastic, right? Yep! If you have a Sony Xperia Play, S, or Ion.
That's right - Glu decided to give select Xperia devices a first go at Black Ops Zombies. The rest of us won't get our hands on this living-dead action shoot-em-up for another month.
When you're creating a game, there are a few key things you need to include: a good atmosphere (be it an intriguing story or just some wildly immersive effects), good gameplay mechanics, and a good hook. What's going to grab the users' attention? Well, for Gears and Guts, all three of those requirements can be summed up with "driving cars into zombies." Oh, and did I mention there's a sweet soundtrack to go along with it?
A little while ago, Madfinger Games pushed a pretty major update to its new zombie-filled apocalyptic first-person shooter Dead Trigger. This update brought new weapons, arenas, levels, and zombies; it also brought an unexpected perk: a new price of free.
Now you can get in on all of the action without paying a dime. Of course, if you still want to show the developers some love (which I highly recommend), you can also do so through the in-app purchasing system.
Update: It's live now in the Play Store. Get it!
A major update is coming to everyone's favorite zombified first person shooter for Android. You want more blood? More guns? More zombies? More awesome? Check, check, and check.
Madfinger packed DT's first big update full of fun stuff - everything from chainsaws to repeating rifles, there are even more ways to slay the undead. That's not all, either; there are new environments, new zombies, and even a casino so you can play the slots.
Once in a while, an Angry Birds or Temple Run comes along in the mobile gaming sphere. Games that are able to hook you with their simple but endlessly entertaining mechanics, and an ability to immediately "dive in" to the game at any time, even if for just 5 minutes (or 3 hours).
The problem with those games is that they're generally aimed at an audience that has never played video games, or has but doesn't actually love them.
