One thing's for sure: over the past several months, there's been no shortage of zombie games. Whether you're going toe-to-toe with the undead in Dead Trigger, using them as motivation in Zombies, Run!, or showing off your green thumb in Plants vs. Zombies, the walking dead are everywhere. It's like a zombie apocalypse without, you know, the apocalypse.

If you're looking for an apocalyptic nightmare that may hit closer to home, however, a new game called Global Outbreak may fit the bill. It uses geolocation to make the game experience local, putting you in charge of zombie genocide in your area. To do the deed, you're in charge of a band of mercenaries, with a range of upgradable weapons at your disposal.

The game is free to play, and judging by the Store comments thus far, it's actually free. That's even better.
