Zombicide: Tactics & Shotguns, a new digital board game adaptation from Asmodee Digital

Asmodee Digital offers quite a few mobile adaptations of popular board games on the Google Play Store, and today the studio has released yet another high-profile title on Android and iOS. Zombicide: Tactics & Shotguns is the company's latest release, and it's based off the collaborative board game Zombicide, though it's not a 1:1 translation like many of the studio's titles. Instead, this new single-player release serves as a post-apocalyptic tactical RPG.

Deep Silver finally gets around to releasing 'Dead Island: Survivors' on Android

Dead Island: Survivors has been available as a soft-launched title on iOS since 2016, and the Android beta followed right along with it. As an Android user, I had all but forgotten about its existence in the last two years since the beta was not available to me in my region. It's not uncommon for iOS and Android games to sit in testing for a while, but two years is kind of pushing it. I suppose that could explain why Deep Silver FISHLABS officially released this on the down-low. Still, if you are looking for a free-to-play zombie-themed tower defense game that also contains plenty of action RPG gameplay and base building, Dead Island: Survivors should cover your needs just fine.

Zombie Gunship: Survival lays down covering fire for its arrival in the Play Store

Most zombie apocalypse games assume you'll have limited resources, but Zombie Gunship: Survival gives you access to an AC-130 aircraft and unlimited ammunition because, I mean, why not? The original Zombie Gunship was just level after level of blasting zombies, but the sequel adds a few new reasons to blast zombies. Some of them are good, and some not so much.

Dead Effect 2 Lets You Chop Up Space Zombies With A Space Katana (In Space)

You can't swing a severed limb around on the Play Store without hitting half a dozen zombie games, and first person shooters (even high-end variants like Unkilled) aren't exactly thin on the ground. But you might want to give Dead Effect 2, the sequel to a 2013 science fiction-horror shooter, a second look anyway. While the premise isn't exactly original, falling somewhere between Alien and Dead Space, the sheer variety and polish makes it worth consideration from Android gamers.

First of all, the game seems to have a much tighter focus on storytelling than other zombie shooters. You pick up right where the last game left off, on a derelict spaceship crawling with undead crewmembers and other, more elaborate monsters - think Doom 3 with iron sights.
