Zombie: The Rescue: iPhone Written App Review
It’s been a few months since we’ve had a new zombie app around these parts, so it was actually a nice surprise to see Zombie: The Rescue from GOGN Entertainment come across our desks. Don’t worry, although this title may seem to indicate zombies coming to the rescue, this game still has a healthy dose of zombie slaying action. Find out what it’s all about in our iPhone app review of Zombie: The Rescue.
In Zombie: The Rescue your job is to navigate 60 maze style levels, using strategy and the occasional special weapon to collect keys, save stranded civilians and escape patrolling zombies. Let’s put it this way. If the zombie apocalypse happened tomorrow, this game’s hero is the kind of fella you’d like to have on your side. Mostly, you’ll be busy trying to avoid being seen by a zombie and completing rescue missions, but sometimes that will mean opening up a big ole can of zombie killing to clear the way. It’s always refreshing to see those brain-hungry greenies biting the big one.
Zombie: The Rescue is deceptively addictive. Game controls are super simple, but the boards are quite smart. The types of zombies you’ll encounter vary as you play. Even the hostages change as you progress through the app. This is an extremely well thought out game that’s a ton of fun to play.
It also integrates with Game Center, so you can keep tabs on top scores around the world.
Layout & Design:
While the levels are intelligently designed, the game also shines due to sharp graphics and a wide variety of zones. Each set of 12 levels is broken up into a different area, so there’s plenty of variety there. We think the zombie theme could have been pushed a little further in the app design and navigation.
Even though this is the first English version of Zombie: The Rescue, the translation is pretty tight. We didn’t see any glaring language issues.
Navigating the app is straightforward. Just follow the arrows. As we mentioned earlier, the game controls are extremely easy to use. Just touch your rescuer and drag a line to show them where to move. It’s that simple.
We think Zombie: The Rescue is an awesome value. It’s zombie-themed action is addictive, the graphics are sharp and the price is right. Adding it to your game line up is only going to run you $.99. This is the kind of game that’s perfect for casual pickup games, and it’s smart enough to hold our attention for an extended period of time. We highly suggest giving Zombie: The Rescue a go.
Zombie: The Rescue iPhone app requires iOS 4.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
