Zombie Smasher HD: Written iPhone Game App Review
Until the dreaded zombie apocalypse finally comes around, it seems our fad with the fabled critters isn’t going to wane anytime soon. There’s nothing wrong with that, though, because it means we get to watch cool TV shows and play great games on our iDevices.
Concept and Gameplay:
The whole goal of the game is to roll the smasher, an upgradeable steel ball, around the screen. The smasher is controlled by tilting your phone, making this a very interactive and fun game.
The visual quality and graphics of Zombie Smasher HD are pretty impressive. It’s fairly easy to spot zombies crawling around a level, and the added gore of squished zombie guts is a nice touch. This is definitely a game which is easy to get immersed in. Zombie Smasher HD includes 30 levels, each with their own objectives. Whether it’s slaying a certain number of zombies or performing a cool killing trick, you need to complete the given tasks in order to advance to the next level.
Though there are quite a few tricks your smasher can perform, it doesn’t take much time to figure out how to kill zombies quickly and efficiently. There are basic information bars such as health, magic, and score, along with quick access to special moves your smasher can perform. You can also accumulate score multipliers, earning you more cash at the end of each level.
I do want to mention that there’s a bit of swearing in the game (such as when you kill a large number of zombies at once), so I definitely don’t recommend this for young players. I’m actually a bit surprised this game doesn’t require you to be 17 or older in order to play.
One of the things I like the most about Zombie Smasher HD is the fact that there are so many unique zombies and ways you have to kill them. As you progress through the game, you have to remember exactly which move is needed in order to kill certain species. Therefore, quite a bit of strategy is required. Plus the developers promise to add more zombies with game updates.
Looking for added killing power? Simply upgrade your smasher in the Zombie Smasher HD store. From skill upgrades to reduced cooldowns and added items, you can spend the money earned at the end of each level and create the ultimate zombie killing machine.
Lastly, If you end up dying before completing your second objective, you don’t have to worry about the objective you’ve already completed. This definitely saves a ton of frustration and time.
Even at $1.99, Zombie Smasher HD is worth the price. From the number of levels to the complexity of the game, this is definitely a game you won’t buzz through in an hour. As I mentioned before, this is NOT for younger players. However, older players who are looking for as much gore as they can get will surely enjoy this new game.
Zombie Smasher HD is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
