Hit the Zombies: Written & Video iPhone App Review
The Undead. Walkers. Zombies. These names and more are all used to describe the horrific, and sometimes humorous, living dead monsters that populate so many games today. Newly released in this genre is Hit the Zombies, featuring a myriad of zombie smashing fun on the iOS!
Remember going to Chuck-E-Cheese back in the day and playing the old ‘Whack a Mole’ game? That’s the basic idea of Hit the Zombies. You’ll be presented with a variety of maps, with many holes on each map. Zombies will pop up from each hole, then pop right back down. As you progress through the levels, you will find that different kinds of zombies appear. Some will be more armored than others, including ones that will take off their helmet’s spikes from time to time.
You will have to be quick though, as these zombies will pop back under down without leaving you much time at all! You’ll need to be careful though-hit the ‘wrong’ zombie (one covered with armor, etc) or tap an empty hole, and you’ll be dinged points. However, if you hit the right ones fast enough, you’ll get into a super powered mode, complete with flashing backgrounds, almost like you’ve run a good set of combos!
There are also many different special weapons and items to use, all to better take out the popping up zombies! Score points and advance through each level by beating the zombies in the right amount of time. That’s Hit the Zombies in a nutshell! I found the game play to be pretty addicting, fast-paced, and quite fun. No lag or other problems were encountered when I played it on my iPhone and iPad as well.
Graphics in Hit the Zombies are pretty well done. They are bright, colorful, and just entertaining enough to keep in with the zombie theme. The different outfits (armor, etc) of the zombies look great and help keep each zombie level exciting. Audio is great too, with a catchy beat lacing through Hit the Zombies.
Hit the Zombies is a super app! I enjoyed the fast-paced game play, the colorful cartoon graphics, and the variety in levels. It’s also a really nicely priced, at only $0.99 on release day, making it a splendid bargain of an app. Hit the Zombies is a perfect app for any zombie gamer looking for a little light fun on the iOS!
Hit the Zombies iPhone app requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review, as well as a video production fee.
