Zombie Blaster!: Written iPhone App Review
Zombie Blaster! by bigideas is an app promised to provide iOS users with the thrill of hunting down the undead. Featuring a full arsenal of weapons to ward off these ghoulish invaders, Zombie Blaster claims to be the ideal zombie-fighting app for users of a variety of ages.
Zombie Blaster! is just like its name indicates; the focus in this game is to shoot down invading zombie marauders. All five levels of Zombie Blaster! are based on this basic idea, although your choice of weapons and the location of your town that you’re defending varies from level to level. Additionally, the speed and number of zombies coming towards you at one time during a level also varies, with the first level obviously being the easiest. Zombie Blaster! is basically a constant-action game; there is little to no time between the rising of one zombie and the attack of the next. Music and other background sound effects play throughout this game, but the level of these noises can be adjusted as you like. Shooting and aiming is done through tapping on the screen, and an icon towards the bottom of the screen can be used to switch between weapons. Additional weapons can also be picked up in the scenes of this game, and typically each zombie has to be shot several times before it returns to its grave. Although I experienced a little bit of lag while fighting off the zombies in this game, I felt like the app overall ran pretty smoothly and this lag certainly didn’t prevent me from completely levels.
Appearance and Layout:
The layout of Zombie Blaster! is wonderfully easy to navigate, and I had absolutely no difficulty with personalizing my game settings on the first time that I used it. Zombie Blaster is a horizontally oriented iOS game, and this orientation provides ample room on the screen for providing information about chosen weapons without interfering with your ability to see the incoming zombies. The graphics of Zombie Blaster! are pretty good, particularly for a free app. While these graphics aren’t especially impressively detailed, they are perfectly fitting for a zombie-themed, cartoonish app.
Zombie Blaster! is a free iOS game, leaving no room to complain about its price. While an in-app purchase of zombie heads is optional, this purchase really isn’t needed for users to enjoy the basis features of this game. Overall, for zombie enthusiasts, Zombie Blaster! is probably an app that will be found worthwhile to install on their chosen iOS devices, even if it is a bit laggy at times.
Zombie Blaster! iPhone app requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
