Most everyone knows that there's no shortage of Zombie-themed games in the App Store. From cool photo apps to lighthearted and whimsical romps, it seems like the plethora of Zombie games for iDevices are only adding to the national fervor for the undead. I keep wondering are they (the powers that be) trying to prepare us for something? Well whatever the case may be, conspiracy or not, there’s no denying that Zombies have never been more of a social phenomena. And to celebrate this Halloween, I've rounded up six of the best Zombie First Person Shooters in the App Store.
Be warned though, these aren't your Plants vs Zombies cartoonish fare; the games featured here are graphic and terrifying, not for the faint of heart and not necessarily for young kids. What we have here are six of the most realistically rendered, and graphically depicted horrorfests on iOS. Read on if you are looking for a good Zombie massacre game that will likely keep you up late into the night playing, and then haunt your dreams with terrors of the undead...
The Anki team will be taking a new approach to typical slot car racing games with the release of Anki Drive (Free). The project was originally conceived by a group of PhD students in robotics at Carnegie Mellon University.
Anki CEO Boris Sofman demonstrated the car's ability to steer around the track at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference "by doing the same computations your brain does when you drive." By focusing on steering, sensors, and controls software, Anki was able to engineer a different kind of racing experience.
Paranormal Hotel HD (Free, $6.99 to unlock full game) is yet another G5 adventure game. Like many of the newer releases, it gravitates towards the actual adventure side of things with few mini-games and no hidden object scenes. The story is captivating, but the game play isn’t quite as strong as what I’ve come to expect from G5’s adventure offerings. There seems to be a lot of back and forth and dialogs with not so much puzzle solving in between. It still keeps me wanting to play, but more because I’m curious about what’s going to happen rather than looking forward to the next set of puzzles to solve.
Alien Shooter Ex Free) is the new mobile launch from RNTS Media, and this ambitious 3D alien annihilation adventure aims high. An expansive 3D environment, missions similar to RPG quests, major character development, a complex storyline, tons of savage slaughtering, and so much more. It’s a lot to pack onto a small screen, and an even greater challenge to end up with something as immersive as the end product. Alien Shooter Ex is a continuation of the Alien Shooter franchise, which some gamers will be familiar with from its PC incarnations. The original game became an instant cult classic. Perhaps the best decision RNTS Media's made for the game was to port it to a variety of mobile platforms. Alien Shooter Ex is the new mobile expansion on the Alien Shooter theme, which involves an alien invasion via teleportation experiments gone wrong.
