MikaMobile's first iPhone game was released into the App Store today and should appeal to zombie-fanatics everywhere. Zombieville USA [App Store] is a simple but nicely illustrated survival shooter in which you must defend your town from zombies.

As the lone survivor of a zombie apocalypse, it's up to you to battle legions of the undead in a never ending fight for survival! How long can you hold out? Scrounge for cash and ammunition, and buy up to 15 upgradeable weapons as your inevitable doom closes in around you...

The developer says he was influenced by both Castle Crashers and Alien Hominid.

The game is a deceptively simple survival shooter in which you must kill as many zombies as possible with your limited ammo and weapons. Jumping into houses will protect you from the zombies for a little while but in the end you need to make it to the end of the level to progress. Cash and ammo can be accumulated in houses and killing zombies will also increase your cash reserve. Cash can later be used to buy weapon upgrades between levels.

While the game's mechanic stays the same throughout, there is a bit more depth than first apparent. Judicious use of your ammo is critical to avoid being overcome by zombies. I'm still struggling the find the right balance between shooting more zombies (earning more cash, using more ammo) vs making my way through the level (longer survival, less cash for upgrades) but very much enjoying the challenge.

Controls are left/right buttons to move, tap bottom to shoot, and tap on door to enter house.

There have been a few scattered reports of instability, but I personally had no issues when played on a 1st gen iPhone.

    I skipped it......for now. Hopefully the price stays stable, and I'll pick it up.

    I skipped it too, i dont see it worth for $2.99. it does not meant that i not supporting iphone/itouch game developers, in fact i did support them which provide value to money games like BIA, HOS, EXZEUS, SLOTZ R and etc, i already spend $300 in less than 2 months after i get my iTouch 2G.

    It look fun but i hope then price should be around $1.99 or maybe on sale $0.99 for few days or hours.

    Thanks

      Oh it is arguably the best game for the ipod touch.

    Awesome Game, just picked it up today.

    Got to level 11, a few issues though.

    Other than that its awesome.

    Worth the price I think.

    • iPoWNaGe

      well, you know there are many strategies to this game as you can do basically anything. IE: hide in a house all the time then wait to strike,go to the end and then wait for zombies or just go through the level. i got this game on my iPod touch about 1 week ago and i realized that this game was intriguing. This game had so many strategies i loved it. I also love to eat soap. This is a very interesting thing. I found you may change the settings to easy, normal or insane!. I play insane! and insane! only. i have made it to level 126 killing 121159 zombies if you have any questions please cal me at my number. 18005225633

      • Will

        Lies.

      • Jacob

        I know you are lying for I have gotten to level 99, after which it constantly repeats 99 over and over again, making it impossible to go in the hundreds... But still, I doubt someone can even get to 99 on insane, for I did it on easy with the ninja. Strategy:
        1. Use ninja! He is the only one who can outrun many green zombs at the high levels 75+
        2. at those high levels(starting around lvl 50) you can only use laser or rocket launcher. Dont try to kill the zombies! only kill the white ones because they will catch up to u.
        3. Only laser or rocket launcher. The laser is shot right before a zomb reaches you, stunning the zomb as you pass by him unharmed. The rocket launcher is also shot before the zomb reaches you, catapulted it behind you. Make sure to go in every house for ammo, and only buy laser or rocket ammo (your preference, i prefer rockets, my friend prefers laser... we both made it to 99 on easy.)

        Good Luck!

    Just got it, the animation were too nice to pass :)
    The game is certainly worth its price tag, but it also will need an update, it has too little contents to keep it from getting old quickly, and it needs a little balancing as it is a bit frustrating right now.
    This one is certainly worth keeping an eye on and buying, if you don't mind a little frustration and a little wait for an update.

    My son played it, and we couldn't find a way to save his progress. A game that doesn't offer saves and doesn't let you resume is an unfinished game. Is this really the case? If so, I'm getting really tired of stuff rushed out the door unfinished, lacking such basic functionality.

    The animation is too FREAKING awesome! Unfortunately, is that all there is?? "Almost" worth it just for the visuals which make me laugh, but.. at least give us a little more.

    .99 in current stage, 2.99 if they add more things to do.

    I just thought of a HUGE loophole in this game's plot. If this man is the lone survivor... uh, why is he PAYING for ammo? Why doesnt he just loot the stores?

    • Matt

      Because it's a game, of course.
      What fun would the game be if there was no incentive to kill lots of zombies?
      And besides, he does loot the houses for ammo and money.

      • walker

        well, maybe he's just buying from some sort of a vending machine that sells guns, knives and flamethrowers. but then he could just smash the glass. IDK

    The latest update is now available! Unlimited use of three melee weapons (a free baseball bat to start, sledgehammer and katana for purchased upgrades) has been added. Also, a new control system is available, although you can stick to "classic" controls. It is possible to play entirely in melee, but its main use is to knock back enemies who are too close (and zombies NEVER respect personal space). Kudos to Mikamobile for keeping their game interesting and always a great time-waster.

    I have an old friend going back 38 years.

    His nick name is still Zombie and even these days, he can't get going too fast.

    He works for a College Post Office, and his Supervisor said that if he runs late.
    His Supervisor will say, Okay Zombie it time to get up.

    Therefore, Zombie rarely runs late.he has been their for 15 years, and is very loyal hard worker. yet, if he does run late, then he must make up the time.

    It is not that his Supervisor would give him a break, it is a budget crunch,
    and besides. Zombie mention that the time cards is on the computer.
