Meridian has submitted their latest game for approval in the App Store. Alive 4-Ever is a dual-stick zombie shooter but the developers claim it's "definitely more than a shooting game". And based on the description and video, it seems that's clearly the case.
Alive 4-Ever is a zombie shooter in which players have a selection of 4 different characters coming from different backgrounds, trying to rescue hopeless survivors from a small town that was attacked by a deadly virus which turns dead people into zombies. Sounds pretty familiar, but there's more.
Besides the shooting component, Alive 4-ever has added other different elements like rescuing survivors and searching for vaccines, which highly increased the longevity of the game.
The game also offers bluetooth multiplayer allowing up to 4 person cooperative play. 30 missions are offered that includes goals such as eliminating a given amount of zombies, rescuing survivors in a given time frame, getting vaccines, defeating the big boss. There are 16 weapons in all that can be purchased throughout the game, and player experience points accrued can be used to upgrade basic player stats.
Meridian has provided us with this exclusive gameplay video which shows off boss fights, rescuing survivors and more:
While survival shooters have been a very popular genre in the App Store, so far, every release has seemed to lack the depth that we've been wanting. Alive 4-Ever seems like it could finally fulfill that desire. We'll take an in-depth look when its released. Alive 4-Ever has been submitted to the App Store for approval and will be released at $2.99.
