Halfbrick, creators of Fruit Ninja [99¢ / HD], Monster Dash [99¢] released a new trailer for their next iPhone game today, Age of Zombies. This dual stick shooter actually started its life as a PSP Mini earlier this year, and while it was yet another zombie game and yet another dual stick shooter, it still was reviewed quite well.

The iOS version of the game is launching on the 28th as a universal app, and features new graphics, controls, and content not found in the original PSP game.

Check out the trailer:

I had a great time with Monster Dash, so it's hard to not get excited to see yet another game starring Barry Steakfries. We'll post a review as soon as the game is available.

    Hm, as much as I like the other Halfbrick games - I don't see how this is different from Minigore except for the gfx and some minor gameplay elements. Granted I didn't play to original so I might be wrong...

  • starmonkey

    so it's minigore with more environments...?

      When posting stuff like this regarding dual stick shooters wouldn't it be more accurate to say "So it's Robotron:2084 with __________?" Minigore didn't invent the dual stick shooter game by any means. ;)

        I approve of this message.

        -Robotron2084

        lol sure? I really have no idea what that is... It guess it is the first duel stick shooter? Minigore is just in my realm of knowlege.

        Kudos to Eli for reminding me about Robotron 2084. Although, technically, it isn't "dual stick shooter" but "multidirectional shooter". But that's nitpicking. A more important issue: why in the heck don't we have Robotron 2084 on iOS? That and Smash TV. Oh, when I think of how many quarters I spent playing those games as a kid....

    I'm pretty exited about it as it looks like there is a wide variety of baddy types and weapons as well as terrain that actually effects play (i.e. not like Minigore's meaningless backgrounds that have no effect whatsoever on play).

    This is just one of a few games I play on the PSP. Now that Barry's original game has come to the iPhone my gaming life is complete! Go Steakfries Go!

  • Frobots

    There's nothing to do in this game, right?

  • Zevious

    Looks like its got some nice improvments over the PSP version (which I've played on the PS3). Its now a "real" dual stick shooter as opposed to using the buttons for shooting. As far as there being nothing to do in the game...I suppose thats true...just like any other videogame. Its more like a combination of Zombies Ate My Neighboors and Minigore really...

  • Mr. Saturn

    While Minigore didn't invent dual stick, I believe it perfected it.

  • spiffyone

    Well, there goes a game for PSP that I can cross off my list. No real reason to get it for that system now that it'll be on iPhone/touch. Multidirectional shooters/dual stick shooters are one genre that REALLY makes the whole touch screen interface shine. Even dual analogs can't compare to the ease of control afforded on a multitouch screen interface.

    No more zombies please. Just stop it.

    The best 2-sticks shooter is Solomon's Keep. Easily better than minigore or anything else for that matter on the iOS.
