Ok, I know what you’re thinking, and yes the zombie thing has been really played out already. But the fact remains that the walking dead make perfect cannon fodder for shooters. And in the case of the upcoming Call of Mini: Zombies from Triniti Games, the theme is pulled off with just enough style that I might actually be able to tolerate yet another zombie game.
Call of Mini is a 3rd-person dual-stick shooter. I think our forum members said it best, noting that the gameplay looked like Battle Bears -1 [99¢/Lite] mixed with Minigore [Free/HD] with a little bit of the upcoming game Deadlock peppered in by way of upgradeable weapons and gear. Take a look at the trailer to judge for yourself:
According to the developer, there will be 13 different weapons in Call of Mini, 8 playable character types each with their own distinct traits, and 12 types of zombie breeds to blast away at. It will also contain full Game Center support with leaderboards and achievements as well as Retina Display and universal iPad support.
No other details are known regarding single player modes or the inclusion of multiplayer, but Call of Mini is set to release sometime this month so we won’t have to wait too long to find out more. Based on the trailer it looks like it could be pretty cool, and players in our forums seem to agree. We’ll keep an eye out for Call of Mini: Zombies and take a closer look once it hits the App Store later this month.
