Earlier this morning, Eli and I spent some time with Gameloft's Zombiewood [Free]. It's a dual-stick zombie shooter that tasks you with killing a bunch of zombies across a variety of scenarios. In one level, you'll defend a boy as he runs around an undead-laden town. In another, you'll put out fires while the dead harass you. The scenario design in general is one of this game's high points, surprisingly. You'll always be doing something.

As you play, you'll level up your dude and gain access to newer, bigger, better, and increasingly more outrageous weapons that can be upgraded with the game's currency. As with most free-to-play titles, there's also a "control" currency that's rarely dished out, but is necessary for the best weapons and, oddly, support stuff.

We're still gathering our thoughts on this one, but we're high on the game so far. If you like shooting zombies and dual-stick shooters, considering give it a whirl.

    Zombies aka Humans You Can Kill While Still Being a Family-Friendly Game. Will civilization ever find a new metaphor?

    How about a useful, on topic post:

    I stayed away from this one due to the largely negative reviews onthe forums (mostly IAP criticisms) but gave it a shot last night and I'm actually enjoying it a lot. It's pretty fun and I feel like the "grinding" isn't as bad as a lot of the forum members made it seem.

      Don't pay any attention to those complainers. A game is free they whine. A game cost $7-$10 they complain even more. They the 10% every salesmen dread and every women try to avoid.

      I played it today and although graphics are really nice, gameplay is shit compared to Age of Zombies (Half Brick), i.e.

    Any game with that ugly health/cash/supercash bar at the top of the screen is suspect immediately. It would be less unfortunate if the quality of GL games hadn't been improving.
    I'd play this game but I won't. Sell me a game or don't.
