If there's one thing this world needs more of, it's video games with zombies in them. Or not. Anyway, one of the cooler zombie games we recently checked out in a TA Plays is Bignic's very directly-titled Zombies. [$0.99]. It's an isometric dual-stick shooter that sees you trying to survive a zombie apocalypse that breaks out at your corporate job. Zombies. has a great pixel art style reminiscent of Sword & Sworcery [$3.99], and a fantastic chiptune soundtrack. More importantly, though, it features a ton of humor and an over-the-top level of destructible environments, two things that heighten the level of enjoyment greatly.
Last week, Zombies. was updated with Universal iPad support, something fans had been clamoring for since release. Also, the update previous to this one tweaked the transparency of the dual d-pads so they didn't stick out so much, and it also fixed a bunch of bugs, including a nasty one that could prevent you from progressing under certain circumstances.
Today Bignic has revealed yet another new update that's set to go live this week, and it looks like a good one. It'll add an endless survival mode where you battle through wave after wave of undead board members, as well as the ability to pick up objects in the environment and use them as weapons by throwing them, adding another layer of offensive strategy and opportunity for destruction. If you thought the carnage in Zombies. was intense before, check out the endless mode in this trailer for the impending update.
If you're an iPad owner looking for a new zombie fix, or even if you only own an iPhone or iPod touch, definitely check out the new and improved Zombies. for a good time, players in our forums certainly have been. Also be on the lookout for the endless mode and throwable objects update to hit later this week.
