Limbic Software’s Zombie Gunship [$.99] is a fascinating change-of-pace game. In it, you pilot an AC-130 and drop hot metal on the undead, similar to how you butcher regular infantry in its iconic aircraft sections in the Modern Warfare games. From an overview level, this is a cool, compact twist on zombie genre which has struggled of late for a creative spark.
When we first praised the game, it was only available for the iPod Touch and iPhone. Now, it is a Universal game courtesy of a new (and free!) update. I went hands-on with the iPad version this morning and came away pretty impressed. The game looks stellar on the bigger screen, and it plays just fine, too.
Provided no-one makes a Zombies Vs. Dinosaurs game in the near-to-mid future, I think we’ll continue to struggle to find new experiences in this genre. I’m glad that Zombie Gunship exists, first of all, but I’m stoked that it’s actually fun, too. Check out the iPad version already!
