    It looks really interesting, apparently the whole game is auditory.
    Shoot zombies by tapping the side of the screen that you can hear them on.

    I saw this on the newest apps page, but was really confused as to why there was no screenshots of gameplay. Anyway, I think im set with the zombieville game. All auditory doesn't seem like it would interest me.

    That's what i just did. ;)

    I am a person that really likes new ideas in games and i like this one pretty much. The idea itself is not absolutely new, but there are not many games that only (and i mean ONLY) work with an audio component. This one is the first on the iDevice (as far as i know) and in fact i only know of one other game that works that way ('In the Pit' - a XNA Game on Xbox360). So what's interesting about the game? As i said, it mainly uses your auditory skills (combined with reaction and intuition) and completely lacks any visual component. That means there are mainly two target audiences, i guess: Real Hardcoregamers that want to try out any new stuff that they can get their hands on and blind people. If there ever will be a lite version everybody should check this thing out, but until then i guess the public will pretty much ignore this thing. The Sounds are well done (i mean that really is the only thing you could **** up in this kind of game ;)) and after a short while you can work out the 'aiming' pretty well.

    If anybody still is interested in this i can only give the following tip: Get your headphones (obviously works better with those instead of the speakers), turn of the light, close your eyes and begin the hunt... ;)
