    Not exactly sure what's going in from the screens. Is it overhead isometric like iDracula or 2d sidescrolling like Zombieville?

    Judging by the first screen it would seem like it'll be more like iDracula then Zombieville. Hopefully more info will be coming soon!

    My understanding is it's a top down shooter. I will contact the team behind it for more information. Anything specific you guys want me to ask?

    Oh cool. Well mainly controls and number of levels is all I can think of right now. Thanks by the way :)

    Ask about controls, how frenetic the game is, is it an arena shooter or go you go through levels, story, and is there coop (those first pictures have 2 player characters in them.

    Oh yeah, what do they think of Zombieville and iDracula. :)

    Sounded kind of intriguing until I saw the perspective. Maybe it will look better in person than the screen shots, but I'm not one for the whole bird's eye view thing.

    Looks good.

    Will probably be buying, unless the screenshots are deceptive.

    If this is like a zombie-fied version of Alien Breed then count me in.

    Reminds me of Left 4 Dead for Xbox 360 and PC. Its got four surivivors and LOTS of zomibes but yeah it also looks like a hybrid of idracula and zombieville

    I have emailed the team behind it these questions...

    1) How do the controls work in iZombie: Death March?

    2) How many levels will there be and do you have a price point?

    3) "how frenetic is the game, is it an arena shooter or go you go through levels or a story?"

    4) What do you guys think of iDracula? Has this been a point of inspiration?

    5) Is multiplayer an option? Co-Operative zombie slaying has become something of a gaming holy grail so a portable game along these lines could kill (pardon the pun).

    Stay tuned :)

    Yeah the hype meter went down a little bit didn't it :confused:

    I still wonder though are you set in one spot and tap to shoot or are you walking around avoiding danger and all that. The light mission how do you shift the light to other areas? Hmmm

    Sounds like they took iDracula and turned it into a lolfest. What do you guys think?

    I personally would have preferred a more elegant/creative shooting control scheme than merely taping on the screen where you want to fire. Specifically, the game should have a left virtual D-pad to move, a right virtual D-pad to aim, and tapping on the back on the device to fire (cf Silent Hill). This accordingly would require few zombies, but make the game more interesting to play. The reload mechanism is fine.
