    Limbic lost all the original artwork for Zombie Gunship due to an incident with a soft-serve ice cream machine, mail order night vision goggles, and Mike the intern. Most of the engineering team is outside crying in a fetal position while rocking back and forth. Zombie Gunship Arcade is basically the best we could do to get things back up and running. We probably should have known that floppy disk backups weren’t the way to go...

    So get out your tokens and get ready for some classic style arcade fun. And here’s your warning; this game is hard, just like all the old ones used to be.

    Retro Graphics!
    ... because they're easier to make, and we can't find our copy of Photoshop so we had to use MS Paint.

    Retro Sounds!
    ... because we found them lying around somewhere and we can't find our sound software either!

    Retro Gameplay!
    ... because do you know how hard it is to hire a game designer on Craigslist?!

    Featuring:

    - One gun! Remember how the original game had three? Well... this one doesn't.
    - Side view! What more do you need, fly up, fly down, shoot zombies, don’t crash.
    - Cool buildings and stuff! Yeah!

    Release Date: This Thursday, May 1st.

    I snagged ANKR49X646KF!

    So glad this is a real thing :D

    Edit: Alright so I played his a bit, and it's awesome! It's a pretty sweet flap-like if you ask me ;)

    It's a little tough to get the hang of (even for veteran flappers. Excluding Andy C83) but I just got 104.

    Your score is counted by the number of zombies you've killed (there's a lot) and you insta crash if you kill a human

    Thanks so much! Impressions to come..

    Edit: Cool flap like! There are ads, but I gladly paid to remove them (99 cents). You start out with a small gunship but are given a bigger, "better" one with the ad removal IAP. There are 9 achievements worth a total of 450 pts. and of course, leaderboards. Trying to find a good strategy.. High score is 110 so far. Thank goodness there are so many zombies and so few humans!

    Omg, hard is just the forename.

    Very simple yet top-notch presentation with a beautiful artwork all over.
    And that one-more-time is driven by a catchy pumping soundtrack.
    Absolutely great for what it is.

    Thanks for FNFPPEHMHF6E !

    Edit: here's my dollar for a new soft-ice machine.

    Whoot! Glad you like it! I got a score of 322. One of our beta testers got 700+ :eek: It definitely takes some practice to get a good rhythm going with dodging the humans right before they come.
