Zynga prepares for zombie apocalypse, readies ZombieSmash! on Google Play
The Zombie outbreak has begun to spread…across platforms. Today, Zynga welcomes its first official zombie game with ZombieSmash! on Google Play. Currently available in Canada on Google Play, ZombieSmash! is an action-packed castle defense game where players flick and smash herds of unrelenting zombies until they’re dead.
Well, technically zombies are already dead, but this makes them un-undead. Wait. Wouldn’t that make them alive? Never mind. You get the point.
ZomebieSmash! will be available globally on Google Play this week. The game offers sophisticated ragdoll physics combined with the propriety SplatterEngine™ to create cartoon blood and gore that is both adorable and cathartic — all at the same time (trust us, it’s true). To keep the good fight against zombies interesting, players have access to over 30 upgrades and special weapons including asteroids, wrecking balls, liquid nitrogen and gigantic rolling boulders, which can be used individually or in combination for endless, gory entertainment.
ZombieSmash! will be available in eight languages and features four different game modes, giving zombie hunters the freedom to choose how they would like to dismember the undead.
As the saying that we just made up goes, there is more than one way to skin a zombie.
Game modes include:
- Campaign Mode: Challenges players to survive for over 31 intense days against the mounting zombie threat and another 30 nights in the Camp Nowhere campaign
- Endless Siege Mode: Confronts players with a never-ending zombie assault – hold out as long as possible, racking up an ever-rising body count
- Sandbox Mode: Gives players all the tools to rain destruction down on those stinking, moaning, godless zombies without any of the peril
- Bonus Nights: Smash and destroy zombies in new ways. Unlock this special mode through extended gameplay and by using your braaains!
ZombieSmash! on Google Play will come bundled with live wallpaper and is also optimized for tablet devices. Bringing ZombieSmash! to Google Play is a part of Zynga Mobile’s focus to create social, high-quality and multi-platform games.
In celebration of our first zombie game, we also had some fun with our friends at Google. Check out the cool time-lapsed video below to see the friendly Android get “zombified,” Zynga style. We've also got some great zombie eye candy from the game, too.
