Halfbrick Studios has six big updates coming this month for Age of Zombies, so they have officially declared it Zombie Month! And the first of these updates is live now.

This update adds adding local multiplayer so two zombie hunters can join forces as Barry Steakfries and Abraham Lincoln to blow away the undead menace. Players can share touch controls on the same device or use any supported game controller such as the Logitech PowerShell, Razer Kazuyo, SteelSeries Stratus.

During Zombie Month, Halfbrick Studios will also offer global community challenges, daily prize giveaways and code drops, and behind-the-scenes interviews on their website.

With 5 more updates coming our way, Zombie Month is going to be jam packed with undead awesomeness. You can download Age of Zombies for $0.99 on the App Store.

Halfbrick makes some pretty great games. Games like Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. In fact, I’m betting there’s a pretty good chance you’ve already played many (if not all) of their games. But if you haven’t, now is the best possible time to fix that.

At the moment, just about every single game in Halfbrick’s library is on sale for free. This includes the aforementioned Fruit Ninja, Fruit Ninja HD, Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots, Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots HD, Fish Out of Water!, Colossatron: Massive World Threat, Age of Zombies, and Monster Dash.

Whew!

So if any or even all of those titles sound interesting, get yourself to the App Store and start downloading!

Barry Steakfries, Halfbrick’s erstwhile and versatile wisecracking protagonist, is back in a special re-release of his debut game to take advantage of new iOS features. Age of Zombies Anniversary is especially designed for Retina Display and iPad devices. While the game was universal before, and remains on the App Store as the preferred version for earlier generation devices, the Anniversary Edition’s artwork has been redone for high-resolution screens. This version of the game also supports iCloud for game save and stats syncing across devices. Most importantly, the game has a new Wild West level, which seems awfully overdue for a game involving time traveling and killing zombies in different eras of history. These new levels take place after the regular end of the game, and come with a new survival mode to boot. Most importantly, there’s now a zombie t-rex wearing a party hat. This re-release, for 3rd generation and later devices, is now available at a sale price of $0.99.

If you’ve played Halfbrick’s Monster Dash, you will be aware of the game’s wisecracking protagonist, Barry Steakfries. What you may not be aware of is that Monster Dash is not the character’s debut – he first appeared in a PSN Minis game called Age of Zombies, that was a top-down shooter that involved time traveling and snarky humor. Why am I telling you this? Because iOS gamers will get to experience this game for themselves this October.

Age of Zombies is a dual-stick shooter (although coming from the PSP, this is the first time it will actually be controlled with dual sticks), that has you killing zombies across various time periods, from the age of dinosaurs to samurai Japan, all the way to the future and all with zombies. The game is level-based, but there is a survival mode for each time period that you can play in once you beat each age’s boss. Assuming it is unchanged from the PSN Mini, you can expect plenty of hilarious (and occasionally profane) dialogue to set up the game’s ridiculous story, and plenty of humorous Barry Steakfries one-liners, which are actually spoken by the character, instead of being just lines of text as in Monster Dash.

What is most interesting about Age of Zombies for iOS is that it is Halfbrick’s first universal app, with graphics in high-resolution for the iPad. While it is unknown if it will also support Retina Display graphics, the game’s interface and menus have been redesigned for the iOS touchscreens. As well, the game now features global leaderboards, a feature not present in the PSN version. With a nebulous release date of ‘October,’ fans of Monster Dash’s protagonist and fans of twin-stick shooters will likely want to keep an eye out for Age of Zombies for iOS.
