When one thinks of zombies, one might not necessarily think of them as proper pets. After all, their desire for brains and tenaciousness in attempts to acquire them makes them difficult to maintain as pets. Brains aren’t easy to acquire, and they don’t care if they eat the brains of the caretaker; they’re zombies, all they want are brains! My Pet Zombie from Riptide Games is out to shatter the hurtful stereotypes about pet zombies that I have just espoused.

My Pet Zombie is a free-to-play app where the player can decorate a zombie of their very own with their choice of hairstyles and clothes. The player must keep the zombie energized, fed, and happy, because a disgruntled, hungry, and unenergized zombie will try to eat brains. The player can play minigames with their zombies to help energize them and earn experience. Zombie Director is a memory game, where the player must repeat back the zombie’s actions through a series of gestures. Zombie Talkback allows the zombie to repeat back whatever the player records. It’s also possible to take a picture with the zombie in it, so the pet zombie can show up in real-world locations.

Players can buy bones through in-app purchases that can go toward items used to feed the zombie, or decorate him or her in new fashions, along with acquiring new scenery for the zombie to inhabit. If the player ignores their zombie, they return to the cold, dirt comfort of their grave, though reviving them…or at least making them rise from their grave and become undead again is easy. I have to imagine being constantly reanimated is a traumatic experience, though, so players of My Pet Zombie shouldn’t let it happen a lot, lest they seek to torture their pet zombie. My Pet Zombie is available as a free universal app from the App Store.
