Zombies are cool. That’s why there are so many games centered around them. Also popular are social games which is precisely why The Playforge’s Zombie Farm has been such a success with over 20 million downloads since its release last year.
The Playforge clearly aren’t keen to sit back, though, and have released a new zombie social gaming title: Zombie Life. This time round, players take the role of a young zombie as they stumble their way through life in the real world. Comedic opportunities are abound thanks to the zombies needing to work in places like Burger Kong or the local grocery store, while staying consistently fresh and safely disguised. It’s certainly an original idea for a freemium based social game and just in time for Halloween.
Check out the gameplay trailer below. Zombie Life manages to make zombies look pretty darn loveable in their quest for normality.
Zombie Life is available now for free with in-app purchases available.
In an industry obsessed with zombies and social farming, what do people need? A combination of the two, duh! Which is exactly why iPad owners should be rather excited by the announcement that freemium hit Zombie Farm is now an universal app.
Previously downloaded by 15 million users, Zombie Farm is clearly really rather addictive. And why not? Where else can you farm and harvest your own zombie farm after all? The entire experience is cutesy yet zany. Following the typical social gaming experience, Zombie Farm is a freely available app with a whole bundle of different in-app purchases available if players choose to invest their money into the title.
The release of the universal app ensures that iPad owners can experience Zombie Farm at a high resolution covering the iPad’s 1024×768 display. Also the user interface has been improved specially for iPad owners making it much easier to navigate. There’s also much more control over alerts such as being informed of harvest or invasion poblems, thus giving players more of a heads up of an issue.
As well as that, Zombie Farm’s latest update brings with it the Brainiac pack offering bundles of brains at a great discount rate, and an exclusive pet brain that can’t be found anywhere else. There’s also a new profile bar that allows players to switch between accounts easily, always handy.
Finally, there’s been a plethora of bug fixes to ensure that players no longer lose any data, a problem for a minority of users in the past.
Intriguingly, the update notes also state that developers, The Playforge, are promising the ability to play alongside friends with new social features coming soon. It looks like the future could be very bright for Zombie Farm fans indeed!
