Yes, that’s the real title of an actual game. A game about a sheriff named Django and his war with the undead hordes as he attempts to drive them out of the town of Dead End for good. With the aid of bullets, mostly.
Django West vs. the Barefoot Zombie Gang touts itself as a hilarious old west zombie shooter. It’s got 21 levels, 12 “hilarious” weapons to mess around with, a “groovy” soundtrack and plenty of gore. I mean, it’s a zombie game, after all. One in which players will no doubt be blasting away quite a few zombies (6 different kinds, to be exact).
If nothing else, it’s apparent from the trailer below that Django West vs. the Barefoot Zombie Gang has a boxing glove gun. A boxing glove gun. I can bop zombies in the face with an extend-o-fist and make their noggins explode. How wacky-awesome is that?
Django and his kooky zombie-fighting gear can be found as a Universal app in the App Store right now for $0.99.
Halloween is coming! You know what that means, right? Candy! Trick or treating! iOS apps about ghosts and zombies! In Zombies Lick My Screen, it’s (understandably) zombies that take center stage.
It’s a light hearted app in which users load up a photo and one of four zombies lick away at whatever is displayed. Users can then send a zombie Lick-O-Gram to anyone they want via email, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. From within the app, the user can take a photo, they can import an image or use one of 30 included photos, offering plenty of variety.
Besides the four different zombies, Zombies Lick My Screen also offers three cleaning modes – Lick, Clean and Reveal – to provide different effects.
Two versions of Zombies Lick My Screen are available. Zombies Lick My Screen Lite is free and comes with one zombie and one cleaning mode while the full version priced at $0.99 comes with the full complement of effects and zombies.

Get those boards ready! Find a clean mop head! Load that shotgun! Chuck is back to protect and cleanse Niceville once more.
Taking it’s cues from the original Zombie Wonderland, Zombie Wonderland 2: Outta Time! puts players back into the over-worked and under-appreciated shoes of the town’s most renowned zombie-slayer/janitor. There haven’t been that many specifics given out as of yet, but it appears as though Chuck’s continued adventures in “Why the Heck Would Anyone Choose to Live Here, USA” will be a whole ‘lotta “more.” More clients, such as the viking, Jorund. More weapons, including the Wasp Grenade. More enemies like the Zombie Knight. And more time periods in which to mop up the living dead mess, then mop up the other living dead mess.
However, the biggest change (aside from being downright bigger in the first place) is that Zombie Wonderland 2 will follow a free-to-play model, with in-app purchases. Again, no other specifics have been given but I’m assuming that means paying real cash for either more in-game cash to buy upgrades, paying real cash up front for said upgrades/levels, or a combination of the two. Of course, within a few weeks there won’t be any more questions because the game should be out by then, but why not take a gander at the new trailer and gallery of concept art to whet that whistle?
What do you get when you mix Farmville, Google Maps, Yelp, and zombies? Fleck Touch.
Fleck Touch is a massively-multiplayer game that takes place on Google Maps. It’s possible to plant plants, trees, shrubs, and more on plots of land that actually exist. Players can dig up zombies from tombstones and fight them; especially if they are encroaching on the players real-life address! It’s even possible to buy restaurants that actually exist (I’m told that they must be reviewed on Yelp to show up). Friends can go on cooperative quests and zombie-blasting outings. And everyone who plays on Fleck Touch plays on the same, real-world Google map!
Fleck Touch provides quests for those who need some direction. Starting quests like building a house and dancing with another player are available. And more complex quests like killing certain amounts of zombies start popping up after getting used to the game.
Like all free games of this sort, the moneymaker is buying in-game currency. There are coins, which are relatively easy to get by farming and killing zombies. And there are gems, which are a bit harder to get (and cost much more) that are used to buy the coolest stuff (of course!). The currency can be used to buy more plants, decorations and power-ups. Some power-ups include Red Bolt which gives more stamina (not wings!), Ca$hUP (which looks like a bottle of ketchup) increases how many coins are gained, 24 hour Bolt Shots double stamina for 24 hours, and other humorous references.
Fleck Touch is available for free on the iPad and is playable in a browser. While Fleck has officially been launched, the developers are still looking at the game as a work in progress with more to come.
“…even though this is the culmination of a year+ of work with a pretty sizable group of people (for a mobile game – this is still smaller than even the smallest team I’ve worked with on a console game by a significant margin), it’s also not really the end of development – it’s only the beginning. We’ve got a ton more work to do,” written on the Self Aware website.
Today Gamedoctors announced that it is developing an update for its popular ZombieSmash! and ZombieSmash! HD apps. The title of the update is Camp Nowhere, and it will be available on the App Store this April.
Camp Nowhere doubles the content of the original game. The update includes a second full-length campaign mode with 30 new days to survive. Furthermore, the studio has added a number of new zombie types, including dynamite-strapped zombies that explode, strong zombies and a towering boss to defeat.
The update also features new visual effects, such as fireworks that launch zombies into the air and head inflation effects that balloon zombie heads until they explode. The developer has also implemented parallax scrolling effects, which add depth to the game’s graphics.
Camp Nowhere also brings Twitter connectivity to the experience, allowing you to “share your best smashes with the world,” according to the developer.
“Although Camp Nowhere is technically an update to ZombieSmash!, calling it one doesn’t really capture the scale of the new content… we prefer to think of it as a completely free sequel which we’ve put months of work into, ” said Dr. Matthias Höchsmann, co-founder of Gamedoctors. “Our fans have been incredibly supportive over the past year, and this is our way of saying ‘thank you.’ Can’t wait to see what you all think of the new campaign!”
The original ZombieSmash! debuted on the iTunes App Store last year to much acclaim. We reviewed it and gave it 4 out of 5 stars. The goal of the game is to defend your house from an onslaught of the walking dead by flicking zombies and strategically using special weapons, such as pistols, landmines and wrecking balls to take out zombies. The game features what its developer calls a “splatter engine,” so as you maim zombies you’ll see their limbs and blood fly into the air. Despite the gore, the cartoon visuals keep things lighthearted – well as lighthearted as things can be when there are guts everywhere.
Look for Camp Nowhere on the App Store this April, and check out a collection of screenshots from the update below.
People may seem like they’re hard to understand, but really, they aren’t that complex. All people love 2 things. They love zombies – just look at the popularity of Left 4 Dead selling 3 million copies, and zombie TV series The Walking Dead being one of the biggest series on cable in 2010. What else do people love? Why, they love camera apps on their iPhone. 6 of the top 50 apps are apps that let you add effects to photos and videos you take. Someone at MotionPortrait clearly thought that there was a market here to combine the two, and thus was born ZombieBooth.
ZombieBooth isn’t just an app that applies a cheap video effect over your face and makes you look like you’re undead. No, ZombieBooth shoots a little higher – you either take a picture with your camera or import a picture from your photo library, indicate where your eyes and mouth are, let the photo process, and then you get a 3D model of your face (or whomever you’re taking a picture of), looking like you’re in the middle of a serious zombie affliction. You can move around your new zombie face, shuffle between different zombie effects, save a picture to your Camera Roll, or share it via email, Facebook, or Twitter. Of course, half the fun of the app comes from seeing your zombie face in action and hearing the grunts and growls of your new zombified form, thrills that stills can’t share. This is why ZombieBooth features the ability to make a video of your zombie form that can be saved to your Camera Roll.
There’s clearly more going on in this app than in your average photo manipulation app, especially considering the 3D rendering the app presents, which is part of why the app has been a big hit among Macworld 2011 attendees, where MotionPortrait was showing off this and other photo manipulation apps. People apparently do love zombies and iPhone photo manipulation. And the amazing thing is that some people probably saw this app on the show floor, and then went and downloaded it right there after they saw it, the joy of selling via digital distribution. This is of course, assuming that AT&T and/or wifi service was prevalent on the show floor, which is often an issue at conventions. Still, we have this incredible technology in the palms of our hands, with the ability to acquire it from anywhere, and we can use it to do silly things like make ourselves look like zombies anywhere we want, and send it to anyone we want. It’s silly, but it’s incredible.
