Zombieville USA 2

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2011-10-27 :: Category: Game

$0.99


Zombieville USA 2 and its predecessor are both light, cartoonish zombie sidescrollers. The game leaves room for creativity when it comes to devising strategies to take out the zombie horde or picking your weapons loadout. The mechanics and design are deep enough to keep your coming back for more, too. Just like a, er, zombie.

DEAD TRIGGER 2: Zombie Games

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2013-10-23 :: Category: Game

FREE!


Dead Trigger 2 is a classic zombie-themed FPS with surprisingly well developed touch controls. The game is broken down into different missions with a variety of objectives, but the main goal here is to take out as many zombies as possible in a blaze of glory. If you love the combat in Dead Rising, odds are good that you'll like this little number too.

Organ Trail: Director's Cut

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2012-08-09 :: Category: Game

$2.99


If you couldn't tell by the name, this game is essentially Oregon Trail but rather than a team of oxen you're driving a station wagon and there are zombies wandering the trail eager to eat your brains. Gameplay is classic Oregon Trail, but Organ Trail adds its own modern touch and plenty of dark humor to create something really special.

Age of Zombies™

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2010-10-28 :: Category: Game

$0.99


Age of Zombies casts you as Barry Steakfries, a time travelling hero who passes through the ages killing zombies. From the prehistoric age to modern times, everything has somehow caught the zombie plague and it's your job to fix it with a wide range of weapons, from the classic rifle to the more intense bazooka. It controls like a dream and the game is well-designed. If you need a goofy mobile zombie shooter, this should be your top pick.

Zombie games are always a good time and there is a wide array to choose from on mobile platforms alone. We're sure that the games listed here are sure to tickle your fancy if you're looking for something a little silly or over the top.
