10 word description: Auto-run ‘n’ gunner in a hotel full of (famous) zombies.
10 word review: Addictive, funny and almost fresh. Tons of one-more-go here.
You will like this if you enjoy: The basic premise of an auto-runner wrapped around a retro arcade style platform shoot-em-up.
The good news: The graphics are very good – plenty of variety in the enemies, some easily identifiable celebrity zombies and excellent weapon effects. Sound, also, is very good. Gameplay, though repetitive by design, draws you in and really keeps you hooked. Upgrades aren’t ridiculously overpriced. Controls are flawless for this type of game.
The bad news: Yes, there are IAPs. I doubt this comes as a surprise to anyone.
Arcadelife verdict: This is really a lot of fun. If you think you’ve had enough of auto-runners, this one is different enough to make it worth trying. Instead of running along an endless scrolling path, you run back and forth, climbing ladders and taking shortcuts to ascend as far as possible within the zombie-filled hotel. Weapons, health boosts and ascension assisting power-ups occur on almost every floor and the zombie slaughtering action is fast-paced and completely over the top. All in all, this is a 99% pure video game experience, marred slightly by the adverts and IAPs. Although, I have to be fair, the game is initially free and you can permanently remove the adverts and nagging with a single tier one (69p) IAP.
