Zombie BBQ ($0.99) by KONGZHONG CORPORATION is a challenging and stressful action game that uses finger control to help your character dodge zombies.
Upon launching Zombie BBQ, you find yourself in the center of a cold dark room surrounded by three lit flames.
Your character is a young blonde female that’s scared, and ready to run (based on the petrified look on her face).
The bloody zombies are hungry, and you’re on the menu. As they launch themselves at you, your objective is to dodge the zombies, leading them to the light … the one that fries them.
The game offers a tutorial, which is completely unnecessary. The only movement you need to execute in this simple game is dragging your finger around the screen.
By using finger control, you’ll want to outsmart the zombies by leading them to the burning flames. As they attack, you’re just a finger swipe away from surviving to meet the next one.
A good offense is defense, so use the flames to your advantage. Success is dependent upon just how quickly you can react and swipe your finger to get out of the way.
Of course, that’s only half the battle. The only way to kill the zombies is by leading them into the fire.
You start with three lives, represented by hearts. Each time a zombie makes contact, you lose a life. Each zombie is worth 30 points, but the more zombies you burn, the higher multiplier you receive. Your goal is to survive and score as high as you can. There aren’t any built-in achievements or power-ups included in the game.
The further you get, the more zombies you’ll face and the less flames you’ll have to hide behind.
If you’re looking for a great zombie game, you’ll get more substance from Plants vs. Zombies or ZombieSmash.
The game is challenging and stressful, but ultimately lacks in both variety and depth. It was fun the first time, but doesn’t have that “it” factor to make me want to come back for more.
