The popular fitness app with a difference, Zombies, Run!, has received an update to version 2.1. Now, users of the app can enjoy improved accessibility, a brand new "top-down" base builder, and first-time runners can take advantage of an introductory tutorial upon loading the application. In the app, users perform their daily exercise against the audio backdrop of a zombie apocalypse. Upon launching the app and connecting a pair of headphones, iPhone and iPod touch owners are presented with a series of missions that tie in with the fictional storyline of Zombies, Run!. After selecting and launching a specific mission, users then embark upon their own run, which the application integrates within the drama of its zombie invasion. Zombies, Run! launched following a successful Kickstarter campaign, and we've been fans of the application for a while now. However, in version 2.1, the app - which received a major content update earlier this month - has been improved further. As outlined in Zombies, Run!'s release notes, changes made in the recent update include:
Zombies, Run! 2.1 is available to download in the App Store now, and is optimized for the iPhone and iPod touch. If you don't already own the application, it can be purchased for $3.99. For more information, check out the Zombies, Run! 2 launch trailer, which we've embedded below along with a selection of screenshots from the application. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlRgBvYFxTo&feature=player_embedded
- Improved accessibility across the entire game.
- New fully accessible "top-down" base builder mode.
- A tutorial is displayed for first-time users
- If you played missions in version 1 of the app, we have now restored your progress on the Season 1 mission screen.
