The update ushers in the game’s second season, hence the game’s official title, Age of Zombies: Season 2.
Age of Zombies: Season 2 comes as the finale to Halfbrick’s so-called Zombie Month. At the same time, it introduces a new era in Age of Zombies gaming.
Most notably, it brings a major graphical overhaul, doing away with the game’s retro look with a new 3-D style seemingly inspired by Minecraft. But as they’ve voiced out in the game’s App Store reviews, many players haven’t warmed up to the change, with one calling it “a step in the wrong direction.”
In its defense, Halfbrick says that the new visual style allows for “much smoother movements, meatier action and graphical flexibility.” The developer adds, “Part of the Age of Zombies goal moving forward is to experiment with all aspects of the game and keep the content coming, and this upgrade to 3-D will help the team achieve exactly that.”

Age of Zombies: Season 2 is set to soon feature new content based on “Ghostbusters,” which is currently featured in Fruit Ninja, and other tie-ups.
