I've told you this before, but I remain ever more convinced of this fact, the zombie apocalypse (or zombiepocalypse if you will) is coming. I don't know when it's going to start, but I do know that television shows and videogames have me totally and completely ready for it. I have learned at least a half-dozen rules to fend off zombies and will feel absolutely no guilt about kicking out of my panic room anyone who may have gotten bitten.
On a fairly regular basis, in order to keep up with my zombie-wasting skills, I search out (or have delivered to me) a new zombie game or television show. These items are highly useful in terms of learning about the different types of zombies that I will face when the undead begin to walk the Earth once more, and the best ways for eliminating them. I promise you, if you want to survive the end of the world, you're going to need to learn all you can about our zombie enemies.
I'm not entirely sure that the methods by which one eliminates the undead in ZombieSmash! on the iPhone will truly help me once day of judgment arrives, but it does keep me thinking about our future nemeses, and that is important. If we are to remain alive in the post-apocalyptic world, we need to consider how to do that in the pre-apocalyptic one – zombies must remain a concern at all times.
ZombieSmash!, published and developed by Gamedoctors, currently sports two different campaigns (the second, "Camp Nowhere" was recently added and is a free update), both of which essentially function in the same way – zombies appear, and using a combination of finger-flicking and weapons, you eliminate them. It is both a clever and a frustrating title. The campaigns take place over the course of a calendar month, with each level representing a different day. Your mission, in tower defense-style, is to eliminate the oncoming zombie horde, with new levels introducing new weapons and/or zombies to constantly tweak gameplay.
