Bunny the Zombie Slayer Hops to the App Store

VANCOUVER—26 th April 2011 - Bunny the Zombie Slayer, the first iOS title from Canadian developer Hothead Games, is now available on the App Store for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

In the game, players control a heroic but slightly unstable bunny that must protect children from relentless waves of Zombie Hordes. These once-deceased characters (nurses, businessmen, cheerleaders, chefs and more) will stop at nothing to reach the innocent children and  spoil their fun. In response, Bunny unleashes his projectile weapons of fury to dismember and decapitate the undead, aiming at their heads for a clean knock out!

“At Hothead, we strive to produce the most innovative, fun games possible with a unique twist and I’m happy to say Bunny the Zombie Slayer follows that mold”, said Hothead Producer Joel DeYoung.

“Like most heroes, we felt that this Bunny had attitude and a fearless streak and we are happy to give gamers of all ages a fun way to interact with a very brave rabbit.”

Bunny the Zombie Slayer is available to download now for $0.99/£0.59 from http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bunny-the-zombie-slayer/id429323581?mt=8
