United Kingdom and Austria– July 20, 2009– Casual iPhone App publisher Clickgamer.com and Austrian gaming company studio radiolaris today announced the availability of Zombies vs. Sheep on the Apple App Store.
Zombies vs. Sheep is a frenetic tap-to-shoot game set in a mexican-themed shooting gallery. Your mission: Protect the sheep from incoming waves of zombies. As the evening gets darker you will face more and stronger enemies. You are the last hope of the sheep. The gameplay is simple, you just have to shoot the zombies while moving your sheep to collect coins and avoid falling bats and flaming skulls! To move your ship simply tilt the phone, shoot by tapping the enemies and reload by quickly flicking the phone in any direction.
The game is played in survival mode and features 10 levels of increasing difficulty. You will face numerous different enemies and three epic boss fights. And, you can upgrade your sheep too! Is your sheep is too slow? Did you run out of bullets? Is your sheep nearly dead? Collect some coins and go to the shop to buy upgrades.
Jennifer Willis of Clickgamer.com says,“studio radiolaris’ Zombies versus Sheep is an addictive 2D game with a novel concept; shoot the zombies down and protect the sheep. Players can tap to shoot and shake to reset, making the entire gaming experience straight forward and fun from start to end.”
“Zombies vs Sheep is purely about fun. We wanted it to be as intense and rewarding as possible– with a decidedly comic note.” says Fares Kayali, producer of the game.“You stand against an army of poisonous spiders, aggressive bats and inflammable zombies. Good thing there’s dynamite.” adds Martin Pichlmair, Games Designer.
“The importance of protecting the sheep from invading armies of walking, crawling and flying undead is vastly underestimated by the current generation of political leaders.” jokes Mario Dancso, the guitarist who provided the game’s mariachi-style soundtrack.
“iPhone games are getting smaller and going social. Zombies vs. Sheep with OpenFeint is a perfect example of hilarity with your friends.” comments Jason Citron of Aurora Feint Inc. on the social gaming features of Zombies vs. Sheep.
