Wednesday 20th April 2011: Digital publisher Kavcom has announced an exclusive licensing deal with doublesix games for Burn Zombie Burn! Kavcom will bring iOS App Store versions of the PlayStation 3 hit to Apple Mac in May and then iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch in Q2 2011.
Burn Zombie Burn! is an action-packed arcade shooter where you take on the role of Bruce, a character who has to fight off a never-ending horde of undead attackers with increasingly bizarre weaponry. To score high, you will have to set fire to as many zombies as possible– the more zombies on fire, the bigger your multiplier– but be careful, burning zombies are faster and much more dangerous.
Burn Zombie Burn! was awarded 88% by GameZone who said:“what a zombie-killer game should be...offering all the creativity, hilarity, and destruction any gamer could ask for and then some!” and was also branded“great” by IGN and given a stellar 83% score.“A good time all round,” said 1UP who also scored the game with a whopping 83%. Burn Zombie Burn! for iOS is being developed by original creators doublesix games in conjunction with Kavcom and TickTock Games.
