SCHLOß HOLTE-STUKENBROCK, Germany - Dec. 13, 2010
Gamedoctors, the independent development studio behind ZombieSmash!– the original“Survival Comedy” game for the iPhone– today announced the upcoming arrival of ZombieSmash! HD for the iPad. Rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of the iPad’s screen and horsepower, ZSHD will ensure preparedness for the impending zombie apocalypse among an even wider range of iOS device owners. ZSHD will be available on the App Store on December 16, 2010, for an introductory price of $2.99.
ZombieSmash! HD takes the physics-based castle defense gameplay from the #1 hit iPhone classic– and blows it up.
• Multi-touch zombie death: Instead of swiping at zombies one at a time with your thumbs like in the original ZombieSmash!, ZSHD lets survivors swipe whole crowds of zombies at a time - much more efficient! And they’ll have to, as they’ll be tasked with fending off even bigger hordes of walking corpses!
• All-new HD graphics: High-resolution art and graphics to help you view your latest zombie conquest(s) in bloody, SplatterEngine-powered detail.
• 25 zombie-butt-kicking weapons, specials and upgrades: All the awesome weapons and specials from the original ZS, including crazy fan favorites like landmines, sniper rifles and asteroids. Plus, pump up your defenses with an assortment of upgrades.
• Game Center integration: Achievements, leaderboards and player profiles powered through Apple’s Game Center.
• Full campaign and bonus levels: The first full campaign from the original ZS has been revamped for iPad gameplay, with bonus content such as bullet time, zero-gravity shooting, oversized (or tiny!) zombies, and more!
• Enhanced Sandbox Mode: Queue up 64 zombies of your choice and rain down fiery, rocky, bullet-y, meteor-y, and otherwise awesome-y death on them with your choice of specials.
“With every addition to the ZombieSmash! franchise, we aim to better equip gamers against the upcoming zombie apocalypse,” said Dr. Matthias Höchsmann, co-founder of Gamedoctors.“And while it’s great to get some help from AMC’s‘The Walking Dead,’ nothing can truly prepare you to fend off waves upon waves of zombies like ZombieSmash! HD. It’s the most realistic defend-your-country-farmhouse-against-cartoon-zombies simulator available on the market today!”
