Thursday 2nd June 2011: Digital publisher Kavcom has announced that doublesix games’ action-packed undead-shooter Burn Zombie Burn! is out now on the Apple Mac App Store. Burn Zombie Burn! for Apple Mac features extensive control options to play the game in addition to mouse and keyboard, including PlayStation 3 DualShock wireless controller, Xbox 360 wired controller, iShock gamepad and BZB Gamepad - an iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad free-to-download gamepad app.
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 including chainsaws, baseball bats and mega machine guns. 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.
