TORONTO, ON - Dec. 1, 2011
Fuse Powered Inc. (Fuse), publisher of top-selling iOS games, in partnership with leading UK development studio Rebellion®, today announced the release of Judge Dredd vs. Zombies for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. In Judge Dredd vs. Zombies, players are the Law, taking on the role of one of the world’s most famous comic book heroes as Judge Dredd declares a (second) death sentence on invading zombies. Using simple, “single-stick” controls, players shoot up zombies across thirty levels of over-the-top undead mayhem, unlocking weapon and equipment upgrades as justice is served. Judge Dredd vs. Zombies is available now on the App Store for $.99.
“When we met with Rebellion to discuss bringing their Judge Dredd brand to iOS, we saw right away that Judge Dredd vs. Zombies was a winning formula,” said Jon Walsh, CEO at Fuse Powered. “In one corner, you have an iconic character from one of the most-loved comic book series of all time, and in the other corner – an endless horde of zombies. Rebellion is a proven world-class independent console developer and we’re thrilled to bring The Law to the iTunes® App Store.”
Judge Dredd is THE Law in Mega-City One and he is none too pleased when zombies invade. Help him punish these unlawful undead invaders with the “Lawgiver pistol” and a devastating arsenal of powerful weapons. Increase your “Law Meter” by slaughtering the zombie horde and earn credits to unlock new guns and upgrades.
"From our first meeting with Fuse we realized that there was strong potential for a great partnership. Their analytics, marketing tools and expertise are invaluable assets for iOS developers." said Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion. “It’s a great cultural fit. We get to do what we do best - make great games - and Fuse does what they do best - maximize each game’s chance of success.”

• Thirty levels packed full of zombies to slay, set across three different episodes
