SANTA MONICA, Calif. - July 2, 2014 - After taking the mobile world by storm, Age of Zombies, the tongue-in-cheek (or should I say brain-in-cheek?) top-down shooter from Halfbrick, is now available on OUYA for free. For the first time, players can take on the shambling hordes of putrescent dead on the big screen, with true twin stick console controls. Check out the game trailer to get a glimpse of the entrail-rending, viscera-smashing mayhem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnVX1NXVPCQ.
Players will step into the sleeveless suit of failed salesman turned time-traveling badass Barry Steakfries, and will journey through both time and space to take down the blighted army of Professor Brains. Face off against cadaverous cowboys and gangrenous gangsters, noxious ninjas and moldering mummies, and prevent the sinister Brains from reducing the human race to so much groaning, putrefied flesh.
Age of Zombies features both Survival and Arcade Modes, letting players share the game’s fast-paced trigger-happy gameplay with friends for double the zombie-slaying action. The OUYA launch marks the first time this title will be available for set-top consoles.
