SAN FRANCISCO - April 23, 2010
Frozen Giant, an independent iPhone game development studio today announced the launch of Tucker Ray In: Rednecks vs. Zombies, available for $1.99 in the App Store. An action-packed romp through the namesake character’s undead-infested trailer park, this comical dual-stick shooter follows loveable redneck Tucker Ray as he tries his dardnest to rescue his sweetheart Bobby Sue from the undead horde (armed only with a shotgun…and unlimited ammo…and occasionally an exploding squirrel launcher).
The action-packed celebration of redneck resilience features three huge levels, five inspired zombies, and a few zombie-ass-kickin’ weapons to aid Tucker in his quest. Along the way, our hillbilly hero will pick up Firepower Beer bottlecaps, trucker hats and other power-ups. And he’s gonna need them, because if he makes it through the trailer park and farmland infestation, he’ll find himself up against a boss fight unlike anything else on the iPhone - Undead Betty: a foul-lookin’, cigarette-smokin’, redneck-killin’ beast of a dead lady.
“Zombies love brains– that’s a universal fact. So it’s a bit ironic that these zombies have risen in a place where, frankly, there aren’t a lot of brains to be found,” said Joseph Walters, co-founder of Frozen Giant and lead developer of Tucker Ray In: Rednecks vs. Zombies.“But what Tucker Ray may lack in zombie-sustaining bbbrrraaaiiinnnsss, he makes up for in heart– and buckshot.”
