Zombies have always been a popular subject within media, and can be found extensively in books, film, and video games. The premise is almost always the same: some kind of infection or virus causes the dead to rise from their graves and seek the flesh of the living.
Zombie-themed games have been around for a long time, and there are plenty of different kinds to choose from on the various mobile app stores available.
Dead Trigger 2
The successor to the extremely popular Dead Trigger, Dead Trigger 2 has improved upon the originals’ gameplay in just about every way imaginable. It’s a multiplayer game with millions of players from across the world, with an estimated 50 million accounts active right now.
The game is set in several different regions, with over 600 gaming scenarios and 33 environments. Completing missions alongside other players with unlock money and other prizes that can then be used for upgrades and other exciting features.
Samurai vs. Zombie Defence
This is a mobile game that has available for many years, and it’s proven to be a fantastic time killer with plenty of replayability. Here, the player takes on the role of a brave samurai as they have to try and figure out how to keep their village safe from a horde of bloodthirsty zombies.
The gameplay is ever-changing as the player tries new strategies and forms of defence; or they can make friends with warriors, farmers, archers, and others to aid them in their fight against the zombies.
Plants vs. Zombies
Almost everyone has heard of Plants vs. Zombies at one point or another. This is a light-hearted game where the player has to try and stop a horde of the undead from getting to their home. They do this by utilising the plants in their garden, each of which has its own strengths, weaknesses, and forms of attack and defence.
The game gets more and more difficult as the player progresses, but they will also unlock new plants and other defences as things become harder. It’s a truly addictive game with lots of comedy and perfect for those that love to game on a more casual level, or rather just jump into a round of AFL premiership betting.
Into The Dead
One of the best looking Android games around, Into The Dead has become something of a fan favourite among zombie lovers. It’s a tough game that sees players using all manner of weapons to defend themselves against the rising zombie tide.
It’s possible to unlock new weapons and different gadgets to help fight the zombie horde and stay alive as long as possible. There are plenty of missions to choose from, as well as lots of side-missions to keep players entertained. It’s possible to play the game solo or have friends join in on the fun for group-based events and gameplay.
