It is a truth universally acknowledged that iPhone users must be in search of zombie games. This game looks like a fun zombie killing side scroller with a little Regency era eye candy. I haven’t played it yet, but it’s available in the App store for $2.99.
The game play is simple: Add the numbers on the board to get the sum displayed at the bottom of the screen as the timer counts down. When the board is clear, you’re onto the next level and the numbers you need to add to get higher.
Why it turns you into a zombie is simple and ingenious: You brainlessly keep playing, clawing at your iPhone screen, although you know that really, there’s nothing special about this game. And you keep playing because you know you can do better. “C’mon,” you say to yourself, “anyone could add to 42.”
