Today’s featured new app is reminiscent of the scene in Shaun of the Dead, where Shaun and Ed cart out a random box of junk to toss at the zombies in their backyard. Wrenches, toilet paper rolls, or mugs– they’re your ammo in Zombie Flick.
In Zombie Flick, you stand behind the police barricades that are on all four sides of you. Like in Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies, you can repair these barricades anytime you like. As you turn, you can target zombies by placing your finger on their heads and flicking in any direction.
You’ll then hurl whatever you happen to have in your hands, taking them down with a headshot or knocking them to the ground. If you swipe at an angle, you can skip your shots like a stone on water, nailing multiple zombies.
Like in The Incident, much of the fun comes from seeing what random junk is going to go flying next. Watermelons, bowler hats, and cans of baked beans are not your typical anti-zombie weapons. Also, to go with the movie theme, pausing the game brings you to a cheesy Intermission screen, with goofy organ music.
Zombie Flick looks like a different take on the overplayed zombie shooter genre, but we’d still like more modes than just the two that are available. Still, we think it’s sharp-looking and well made, even if it can get a little repetitive.
