Have you ever Tried the mobile game, Infectonator? Infectonator by Toge Productions, is a wonderful port of the pc flash game that is all about raising an army of zombies to try and infect the entire world!
With saturation of zombie games, it is quite a nice change of pace to play a zombie game where you Play as the zombies! How often do you get to play a game that allows you to slowly devour the world? And it’s beautifully executed as well, with lovely old school, arcade graphics and music that’s 8-bit inspired. Also, having played the flash version, the new touch screen controls are very smooth, and fluid, easy to use compared to a mouse and keyboard.
Gameplay itself is very simple. Your goal is to simply devour the world, one major city at a time. Each level, city if you will, you are given several tools to help you infect or kill everyone in that current level. Your basic tool is a virus infection, where upon touching a person or a group of people they become zombies. At this point the game plays out itself, where your new zombies will chase people around trying to eat them, and there’s a chance the dead will raise new zombies if they were killed by a zombie.
It’s relaxing at this point, since once zombies are created you can proudly watch them do all the work as they eat everything in sight, but as the game gets more difficult you can’t sit back unless you’ve upgraded a LOT. As you go through higher populated towns, they will send police, the army, special agents, and all sorts of skilled units to combat your glorious zombie threat. However, you have you’re own special “forces”….. (incoming spoiler picture)
As you kill and infect the living you will earn coins. Coins will also randomly drop on the screen that you can swipe your finger across to collect. With your blood money you can upgrade your zombies to eventually become unstoppable. Faster zeds? Stronger zeds? More infectious smelly zeds? Check and check! But wait theres more! You can unlock special zombies to summon in battle to add to the carnage, for example, I can unlock a pack of zombies to summon in addition to infecting people. You can also buy support items like grenades, and mines to help deal damage.
That’s all there is to it! A fun simple game for anyone on the fly or for fun, whether you have 5 minutes or a hour to kill. You can save anytime between cities. So go forth, give it a whirl, Raise a powerful zombie army, and devour the world!
