Zombie Tsunami - Bite Your Way Through The Post-Apocalyptic City
Sometimes you really need to kill some time - while waiting in a queue, sitting in a boring class or lecture, or while commuting. One of the best ways to do that is playing games on your phone. Most likely, you own a smartphone which runs on either iOS or Android, which means that you have access to thousands of mobile games that have been developed over the past decade. Finding a good game in such a vast variety is not easy, but you can be sure that the game described in this article is pretty good and deserves your attention. Let’s take a closer look at Zombie Tsunami.
There’s a high probability that you remember the time when everyone was playing the endless runner games on their mobile devices. Endless runners reached the peak of their popularity several years ago and today you can find a lot of different-themed games in both Play Market and App Store. Zombie Tsunami is probably one of the best horizontal endless runners that are available for both platforms.
True to the game’s title, the gameplay is based on an imaginary situation where a zombies tsunami overruns a city. You’re playing for one of the zombies who dashes through the post-apocalyptic-looking city, looking for defenseless humans to turn them into fellow zombies and cause further mayhem together. This may sound pretty simple, but wait until you get well into the game - it gets more and more challenging with every person you turn into a zombie.
The first time you launch the game, you’ll have to go through a brief tutorial which shows you how to play and what are the objectives. Once you start playing “for real”, you’ll have a zombie guy running through the streets looking for survivors. As soon as you see some, run straight ahead towards them, and your zombie will bite them, instantly creating more zombies. The number of new zombies is equal to the number of attacked humans. The more zombies you have, the higher are your chances of surviving and continuing your potentially endless run through the city. The zombie you started out with doesn’t necessarily have to survive all the way through the game. As long as you have at least one zombie up and running, the game goes on, and it doesn’t matter whether it is the original one or not.
Apart from completely unprotected people, you’ll also see vehicles crammed with survivors on the streets. Vehicles provide some protection for the people, and above each one you’ll see a number which shows how many zombies are required to turn it over. If you have enough zombies, you can just go running straight at the vehicle, and the brain-craving monsters will do the rest. Once they flip the vehicle over, the survivors are left unprotected and can easily be attacked (and turned into zombies, of course). The minimum number of zombies required to attack a vehicle is two (for a car). If you only have one zombie, you’d better jump over that car because trying to turn it over will result in the zombie being stuck behind it and you’ll lose. Apart from cars, you can also unleash your zombies on buses, tanks and planes.
If the concept doesn’t seem challenging enough, consider this: there are more than 300 missions available to complete while you’re dashing through the city. Some of them are fairly easy, but others might keep you busy for hours. What’s more, you can collect coins and spend them in the shop to buy power-ups and bonuses, which can also be found on the streets. With them, you can create a Giant Zombie out of all your regular zombies (it can crash and destroy absolutely everything), multiply your existing zombies using a UFO or explore the city as a Ninja. Speaking of cities, if you ever get tired of running around your current location, you can switch to another one (there are currently 11 locations available in the Zombie Tsunami game.
Design is often a great part of a game’s appeal, and Zombie Tsunami isn’t doing too bad here either. The colors used for the interface as well as for the gameplay itself are bright and catch your attention easily. The graphics are high-quality and even go into some details, painting the general picture of a zombie-overrun city even brighter. For instance, if you look into the background while playing, you’ll see other zombies biting people, crowds of helpless survivors screaming for help and other people. The graphics aren’t realistic, rather comical, which adds a nice touch to the gameplay. Overall, the design of the Zombie Tsunami game is pretty impressive and the only concern one could possibly have about it is that the colors might be a little too contrasting.
The Zombie Tsunami app is easy to install and use. It is also pretty stable, which means that you won't be interrupted by bugs and crashes while playing. There is virtually nothing to distract you from the game as you direct the zombie crowds through the streets.
Cross-Platform Use 10/10
Zombie Tsunami is a game that is best played on a mobile device, so no wonder that it isn't available for your Windows PC or Mac. However, the game is available for virtually any mobile device you could own: you can download and play it on phones and tablets that run on Android, iOS and Windows Phone/Mobile.
Zombie Tsunami is a free game, but it also offers some in-app purchases (you can buy some additional coins from the in-game store).
Endless runners might not be as popular as they were a couple years ago, but Zombie Tsunami is definitely a game that is worth trying any time. It has everything that you could expect from an awesome time-killing game: interesting gameplay, bright high-quality graphics and a lot of missions to keep you occupied.
Even if you aren't a fan of endless runners, you still might want to try Zombie Tsunami for some hours of zombie-loaded fun.
Pros : Free game without annoying ads;
Available for almost all mobile devices.
Cons : The concept of an endless runner game might be a little beaten by now;
Zombie Tsunami apk file sometimes won't install correctly on budget Android devices despite optimization claims from the developers.
