Introduction

Zombie: The Rescue is an excellent game, it’s hard to find a zombie game that doesn’t involve fighting of some sort but this game manages it very well. In fact, it’s more a case of strategy and hiding as well as rescuing hostages from the zombies.

Game-Play

It takes a little while to get used to movability in this game. Basically you need to use your finger, or perhaps a stylus to drag a route across the screen for your character to follow. As soon as you release your finger your character will start walking. The problem is if the zombies see you then they rush over and devour you in seconds. The trick of course, is to not let them see you. One way of doing this is moving when the zombies are facing away from you. They cannot turn around to see you, they also cannot see you if you hide behind objects, such as walls and they can also only see one character at a time. So, sometimes you may find you have to sacrifice your hostage in order to survive.

Objective

The objective is to rescue as many hostages and find as many objects as you can per level. With each advancing level there are more hostages to rescue and more zombies to chase and eat you.

There are sixty levels within this awesome game and each level has a maximum score of three stars. So if you feel that you really want to improve and try things another way having only achieved one star, then go back and try it again. Really, this game is so much fun you will want to do that.

Conclusion

We’ve got to say that this game is really excellent, not your more usual zombie styled game and perhaps better for it. We thoroughly recommend this game, don’t hesitate to download it today.
