[prMac.com] Brisbane, Australia - Zombie Juice recently reached 11th on the Australian iPad Arcade Chart, 43rd on the iPad Games Chart and 88th on the Australian iPad Apps Chart. Gamers in the United States (US) are also lapping up Zombie Juice as it ranked 63rd on the US iPad Arcade Chart and 83rd on the iPad Action Chart. Additionally, the game featured in the 'New and Noteworthy' lists in 119 countries.
Director of Bifrost Studios, Danielle Chaney, said Zombie Juice was unique because the player had to physically slice and dice the zombies with his or her finger to annihilate them.
"Zombie Juice is a quick casual game set at 'your' house during a zombie apocalypse. Household items including a knife and nail gun, lawnmower, exploding gas bottle and even a detonating garden gnome are at your disposal to fend off the hoard of zombies to save your home, and of course your brain," Ms Chaney said.
"Other zombie games on the market only allow you to place items underneath or in front of the zombies to blow up, shoot or gradually kill them.
"The beauty of this game is that it's visually vibrant and easy to play. Zombie Juice's controls are simple because they are commanded by the player's finger. Another cool feature of Zombie Juice is its integration of OpenFeint, which allows gamers to team up with other players and compare high scores."
Casual gamer, Harrison Stitt, said he liked Zombie Juice's disturbing but loveable characters.
"The rankings you're granted are hilarious, the characters rock and the medallion reward system becomes an addictive hobby. What I particularly love about this game is its emphasis on mess, which has been done beautifully - you can almost taste the juice as it splashes across your screen, it's awesome," Mr Stitt said.
Zombie Juice is just 99 cents and available now along with the free version, Zombie Juice Lite, on both the Mac App Store and Android Market.
Bifrost Studios' General Manager, Simon Banks, said Zombie Juice comprised the ingredients of your favorite horror flicks.
"It lets you do all the things you've ever wanted to in a slasher game, resulting in a fast, funny and delectably gory gaming experience. Zombie Juice has the perfect balance of action and humour, and more chapters are already set for release," Mr Banks said.
"We really wanted to create something that shook up people's perceptions of delicious and disgusting by rolling both senses into one tantalising concoction. I hope everyone worldwide enjoys this delightfully ghoulish boredom killer."
