[prMac.com] Bradford, United Kingdom - Westbright today released Zombies 1.0, a simple turn-based board game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Zombies is based on the old classic Daleks game. Zombies is suitable for all the family and is available in the App Store now.
* Enjoyable game play suitable for all the family
* Comedy sounds and fun soundtrack
* Beautiful cartoon graphics
* Choose either male or female player
"I've had great feedback from friends playing the game, particularly on the silly sound effects. Me and my wife had great fun recording them", said Matt West, co-founder and developer at Westbright. "Most of the apps with a zombie theme are not suitable for children because of the horror and gory images. We wanted a child-friendly Scooby Doo-like look and feel for our app which would appeal to kids, and to us big kids".
How To Play:
The object of each level is to wipe out all the zombies. The zombies always move towards your player, so you should avoid them! When the zombies collide with each other, they burst into flames. You can cast a Flee spell at any time. Fleeing is particularly useful when you have lots of zombies getting uncomfortably close. Some levels have Banish spells. Collect these and cast them to zap any nearby zombies.
What's coming in future versions?
"We have loads of ideas for more monsters and levels", said Matt. "We have had the graphics done for some of the pieces, so we hope to add these in future updates".
* Zombies works with any iPhone or iPod touch running OS 2.0 or above
Pricing and Availability:
Zombies is priced $2.99 (USD) and is available in the App Store now. Free promo codes are available for members of the press.
