[prMac.com] Coldwater, Michigan - WickeyWare, a new mobile game developer specializing in all things off-the-wall, has today announced it's excitement with the successful recent release of Zombie Archer for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch devices running on iOS 4.0 or later. This whimsical sharp shooting adventure was embraced by Apple's App Store Almost immediately after its release, where it found a place on the mobile marketplace's lauded New & Noteworthy Games category.
This said, simply calling Zombie Archer a shooting game doesn't really do it justice. The game's main hero is a cartoonishly stylized Robin Hood of the dead type, and players are free to use everything from arrows to bombs to dispatch their undead foes and venture ever closer to saving their beloved princess. Zombie Archer is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for only $0.99, this price will remain until Saturday, April 2nd, when it will go up.
At its core, this zombie killing extravaganza is a classically structured arcade adventure. The game includes over twenty sequentially more challenging levels, as well as three separate game difficulty settings for players to challenge themselves on. Since Zombie Archer gets more difficult with each level it's only fair that the game offers players the chance to upgrade and diversify their selection of weapons. Getting your hands on better weapons and awesome upgrades in the game is a simple and time tested proposition. Kill zombies to collect points and use the points to improve your weapons, with upgrades including everything from multi-shot arrows to exploding arrowheads. The app even includes a screenshot capture option just incase a player pulls off a zombie annihilating move so awesome they have no choice but to share its aftermath in all its glory with literally everyone they know.
From an aesthetic and technical viewpoint, Zombie Archer is a polished mobile gaming experience in everyway as well. The app utilizes original handmade artwork as well as original music, and features Core Animated graphics which allow users to switch between the game and another app quickly without lagging or long load times. Zombie Archer's controls and general layout are simple and extremely intuitive, with the game's aiming system proving to be exceptionally responsive and easy to master. This sound technical foundation, together with the game's light hearted stylization and fast paced gameplay, come together to ensure that Zombie Archer is at once endlessly fun and deviously addicting!
