About OneButtonJoypad and Mogworks:
Zombie Bumper Cars came to be through a chance meeting between two iPhone game developers in a coffee shop somewhere in the West of Scotland. It turned out that these developers lived in neighboring cities, and both had recently made a successful 3D iPhone game that the other one liked, and both had a love for arcade games for the iPhone. The freakishly coincidental nature of these similarities were discussed and analyzed in length, during which time it was realized that:
3: They should definitely pool their skills and experience and make some brilliant mobile games together.
2: World domination has to start somewhere.
1: Scotland is a rather small place.
So over the next nine months they developed Zombie Bumper Cars. Zombie Bumper Cars has been designed as a family oriented game, made in a cartoon style. Both developers believe that sometimes the best mobile games take only a second to pick up and learn, and often only need played with a single finger. Zombie Bumper Cars has been developed with this in mind.
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.1.3 or later
