Apple Approves Infamous Horror Film Director's First App for iOS

March 30, 2012 in Games (E)

[] Los Angeles, California - Herschell Gordon Lewis and ZombieActive Games today are pleased to introduce Hollyweird Zombies 1.0 for iOS, their Hollywood-themed, Zombie Shooter Game. It is the first and only Zombie Shooter approved by Apple and available on the iTunes App Store that allows gamers to customize their zombies using photos taken with their iPhone, or with images already in their Photo Library. The app is the perfect stress reliever. And to aid the cause of releasing pent up frustration, 10% of profits from the sale of Hollyweird Zombies in the election month of November will go to "Occupy" protesters around the U.S.

"Hollyweird Zombies is the perfect stress reliever," proclaimed app creator Nick Pawluk. "It can help reduce the anger and frustration experienced by the Occupy Wall Street protest groups around the country. All that pent up frustration and anger can be channeled in a fun and creative way with Hollyweird Zombies. Stressed out protestors, people just fired by their bosses, and people dumped by their boyfriend or girlfriend can turn those greedy bankers, mean bosses, and unfeeling exes into zombies. They can then start dispatching them in an entertaining and amusing fashion with the coolest arsenal available in any shooting game app."

With Hollyweird Zombies, players can take a photo of their boss, indicate the outline of his or her head, and have the photo appear as a character inside the zombie shooter game. There are six world-famous locations and 120 levels of gameplay. Frustrated gamers get to blow away the customized zombie of their choice using a bazooka, machine gun, chain saw, machete, and more. A comicbook style intro in the app sets up the action. "A Hollyweird movie premiere has turned into a zombie apocalypse. Now, the greatest horror director of all time, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Jr. must become the world's greatest zombie hunter. And the evil zombie lord, El Zombero, plans on turning Hollyweird's sexiest starlets into his zombie harem. The fate of Hollyweird and its sexiest stars is in Gordy's hands."
