(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really a full fledged game review as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a certain game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know whether it’s worth your time/money or not.)
So, back in late April a game released on the App Store that originally I wasn’t too impressed with. To be honest, I never really gave it a chance. I’m not sure what other games released that week, if it was a busy time for me or what. I know that the app description and screenshots never really had me sold regardless.
Well, I finally gave the game another try last week and I’m actually pretty impressed!!
The game is called, Zombie Fest and is by developer, Tiramisu. (Fun Fact: Tiramisu IIetisim ve Reklam Hizmetleri is actually the developer’s full name.)
Zombie Fest is a tough game to describe, but easy to figure out once you start playing. I guess you could say that it’s kind of a mashup of a one-stick shooter and a defense game. The game is level based and your objective is to clear out three waves of zombies per level. To do this, you must take cover in randomly placed “bunkers” scattered throughout each area. Each bunker is loaded with a random weapon with a limited amount of ammo. These weapons can range from dual pistols, RPGs, sniper rifles, flamethrowers and a bunch more. Once your ammo is out, you’ll need to book it to the next bunker and so on until you’ve defeated all the zombies.
There are 3 different worlds with 9 levels plus an endless mode in each world. It’s a rather short game, but after about mid-way through the game, things start getting pretty tough and you’ll need to grind in the endless areas or play older levels so you can upgrade your weapons.
Zombie Fest isn’t the greatest thing to look at. The visuals are VERY basic and almost childish looking, but what it lacks in the graphics department, it more than makes up for it in with its uniqueness and fun gameplay. It’s of course, F2P with IAPs, but I’ve played through almost the entire game and haven’t felt the need to purchase anything. You can earn coins at a pretty decent clip and gems can be picked up in endless mode or by winning every 4 hours on a wheel of chance thing. So, if you’re looking for a fun one-handed game or something a little different, Zombie Fest is a hidden gem worth trying.
