Zombie Runaway for Android offers a new perspective on running games

Aug 5, 2011

The movies give zombies a bad rap — they don’t all want to eat your brains for breakfast. This new perspective on the undead is just one of the fun little twists you’ll find in this Android game.

In The developers did a fantastic job designing how the game looks, and they did just as thorough a job of programming. These controls are very precise, and when you run into something in this game, it’s your own fault. The challenge of navigating your way around those grave stones might be frustrating, but at least you don’t have a shoddily-made game to blame.

Zombie Runaway is a difficult game to master, but it doesn’t feel impossible to do well. Players have three different hearts, or three different blows that they can sustain before actually dying (you can earn more by collecting lots of coins). This way, you don’t stay alive for 20 minutes only to lose everything to an off-beat monument stone.

It’s the game’s funky soundtrack that makes the whole experience cinematic and exciting. The music is upbeat, yet mysterious, and doesn’t feel repetitive at all. The reactions from an imaginary off-screen audience are also very encouraging.

Zombie Runaway has some pretty heavy advertising, unfortunately, but it’s the only negative I could come up with. Because it’s free, though, Android gamers should check this one out.
