Hoffman Estates, Illinois – High Voltage Software is aware of the budding movement amongst man and animal alike as they push for independence from independent thought. To help raise awareness of the undead plight for equality, High Voltage Software is reducing the price on its hit game, Zoombies: Animales de la Muerte!, to just $0.99. This castle-defense-genre game has been lauded by critics for its action-heavy undead fun and novel gameplay style, which lets users trace the path of their weapon of choice, including roman candle fireworks, bear traps, and even a rampaging chupacabra.
Since the Mexican zombie apocalypse began on the iTunes Store earlier last month, players have tragically left more than 25 million undead animals lifeless… again. On top of this, those same people have “cured” as many as 300,000 additional undead. While many would laud this as progress, there comes a time in every hot-button issue in which we must examine our decisions.
Developer and Undead Freedom Fighter, Eric Nofsinger, is trying to raise awareness and undead sensitivity amongst mankind. “Once, we felt as many people do, that the undead were merely for mowing down in vast numbers and amusingly gruesome ways,” says Nofsinger. “But, after the gentle nibbling of these poor creatures on my brain, I’ve come around to understanding the plight of these misunderstood animals.” When asked if this meant that the game would no longer feature such spectacular violence against the zombie armies, Nofsinger replied, “No, of course not. The game will remain the same, but we hope through the act of killing thousands upon thousands of these poor creatures, some sympathy might grow within your hearts.”
The game provides nonstop zombie action through 45 levels and 225 challenging Sugar Skull Missions that require timing, strategy and precision. Players have the option to battle as either Marco or Maria, two deceptively deadly youngsters who pack a bevy of powerful weapons, while trying to rescue as many animals as possible before their brains are eaten by the Zoombies. Adding to the fun, golden pesos can be exchanged for Especiales upgrades, weapons, and costumes.
The game, available as a universal app for iPhone, iPad, and iPad Touch, mixes cartoon artistry with gory details, and has been awarded fantastic reviews from gamers on the iTunes App Store, where it averages 4.5 stars, as well as purple hearts from IGN, Pocket Gamer UK, and Gamezebo.
