Fuse Powered and Rebellion have released their top down Zombie shooter game for iOS devices today, and it’s free. Zombie HQ features some brilliant looking visuals featuring top down twin stick shooter-esque gameplay. I had a chance to load this freebie onto my new iPad, and I must say that it does get pretty addicting. The missions are fast and frenetic, and there’s a heavy helping of gore due to the brutal deaths that you unleash upon the zombie hoard.
I’ve included some screenshots of Zombie HQ below for reference, but considering that the game is free I’d just go ahead and give it a go on your iOS device of choice to see if it’s a keeper or not. Just know that like most high quality free apps there’s a heavy helping of in-game purchases to round out the gaming experience, so it could end up costing you in the end. You’ve been wondering if our zombie obsession will ever end…
