Zombie Stomp - a retro 8bit style arcade game (by Simple Arcade)
Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up
Development of this game was started back in February of 2011. Since then, over 500 hours (at least) of playtesting and tweaking were invested to make sure that we created a 'simple arcade' game that was fun, balanced, perfectly suited for the iPhone/iPod Touch and worth every penny.
The initial game concept came from 'pixel doodling'. It was also started as a response if you will, after Tommy Refenes from Team Meat likened the iPhone to a Tiger handheld from the 80's. Growing up in the 80's I loved the simple handhelds but always saw them as very limited due to the limited hardware. I played a lot of the VFD (vacuum fluorescent display) handhelds and wanted to make a game that was spiritual successor of these old colorful handhelds, but without the debilitating limitations. We came up with a fun mechanic and fell in love with the simple minimalist pixel graphics. From this, Zombie Stomp was born.
The game was made specifically with the limitations of the iPhone in mind. The controls are tilt to move and tap to shoot or chop (otherwise the screen remains thumb-free). The chainsaw is automatic.
At the moment, high scores save locally (like old school arcade games), however we will consider global leaderboards, if we get enough demand.
Please try out the game and post feedback. Thank you for your time.
