I'm not talking something like Zombiewood or SAS where you protect a base. Preferably it should be a premium game with a dark atmosphere. And with tons of zombies on screen at once. Like a bullet hell game but with zombies instead of bullets. If you've played Dead Nation, you know what I mean.

Thanks
You don't realize it, but you are talking something like SAS.

I played SAS 3 where you're defending the house. Are the other SAS games different?

SAS 3 has hundreds of zombies at once in the screen, it can get pretty hectic. Especially in apocalypse mode. But seeing them all just dissolve right in front of you when you tear them up with, like, say, a fully upgraded minigun, is extremely satisfying.

The only other SAS game on iOS is SAS TD, but I can't recommend that.

Really? Okay then, I got to try it again. Must have not played enough
How were the freemium aspects? Paywall or only if you wanted?

A little bit of both with the upgrades and all, but not that much. The strongest weapons cost a lot to upgrade to the max, but that makes sense. You don't need it fully upgraded for it to be effective. I enjoyed this game so much though that I bought some premium weapons.

Awesome lists! Thanks guys. However, if anyone else is around, I'm still open to a few more suggestions. To be honest, I game a lot while playing podcasts, so some of these twitch based shooters won't really hit the right spot for me. I like something I can take my time with and won't sap all my focus.

Someone mentioned Brainsss and Infect Them All, and I'll definitely be checking those out.

I've played Zombie Gunship pretty extensively, and it was good while it lasted. After a while, I got tired of trying to dodge the humans AND save them, so I put it down. I like the mode where all the people disappear and it's just zombie shootin' fun, but since it's only temporary and can't be switched off and on by command, it lost me.

I played the The Walking Dead: Assault, but I honestly can't remember much about it other than it lasted a day on my phone before getting deleted. Maybe I'll give it a second shot, but I don't recall feeling impressed.

I intend to give Telltale's version a chance, but like I said, I'm looking for something I can play while listening to a story-based podcast.

(By the way, if anyone wants a great zombie podcast, look up "We're Alive". Best radio-drama ever. I must be relistening to it for the 5th or 6th time now.)


Anyways, if anyone also knows of any zombie games that are more strategy oriented, I'm all ears.

Definitely give Telltale's WD a chance, but yeah not something to play while listening to a podcast.

It's not out yet, it's still in development (by me), but you might be into this when it's ready!

I'm personally always looking for a bit more of a hardcore gaming experience on the iPad and iPhone, so I wanted to make something I'd want to buy myself!

It's got semi-procedural level elements, so each level plays differently every time you play, which certainly makes things much more fun and varied for me while developing it!

Zombies!!! just arrived and apparently it's pretty good. Based on a tabletop game, but changed slightly for the digital audience.
