Default Containment: The Zombie Puzzler



This got a very positive review on the Touch Arcade front page, but I could not find a thread. It looks really great, but it is pricey. Has anyone tried it yet?

This looks really good and the review was very positive. I may give this a go, there were a lot of releases already though.

This has a lot going for it, in my opinion. Theme and presentation are excellent. I'm certainly enjoying it.

It looks really creative, but uses a number of mechanics I don't care for (e.g I prefer forced adjacent switching and don't like time pressure). I hope it does well for the developer though. Love to see what they one up with next.

Glad to hear you guys are enjoying the game. We're working hard on an additional survival map that we'll be adding as a free addition here in the near future!

Is it just the one or are more unlocked as one gets further in the campaign?

The initial release has the Campaign of over 100 blocks, and the 20 block Survival level tied to the Leaderboards. We're working on an additional Survival level now that will have its' own Leaderboard.

We're always looking for way to make it better though, so any suggestions would be great to see!

I was really excited to play this but I am not having that much fun. While I love the theme of the game, the game itself is not that engaging. (for me)

The tap and drag control options could be tightened up a little. But my main complaint is that each puzzle feels too controlled. Unlike a regular matching game where there are several moves that can always be made, it seems like this game is much more limited. It almost feels like what ever people group has the largest number, just move them around the zombies.

I am early in the game but I am thinking that this may get deleated soon.

I'm loving the game, especially Survival, but it gets VERY laggy on my iPad 1st Gen after continued play even after a fresh reboot.
