Apple Staff Favorite in the US, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Spain and 14 other countries!
Top 5 in Simulation and Strategy on the iPad!

Watch a zombie outbreak unfold in real world environments, and alter the outbreak parameters to your liking. Do you prefer old-school slow movers, or the new fast movers? Is the population armed? How well can they shoot? How many police will be on patrol? Customize your own outbreak then watch the chaos unfold.

Zoom in and out to keep track of the infection as it spreads across the map! Watch from a high satellite view to get an overview of the infection, or zoom right in and watch as civilians run for their lives, shoot at zombies and inevitably become infected. Keep track of the people's only hope - local law enforcement, as they fight back against overwhelming odds.

Join in the action by raining fire from above with Mk81 and Mk82 bombs, delivered by A-10 Tank Killers! Parachute soldiers into the front lines to protect the civilians. Deploy helicopters to rescue civilians before they become overwhelmed.

From the Settings screen you can change the following parameters:

Civilian numbers
Civilian armed %
Civilian accuracy
Initial zombie numbers
Zombie outbreak direction (N, E, S, W, Map Wide)
Zombie speed
Infection time (how long it takes for infected civs to turn into zombies)
Number of police
Police accuracy
Soldier accuracy

From the Map Select screen you can choose from:

15 featured online maps, using Google Maps
5 offline maps (play anywhere even without an Internet connection)
Over 2,500 player maps using Google Maps, created by players of the game at www.class3outbreak.com

Map download does not work. And, yes, I am connected to the internet?

What can I do?

Is it possible, that I can only use one single map? Is it not customizable to, lets say, my hometown? Would be a HUGE downer...

Hi plastic_student, do you get an error message? Does the standard Google Maps app work okay?

Yes, the original release of ZOS for iOS just contains one map.

In the future we'll likely release an update which lets you play on any of the over 1500 user-created maps which are available on www.class3outbreak.com.

This looked tempting, because I thought it worked with any Google Maps location. ie: Sending zombies down my own street. That would be cool.

The App Store description says:
"Zombie Outbreak Simulator is a sandbox app where you customize your own zombie outbreak, on Google Maps"

...but it avoids saying "for a selected set of map locations". It's a shame, because otherwise it looks like fun.
