App description: -- Expansion Recovery Instructions Below --

**Touch Arcade - 9/10 "Organ Trail: Director's Cut is a weird, wonderful and almost surprisingly expansive experience that will both infuriate and enchant."**

**148 Apps - 9/10 "Virtually every aspect of Organ Trail: Directors Cut oozes style and cleverness."**

**Jay Is Games - "Organ Trail: Director's Cut is a quirky, darkly humorous, and off-beat love letter to retro gaming."**

**Game Trailers - "Its definitely one of the more intense and cerebral zombie games out there"**


Organ Trail is a retro zombie survival game. Travel westward in a station wagon with 4 of your friends, scavenging for supplies and fending off the undead. Members of your party might die of dysentery or you might have to put them down yourself when they get bit.

Packed full of zombie mechanics, themes and references; this is a must have for any zombie survival fans.

-- Expansion Recovery Instructions --

We are currently working on submitting a fix for the restore purchases button, but this is the work around before it's approved:

1. Kill the game by double tapping the home button from the home screen and tapping the "-" next to Organ Trail at the bottom of the screen.
2. Make sure you are logged in with the same account you bought the expansion with.
3. Launch the game.
4. Tap on "Get Expansion", "Buy the expansion", and Buy and it will pop up with a dialog explaining you have already purchased it and to tap OK to download it again. Tap OK and it should activate.
5. Tap no thanks and the expansion should be unlocked.

In short this game is totally awesome.

Graphics are pretty cool retro looking stuff and the music is good.
The gameplay IMO (being English so not really caring about the Oregon trail story) is brilliant, it's so much better than the Oregon trail. The problems you encounter along the way are truly great, I even felt pretty bad when I shot my friend Paul because I thought he might turn on me =)
That's another very cool point, if you choose to kill one of your team mates you have to actually pull the trigger yourself! This really makes it seem like your the group leader making the decisions.
The mini games are pretty cool too, scavenging for resources while shooting and avoiding zombies works well.

All in all this is a great game and like Z-day zombie survival I can see me coming back to this time and time again to see how long I can last.
Well worth the price grab this now!

A fantastic iOS title! All of the enhancements in the directors cut are top notch. The new art has a very wasteland feel to it (and of course that's always good). The new tunes to the soundtrack are great as well. The new mini games are fun and entertaining, their is a particular one that stands out for me; Standing on your Station Wagon and defending it from a horde. Everything added was a gain for the better.

Of course the core essence of the original flash title remains, better then ever when combined with all the enhancements. All of that added to the fact that it has no in-app purchases at all, really drives home the value of this title. If you haven't bought it yet, do yourself a favor and get it.

dev question (If of course they are stalking these forums): When will the PC version be released?

I'm hoping some time near the end of the month or early September. I have no idea what it takes to get on Steam though so who is to say.

Any big differences between the PC version and the iOS version?

Looks awesome and love the art style and all. Will download in a bit, but is there any chance someone could tell me if you can start a game and open/close the app and continue that same game?

Will buy anything made by Ponos or Halfbrick or a dedicated indie dev. Favourite iOS games: Super Crate Box, Junk Jack, Fruit Ninja, Jetpack Joyride, Dungeon Raid, Rebuild, Rage HD, oh I could go on...

The word "tap" will be replaced with "click."

Haha, honestly not much. We will try some keyboard control schemes and maybe a few audio filters or something. That's about it. It was designed for all platforms from the get-go.
