Tread of the Dead - Coming August 16th


Tread of the Dead is a tilt-based survival game where zombies are the enemy. In each level, you must steer your weapons to kill approaching zombies before you are infected. Each weapon in your arsenal has a unique ability that will aid you in killing the horde.

Features:
+ Over 100 challenging levels
+ 5 unique modes
+ Boss fights!
+ Universal
+ Beautiful Retina graphics
+ Smooth 60fps on all devices
+ Game Center support with Leaderboards and Achievements
+ Listen to your own music!
+ Unlockable weapon skins
+ Customizable tilt sensitivity
+ Stat tracker
+ Free updates with new levels, modes, and weapon skins!










I have been working on this game, by myself, for well over a year now. So hopefully everyone will enjoy it.

There's also a Lite version, which has unique levels different from the full version, one unlockable skin, and two weapons to try.

Arcade Mode
Battle against an endless horde of zombies with the aid of power-ups.

Infinisaw Mode
Saw your way through endless zombies to keep your combo up and survive.

Vehicular Mode
Put the pedal to the metal and splatter as many zombies as you can while avoiding obstacles.

Zombified Mode
You are the zombie. Avoid the endless barrage of weapons to stay alive...dead...whatever.

The game looks great, but I have to bring up a small point...

Plants vs. Zombies was originally called Lawn of the Dead. They had to change the name...because...well....Romero. Are you positive calling this "______ of the Dead" isn't going to get you into any sorts of problems?

Yea i had the same thought, but I think it will be fine. It has no relation to Romero's works at all, except for having zombies. I don't see how you can copyright "of the Dead"...

Gameplay Video by TouchGameplay:

Tread of the Dead Gameplay

Don't be fooled by the choppy framerate, and non-synced SFX, that's all from the recording program they used.

It runs at all times at a smooth 60fps...on all devices.
