Apocalypse Max Game Launch Sep.14, 2012!!

Hi Everyone,

We're now ready to launch our new game, Apocalypse Max: Better Dead Than Undead!!

Check out the official game trailer:


Game Description:
Overrun by a mysterious strain of mutant zombies, Hellthroat Island has never been more in need of a real hero. You, Apocalypse Max, are the lone survivor of this zombie apocalypse. Journey through 20 levels of heart-thumping, adrenaline-pumping action spread out over 9 perilous worlds! Master in-air maneuvers as you find your way around precarious platforms. Discover secret treasures and collect gold as you overcome more than 16 wacky types of zombies. Unlock over 18 insane weapons and find crazy ways to blast past your enemies.

Don't like guns? Wanna get up close and personal? No problem! Rip apart your foes with your oversized, battle-hardy combat knife.
For the first time ever on iOS, Wandake Studios present to you the re-invention of the classic retro platforming experience. Apocalypse Max combines timeless zombie slaying fun with free roaming, acrobatic platforming awesomeness to create an action packed, hack-n-slash, shoot-em-up adventure like the world has never seen before!

More screenshots and artwork on our Facebook page. Check it out! We'd love to hear your comments.

Looking forward to your support,
Wandake

Damn this looks great, plus its not an endless runner! Nervous about the controls, can the dev let us know how it'll work ? (Please no crazy tilt system !)

But it looks great, a mix of Metal Slug/Contra, roll on weds night

@ Biggavelli & master lee: Thanks guys! You've showed us a lot of support even when we posted about this game a few months ago. Unfortunately, we had some set backs and we had to push the release to now.

@ psj3809: Yea, its not an endless runner. The game has been inspired by some of our favorite platformers like the ones you mentioned. We've also tried to keep the control scheme simple. Don't worry there is no tilt ;-)

Controls:
Directional buttons on the lower left.

Jump, Grenade throw, and Fire on the lower right. Also a small button for weapon change. Finally you can use either of your thumbs to swipe in the direction you want Max to swing his knife! We went through more than 9 different control schemes before we finally finalized on this as the easiest and most intuitive.

That. Video. Is. Fantastic.

Great trailer, great graphics, and it looks like the controls are going to be optimal from the sound of things posted here. Looking forward to shooting down zombies with Max!
