App description: 148apps: "For fans of the side-scrolling shoot-em-up, Apocalypse Max delivers quite a lot in a fairly compact package. Requiring a fair amount of concentration, but never overly harsh, it wants you to be a survivor and will equip you with the appropriate weapon to do so." TheVerge: "With the zombie shooter, Wandake Game Studios reminds us why we love killing undead, by doing what everyone else has done. Just better." TouchArcade: "We're digging Max. The production elements are off the wall good, which helps. But more importantly, we're clicking with its action. Solid pacing keeps you moving, while sharp level design keeps introducing interesting choices." PocketGamer: "Enter the no-nonsense star of Wandake's new blood splattered side-scroller Apocalypse Max: Better Dead Than Undead. He's got guns. He's got knives. He's called Max."

Exact-Psience's comments:


Looks to possibly be the best release this week. The previous 2 weeks' releases spoiled me too much that im craving for much quality than the usual casuals.

This might just be it. But im not downloading this until i finish Wild Blood so i can delete it. It's another massive 353mb before install.

EDIT: I just realized it might not be out worldwide yet.

My offer still stands. I've been playing this game on and off all day and i'm not even remotely tired of it. I look forward to ratcheting up the difficulty and giving it another go. The only other game I was this excited to play was gear of war 1. Imo its right up there with the best of them. Kudos to the developer for creating such a masterpiece!

Yep - i've been travelling with work all week and tracking what look like very poor releases. This has brightened my weekend. Seeing it compared to Metal Slug and Ghosts and Goblins by psj got me. Great game and actually would be perfect on iCade. Well done.

I think it's safe to say this is one of 2012's best action shooter releases.

One advice, ask around in the forums if it works on an outdated device first before buying. The devs may overlook to change the description on the appstore. Most of the good looking releases now will probably give the older devices a hard time at reading and playing them.

What made Castlevania and Metroid click for me is the vast areas and the exploration involved. This doesnt have any, but it does everything it offers at the highest grade.

Click report in iTunes at the record of your purchase of the game and say its not compatible with your device and you'll get a refund from Apple without any bother.
Some games just won't run on older devices.
And the developer can't really give you a refund from here as Apple actually has that money at the moment.
But the report in iTunes should work out for you.
