Default Zmbi (by Gambit)


Zmbi has been released.

This "Upcoming" thread is closed.

-------


Zmbi is the result of my personal 72-hour challenge to make a game. The original discussion and progress updates are here: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=159717 but I've created this new one in the "upcoming" forum since it's almost done!

The game will be available on Nov 7! It will be FREE for two days of initial release!



Here're some screenshots and a video of the gameplay.

Some updates on my 80th hour: the challenge has already ended. I failed since I decided to add in a much needed feature.. since the gameplay is simple, it lacked replay-ability, and hence lacked some form of achievement or objective system. I think it would be better to put this in now than later.

I didn't want to put in plain game center achievements since those are boring. I wanted something somewhat challenging, something that can reward the player, something visual, and doesn't require in-game currency and in-app purchases.

Thus, I added a "human head collection" in the game! You basically play through the game, and each human you turn into a zmbi gets his head added to your collection. Filling up a collection with heads gives you a slight advantage. e.g. giving an additional zombie at the start of the game, or prompts you to encounter more brains. You'll need to collect 600 heads all in all to get everything complete.

Heads up, the game will be available tomorrow (Nov 7) instead of Thursday (Nov 8) to steer away from another game that's releasing on Nov 8. Zmbi will be FREE for 2 days!

Thanks all!

Looks cool! Slightly reminiscent of a game by the name of 'Zombie Tsunami,' in which you endlessly run devouring people as you go.

@Primoz Nope this won't have any IAPs, I personally don't enjoy playing a paid game then the game still tries to squeeze money from you by forcing you to grind levels.

@SteakfryOne Believe it or not I just found out about Zombie Tsunami a week ago! I see the resemblance with the game being endless and the amount of zombies you have are your lives. ZT is more jump-and-avoid-falling, while Zmbi is more of swipe-obstacles-since-they-can-kill-you Anyway, I enjoyed the heck out of Zombie Tsunami and finished all the objectives (spoiler: bummer that the objectives just loop back to the start after you finish them all, I wanted more!)

The game is out now! Get it while it's free!

Suggestions for updates are welcome ofcourse, let's make the game better!
