Zombies vs. Sheep - A slapstick zombie shooter

Hello Touch Arcade Forum members,

I just wanted to update you on the state of Zombies vs. Sheep, our upcoming tap-to-shoot horror survival slapstick zombie game.



Your mission: Protect the sheep from incoming waves of zombies!

Move your sheep by tilting the phone. Shoot by tapping the enemies. Reload by quickly flicking the phone in any direction. Zombies vs. Sheep is a frenetic tap-to-shoot game set in a mexican-themed shooting gallery. As the evening gets darker you will face more and stronger enemies. You are the last hope of the sheep.

The game features 10 levels and is played in survival mode save sheep after sheep. Be sure to upgrade your sheep in the store to be able to keep up!

I really liked the game as a whole. The art style, unique gameplay, and sheer fun of it. Trent Nathan Taylor

I love that you can upgrade in the shop. It made me a lot more confident in winning and pushed me to keep playing. iSmallZx

I believe this is a must buy. It is one of those games that is hard to come by. It is so unique and original. The soundtrack is great and the gameplay is smooth with great feint community connection to challenge friends. It's easy to pick up and play at any time. Robert 'TR3S' Brown

LOVE the art direction, guys. Plus it looks like a ton of fun to play. I think I'm going to write up something about it now, best of luck with launch

Do you know what price you're going to launch at?

your sheep at the bottom only has a limited amount of lives, you have to avoid the flaming skulls that drop down from above
