The game works great on all iPhone / iPod touch products! Granted the frame rate on a iPod touch 1st gen is not up to a 3GS... Its still fun. We used the accelerometer for tilt to turn on older platforms and as an option on the 3GS.

The game was submitted on 6/29. It took longer than the usual 7 days - but - better late than never. I guess it's time to pull the trigger on the update we have locked and ready to ship!

I just saw the future my friends, and it started without me bc I don't have a 3GS.

I can see it now: ppl spinning in the streets, acting strange, while actually saving lives and all of humanity. Who's gonna make the first HUD iPhone helmet/goggles???

The 1st submission can get intense.. But if you like Zombie games... Is there anything but intense? ;-) Version 1.01 (to be submitted monday) adds polish to the rush to be 1st in the 3GS control arena!

LOL I understand. When I got wind of the low-cost digital compass chips when they shipped a year ago - I was like HOLY CR@P - this will change everything! Thanks Apple!!

Running on a 2g touch with tilt and it is a good fun casual zombie slayer, In it's current build it gets a little repetative but has heaps of update potential.

Some suggested added content would be:
Extra bonus pickups for progressivley larger weapons and ammo clips.
Changing backgrounds and lighting conditions as you progress through the days.
Maybe a few different zombies with varied speed, movement and kill rates.
The ability to target and explode the barrels for multiple kills.
A screen flip option for the Touch and tilt sensitivity settings.

Looking forward to future updates.
