Hi iPhone gamers,

PREV POST
I am very happy to present a first preview for the upcoming ZombieSmash! here at TA.

Summarized in one formula:

ZombieSmash! = Castle Defense + Physics + SplatterEngine + Premium graphics & sound (Chris Huelsbeck)

Castle Defense: In ZombieSmash!, a group of survivors is barricading in a shack and defends themselves from attacking zombies. Say like in Night of the Living Dead You can help these survivors out by throwing zombies away, or more effectively smash them on the ground. This is fun by itself but we also start with approx. 20 different weapons that can do a lot of damage to these brain-eating bastards, most weapons in turn having 2 additional upgrades. Gameplay wise, there are regular survivor-mode levels as well as “puzzle” levels which means you have to survive with only one weapon, etc,..

Physics: In ZombieSmash!, a zombie is a ragdoll and damage to it is calculated in a “realistic” way. This makes it really fun to watch what happens when you smash a guy on the ground or let a grenade explode right next to it. Nothing is static, there is always a something new to see. We figured it is so much fun to watch the effect of different weapons that there is a sandbox-mode where zombies can be created at will and all weapons that have been unlocked are available.

SplatterEngine: I like gory games (with some minimum taste) but seeing the same blood animation over and over again is not the best you can do to entertain a zombie fan. Thus, for ZombieSmash!, we build a splatter engine to make sure that blood and body-parts come off the right way Safe for the squeamish, the amount of cartoon-style gore can be adjusted in the settings, even turned off but, hell, why do you get a zombie game?

Premium graphics & sound: Take a look at the screenshots. Things are still changing and we will further polish but its getting there. And sound? That Chris Huelsbeck sound is premium goes without saying .

I am hoping for your feedback!

Stay tuned at http://www.zombiesmash.gamedrs.com and www.twitter.com/zombiesmash.

4th picture got a laugh out of me. Mysterious red laser sight on unsuspecting zombie, reminds me of Predator.

I do like the graphics, very clean... 20 weapons sounds good too, more than most of the defense games I've played.

the artwork is definitely cool looking

...how much flicking do you expect to be involved versus us buying an using house based weapons?

...is there any video yet so we can see the physics in action?

I dislike Castle defense but I like killing zombies, and the graphics are lovely (I don't speak about the blood of course ). Weapons look funny too and your zombies are awesome *_*

I don't know the price but I'll give it a try

Question a) Mechanics are done. Working on tuning the gameplay. We try to find a fair mix between throwing zombies and using weapons. There are different classes of weapons. House based and weapons you can use by other mechanisms...Will post more on that soon..

Question b) It looks much better in video. Its hard to capture the action in a screenshot. Trailer should come out this month.

Art does look very sharp. Game mechanics sound good. Hopefully easy to switch between weapons and finger controls. Can't wait for the video!
