"Dead Panic" Strategy / Shooter Game

Hi everyone, I'm Sean Maher, the developer of "Dead Panic", a zombie game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It's a shooter/strategy hybrid with (I think) an original gameplay hook.

Here are some exclusive screen shots, not displayed on the Dead Panic web site:







Dead Panic has a 13-level campaign with a sci-fi storyline, instant loading/saving for quick games, ipod integration, and a full soundtrack. If you like the atmosphere of Half-Life 2 and STALKER, you'll enjoy this game. If you like popping zombies in the head with a sniper rifle, you'll like this game.

The game is currently in review at Apple; I'll post links to the app store when Dead Panic is available. More info at deadpanic.com

I'm also available for podcast / blog / print interviews - I'm a full-time Independent developer with lots to say about the state of the app store, the future of the iPhone platform, and other Apple and Indie issues.

So by what I can see, you position players so that they cover as much space with their field of view and then you play as one player? Or can you play as them all?

Either way it does look pretty interesting. Interested in hearing more about it!

You position your players - and in some cases barricades - and then you control the aim of all players during gameplay. Your strategy depends on lines of sight, the position of your barricades, when to cover/asist other units, and the type of zombie (you've only seen one type in the screen shots!)

Thanks, I really hope everyone enjoys it. I worked hard to make it fun and polish it until it shone, and I enjoy playing it myself.

It looks like Bucks scooped me - Apple approved the game today, five days earlier than I expected!

I look forward to hearing your reviews.

Looks pretty cool, but I really didn't get your answer much above, so you get to switch to the other players? Or they are just cpu's?

Also, it be nice if you integrated Co-op into the game also , I'll look forward to the game when it comes out
