What is Rail Zombie
In “Rail zombie” you control a train trying to escape a zombie apocalypse. It is not your usual endless runner game. Play in a completely destructible world as you run over zombies and break world objects into pieces. Feel the destruction and experience immersive blood and breaking effects on your mobile screen. Collect weapons and shoot down zombies. And better yet, remember those slow-motions in Max payne? Now you have them in this endless runner game, enter slow-motion and blow up zombies in bullet-time mode with spectacular explosions as result.

Gameplay
You switch rails by swiping to left and right. Your objective is to get as far as possible and kill as many zombies as you can along the way. Many obstacles are along your way which you need to evade or dash through by swiping up. Killing zombies gives you experience points which increases your skill level. Killing is the most fun part. Run over zombies, collect many awesome weapons which shoot down zombies! and even better, enter bullet time mode and blow up zombies in slow-motion. With a higher skill level you will be able to buy and upgrade better trains and weapons.

Powerups
Big explosions, destruction and slaughtering of zombies is what makes Rail Zombie so much more fun! Throughout the game you can collect powerups. Powerups help you get more kills and destroy obstacles along your way.

There are three groups of powerups: Heavy Weapons, Bullet-time weapons and boosters.

I will add more information about each group soon but lets start with the most exciting one. The Bullet-time weapons.

Bullet-time weapons
Perhaps the most exciting and unique feature of the game is the bullet-time mode powerup.
Collecting a bullet-time powerup brings the player into slow-motion. Each weapon has a different mechanic to interact with. We will be adding more weapons that can be used in bullet-time mode soon.
Right now we have the grenade and the bazooka:
  1. Grenade: To use a grenade you drag from your train to target's position to throw.



  2. Bazooka: To use a bazooka you tab rapidly in target's direction to shoot projectiles.





Be ready to see more powerups soon!

A new perspective

Rail zombie has gone through many changes, perhaps the most interesting of the new changes is the change to its perspective.

While the game is still in 2D we have given the flat 2D image a 3D tilt to create a sense of 3D. the result is amazingly fantastic.
