Please note, that ZKW-Reborn is best played with iPhone 5 and up. May NOT work on older devices!

"The triumphant return of a fan favorite sidescroller, ZKW-Reborn stands on the shoulders of its predecessor to achieve even greater heights of awesomeness"

Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn is a challenging, fast paced, 2D survival shooter! And when we say fast, we mean breakneck, flat-out, adrenaline fuelled fast! Whats different from the other shooters is your goal isnt to run through levels and finish the game, but to survive for as long as possible under increasingly frantic conditions (we say as long as possible because ultimately you will die!).

Seems simple enough, but where Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn really takes off is in the added layers of depth and huge variety of features and customisation available. Players earn money for slaughtering the zombies (money might not bring you happiness, but it does buy you guns!). We live in a consumer society after all, which is useful, as you can spend big on over 25 different weapons (including chainsaw, katana, mini-gun, RPG, D.O.M. and many others!). You also need cash to open doors, activate jumps, buy new weapons, or hunt for the magic fridge and see what loot drops are inside! In short the longer you survive, the more weapons and prizes you get.

Surviving longer also gains you ZKW-Points which you can cash in to totally customize your character, customize your weapons, buy new weapons, buy different perks, open new maps, and a lot lot more! Players also earn XP as they play, allowing them to level-up their character and develop them to fit their chosen gameplay skills. Survival is all about the margins, and every little extra helps!

Still Running just announced the release of their popular game “Zombie Kill of the Week – Reborn” on iOS.

Already loved by Android players and the Steam community, Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn is now available on iOS. It's a challenging, fast paced, 2D survival shooter! When we say fast, we really mean breakneck, flat-out, adrenaline fuelled fast!

Packed with features, it also supports cross platform play, so you can join your Android & PC mates in the crazy co-op multiplayer mode.

I have this on steam.

It says there's IAP. But there's nothing listing what it is in the description.

I'd like to know what the deal is with that before I spend $3

I do like that it is cross platform!

The IAP's are there just to give the players an option to purchase extra ZKW-Points
So you will get the full version with that $3

Here is the original thread if anyone is interested: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=210513

Basically this game came out a couple of years ago and was quite well-received, then a falling out with the publisher meant it got semi-abandoned for a bit until it could get back in the hands of the original developers. Now it appears they've gotten the game back, polished it up a whole lot, and re-released it as this "reborn" version.

Or at least that's the story as I remember it, feel free to correct me if wrong

Glad to see this game back on the AppStore. It was a pretty good game. Panic Arts Studios was a pretty good developer/publisher a couple years ago, then all their games started breaking due to updated OS and Panic Arts I thing just got frustrated and pulled most of their games. At least that's what I remember reading on their FB page......but anyway, this game was really good from what I remember.

I'll pick this up again. Hopefully this will be for the last time. Lol

if it got mfi support then its insta buy for me. from the trailer i can see that running and jumping while targeting on zombies can be a pain without mfi.
