Zombo Buster Rising started life out as a mini game you find on miniclip many years ago, now made the jump to mobile. You are a survivor defending your base from wave upon wave of zombies, with each kill you make you get gold. That gold is then put towards upgrading your weapon or those of your two team mates of a sniper and RPG launcher. With each completed mission you give diamonds which are used to increase other powers in a table layout.

The does auto shoot and this is a blessing if you using a small phone like iphone 4 due to how small the zombies are even on large screen like a iphone 6s+ they are tiny.

Of course with it being free you have timers of when you can use your team mates which can be skipped with either gold or watch adverts. plus you do get the usual splash adverts which can be turned off if you in plane mode, there no buy option to turn them off.

This is a simply little shooter you likely to play on the bus or train, but after a while it maybe become stale due to the grinding as you process through the levels.

Ok I played it through the first 10 levels.

Unfortunately I rate it at 3 stars. While I actually like the core game the timers are outrageous and ruin it for me. On top of this the in game store only has consumable IAP. I wrote to the devs and asked if they could add an IAP to get rid of the timers and an IAP to double the currency. I'd pay. The other parts of the game around this I actually like. Which is why I gave it 3 stars. Let's see what the devs say. The timers are every single level. You don't get a break. It's every single level.

I attempted to contact the developers. Upon tapping app support I was greeted with an error 404 page not found lol.

Argh. Well maybe they will read my appstore review where I laid it all out.

Yeah I noticed we do like ALoT of the same stuff .
I made it to level 10 and hit that wall in which you have to watch videos to get your friends back to help on each level f not you gotta grind tons of money to slowly beat each level. Now that my service provider offers unlimited data I've been watching more videos but for those who don't have the data to watch them then I would probably skip this unless you like a huge grind .

Overall I like the game . I'm going to continue to play even though I really don't like the idea of basically watching videos to play. I also give it 3 stars because I noticed all you have to do is start the game and it plays itself out. You don't have to aim at all but just to aim to start. Then sit back and watch. After the match is over you upgrade , watch a video to get a friend back, start up and repeat.

Has potential but for now I would pass for most
