Heal The Zombie is Out ( Evolution of Matching Game )

********************
Halloween Sale
$0.99
********************

Story

In an experiment, Mr. Zombie drank an unknown medicine and started to turn into a zombie. He was cursed that if he dies, he will become a real zombie. Fortunately he found that the power from crystals can save his life. Now Mr. Zombie is dying. Extract power from the crystals to heal him.

Game Play

Unlike ordinary 1-by-1 moving-gems puzzles, Heal the Zombie brings you a new "Rubik's Cube" style row-shift plus orientation changing control experience. It is optimized for touch screen and 4-orientation gaming.

Extract power from crystals by forming squares and circles to remove them. Chain your score in the time limit, and rotate your iPhone for combos.

When magic power is charged up, magic scrolls can be used for special effects.

Count-down crystals will appear in higher levels. Clean them up before they turn into stones. Stones can only be removed by circling them or using magic scroll.

The game consists of 2 modes, namely time attack mode and arcade mode, which is exclusive on the iPhone version.

It definitely is a good-looking game. I'll definitely have to get used to this kind of matching. At first I was only making squares/rectangles and it wasn't getting me very far until I realized I could make circles, which center tile becomes a wild card to be matched with any other. This also heals the zombie much more and it's worth more points, but it can be tougher to pull off when under time pressure. Those count-down crystals can be pretty nasty as it doesn't take them long to turn into useless stones.

The spells which can be quite helpful charge up in order as you clear the crystals, so you don't have to worry about matching certain kinds to get a spell. They're definitely needed, too, as it'll be tough to get into higher levels in medium and hard. I've only managed to get up to level 5 in normal arcade mode. The zombie's health starts to deplete quite rapidly then.

Overall, I'm quite liking it. I really enjoy the music, although it can be a bit repetitive.


Improvement suggestions:
- please give me the option to turn off the zombie sound (without turning off all other sound effects). It gets a bit annoying when he keeps going "eh!" every second or so once he starts to rapidly lose health
- it would be nice if only highest score of a player was displayed on the leaderboards. obviously, there are not many scores there yet, but quite a few scores from the same people have been uploaded already. It just creates clutter
