Z is for Zombie 2.0 - Out Now!!

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to let everyone know that Z is for Zombie 2.0 has been completed, and is currently in review. This was a huge update / rewrite of the game, and has a ton of major new features, listed below. I think I addressed most complaints about the game in this update. I'm very happy with it. There's a youtube video below showing off the new weapons, high scores / stats pages.

Subscribe to this thread to receive a notice of when it's out, or follow me on twitter. I'll also be posting a few promo codes once it's released.

I'm wrapping up the Lite version this weekend, it'll have most of the new features below, but some will stay full version only.

Any questions or comments, please post below!

New Features:
  • Progress Saving
  • High Scores
  • Statistics
  • Zombies have hit points
  • New Weapons! Pistol / Shotgun / PipeBomb
  • Massive performance improvements
  • New onscreen controls (joystick)
  • Smoother Accelerometer Controls
  • Unlockable Freeplay (go back and beat your score)
  • New Game Over Screens
  • Finally, a ton of bug fixes

Thanks everyone, a lot of work went into making this game run really smooth on the older devices. At one point I had 4 pages of bugs / tweaks I had to fix, but it's running really well. All of the new features really flesh the game out too.
