N.Y.Zombies (Final Trailer) -- Finally blow away HORDES of zombies in 1st person!

Hi everyone. We have a new, final trailer we'd like to show people as we are nearing release in the next couple of weeks.




Icon


We would also love any comments/suggestions for the icon, considering the importance of it.


Brief description:

NYZ is a FUN, simple to play, yet DEEP 3d zombie shooter. In a nutshell, you will kill enemies and save survivors as you progress through a story mode that takes you across 20 diverse environments and through the the story of an average guy caught in New York when this "apocalypse" happens. Earn cash and buy and upgrade from over 20 specialized weapons and abilities. Equip any 6 weapons/abilities to take with you into battle, customizing the way you want to play. Use strategy to determine which weapons work best against which enemies and in which situations and environments. Manage your reload times and prioritize your targets. And of course, mow down the hordes of 40+ zombies coming at you at once.


Why are we NOT "just another zombie game?"

1. Unprecedented onscreen action for a 3d, first person iPhone game! Finally you can blow away MASSES of zombies, instead of just the 5-6 that you see in say, COD or Dead Strike (no offense to those games, we're just going a different route). But its not just mindless action. A layer of strategy will be key in how to use your weapons, manage their reload times, how to use them against which enemies, and in what environments.

2. Content and Polish. N.Y.Z. has over 20 COMPLETELY unique environments to play through in the story mode, with another unique, changing environment for the endless mode (with online leader board). We're not talking 20 stages over 4 unique environments, or a bunch of repeated levels that feel the same and are just boring. We're talking completely different levels. N.Y.Z. will be fully featured right on release -- we're not taking the ever too common approach that "we'll get it right in the future with updates."

3. Weapons and customization. "Doesn't everyone have this?" Yeah but N.Y.Z. actually requires a certain level of strategy to use weapons effectively and manage your 6 equipment slots. Additionally each weapon/ability is completely different, not just redundant versions of the same thing over and over again. Do you want to load up on health, armor and machete or chainsaw? Maybe you want to load up on heavy weapons like the rail gun and mini gun? Maybe you like to play defensively -- then go ahead and blanket the map with proximity mines and burn the zombies with molotovs and grenades. Its up to you!

There's obviously so much more, but I think I've already gone too far We would really appreciate any comments.

Thanks everyone.

- Jamie

Looks sick. Not sure if the actual game has that much slow motion in it. If it does, it might drive me crazy!

I beta tested this game and I can easily recommend buying it as soon as it comes out! It is really an awesome game! There is so much content in the game- story mode (20+ levels and 2 difficulty levels) and endless mode (with global leaderboards). The game is extremely polished and fun to play. Definitely one of the best games on the app store!

Looks great! Gameloft and their "Zombie Infection" have some competition on their hands.

The level speed is different from level to level. some are crazy fast, some are on the slow side, some are mixed!

Well itman, we figured the app store was littered with survival horror games (resident evils, dead strike, call of duty is more similar to survival horror then survival "action", and even the upcoming Zombie infection looks like another resident evil type game). We chose to do something more along the lines of L4D-ish.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there is another 3d, 1st person game for the iPhone PERIOD (zombies or not) that has the number of enemies we are pushing out?

I also want to remind everyone this is NOT a mindless shooter. I think we really have a good balance between casual players picking it up for the first time while offering depth for more experienced gamers.

Trust me, if anything, this game is NOT slow. At all. This game is INTENSE. I've been tapping and swiping all over the screen to try to reload a gun I wasn't using, pick out the next gun that fit the situation, and turn and shoot all the zombies that were about to kill me. It's insane, trust me.

This game is awesome... Definetly something original and extremely well done and fun to play. Anyone with any interest in survival games, tap-to-shoot games, or zombies should buy this game. Really.
