It looks cool. I think it would be cool to make an options to move the controls (buttons). i.e. have all 4 on the bottom rather then the 4 corners. I know for me......the way I hold my iphone I would prefer them all on the bottom. Just a thought

Billy Frontier had an almost identical control method for the 'Duel' sections of the game. Still, you can never have enough Zombie games in my opinion.

@K.D!

Thanks for the heads up. We weren't aware that another game had a similar control scheme for so long. I feel with the multiple targets and overlapping sequences where one button push can hit multiple targets, it opens up more possibilities.

@Spiral75

We haven't thought about moving the buttons to a row on the bottom. Interesting thought, maybe it can be an alternate control scheme.

Ummm...maybe a no blood option? I'm a type of person who doesn't really like blood in games and I'm sure there are many people just like me. To appeal to the whole audience, I think a "no blood" option would be nice. Other than that, this game looks like something I would look into getting.

Good job on the game guys

Interesting suggestion! We may end up having to implement this anyway depending if the current version gets through Apple approval or not.
