Terrorist Zombies Now Free!

Hey Guys,
You may have already seen me post about TZ before on here, but now I have made the game completely free with ad support. Please check it out and let me know what you think. Your feedback is much appreciated as I'm always looking for ways to improve the experience.

(If you have an iPad the HD version should be on the store within a week.)

Make slightly less racist ftw ...I just don't like the idea of Experimental neurotoxin crazed Arabs tying to destroy the last bastion of humanity! I guess that's a joke but...meh.

Visit an arabic country saok in their hospitality then maybe re-skin this with aliens or anything!

Please note that there is no mention of race or religion anywhere in the description or game itself, you are implying that they are arabs. Also last time I checked terrorists weren't good people no matter what their race, and neither are zombies. The point of the game is to kill BAD guys. Please play the game before you fully weigh in on its morals.

On another note TZ was just put in New & Noteworthy by Apple for Action and Arcade, so please if you still haven't checked it out, give it a play, after all it is FREE.

last time I check, not all terrorist wear the headscarf/turban or something .. but most Arabs does ..

you don't have to mentioned that they were Arabs you know ..

this could be a good game .. I could have download it since it's free .. but you have to be sensitive to this kind of thing you know .. after all, there are appr. 300 millions arabs and and 1.5 billion muslim in this world and they will immediately have the same reaction as mr_wexer .. imagine how much prospect lost there .. and it's your lost ..

on the side note, don't you think it's pretty boring if there is only one kind of enemy to kill .. and they don't look like zombie to me .. and none of them look like bad guy to me .. from the video, it seems to me the player are the bad guy because instead of going for a diplomatic path, he simply shots thousand of people with turban who just might trying to say hello to him haha ..

Again, the game is not intended to offend anyone(do a quick google image search for terrorist, I see a lot of guys in masks and camo). I understand some people may get offended, and thats fine because people are entitled to their own opinions. No matter what kind of game it is somebody out there is going to have a problem with it. If you have a problem with shooting games, zombie games, or anti-terrorist games then I'm afraid this isn't the game for you.

Also there are two more zombies in the game, again if you would have downloaded it and played it you could have seen them. There are also three cut scenes that tell a story, so the marine isn't arbitrarily shooting people, he is sent on a mission. He is helidropped into a battle, not a peaceful city with people who might be walking up to say hello(especially with bombs strapped to their chest ). And again, this isn't about shooting Arabs or Muslims, special care was even taken to ensure that the suicide bombing aspect was not due to religion, but a neurotoxin.

I can't re-iterate enough that the game is about shooting BAD Terrorist Zombies, much like in COD you shoot BAD Nazi Zombies(I suppose it's wrong to shoot Nazi's too??). If possible I would like people who actually download and play the game to give their impressions, so we can move past the morality debate, have some fun, and provide some feedback. If it offends you, don't play it.

I am always a supporter of indie dev (albeit nobody really knows about this, but I bought a bunch of indie games just to show my support towards this community) ..

my comment is based on that basis, but maybe my sarcasm doesn't really work there (english is not my first language) .. but I do hope that you see my comments as a support instead of an offense .. yes, you can tell again and again that this is not about Arabs and Muslims, but imo, people who saw this game at first glance will see that this game is about killing Arabs .. and I think you aware that not every iOS gamers came to TA forum and read this topic, don't you agree?

FYI, I do love shooting games and zombie games .. I have all Battle Bear games for example which I think have similar gameplay as yours .. but you see, I don't see people complaining about that game on moral basis, because the enemies in that game for example does have the BAD GUY and ZOMBIE quality on them, thus they deserve to be shoot to death ..

regardless, I do agree with you that there is no point to debate this further .. all that I'm telling you, you can get a wider audiences if you can re-skin the terrorist further, or add more variety into it (eg: people with turban, people wearing coat, people wearing t-shirt, naked people etc) .. and maybe, since you did mention that there are few other type of enemies, maybe you should include that in the appstore screenshots and include that in your demo video .. because right now, all I can see from the demo and screenshots is an American soldier shooting Arabs ..

I don't know, it just a suggestion, it's up to you ..

I don't have any lost here, like I say, I have the money and I could have bought the games, and while it's free, why not? but I am not going to download this .. and from what I can see, there are at least one people is in the same stands as me in in this topic ..

this would be my last post in this topic .. thank you ..

Since no one has posted impressions on a free game(???) I thought I'd be the first.

The graphics could use a little work, but I understand the limitations with how much action there is. I really love the gameplay, and the airstrikes and artillery are awesome. My only suggestion would be to let me jump in the action quicker at the start of a new game instead of always starting on Round 1.

Other than that though, I think you have made an extremely entertaining game, especially for the price . Keep up the good work, hopefully other people will post some of their thoughts as they are missing out by not trying it.
