Zombies HD by Rocking Pocket Games

Zombies The Last Stand has been ported to iPad/iPad 2 and renamed to simply Zombies HD.

Some features:
- Upgradeable weapons
- 3 scenes with 25 waves each
- Realtime full scene shadow mapping
- Dynamic lights
- Parallax mapping (displacement mapping per pixel)
- Progressively harder levels with different kinds of zombies, including jumpers, tanks, poppers, pigmy, and ghost zombies





Here are large versions of the screenshots.












I've also released a technical demo video showing the game on iPad 1 and iPad 2. It was really made to push the limits of the iPad 2!

Any reviews for this? or impressions?

I have only read negative comments. It looks good and really want to know what it is like.

Zombies HD is now the #1 Adventure game for iPad! I'm just happy that people are getting to see the game. TA doesn't seem to cover any of my apps.

They need to cover this, if not for the game play then for the graphics and technical achievements.


This is an absolute gem and is never coming off my iPad 2.

I did however find a bug. When I have my gun fully loaded I can still reload the gun, and the ammo count drops by 6 each time. But those 6 rounds are just getting thrown away, and not being loaded into the gun.

It has to do with the direction the flashlight is aiming. It's usually parallel to the ground which won't reflect any light. If you look down you'll light up the ground more and see shadows on the ground from the flashlight.
