ARDrone Sim: Zombies

Hey guys, I've been busy working on a spin off of my ARDrone Sim which is available for iOS & Android.

Basically you control a radio controlled quadcopter fitted with a machine gun & have to gun down zombies from the streets. It will be released for iOS, Android & OUYA. Here's a quick video I recorded from the OUYA:

Looks great how is it controlled? How big is the city?

Thanks, it's controlled via 2 virtual joysticks or tilt & a joystick. The city isn't massive, it's about 4 blocks in either direction.

Here's some footage from the iOS version. I'll be needing some testers through test flight in about a weeks time.

Looks good, I didn't get to see all the video though, my wifi seems to be having one of those days...

I'm curious as to how the controls work? The two virtual sticks seem to control flight, how are you firing?

Thanks. To fire you double tap either joystick. Double tap and keep your finger down for continuous firing, which allows you to control the flight as you would normally. Sounds more complicated than it actually is, but once you get the hang of it, it works pretty well.

Looking good. Is it going to be an endless wave of zombies or mission based?

Happy to assist with some beta testing if you need me. Let me know and I can pm you my details
