Dawn of the Dead iPhone (DOTD) brings the timeless zombie horror classic to the iPhone and iPod Touch for the first time.

After fleeing in terror from a suburban neighborhood, players find themselves stranded at the entrance of the Crossroads Mall.

This looks to be an instant buy. I'd really like to know why bigger devs aren't looking into online leaderboard/integration. Oh well still DOTD will inevitably be on my device hopefully Jan. 19th!

This looks like it could be the Alive 4 Ever killer if done right... Really hoping it comes out well, it looks like a fun game.

Hoping for a multiplayer update. Nothing makes a zombie apocalypse more fun than having a friend help you take down the leigons of undead.

Played it a bit. Looks cool but the dual stick is slightly different to iDracula and such. The left is to move and the right is to choose what direction to aim, but it's not continous shooting or hitting.

First level was quite big and fun. Had to find a key to then get inside the mall. Didn't find it too challenging
