Best Zombie Games For iOS And Android
Parade of the dead, now available on mobile and tablet devices worldwide.
Zombies. They're everywhere. Movies, TV shows (Walking Dead, anyone?) and, of course, video games. Everywhere you look on the App Store (or Google Play), you'll see dozens upon dozens of offerings where you can take out the living dead, sometimes with weapons, and other times a bit more creatively. At the end of the day, though, which ones are the best for you to play?
We've got a few recommendations that will tide over your zombie fix during the summer season, so sit back and enjoy. BRAINS!
Dead Trigger 2 (free)
While Call of Duty: Zombies is certainly no slouch, Madfinger Games' Dead Trigger 2 is as good as zombie shooters get on mobile devices. You'll load up on a variety of weapons, then unleash hell on various varieties of zombies, from slow, quick suckers to large tank-like creatures. With the game's free-to-play structure, you can pay as you go, slowly progressing through this zombie adventure or becoming an unstoppable machine. It's nice to have the option.
Zombie Gunship ($.99)
Even though it's one of the older releases on the market, Zombie Gunship is still one of the best zombie-blasting games around. With its elaborate weapon set-up, its vast maps, and the ability to upgrade to some bad-ass weaponry, Zombie Gunship also serves as a worthwhile stress reliever after a tough day of work. Take that, you undead heathens!
Gunner Z (free)
If you prefer to blast hordes of zombies on the ground, then get behind the wheel of BitMonster's awesome Zombie Gunship. In this game, you'll make your way through a city infested with zombies, using a number of vehicles and weapons to mow them down with. Sometimes the going will get rough, with surveillance drones and larger creatures getting in the way, but it's all the more satisfying when you take them down with a rocket launcher. "Say hello to our little friend!"

Zombie Puzzle Panic (free)
If you prefer a joyful zombie experience that the whole family can indulge in (yes, kids can be zombie fans too), then Noodlecake's Zombie Puzzle Panic is an ideal choice. The game takes the usual match-three puzzle format and cleverly surrounds it around the world of zombies, forcing you to act quickly to take down strays, protect bodyguards, and utilize power-ups to clear the board quicker. In addition, the competitive leaderboards allow you to take on friends for the best score possible. This is Panic well worth celebrating.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 (free)
Last but certainly not least, we'd be fools not to recommend PopCap Games' incredibly addictive Plants vs. Zombies 2. This sequel takes the free-to-play formula that most games possess and makes it a worthwhile system, while at the same time introducing a fresh time-travel element that keeps each round of plant-and-zombie battling more fun than ever before. Utilize new power-ups and fight the horde the best that you can. Who knows - you just might live long enough to enjoy the greatest sandwich in the world. (Maybe.)
