Zombieville USA: more weapons, more controls, more lives

Mika Mobile has released an update to their highly rated zombie slaying game.

Zombieville USA version 1.4 new features include melee weapons, an alternative control scheme, and an option for extra lives.

Zombieville USA is one of my favorite iPhone/iPod touch games. Though the gameplay is relatively simple (kill zombies and  kill them good) it does require you to manage your cash and ammo carefully as the game progresses.

When the game was first released it had 15 upgradeable weapons: a selection of handguns, machine guns, shotguns, rocket launchers and gas-powered weapons. The new version adds more to the arsenal: melee weapons. Melee weapons don’t do a lot of damage but are useful in knocking zombies away, especially those that pops up suddenly. There’s also a chance at dealing a critical damage, killing a zombie with one blow.

At the start of the game, the scowling zombie hunter is now equipped with a handgun and a baseball bat. The bat can be upgraded to a sledgehammer for $650. I’m guessing the upgrade after that would be the katana as mentioned on Zombieville USA’s App Store page.

The two other new features can be accessed through the Options menu: extra lives and an alternate control scheme. Players can now choose to have 1, 3, or 5 lives. The extra lives will help give the game longevity and more mayhem. The new control scheme moves the left and right movement controls to the left side of the screen while on the right side of the screen there are the two buttons for attack: red button for the original set of weapons, green button for melee weapons.

These are welcome new features to an excellent game and Mika Mobile promises more new stuff coming.

I’ll be doing a short review of Zombieville USA real soon. Please watch out for it.
