[prMac.com] Hoffman Estates, Illinois – High Voltage Software is honoring the brave soldiers fighting against the apocalypse this Memorial Day weekend with a price reduction to just $0.99 on its hit game Zoombies: Animales de la Muerte! The castle-defense-genre game has been lauded by critics for its action-heavy undead fun and novel gameplay style, which lets users trace the path of their weapon of choice, including Aztec hatchets, guacamole, and even piatas.
Since the Mexican zombie apocalypse began on iOS earlier this month, players have heroically put over 18.6 million Zoombies out of their misery, and cured as many as 150,000 additional undead. While the numeros speak for themselves, developer and end-of-the-world experto Eric Nofsinger is sounding the trumpet for brave new soldiers to enlist against the terrifying Zoombie hordes.
“Over 350,000 animales have been liberated from the affected zoo, and our zookeeper Don Eduardo is muy contento about that,” says Nofsinger. “But we’ve made the strategic decision to put the app on sale this Memorial Day to recruit additional anti-Zoombie warriors to the front lines.”
The game provides nonstop zombie action through 45 levels and 225 challenging Sugar Skull Missions that require timing, strategy and precision. Players have the option to battle as either Marco or Maria, two deceptively deadly estudiantes who pack a mortal punch, while trying to rescue as many animals as possible before their brains are eaten by the Zoombies. Adding to the fun, golden pesos can be exchanged for Especiales upgrades, weapons, and costumes.
The game, available as a universal app for iPhone, iPad, and iPad Touch, mixes cartoon artistry with gory details, and has been awarded fantastic reviews from gamers on the iTunes App Store, where it averages 4.5 stars, as well as purple hearts from IGN, Pocket Gamer UK, and Gamezebo.
