It's something we've all thought about -- the zombie apocalypse. Hordes of undead, clawing their way out of the ground, looking for some savory brains to snack on. There's been many a game about it, and Zombieville USA looks to continue that proud lineage of "don't let zombies eat you" games on Android.
The gameplay is simple enough: avoid zombies and use either melee attacks or firearms to remove them from your path. Each kill (but how can you kill that which is already dead?) earns you a couple of bucks to use on health, guns, or melee weapons once you've cleared a level.
There's also houses to loot (yes, loot) along the way. Simply tap on a door and your character will hop into a house and you'll be either rewarded with ammunition or cash. The houses serve a dual (and awesome) purpose, though. Not only are you rewarded by going into a house, you're also off the streets, meaning zombies just walk on by. It's a great strategic tool to help you plan an ambush or get out of the line of
There's also seven different characters for you to choose from, which gives you a little wiggle room depending on your play style. There's guys like the survivor, who is your run-of-the-mill zombie slaying guy. He planned ahead but doesn't have any special powers. There's also a SWAT team member, a ninja, and a doctor, to name a few. All of them have different strengths and weaknesses.
Zombieville USA is a pretty hilarious game with a kickin' soundtrack, to boot. It runs well, and despite the title screen being totally messed up on my EVO 3D, the game itself fills out the screen correctly once you've started playing. Zombieville USA is $1.99 in the Android Market if you're looking to put some zombies back in their place (which is in the ground, duh).
Download links and more screenshots are after the break.
