Well, we survived Monday. Unless you're a ghost or a zombie while you're reading this, in which case I'm sorry, but I'll try and tailor the site to your undead needs from now on. Wait a minute, the undead. That gives me an idea.

There are loads of zombie games on the App Store in one shape or another, so it's probably time that someone wrote about which three are the best. I think you'll agree that that makes perfect sense. And if you don't agree, well that's your problem, not mine.

You can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them, and if you've got your own suggestions then feel free to add them in the comments at the bottom of the article. Do try and say more than 'braaaaaaaaains' though, please.

Organ Trail: Director's Cut

A classic of the genre that's been around for a good few years now. But it's pixel chunk graphics and intriguing gameplay still mean it's close to the top of the pack. It's basically a parody of educational videogame The Oregon Trail, but rather than trying to make it across America, you're trying to make it across America while not getting eaten by zombies. You can still get dyssentry and die though.

Fighting Fantasy: Blood of the Zombies

Sick of shooting zombies? Well how about reading about them instead. And then rolling some dice. To see if you shoot them or not.

Into The Dead

Yup, it's an auto-runner, but it's one that captures the terror of legging it from a bunch of the undead pretty damn well. Plus sometimes it gives you a chainsaw and lets you hack the froth-mouthed horrors to death, which is pretty nice of it. Tense and tight in equal measures, this is the perfect antidote to all the cutesy runners on the App Store.
