Hands-on with Zombie Commando, the undead-immolating team blaster

By , on July 18, 2014

Upon seeing the title Zombie Commando appear in my App Store listings, a little part of me immediately wanted to switch off my iPhone, dive under a duvet, and sleep until this whole zombie craze finally blows over. 

However, having ignored my kneejerk cynicism and download the game regardless, I can report that Zombie Commando is a little more interesting than its name might suggest.

Rather than taking control of a lone warrior, you get direct a team of up to eight characters around an undead-infested world, blasting your way to freedom with machine guns and flame-throwers, and cracking skull with baseball bats.

The controls are super streamlined, with one virtual sticks guiding your entire team. Your squaddies fire automatically, leaving you to focus on aiming the weapons and keeping the unit out of harm's way.

You can download Zombie Commando for £1.49 / $1.99 right now. Check out the video below to see what happens to a zombie when you torch it with a flame-thrower (SPOILER: it's the same thing that happens to everything else).
