PROS

  • Cute charm with great gameplay.
  • "Finish Him!"... Fatality.
  • Cartoon violence can be toned down.

CONS

  • Zombie variation is a bit sparse.

VERDICT

While trying to avoid the "Z is what you get when you mix X and Y", ZombieSmash! brings zombie slaying to a new creative level making this well worth trying.

Sure, you could keep throwing knights and goblins and other creepy crawlies in to pits of fire or feed them to your pet dragon, but why do that when you could be enjoying ZombieSmash! by German developer Gamedoctors? With all the charm of games like Plants vs. Zombies and physics inspired mayhem straight out of Home Alone, it's a game that keeps on giving well after you're done with the campaign.

In a bid to separate itself from other flick-based castle defense games, ZombieSmash! showcases its multi-touch controls early on. Flicking provides a convenient way to dispatch enemies and basic traps like boulders and mines will provide you with an adequate (if rudimentary) defense, but the real fun is in deploying the multitude of traps earned throughout the game. The physics are responsive and make the Sandbox mode worthy of purchasing all on its own.

ZombieSmash! features cartoonish artwork that's fun to watch and makes it easy to identify the different variety of enemies coming your way. Levels are clever and utilize restrictions like limited weaponry or changing perspectives to keep the game varied. The soundtrack is another highlight feature, but iTunes is still supported for background music.

Gamedoctors have pulled off something that's very hard to do right now and that's keeping 'zombies' interesting in games. Overused as they are, ZombieSmash! is about having fun your way with the tools available. A must try for all iPhone gamers.
