Independent game and app developer Selectsoft has announced the release of Zombie Bird: Attack of the Flying Vampire Shark Monsters, a new flying game for iPhone and Android. Featuring easy controls, amusing visuals and addictive gameplay, Zombie Bird is a “tap and fly” game that features a little zombie bird named Lars on a quest to collect coins and avoid being eaten by monsters.
Players tap their phones to steer Lil’ Lars, an undead piece of poultry looking to fly as far as he can without being chomped by vampire sharks or sliced by scythes. Quick reflexes are needed to help Lars as he navigates the unfriendly skies in search of shiny coins. A familiar “tap and fly” mechanic is simple enough for even kids to grasp and makes the game deceptively easy to pick up, but addictively hard to master. Funny, hand-drawn graphics invite players into the spooky world of Lars, while keeping the chills in family-friendly territory.
While inviting comparisons to such so-called “distance” games as Tiny Wings, “side-scrollers” such as Jetpack Joyride, and flying games such as Line Birds, Zombie Bird offers a unique combination of precision controls, creative obstacles, and amusing visuals for a genreless combination of arcade action and pure flight. Unlike other distance and flight apps, Zombie Bird also features “screen wrap” effects, allowing a player to quickly dive off the bottom of the screen and instantly “wrap” to the top of the screen. It’s a fun effect that adds another level of strategy and timing to the game.
