Whether or not you’re a big fan of horror films and Zombie flicks, it’s hard to deny that killing Zombies when playing games is simple, yet addictive fun. With blockbuster releases like Dying Light available on the PS4 and Xbox One, it’s understandable you might have become addicted to slaying the walking dead. As such, we’ve put together a list of the Top 10 Zombie Games for Android, and we’ve tried to put together a good variety, too.
Zombie Smasher is a casual title that will appeal to those looking for something fun, yet also simple to play. In essence, you just need to keep tapping on the zombies here in order to kill them. It’s frantic, addictive fun that many of you will enjoy. There’s a story mode, a survival mode as well as a timed mode and you can level up giving you some progression as well. Plus, this is a nice change of pace from the hyper-real gore of modern titles these days.
The Walking Dead: Season One
How could we have a list of Zombie games and not include The Walking Dead? Not to be confused with the hit AMC show, this is based off of the original comic books, and it’s a sort of interactive story where your decisions are your weapons and tools. A gripping story throughout, The Walking Dead is an excellent game to play on tablets and it should keep you entertained for hours.
One of my personal favorites, Age of Zombies is from the same studio that gave us Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. It’s an arcade style classic and it’s ridiculous fun. The controls are fairly straightforward, the levels are varied and there’s tons of silly cliches involved including time travel, of course. A polished, well put together Zombie game that doesn’t take itself too seriously, Age of Zombies is great.
If being behind the wheel is more your thing, then Zombie Highway is the game you should try out. Plus, it’ll recreate that feeling of driving through an apocalypse too, which is always nice. Zombie Highway asks you to keep on driving for as long as you can while surviving some surprisingly nimble Zombies. It’s free to download and a nice addition for those looking for something on four wheels to go with their gratuitous zombie violence.
Plants vs Zombies 2
It’s hard to have a list without this little gem either, Plants vs Zombies might be getting a little tired for some, but it’s still a nice addition to this list. After all, it’s one of the few Zombie games that actually involves some sort of strategy and it’s good fun, too. It’s free to download, but then EA have lots of in-app purchases waiting for you, so just keep that in mind.
DEAD TRIGGER 2
Okay, so you want something with more of a console vibe to it, then DEAD TRIGGER 2 is your poison of choice. With some of the best FPS action on Android, DEAD TRIGGER 2 has a massive array of weapons, different challenge modes and it’s also geared up to encourage regular playing every day. The developers often add new levels and different events, so there’s always something going on. A fun game that’s a must for first-person shooter fans.
Into the Dead
For fans of the survival aspect of the whole Zombie thing, Into the Dead is a game that focuses on staying alive, rather than the fun violence stuff. Into the Dead does offer you a number of weapons to survive with, but the main aim of the game is to just survive, and to do so for as long as possible. With stunning graphics and moody visuals this is a good option for fans of Resident Evil games and such.
Fate – Story Game Collection
We reviewed this back when it was known as 60 Days Zombie Story Game. Now, it’s a collection of stories with the Zombie game included. For those fans of reading a story, rather than seeing more moving pictures, this is a great way of experiencing the trials of such an event and it’s gripping throughout. A fun game for those looking for something a little different, this is worth trying out.
Zombies and Guns
Zombies and Guns go together like peanut butter and jelly, but throw them into the Wild West with funky cartoon graphics and addictive gameplay and you have something special on your hands. We reviewed this some time ago, and it’s one of the more lighthearted and entertaining zombie games out there.
The Walking Dead: Season Two
Okay, okay you might be wondering why the second season is here as well as the first. Well, that’s because The Walking Dead is an incredibly moving story and this season is all about Clementine. If you’ve just finished Season One and looking for something else to play, start playing this, immediately. Decisions and choices you took in the previous episodes carry over here and it’s an excellent follow-up to one of the best Zombie games ever made.
