Sparkplug Game’s New App, Plight of The Zombie, puts the player in the shoes of Craig, an innocent couch potato turned zombie on his quest to satisfy his hunger . A humorous take on the traditional zombie horror sub-genre, the game depicts the familiar monsters as innocent creatures in search of food. An amusing intro sets the stage with subsequent levels revolving around Craig’s consumption of brains for points and conversion of humans into fellow ghouls.
Played via the users fingertip as a guide, the game is about stealth action. Most of the human characters carry weapons and have a line of sight. That said, it’s extremely important to run into humans in order to make friends/victims. After increasingly challenging obstacles, the player is forced to overrun human barricades with the collected “converts”. When all of the humans change into zombies, the player wins the level.
As an easy strategy game, Plight of the Zombie certainly delivers. The game play is challenging yet not overly hard, the mechanics are user friendly and has replay value. It’s currently available on the App Store for $2.99. Happy Feasting!
