Just Updated

Resurrection Edition Update is here! Watch the new trailer!

We are happy to announce that the "Resurrection Edition" Update is now available. It brings bug fixes and new features such as:

The plane now features a stylish first-class upper deck and a cargo hold for moving about in. Both floors feature a workable elevator connecting each floor making moving about the interior of the large plane quick and easy. The plane also lands realistically at an airport if the player can hold off the onslaught of the zombies long enough.

The plane modes now feature music. More sounds have been added to the interior level.

As part of the overall goal of overhauling the game to be better and more responsive, the controls of the aircraft in the plane modes now no longer require multiple inputs to shake the zombies off the plane keeping the focus on the player moving the main plane rather than individual parts for ease of play and increased fun. The combo reward system has been tuned to be more rewarding for the player allowing the gameplay to be more fluid by giving the player boosts to plane speed, making the zombies fall off the plane more easily as the plane flies close above the water while the boost is active etc. resulting in more rewarding gameplay.

Zombies now roam the levels in a more realistic way, moving to the floor the player is on within the large jet

Zombies no longer move in the floor
Zombies no longer unshakable from plane in plane mode
UI bug fixes
...many more fixes and improvements

About This Game
