"The best part of this game is the originality in the gameplay."
"This is a totally addictive and fun game.... and then you get the sniper rifle. After that just clear your schedule because you'll be popping zombie heads all weekend. Well done."

Touch Arcade Forum Reviews:
"Basically it is an excellent blend of strategy and casual shooting; definitely recommended."

"This game is indeed a solid and different release on the iphone/ipod platform. the levels are designed well and are somewhat like puzzles in and of themselves, the gameplay is good, and the music is also nice."
What's New in Version 1.1.5
Bug fix to prevent skipping to the end of a level
Changes to Russian character dialect
Added an option to disable vibration
I like the new update.
One of the few games I've bought. It would be nice to have the green view show the actual line of sight when an object is in the way. Multiplayer would be great of course.
Update: I am disappointed that the developer of the game seems to have abandoned it. Year and a half. Barricades don't line up properly, line of sight should disappear when objects are in the way. I am guessing sales were disappointing. Too bad, had this been updated often it would probably sell well.
Difficult but entertaining
Update: played through the entire thing, and here are the suggestions:
Upgrade range of machine gunners or lower price or double damage or add use of barricades to gunner's survival mode
Halve damage of sniper or increase price
Do something intuitive with the flame trooper as you can beat its survival mode with just one of them.
Quest mode is fine.
I just feel like I missed on this one. Nothing big, other than the 'double damage' upgrade seems to be broken. Maybe it's because I hit it at the precise moment the zombies get more powerful... Dunno.
Difficult initially, but satisfying
This game starts out with what may be high difficulty for the new player, because the zombies actually try to avoid your fire. There is some strategy involved in positioning your soldiers, and you have to aim their fire. Once one understands how the dynamics work, the game is fun and satisfying....
