148apps: "For fans of the side-scrolling shoot-em-up, Apocalypse Max delivers quite a lot in a fairly compact package. Requiring a fair amount of concentration, but never overly harsh, it wants you to be a survivor and will equip you with the appropriate weapon to do so." TheVerge: "With the zombie shooter, Wandake Game Studios reminds us why we love killing undead, by doing what everyone else has done. Just better." TouchArcade: "We're digging Max. The production elements are off the wall good, which helps. But more importantly, we're clicking with its action. Solid pacing keeps you moving, while sharp level design keeps introducing interesting choices."

Must have

I absolutely love this game👍👍👍👌👏🎮👾. Loving the new characters too. The animation and art style is awesome. level design is fantastic. The game not only looks good , it plays and sounds good. If I had to compare to to anything it would be SHANK, but with better upgradable weapons , different playable characters , better visuals and oh yes ...ZOMBIES how awesome is that. It's awesome and I can't wait for part two to come out. I hope more weapons upgrades come out and an upgradable knife would be good too. Thank you developers for creating this. I wish this was available on the App Store for the iMac.

My top 3 fav!!!

Love this game and i really hope they come out with more levels soon cuz I've been playing the same ones over an over again. Also i really like that you can earn money easily, not like other games that make it impossible to earn money so you can buy weapons an upgrade and that is one of the reasons this game is in my top 3!! One thing that i hope you fix is when i slash with my knife to kill to the left it doesn't always work so it lags and wont recognize the command to slash left?! Other than that this game rocks!!!!!!! ={ )

One Of The Best iOS Platformers

The title says it all. Lots of action and great detail and shine to the production, and on top of that the game is fun! If you are good at this type of game then you may not need to do an IAP to max out the guns, but it's there if you are interested, and the purchasable characters are kind if cool as well and add a little twist.

Bottom line: very few other platformer games on iOS are this good.
