What's New in Version 1.2.4

Minor bug fixes.

Audio gaming fans will find a link to our our next audio game 'Audio Defence: Zombie Arena'

Audio Defence: Zombie Arena is the quicker, dirtier successor to Papa Sangre and Papa Sangre II. It's a new kind of zombie shooter game for iPhone and iPad. Surrounded by zombies you cannot see, you must rely on what you hear to aim and fire. It’s all powered by binaural sound and Weird Immersion. We've kept the horror and immersion but chucked almost everything else out in favour of SPEED AND FURY so you can just pick up and play.

The soul of one you love has become lost somewhere in the nightmarish realm of Papa Sangre, the cruel Mexican god of death. It's your job to find your way through Papa's fiendish realm to rescue them. Though you have the help of an etherial guide, your mission won't be easy. Expect to die many times to Papa's minions.

I've tried to like this game so many times

Biggest problem? There aren't settings. BALANCE. Left/Right control. Maybe my ears are lopsided, but "front" to me isn't front in the game. Similarly, PHASE. Allow me to change the amount of difference between back and front sound timbres. Finally, TURN. Turn wheel sensitivity. How the $@¥# have they never added these?!

Ive owned it since it came out. Really fun idea, but that's as far as it'll get you. Gameplay isn't fun. Repetitive.

I second uncoolcentral

I too want to like this game so badly... But cannot. It took me a while to realize that the turning wheel is unbelievably sensitive. I'd move it say 10 degrees and the sounds would be completely elsewhere! Without markers, explanation, or indication the player will start by assuming the wheel is tied to your actual orientation and rotates on a 1*:1* basis. Lack of sensitivity settings is difficult to deal with.
