Forget about your lives, forget about the next episode of The Walking Dead and prepare to lead your own army of zombies to the top of the leaderboards in Battle of Zombies, the insanely addictive strategy game from OKApp! Oh, and forget about Clash of Clans, this game is the new game you need to play!
The Clash of Clans reference was not an accidental one: Battle of Zombies clearly draws its inspiration from Supercell’s successful title, but adds a bit of zombies to make things a lot more appealing for everybody. And the success is guaranteed!
A base building game combined with strategy elements, Battle of Zombies gives you a post-apocalyptic area to turn into your own zombie headquarters. You place Toxin generators and other gooey-looking thingies in your base, add some Cannons for defense, a hero’s den for a mega-zombie and you start upgrading everything over and over again until you can’t upgrade anymore (although it’s going to be a looong time until that happens, if ever!).
Since resources are scarce and the fun factor is gone if you don’t go bashing other zombie heads, you can hunt for resources and glory by sending your troops from the Crypt straight into the bases of other players. There’s also a single player campaign that challenges you to beat a ton of increasingly difficult bases, so you won’t get bored anytime soon.
Battle of Zombie for iOS doesn’t revolutionize the genre and doesn’t bring anything new into play if we are to compare it with the landmark Clash of Clans. However, the fresh approach of OKApp and the nice, vibrant colors of the game, make it a great choice for those who are looking for an alternative or a brand new game to play. Waiting times are also very decent and it will take a while before you’re stuck on waiting for days for an upgrade to happen and there is ongoing development for the game, with new features promised, like Clan Wars, so the future looks bright for this great game!
So why not give it a try? Head over to the App Store and download Battle of Zombies for iPhone or iPad right away! It’s free!
