Recommended by TIME Magazine as one of the 25 best apps to own on iPad. First ever 9/10 for a mobile game in the History of iconic EDGE magazine.

". . . As The Universe Ends, The Last Human On Earth Continues To Prolong The Oblivion Of Its Race . . ."

ZiGGURAT is the end of a much longer story -- a story which ends with The Last Human On Earth standing atop a stratosphere-high stone pyramid, wielding a laser rifle against an endless wave of relentless alien freaks.

Where did the alien freaks come from? How did our hero get to the top of this pyramid? We have no time to think about such things: there is only time to shoot.

The situation is hopeless: this is the end. Your only goal is to enjoy taking out as many of those alien freaks as you can.

As the aliens jump up and down in their approach to our hero, their eyeballs grow and shrink. As you hold your finger on the screen to steady your aim, your gun’s blast grows and shrinks. Hit larger enemy eyeballs with larger bullets to initiate larger explosions and chain reactions. Shoot as much as you want -- you’ll probably never get enough, and that’s okay, because the enemies will literally never stop coming.

With controls that bring together the best of modern shooting nuances and classic gaming challenge, Action Button Entertainment's ZiGGURAT is a new kind of addiction for iOS.


✔ Innovative “Precision Mode” controls: Precision Mode allows the player to control the game entirely with horizontal sweeps on the bottom edge of the screen, meaning your finger doesn’t ever need to cover the on-screen action.

✔ “Slingshot Mode” controls: For players who prefer slinging and flinging.

✔ Endless . . . with an ending: Watch the world end in the background as you play (though don’t get too distracted).

✔ Authentic retro: With sixteen-bit graphics (parallax scrolling!), eight-bit sounds (chiptunes!), and immortal controls and feel, ZiGGURAT is an homage to the games that got us started wanting to make games.

✔ Leaderboards, achievements, Facebook, and Twitter: Everyone in the world or your workplace can and will know how many alien freaks you killed before you died. And don't you want to be at the top of the "Total Shots Fired" worldwide ZiGGURAT leaderboard?

✔ Real-Life Rewards: earn physical goodies for your in-game achievements. Including underwear and socks!

✔ Deep stat-tracking: ZiGGURAT keeps track of your performance and presents your cumulative multi-session scores in a clean single-screen format for efficient bragging.

✔ Amazing music: If the theme music from ZiGGURAT doesn’t impress you, you are not invited to my birthday party (it will be playing on loop at my birthday party).
