Way back when – well, June really – Apple launched a promotion on iTunes highlighting ‘The Best iPhone Games You’ve Never Played’.
Aside from being a tad presumptuous, this well-intentioned initiative seeks to boost sales of titles whose indubitable quality had gone unnoticed on release.
One such beneficiary of this very particular form of push notifications is Pro Zombie Soccer from publisher Chillingo and the understated Super Awesome Hyper-Dimensional Mega Team.
Combining the nation’s favourite pastime (draws with Montenegro, notwithstanding) and the ever-popular enemy / victim the zombie was always liable to prove a masterstroke, and Chillingo’s gruesome iPhone mash-up doesn’t disappoint.
Instead of flicking throughballs into the back of the net, your accursed hero Jax must fire rocketshots into the back of the flesh eaters’s heads as fast as (un)humanly possible.
Modojo effused over the manic nature of Pro Zombie Soccer, adding that “We also love the hand-drawn graphics, which sport cartoon style characters and environments. Finally, the game has an original heavy metal soundtrack that will pump you up while unleashing hell.”
After last night’s dreary performance at Wembley, you’ll be psyched to read that Pro Zombie Soccer is on sale at 59p.
Shoot on over to the App Store now and unleash a screamer. Ahem.
