Halfbrick Studios, the creators behind Fruit Ninja, Monster Dash, and Jetpack Joyride, plus more, has announced that their zombie shooter Age of Zombies, which was originally released in 2010, will be receiving some experiments from the Zombie Enthusiast Action Squad at Halfbrick. They will be releasing six updates onto the game, which will be released in the coming months, in time for the month called Zombie Month. Be prepared to take on this zombie shooter! The Zombies motto may be, two brains are better than one, but its up to you to not let that happen!
As the title of the game mentions, Age of Zombies, will have players going through time to shoot down hordes of Zombies, where you play as commando Barry Steakfries. Players will be taking whatever is thrown at them by the evil Professor Brains, whose only goal is to destroy mankind with his horde of Zombies.
Today has kicked off the first update for Age of Zombies, which you will now be able to have local multiplayer. You will be able to have between 2-4 players helping you out in shooting down the hordes of Zombies, plus Ninjas, Mummies, Cavemen, and massive bosses, all with a massive array of weapons and explosives. Two hunters will be able to blast through the game with either the touch controls on the same device, or any supported game controller. With the local multiplayer, it will also allow for split screen action. Some of the devices that are supported include the Logitech PowerShell, Razer Kazuyo and SteelSeries Stratus. For the Android users out there, the controllers that you will interested in, include the following, the Nyko Playpad Pro, MOGA Pro Controller and Samsung Gamepad.
You will be able to play from the two playable characters, Barry Steakfries and then also the hero from the previous update ‘President Evil’, Honest Abe/Abraham Lincoln himself.
You will be able to go the official site for Age of Zombies, and follow the three title updates along with three updates that will be coming in the weeks to come. With the multiplayer mode being unlocked today, be sure to see that the next update will give players a new survival map! Also be sure to stay up to date with Halfbrick as they will be running daily contests for t-shirts, limited edition artwork and even gear from Nvidia and Razer.
