Head shots, high speed chases, and blood spatter, what’s not to love! iZombie: Death March is a 2D birds eye view shooter game where your fingers do the talking and let off shotgun blasts toward a relentless wave of zombies, chainsaw wielding monsters, demonic dogs, flying skulls and more. Do you have what it takes to survive the onslaught?
Created by Sonic Boom Inc., and available for the hard to beat price of FREE, iZombie: Death March offers you six stress inducing, tap-n-tilt requiring, shotgun blasting levels of fun. You have three difficulty levels from which to choose (Easy, Normal, and Death Wish). If you’re a pansy and choose Easy then you’ll probably cruise through all six chapters in less than 30 minutes. But for those with a little more gusto, the game offers an hour or more of non-stop action when you choose higher difficulty levels.
Each level within the game offers a slightly different challenge. Zombies and other menacing characters come at you from all angles. To kill your devilish attackers you simply tap on them to fire your gun. Direct taps to the cranium inflict momentum haulting head shots that reduce your would be executioners into chunks. More difficult levels require you to shine a flashlight on your enemies prior to placing a cap in their dome. I really like the flashlight concept, because it adds to the suspense and stress of the game, unfortunately it doesn’t work as well as it could. Half the time I found the flashlight to move in different directions and sometimes not at all when using the exact same movements. Other levels require you to steer a truck around zombies in the street while at the same time firing shotgun blasts toward a massive beast. If the beast catches the vehicle you die. So whatever you do, keep the pedal to the medal, swerve like your life depends on it, and keep your finger fixed on the trigger.
At the end of each level you get a summary of your accomplishments like score, award, accuracy, total kills, limbs removed, head shots, and most kills at once. I didn’t care for these stats as much in the easier levels, but when you increase the difficulty and reach the more difficult chapters it’s kinda nice to see how you did.
Overall iZombie: Death March is a pretty ok game. It’s definitely a good time killer and seeing that it’s free it’s harmless to download so I definitely recommend that you check it out. Ideally I’d love to see the flashlight sensitivity and inaccuracy to be fixed and a bunch more chapters added to the game.
