A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Game uses simple touch controls but can get tricky.
Violence & Scariness
While you are a zombie, and eat people, it's very cartoony, so you're never shown chowing down on anyone.

Is It Any Good?
While zombies are usually left to games that are violent, bloody, and gross, this undead arcade game is silly, cartoony, and fun for almost all ages of living dead lovers. In Zombie Beach Party, you have to help steer a zombie so he can eat people and get them to join his conga line. This is done by just swiping your device's touchscreen; zombies simply keep going in whatever direction they're moving until told otherwise. You can also steer them toward gold coins or use such power-ups as brains, which make you temporarily invincible.
This all probably sounds rather silly, and it is. It's decidedly closer to Plants vs. Zombies than to The Walking Dead. And that's doubly true when you realize you can steer your undead friend toward a beach volleyball net and then tap the screen so he and his pals will limbo under it. But it still provides some challenge, especially when the beaches become more hazardous. It could mix things up even more, though; this gets to be repetitive after a couple hours. Still, while you would never want to be at a party with real zombies, you'll have a lot of fun hanging out with your undead pal and his ever increasing circle of friends at their Zombie Beach Party.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
