Zombie Gunship isn't to violent but is quite boring [for me] so adults might find it boring.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Zombie games are a bit played out in the App Store. Generally, if you've seen one, you've seen them all -- shoot the shuffling (or sometimes speedy) undead as they try to devour your cranium. ZOMBIE GUNSHIP turns the genre on its ear, though, taking you off the ground and reinvigorating things in the process. Using a grainy infrared camera, you'll shoot the zombies from an attack airplane, while trying to save civilians running for cover. The game's pacing is also slower than most zombie games as well, which works to its benefit.

Using a word like "realism" with a zombie game seems wrong, but the game does feel more like a simulation than a gory fantasy game -- ditching background music and colorful graphics for a stark feel that works wonderfully with the formula. The result? One of the smartest zombie games to come out on any platform.
