What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Zombie Gunship Survival is an aerial shooting game where you, as the gunner on a military plane, have to prove air support for your fellow survivors when they're being attacked by zombies. But because it has an aerial perspective, and a black & white visual style, there's no blood or gore. There's also no other inappropriate content to be found. Players use in-game currency to upgrade their weapons and home base, and said currency is earned by doing well, watching ads, or by buying it in the game's store. Read the app's privacy policy in the game's settings menu or on the game's website to find out about the information collected and shared.

What's it about?

In ZOMBIE GUNSHIP SURVIVAL, the undead are walking the Earth and society has collapsed. Thankfully, you and some fellow military veterans have banded together to survive. As the gunner on a heavily armed plane, your job in the New World Order is to provide air support for your friends on the ground when they go on supply runs or when the undead attack your base. 

Is it any good?

With an aerial perspective and a strategic mindset, this puts an interesting spin on the typical zombie shooter. In Zombie Gunship Survival, you're the gunner on a military gunship, and have to provide air support for both troops on supply runs and for your base when it comes under attack by hordes of the undead. But this isn't just a game of pointing and clicking. You have multiple weapons, which can run out of ammo or overheat, as well as the ability to zoom in your perspective. But while you can aim your machine guns and cannons, what you don't have, though, is control over where the plane goes relative to the ground. You also have to use those supplies your friends gather to improve your base as well as your weapons. All of which makes this a lot more involved than the similar parts of Call of Duty games. Unfortunately, the zombie apocalypse does make things a little awkward. There are times when you'll try to aim your gun but it will zoom in instead. Also, given your military background, it seems odd that your guns would work as badly as they do, overheating rather quickly. Still, if you hate zombies, but also hate getting their bits all over you when you shoot them up close, Zombie Gunship Survival is an engaging undead shooter with a different perspective.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about violence in video games. Do you feel differently about the violence in the game given that it's against dead people? Why do you think that is?

  • Talk about perspective. Unlike many games where you're shooting zombies, this one has you doing so from far away and high above, so does the distance make the action seem any less real? What about brecause you're shooting monsters?

  • Discuss spending money. Given that you can earn in-game money by playing and watching ads, does it make sense to spend any money on this game? What about the people who made it, should you spend some money to help them?
