A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The rules are simple and the controls work incredibly well. The farther you go in the game, though, the more challenging it will become.


As you drive down the highway, zombies leap onto your car and attempt to tip it over. You sideswipe debris and crashed vehicles in order to knock the zombies loose, often with a spray of blood. Your backseat passenger (who you also control) can use a gun to shoot zombies off the car at point-blank range, also with a spray of blood. The blood may be minimal compared to that in other zombie games, but the animation and graphics here are quite realistic.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the simple and exciting gameplay of Zombie Highway makes the game quite compelling, but that it is a very violent game. As in most zombie games, the goal is to kill the monsters. Players control a character who can choose from an arsenal of guns to shoot and kill the zombies, and there is plenty of blood. When it was originally released, Zombie Highway allowed users to connect to their Facebook accounts and brag about high scores, but that feature has been disabled.

Is it any good?

The rapid-paced gameplay and excellent control system make ZOMBIE HIGHWAY a super compelling game. There's not much to it -- you drive and knock zombies off your car -- but what's there is very well done. After you finally crash your car or get flipped onto your roof by the zombies, it's hard to resist saying, "Okay, one more try." As fun as it can be, though, Zombie Highway is definitely not a game for young kids. The onscreen blood is minimal compared to other zombie games, though, and the guns are all unseen inside the car, so mature teens should be able to handle it.
