A fun zombie shooter

Mindlessly fun gameplay, auto-aim assist
Auto-aim assist, game stutters, and the animation is a bit janky
Zombie Shooter for Android is a quirky, uh, zombie shooter. Okay, so maybe the game doesn’t have the most original title, and maybe the gameplay isn’t too original either, but the game is decently fun. If you like walking around and massacring hordes of zombies, then this is your jam.
If you’ve got two thumbs and at least one eye, then you’re well on your way to laying waste to hundreds of zombies. Your left thumb moves your character while your right thumb shoots. One of the games greatest strengths is that it has an auto-aim feature. One of the game’s greatest weaknesses is that it has an auto-aim feature.
On one hand, you never miss a shot. On the other hand, you can’t really prioritize who you want to shoot. There was one instance where the boss I was trying to bring down was right in the middle of a giant swarm of zombies that was about to overtake me. Had I been able to aim manually then I could have carved a path straight to the boss and taken him down. Instead, it just dances from target to target.
The game has a lot of mission options to keep things interesting. Sometimes you’ll just need to survive while other times you’ll need to target specific zombies to kill. Most of the time you’ll be grinding through side-missions to gain experience and gold to buy more guns and upgrade them. The game also requires you to manage your ammo a bit as well because you have to purchase it, though you’ll sometimes luck out and find some on the ground.
Zombie Shooter is a great game to play in a literal daze. It doesn’t take much thought, but it’s oddly satisfying when you mow down hordes of zombies. Maybe that’s why zombie games are still so popular now.
