Neat graphics, lots of levels, addictive game play, simple controls
9GAG is back with another fast-firing action shooter game for mobile. In Redhead Redemption for Android, you take control of a very red-tempered, red-haired school girl, as she finds her home town has been overrun by zombies. Alongside her gun slingin' baby brother, your job as the protagonist is to clean up the town and cut down the zombie hordes.
There are two different game modes in this game. The first game mode is a story-based campaign, and this will take you through various stages as you follow the story of the red-haired protagonist. Once you have completed the story mode, you unlock an endless horde mode that is great fun if you're looking to flex your zombie killing skills.
The gameplay in this game is a little bit like an endless runner game. On each level you need to run to a certain point and dodge obstacles by tilting the device. However, the twist here is that there are hordes of zombies chasing you. The protagonist's baby brother, who is sitting inside of the main character's backpack, constantly fires out a line of bullets, and you will need to steer into the zombies to hit them.
Currency plays an important part in the game, as it will be used to buy new equipment and upgrades for your current loadout. You can earn income by fighting zombies, and you can also pick up daily bonuses for opening up the game each day. You start with a simple pistol, but as you earn more money you can buy bigger weapons, increase your health, and even use power-ups such as speed boosts and bombs.
9GAG Redhead Redemption for Android is free to play, but there are a variety of in-app purchases that allow players to get better equipment, without the need to grind for it in-game.
