Lots of levels, interesting plot, addictive game play, responsive controls
Lord of Zombies for Android is a fun action game that puts you in control of a squad of zombies as they set out to fight against humans. The game follows the lord of the undead and his nefarious plans to convert all of the humans into zombies.
In this game, you will play through various different levels, accessible from the mission select screen on the main menu. Each level will have a series of enemies to fight and a large boss at the end. You are given one joystick for movement, and a selection of abilities on the right side of the screen for attacking. Whilst your basic attack can be used indefinitely, your other abilities, usually performed by other members in your team, have cooldowns.
One of the great things about this game is the combat system - you can chain together attacks and combos, and send all of the members of your squad into a full fury of attacks. As you play through the game, you will also be able to convert more humans and build up your army. The exciting part comes when you're given a variety of different classes to pick from. You can have five different zombies in-game at once, and each one will have their own set of abilities, weaknesses, strengths and leveling system.
Not only is the story and the gameplay in this game incredibly engaging, but the graphics are great too. The game features a 2.5D hybrid graphics style that merges both 3D and 2D elements into the same world. The end result is a beautiful experience that always looks great and runs smoother than butter.
Lord of Zombies is completely free to play, but there are a selection of in-app purchases that can be used to upgrade your squad.

Raise an army of the undead and wage war against the forces of the living in Lord of Zombies for Android. The game gives players a glimpse into the other side of the war against undead. Rather than play the boring humans defending the living, players see through the eyes of a zombie King. Risen from the grave with a thirst for revenge, all who stand in the player’s way shall fall and rise as minions in his army.
The player takes the role of the newly risen lord and is set loose upon the countryside using his powers to tear through armies of humans. As the living enemies fall players have a chance that they will be raised as undead pawns for the user’s army. Minions can be combined into the perfect destructive party, each with their own special ability. During downtime the player can spend their hard pillaged gold to upgrade minions and their weapons, along with spending skill points to upgrade their Lord.
Battles take place from a top-down perspective and lets players get a bird’s eye view of battles as they bash through enemies. Each unit in the player’s army has can be ordered to unleash a devastating attack upon enemies.
Overall Lord of Zombies is a well put together and amusing game. The kooky artwork, the great combat mechanics, the colorful environments, they all form something wonderful. The game does have its faults, such as some pass-through attacks and the occasional ads, they can all be easily overlooked when mixed in with the overall gameplay.
