Massacre zombies on an epic scale with cool weapons

Neat graphics, exciting plot, addictive game play, simple controls
Monotonous game play, animation is a bit laggy, difficult to play without in-app purchases
Zombie Evil for Android is intense. If blasting the crap out of endless swarms of zombies sounds like fun, then this is your game.
Zombie Evil is entertaining, if not monotonous. You are the sole survivor on earth and everyone else has been turned into a ravenous zombie, bent on making a meal out of you. You are held up behind a barricade, presumably with enough provisions and ammo to make fighting for your life feel worthwhile. I guess there’s just no time to feel sorry for yourself, there’s too many zombies to kill. As swarms of zombies approach, your mission is simple: kill them all.
I love that you really don’t have to worry about ammo or reloading. Using bullets drains funds from your virtual stash of cash, however, killing zombies racks up the dollars just as quick. So you do need to think about how much you’re shooting, but so long as you’re killing zombies, it all equals itself out and you never really have to worry about it.
The controls are super easy and effective. Just drag your finger around the screen to fire in that direction. The action is fast and frenzied, and zombie blood spills everywhere in gruesome, if not comic book, detail. Kids will absolutely love this game as much as their parents hate it.
There are tons of upgrades, just waiting for you to spend some real coin to buy them. You can earn a lot of the upgrades through play, but the game will get monotonous pretty quick, weather you spend money or not.
The app killed my battery almost as fast as I was killing zombies. But the animation is relatively smooth and the graphics are disturbingly colorful. The sounds are entertaining, in an apocalyptic sorta way.
Zombie Evil is killer fun. I think it would give me the jitters if I went for marathon play, but it’s engaging and addictive; just not sure how captivating all this bloodshed will be in the long run.
