AE Zombie War Zone is a good shooter for Windows Phone in which you will have to withstand attacks of zombies, mutants and other creatures, while having in hand different firearm, several grenades and first aid kits. Actions in the game take place from the first person view and you cannot budge. Moreover, you cannot even turn by more than 45º because the game is presented in the form of a shooting range.
Despite the nuances mentioned above, the gameplay turns out to be quite fascinating. The main thing is to observe some rules and then the game will not be a burden but a joy. In order to destroy a monster as quickly as possible, it is necessary to shoot him in the head. By shooting in the body, you can kill everyone as well, but in this case you will have to spend a lot of ammunition to be bought for the earned money.
Game featuresWith each new level, the number of zombies will increase. Also, other mutants will emerge, among which there are even dogs and huge monsters. Do not forget to look down, as dogs sometimes hide behind huge mutants, and when you are settling the latter's hash, dogs start to bite the main character from below. At that, they are hardly visible, if you don't lower the camera down.
To cope with enduring monsters by using an ordinary handgun would be incredibly difficult, but if you gather the required amount of money up to the moment, you can buy any machine or rifle. After each completed job, you will be able to look into the store and perform weapon upgrade.
Don't forget to buy cartridgesIn the store, it is necessary to replenish ammunition and we would advise not to spare. With access to only a gun, in the fourth level already even hundreds of rounds of ammunition won't be enough to fight mutants, so you should suit yourself for future use. Of course, it's sad not to be able to sell the remaining ammunition and weapons that you bought earlier. In the future, you will certainly not need them because they will be too weak and will lie dormant in the inventory.
Unpleasant nuancesAs in most games of this genre, in AE Zombie War Zone one couldn't last with only the currency that you can earn by firing at mutants. In order to be able to buy grenades, first aid kits and other types of weapons, you must have a rare currency which is easier to buy for real money than to earn in the game. Generally speaking, Donat is a little harsh here.
ResumeIn terms of graphics, the game is quite acceptable. The sound is good as well and fits perfectly into what is happening on the other side of the screen. Controlling is carried out by means of taps and swipes across the screen. You can select the target with a finger of the left hand, and with the right one you can click on the button that is responsible for the fire. Do not forget to recharge the magazine, otherwise you will run out of ammunition in the barrel at the most inopportune moment.
