Zombie Apocalypse is a FPS/Strategy game for the PS3, Wii, and Xbox being made by Lemmykoopa24 (t∣b∣c). You control yourself in a world where the zombies have taken over most of the planet and it's up to you and your fellow survivors to try and eliminate the zombies.
It's 9:00 AM and you wake up. You head downstairs, make some breakfast, and get dressed. You then try calling your friend Tyrone and see what he's doing. While talking on the phone, he tells you that he tried calling his other friend, but he didn't pick up.
You head over to Tyrone's house and, on your way there, you notice that the town is completely empty. When you arrive at Tyrone's house, you 2 decide to see why the town is so quiet.
After walking for a few minutes, you spot something in a ditch. You and Tyrone run to it and you both withdraw in disgust and horror. Inside the ditch, you found a zombies head. You and Tyrone look at each other right in the eye, and you realize what you must do. You decide to arm yourselves, secure a hiding spot, and round up more people to survive this apocalypse.
Gameplay & Controls
(Note: These are PS3 controls)
The game is affected by a Day & Night system. During daytime, you head to stores to equip yourself with whatever will help you survive. During Night, you must get to your nearest hideout and prepare to fight off hordes of zombies with whatever you've got. Along the way, you will run into survivors that may help you fight or gather weapons. Because the zombies have already killed most of the people, you may just walk into stores and take whatever you need.
