Today’s Game Time is a short one, as all gamers should be playing StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. But between Zerg rushes and Firebat flamewars, we’ve got you covered with some seriously fun games. This week we’ve got Zombies, Aliens, and Governments.
If vampires rule the silver screen, zombies are ruling the iPad’s IPS screen. If we had to guess, we’d say about half the games in the App store involve zombies and the other half farms. But we’re okay with that, just so long as they keep churning out awesome games like Zombie Infection HD.
You know what a Zombie’s favorite sauce is? Grave-y.
Zombie Infection HD is a third-person shooter with some seriously impressive graphics. You can shoot the limbs and heads off of flesh eating zombies for extra points. Controls aren’t as tricky as you’d think, and in no time you’ll be clearing out swarm after swarm of zombies as you and your team get to the bottom of the game’s mystery.
Check it out if: you like Resident Evil or Left 4 Dead.
RISK: The Official Game
At this point, RISK is a little late to its own game. Strategery is a huge hit across iOS devices, due in no small part to it being a universal app with a low price. RISK is neither of these, but some RISK purists won’t have it any other way.
Playing as any team besides the Yellow team is risky business.
Subtle rule shifts from its generic counterpart are what make RISK, well, RISK. Graphics here are also nothing to scoff at, and the addition of characters raise the stakes a bit from the random shaped teams of Strategery. Though it’s a tad on the spendy side for an iPhone app, it really is worth the money.
Check it out if you: liked Strategery.
InkVaders is a side-scroller with a pronounced doodle style. The game is delightfully gory and easy to pick up or put down. We’d venture to say this is the most fun we've had with a side-scroller on the iPad.
Die alien scum!
It’s also this week’s Editor challenge. Try and beat our insanely good score of 39,562 and we’ll honor you in some way.
Check it out if you: just really hate aliens.
