Zombie Rider is a side-scrolling racer with an undead twist. The game seems a bit repetitive from the reviews we’re reading, but we haven’t had a chance to spend some hands-on time with this one yet (read: Yankees vs Tigers, Game 4 going down). One thing we noticed, however, is that the Zombies bear a displeasing resemblance to the undead characters in PopCap Games’ Plants vs Zombies. Probably just a coincidence.
Zombie road kings–start your engines! Why kill zombies when you can join them in this 2-D, side-scrolling racing game for your Android device.
Rumor has it, an evil scientist created a cure for the zombie virus, and the human race is spreading like fleas. Get on your chopper, and motor your way crosscountry to the zombie sanctuary in Chicago. Zombies, come one, come all!Navigate your reckless zombie using on-screen controls and your accelerometer. Ride like you’ve got nothing to live for because you’re already dead, and collect as many brains on the way. Brains cut seconds from your overall time, and get you further, faster. Now that’s using brain power.
Press the right side of the screen to accelerate, and the left side of the screen to brake or reverse. As you speed over hills, ramps, and other obstacles, you’ll launch your zombie in the air. Tilt the device to lean forward or backward. Lean extra far, and flip mid-air for a show-stopping trick, or just eat pavement. It’s not like it will hurt or anything.Beginning in Los Angeles, gather the zombie gang and ride the historic Route 66 all the way to America’s Midway. Each level covers some ground on the map and moves you closer to the zombie sanctuary. Small skulls along the route represent different stages of all three levels.
Cruise the wide open highway collecting brains, landing radical flips, and doing face plants, all to the tune of the hardcore rock ‘n roll soundtrack. It’s Chicago or bust!
