*** UPDATE: AN ENTIRE NEW EPISODE ***



I finally finished it. It's only published on Google Play for now as I need to make slight changes for other stores. Expect it in the next few days.

What's new:
* drive through an infested cave
* 11 challenging levels
3 new vehicles (a beetle, a jeep and a construction vehicle) with a new upgrade;
upgrade your battery to prevent your lights going out in the dark cave
lots of new obstacles (explosives, piles of wood, earthquakes, vulcanoes, ground changes, crystals, mine carts, bones and more undead!

A teaser and a few screenshots below.







Hi!

Here's something I've been working on for the last five months.
It's a "drive through a zombie apocalypse" type of game. You can buy and upgrade your vehicles to be able to drive over several obstacles, smash crates and explosives and hit more and more zombies.

The game play changes a bit in the last few levels, but I won't reveal everything here.

It might seem a bit slow at the beginning and it's probably why I got some bad reviews already.
UPDATE: speed and acceleration of the first vehicle is now improved.

Check the link and the video+screenshots below.
Thanks for trying it out guys.

I've made some changes based on the comments and emails I received so far:

* first vehicle is now a bit faster and with more fuel by default
* breaking of crates and explosions are less cpu intensive
* rating button hides itself after posting a review
* fixed vehicle wheels (which looked like they weren't touching the ground)
* vehicle won't stop if you accidentally hit the left side of the display while accelerating

Tried it, it's really simple and relaxing, I'm enjoying it a lot :)
Btw i didn't understand the "tap on the right side when trying to climb a hill or driving over an obstacle", when i tap it seems to do nothing special. I'm stuck on the 4th level, but i think it's a skill problem :)

Hi _MirageX_!

I'm glad someone here is playing my game! :) Thanks!
You can tap quickly on the right side to give your vehicle a little push when you're stuck on a rock or just about to climb on the top of a hill.
It won't help you always if your car is not upgraded enough, but might make a difference in some situations.

You can also tap left a little first to push it in the opposite direction.

your advice worked perfectly, would be nice to have some other levels, cause the idea is awesome.
Oh, and different soundtracks any X levels, but those are just advices

After almost three weeks, most of the complaints I got were about the speed of the first vehicle.
The speed is now increased, plus some of the upgrades are already applied.

In addition to that, there's a short level as I mentioned in the previous post.

Hey, checked your game today,

Love it ! Although the idea not too much of a unique one, but the way physics are implemented gave it a new twist, especially the squeaking : ) suspensions

I love the graphics and the music, two suggestions:
- You might want to have some dynamic movement in the background, parallax or something.
- For the music, maybe add another background music with a different guitar riffs and switch between them, just in case users get bored with the same riff.

Again Very Nice game, run without much Jitter : ) left you a comment on GP

Test device: galaxy gio

hope you find it usefull

Thanks for the review and the rating on google play eli.r.
I really appreciate it.

The background actually already is a parallax, but it's one layer only. I aimed for better performance and tried to use the resources where it matter most.
I might be adding more music as I'm working on a new level pack right now.

arunasok3, actually it doesn't support small screens. Not because it wouldn't work, but because you would cover a substantial part of the screen with your thumbs.
You can PM me though and I'll share you the apk so you can try for yourself.
