Coming Soon to Mobile Phones: George A. Romero’s App of the Dead

Looking for a little more traditional zombie killing mayhem on your mobile phone? Well, you’re not going to have to wait much longer as Reverb Games is getting set to bring you George A. Romero’s App of the Dead!

From the Press Release
George A. Romero, the undisputed master of horror cinema (“Night of the Living Dead”, “Dawn of the Dead”, “Creepshow”, “Monkey Shines”, “Diary of the Dead”), today announced with partner, Peter Grunwald, and Artfire Films’ Art Spigel and Ara Katz, that APP of the DEAD, developed with Ohio-based Additive Interactive, will make its fiendish debut on Apple® iPhone™ and iPod® Touch in the coming weeks.

In anticipation of Romero’s latest feature, “George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead”, premiering in theaters May 28, APP of the DEAD makes you the director, allowing you to turn your friends and family into the most twisted, ghoulish shufflers. Take pictures or import photos from existing galleries and bring them to undead glory with grisly scars and bloody wounds!

Remember: the only safe zombie is a dead zombie. Use APP of the DEAD’s unique first-person shooter mechanic to lay waste to your zombified pals and loved ones. Save the photos and make them part of your own undead slideshow.

APP of the DEAD features include:

  • Take photos of your friends or import them from the photo gallery, then add over 20 zombie features, including open wounds, weapons, and a gallery of deformed eyes and mouths.
  • A custom-built engine that allows players to “shoot” the zombies they’ve created, including spectacular blood-splatter.
  • Save your zombies to your iPhone, then upload to to Facebook, other social networking sites, or email them to friends.

    APP of the DEAD is coming soon to Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

      I’ll look into it when it comes out. Mind you, the Idevices have hundreds of zombie themed games so sadly George’s is a little late to the party he started.

      This sounds like a fun app, too bad it appears to only be an Apple release. Port this baby to WebOS for Palm and i’ll gladly fork over a couple of bucks.
