Zombies, Run! Will Have You Wanting To Run A 5K Race

There are very, very few apps I would be willing to pay money for. Should they cost more than a dollar, they would have to have more than appealing qualities about them to part me from my money. This is especially the case when it comes to games.

Making a good app that is a game, especially when it costs $7.99, means that you must really have something amazing on your hands. It’s called Zombies, Run! And you can imagine what it’s about. It was designed to help you achieve goals in a fun and terrifying way. By goals, I mean running.

Simply put in your headphones, and be transported to a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies. You are playing the part of Runner 5, and it is your job to rebuild civilization as we know it. You job is to run around the ruins while collecting necessities and looking for survivors. The more you run, the more missions you complete, and the bigger the population of your city becomes.

This seems interesting enough, but on top of all this, there’s a storyline. It will explain where the zombies came from, and what moves the leaders of your base are planning next. There are puzzles, websites, and documents that will all play a part in your journey across the wastelands. Of course, you can still listen to music in between the messages that will urge you onward, so it will feel more like a radio being interrupted with real-time messages. Being that I am absolutely terrified of zombies, I can confidently say that I would get to the games end in a rather short time span.
