New 3D Zombie Video Game App to Become Available on Amazon

Anyone for a bloodbath? Grab your chainsaw and let the games begin!

GraveStompers: Zombie Vs. Zombie, the video game app that experienced a meteoric rise in popularity among smart phone users when it debuted 5 months ago, will relaunch as a “new and improved version of its former self” and become available for $1.99 on Amazon’s new handheld tablet, Kindle Fire, starting Thursday, January 17, announced its creator Matthew Newman.

The app is the latest in the current zombie craze, placing gamers in the role of a zombie hero who finds himself in the midst of a 3D world where hordes of mutated undead creatures -- spawned by the game’s maniacal villain Dr. Cayhille -- have taken over. Armed with a chainsaw, users fight their way through 80 levels that increase in difficulty as they advance. This alternate world features settings ranging from quiet beach towns to chaotic junkyards -- all swarming with the living dead. The game starts off with players fighting off simple zombies, as it progresses, the enemies grow in terms of strength and power to include necrotic corpse demons and zombeasts.

New to the latest version of the game is the introduction of the killer character Ghostface from “SCRE4M” (“Scream 4”) that may be purchased for $4.99 and can be enlisted to help players advance. Newman said that in addition to Ghostface, GraveStompers has plans to continue incorporating other characters from major horror film series. The app also offers weapons upgrades like rocket launchers and Gatling guns.

“We were floored to have attracted 500,000 gamers when we originally launched GraveStompers a few months ago. We reengineered that version and improved it considerably, so we’re looking forward to welcoming those players back and attracting new ones,” said Newman. “The fact that it’s available on Kindle Fire should help us reach a whole new audience.”
