Judge Dredd takes on Zombies in new App Game
Fuse Powered Inc. and Rebellion, the owners of 2000AD, have just released Judge Dredd vs. Zombies for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
In Judge Dredd vs. Zombies,
players are the Law, taking on the role of one of the world’s most
famous comic book heroes as Judge Dredd declares a (second) death
sentence on invading zombies. Using simple, “single-stick” controls,
players shoot up zombies across thirty levels of over-the-top undead
mayhem, unlocking weapon and equipment upgrades as justice is served. Judge Dredd vs. Zombies is available now on the App Store for $.99.
“When we met with Rebellion to discuss bringing their Judge Dredd brand to iOS, we saw right away that Judge Dredd vs. Zombies
was a winning formula,” said Jon Walsh, CEO at Fuse Powered.
corner, you have an iconic character from one of the most-loved comic
book series of all time, and in the other corner – an endless horde of
zombies. Rebellion is a proven world-class independent console developer
and we’re thrilled to bring The Law to the iTunes App Store.”
Dredd is of course none too pleased when
zombies invade Mega City One and player s can help him punish these unlawful undead invaders with their Lawgiver and a devastating arsenal of powerful weapons. (You can increase your “Law Meter” by slaughtering the zombie horde and earn
credits to unlock new guns and upgrades).
"From our first meeting
with Fuse we realized that there was strong potential for a great
partnership. Their analytics, marketing tools and expertise are
invaluable assets for iOS developers." said Jason Kingsley, CEO of
Rebellion. “It’s a great cultural fit. We get to do what we do best -
make great games - and Fuse does what they do best - maximize each
game’s chance of success.”
