Now Serving Ice Cream: Zombies Ala Mode (iPhone) Game Review
Ahh zombies, you just can’t get enough of them. Crawl Space Games’ Zombies Ala Mode for the iPhone has zombies serving ice cream! Basically a falling block game, the game puts players in the shoes of a zombie ice cream assistant whose task is to catch the falling scoops of ice cream before passing it off to a waiting customer. Players much match the same ice cream flavours requested by the customer but it doesn’t matter whether the scoops are stacked in order.
As the levels goes by in the Career mode, more flavours are introduced along with falling obstacles that need to be avoided (e.g. barbeque pits, baseball bats, deckchairs, etc). I find that the controls whereby you need to tilt the iPhone left or right to move your zombie assistant to catch the scoops of ice cream to be a little unusual at first, but I got used to it after 5 minutes of play.
In each level, you earn money by the number of ice cream sold as well as tips left by happy customers. Irate customers will tired of waiting and will either not give you tips when you pass the ice cream to them, or they’ll just leave without their order. Getting hit by obstacles means that you lose the ice cream scoops that you have collected but you can purchase items such as helmets and umbrellas that offer up temporary protection against falling object. These are good for a few hits but after that you’ll need to watch out.
The best parts about Zombies Ala Mode is that it ramps up difficult in a pretty linear way, allowing players to adapt to the gradual increase in difficulty. The game also throws in a couple of other gameplay modes other than collecting ice cream in between the Career levels, one would have players avoiding obstacles and another zapping bugs. A survival mode along with the bug zapper mode are unlocked for single person play once the player completes the Career mode.
I like my ice cream and Zombies Ala Mode serves it up really well with some really fun and exciting/challenging gameplay. The game is available on the App Store for just USD 0.99, check it out over at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/zombies-ala-mode/id399052257?mt=8. RECOMMENDED
