Zombies, Run is in the Health category on the iTunes app store. It sounds like a game of course, but it is most certainly a helth-related app as well. It is also one of the most unique and potentially life changing mobile apps to be released to date.
Let’s start by thinking of it as a game. You have to collect supplies to build up your base which protects you from zombies and you have to complete challenges which involves escaping from every angrier and faster zombies. Each challenge gets more difficult and it is progressive in every way. The more you play, the more you will want to play and this is what makes it so addictive. It is part adventure and part action thriller, but it all comes together perfectly to create an experience which will keep you coming back time and time again.
And that’s just the half of it.
When we say that you have to run away from zombies, you really do have to run. As you jog or sprint, you will collect supplies and also hear the zombies footsteps and growls as they get closer to you. You are immersed in an atmosphere, through headphones, thanks to the sound effects, cleverly weighted noises and a narration which prompts you as to how close your enemies are to you.
You will be running every day just to complete the game, not with the goal of getting fit, but ultimately it will make you fitter because it is so challenging, so much fun and so amazingly addictive. This could be the start of a whole new generation of mobile app that makes games benefit you in more way than you ever imagined.
Available from the iTunes app store.
