Can you believe it’s been one year already since Halfbrick released Age of Zombies onto iOS? I certainly can believe it because I remember reviewing it last year. To celebrate Age of Zombies’ release on iOS, Halfbrick has released Age of Zombies Anniversary which includes some neat features not available in the original Age of Zombies.
One of the first things updated for Age of Zombies Anniversary was the game’s graphics. Don’t get me wrong – the graphics in the original Age of Zombies looked nice, but Halfbrick has officially brought the Age of Zombies experience into the HD-era by fine tuning all of the graphics to give that pleasing-to-the-eye HD look.
But wait, there’s more! Age of Zombies Anniversary also comes with an entirely new Wild West level that has Barry Steakfries battling zombie frontiersman who are most likely mining for gold… and BRAINS! The game also supports Game Center leaderboards, new achievements, and iCloud support to play the same game across multiple iOS devices.
I know what you’re thinking, “Why didn’t Halfbrick just update Age of Zombies to the anniversary version?” I was thinking that too, but given how many quality games Halfbrick has given us throughout the years, I think it’s safe to say they’re allowed to re-release an updated version of Age of Zombies and charge us $.99 for it. After playing with the game for a couple of hours last night, I can tell you the updated graphics, new chapter, and iCloud support are certainly worth price of admission.
