Plight of the Zombie

If there's one thing that always tickles my fancy when it comes to iPhone games it's strategy. Oh how I love it. It's like a fun little mind work out when I should be working.

Take the strategy genre and throw in a dash of zombies and you got yourself a recipe for one hell of a good time. Which is exactly what the good people over at Spark Plug Games thought when they made Plight of the Zombie. A trace and go strategy romp with plenty of brain chomping in between.

In P.Z. you start off as a mildly overweight guy named Craig who is hankering for a burger in the midst of a full blown zombie apocalypse. Sure his priorities might be a little out of whack, but off he ventures into the streets in search of beefy goodness anyway.

In a prime example to why you should always look both ways before crossing the street, he is hit by a car and dies hungry. As all soon to be zombies do, he rises from the grave, still hungry. Not for a cheesy burger, but for brains!

And so begins your adventure to feed Craig and his pals that grey matter they crave so much. In the beginning of each level, Craig starts out on the streets with the objective to infect the humans and eat as many brains as you can along the way. Trace your digit across the screen in the path you want him to follow and Craig will do the rest.

With over 30 levels of puzzles, destructible environments,  and beautiful 3D graphics, Plight of the zombie is one portable game that'll occupy your time for quite some time.

This looks great, I think that I'd have no problems playing this game if I could, just like you these kinds of games are right up my alley.

Poor Charlie. I wonder if they'd have a board game he designed as an easter egg.

I'm trying not to spend time playing games but this one has zombies and strategy elements- so torn.

Now you can grow a real ZOMBIE PLANT that "PLAYS DEAD" when you touch it then comes back to life!!
