Zombies invade Android
The fan-favourite app based on the Zombies from Call of Duty games is getting a new version for the legendary Call of Duty: Black Ops. Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies is exclusive to Sony’s Xperia smart phones and Xperia Play Optimised devices for 30 days but it will stumble into the worldwide Android arena after this time.
The app lets you shoot the living dead trying desperately to eat your face in 3 professionally made levels. The game also offers up Dead-Ops Arcade described by the developer’s as “a 50-level zombie gauntlet that provides the ultimate undead challenge for fans of Call of Duty’s signature Zombie action”. The Zombie hordes can be battled solo or as a team via Wi-Fi (I’m thinking that having someone to watch your back will definitely aid your chances of survival).
With the CoD Point System, available in the single-player mode, new levels can be unlocked as well as better weapons.
