Premier French game studio Mobigame is proud to announce the release of its latest iOS title, Zombie Carnaval, featuring a crowd of stampeding zombies on an unstoppable and highly entertaining warpath, it's flesh-eating fun for the whole family.
"There's nothing more exciting in zombie entertainment than when a hoard of the undead gathers together and begins to charge," says Mobigame CEO David Papazian, "and it's that mad, ravenous rush that we wanted to capture in Zombie Carnaval. It turns out that it's even more fun when you're in control of the zombie crowd, rather than one of the survivors, too!"

Beginning with a single zombie running across the screen, players must leap between platforms to keep the unstoppable undead runner moving, while biting any survivors in its path. Once turned, the new zombie is added to the cannibalistic crowd. Players build a stampede of as many hungry horrors as possible, and keep playing as long as at least one of the zombies remains re-animated.
"A feature we're particularly proud of is the way the carnival of zombies moves and works," explains Mobigame co-founder and Zombie Carnaval lead artist Matthieu Malot.
"The stampede moves and reacts like a swarm, with independent characters running together as a kind of chaotic machine. And it doesn't have to be the same zombie you started with to keep on playing. As long as one member of the pack is still alive, the carnaval continues!"
Six different power-ups are available, allowing the zombies to transform into a giant creature with lasers shooting out of its eyes, or organizing themselves into a Chinese dragon that snakes through the collection of worldwide locations eating everything in its path.
Combined with an in-game lottery that allows players to buy bonuses and power-ups, and full optimization for all models of iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, Zombie Carnaval puts the "fun" in "fun-dead."
Zombie Carnaval is now available at the App Store for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
