The independent video game studio Secret Character have today provided us with our first look at their upcoming iOS game Zombie Hero: Revenge of Kiki. The game is set to be a beat em’ up platformer which as the title may suggest, pits you against horde after horde of flesh eating zombies. Of course, when it comes to the zombie apocalypse if you don’t prepare you are not safe, and it seems like the worlds superheroes have also fallen leaving their zombified bodies also after your brains.
So if all the superheroes have fallen prey to the oncoming zombie apocalypse…. just who will stand up to the threat? How about a super-villain? The protagonist Kiki is a notable villain whom in response to the recent events decided to change sides and fight for the good of mankind. The former villain is no stranger to violence; using powerful punches, kicks, kick-punches and brutal head-butt combos he is determined to take down every last one of the living dead. Players will learn to focus their rage into massive combo attacks that smash into large groups of the aggressive undead, making them even deader. Kiki’s rage increases as he fights, sending zombies flying and running for their zombie mommies. He’ll come across familiar foes, but this time on the side of good as he takes down zombie hero’s to save the world!
There is still quite a while until fans will be able to get their hands on the game, with Secret Character currenting planning for a Q1 2014 release. But either way, it doesn’t look too bad given how long there is until final launch. I myself am very picky about iOS titles I download, but Zombie Hero: Revenge of Kiki looks like it will tempt me to try it out upon launch.
