Finally a game worthy of zombie lovers tired of seeing zombies die at the hands of crazed humans. Spark Plug Games anounced their plans to release Plight of the Zombies on the iOS and Android platforms later this summer.
Here’s a partial description of Plight of the Zombies from the folks at Spark Plug Games:
:All we ask is that you to check out our cause and help end zombie hunger. There are those among us who are misunderstood. They’re rejected by society and even killed, just for being who they are! It’s time to walk a mile in someone else’s shoe, or in this instance, someone’s deceased and quite undead shoe as you feel the everlasting pangs of hunger.
You know what it’s like to be counting down the clock to lunchtime, absolutely craving a burger (or veggie burger). Just imagine that feeling every day. And instead of burgers, you want brains. It could happen, right?
“Zombie hunger is a real epidemic and one that we take very seriously here at Spark Plug Games,” said John O’Neill, carnivorous President of Spark Plug Games. “We have invested heavily into the cure for zombie hunger in this yummy game, and we hope it solves the plight of zombies everywhere.”
Plight of the Zombie features:
● Play over 30 deliciously brainy puzzles
● Be one with your inner zombie. As you nom on yummy brains
● Support a savory cause by helping end zombie hunger
● Appetizing store with plenty of tasteful accessories for your zombies
● Available initially on Android platforms by Q2 2012, iOS by Q3
● It’s free! Some people say there’s no such thing as a free lunch. We beg to differ…”
We look forward to playing Plight of the Zombies when it becomes available for download.

In Angry Birds Space the Angry Birds will move in a straight line unless something changes it collides with an object like a moon or satellite to change its direction. (more…)
