  • Progress Saving

  • Smoother Accelerometer Controls
  • New Game Over Screens

Z is for Zombie 2.0 Lite

On Monday I submitted Z is for Zombie Lite 2.0,  and it is currently in review with Apple. As version 2.0 was a significant update for the full Z is for Zombie, this is also a pretty big update, porting over many of the same changes:

  • Progress Saving
  • High Scores
  • Statistics
  • Zombies have hit points
  • New Weapon! Pistol
  • Massive performance improvements
  • New onscreen controls (joystick)
  • Smoother Accelerometer Controls
  • New Game Over Screens
  • Finally, a ton of bug fixes

Obviously not everything came over, I need to leave some of the good things in the full version :) So, you only get 2 weapons in the Lite version, the Ninja Star and the Pistol. You’ll have to spend the $.99 cents to upgrade to the full version to get the Shotgun and PipeBombs. It should be out this evening, in the mean time you can grab version 1.0 and check it out!

and so it goes

Z is for Zombie 2.1 was just submitted to the app store :) The general consensus from the 2.0 update was that the gameplay got a lot more difficult. I’ve balanced the fastest / strongest zombies so they move a little slower, and are a little easier to kill.

Not too easy though :)

If past updates are any indication, it should be out towards the end of the week.

Z is for Zombie 2.0 hits the app store!

  • Progress Saving
  • High Scores
  • Statistics
  • Zombies have hit points
  • New Weapons! Pistol / Shotgun / PipeBomb
  • Massive performance improvements
  • New onscreen controls (joystick)
  • Smoother Accelerometer Controls
  • Unlockable Freeplay (go back and beat your score)
  • New Game Over Screens
  • Finally, a ton of bug fixes

V is for Vortex / Z is for Zombie promo code contest!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I’ve got 15 promo codes for each of my games, Z is for Zombie and V is for Vortex. To win a code, all you need to do is follow me on twitter and tweet something about the games.

Rules:
1. Follow me on twitter: http://twitter.com/jonmulcahy
2. Tweet a message, any message, about winning a code. It could be anything like “hoping to win a code for V is for Vortex”
3. Include this link: http://bit.ly/6kA8rI
4. Also include @jonmulcahy so I get the message

The contest is open until 11:59PM EST, at that time (or when I wake up), I will randomly select 15 messages per game. Every person can enter twice, one entry per game.

Once iTunes Connect opens back up I’ll have another contest, but until then, these are all the codes I’ve got.

Contests over for now

Contests are over for now, I gave away almost 50 codes for both Z is for Zombie and V is for Vortex, and they went fast. I also picked up like 30 new followers, not many compared to many people, but that was a 50% increase for me!

I’m still sending out codes, I’ve only sent out 1 V is for Vortex code so far, but the twitter users below won (forgive me if i spelled your name wrong, I had to write them all down quickly from my phone).  It’s going to take me awhile to send out all the codes, but they are coming.

This thursday, Christmas Eve I’ll be holding another contest. I’ll have a few Z is for Zombie / V is for Vortex promo codes to give away. Everyone who wins will also get a copy of my other app HypnoPhone (HypnoPhone Lite is free). HypnoPhone is one of the first apps I made, and it was released last spring. It’s a basic, but fun, hypnosis app that really only succeeds in making people dizzy :)

V is for Vortex Winners!
