It goes without saying that there is a zombie craze. Movies, games, and the media in general just seem to love those undead eaters of brains. There are countless stories of how these zombie problems start and countless more of how they’re fixed. There is now a game called Undead Slayer that takes out the guess work and just lets you get to the business of slaughtering zombies.

The Undead Slayer premise is unique for a zombie game. The player is set in an ancient Chinese dynasty in a fictional world full of zombies. So what’s a player do, except pick up a samurai weapon and get to hacking them to pieces. To see a full trailor, check out the video posted at the bottom.

In the game, players can choose among a number of playable characters. Each with their own weapon and special powers. As the game progresses, players level up and obtain more health and more power. It’s from a top-down perspective and the game play is reminiscent of the old Dynasty Warriors games. You just mash buttons and kill things.

Where can one pick up a copy of Undead Slayer?

The game is available in the Google Play Store right now and it’s free of charge. If you’re having trouble finding it, here’s a link. Reviews for the game have been primarily positive. It’s ease of use makes it pretty simple to grasp for beginners and advanced gamers alike.

Perhaps the coolest part of this game is that it was developed by just one guy. The good game play, the nice grapics, all 90 stages, and all the incorporated moves were all done by a single developer. That deserves more than a kudos. Will anyone be checking out Undead Slayer?

    A samurai sword is japanese yet the article refers to a Chinese dynasty setting.

    I dont believe these cultures have a history of intermingling

    What gives?

      The dev is Korean. I don’t think he really gives a flip.

        I said weapon, not sword. The samurai had a rich assortment of weapons.

        Also, while they were based in Japan, Japan, Korea, and China had a rich history together during periods were samurai were common.

    I think this article should include a disclaimer that root users are not able to play this game. Sad for me that all my devices are rooted, i guess no hacking and slashing for me :(

      You could always get a temp unrooter app. One click removes the root packages, then one click restores them. Easy peasy.

    Glad it doesn’t work on rooted devices. Rooting is stupid.

      Steffy, you are only saying that because you are not familiar with rooting or modding your android device but you do own an android device so soon you will join the Darkside.

    glad the game is awful.
    I don’t regret cant install it my rooted phone.

    good developers don’t fiddle around with root settings.
    good developers give good gameplay experience.

    its completely user rights to root its own phone.
    dev should never force player to have root/unroot phone. for me that’s feel like privacy violation.

    Developers need to realize that most Android users will sooner or later Root their device Why You Say? Because the OS updates are simply not even or equal across the board. For people like me with 2 Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7′s, 1 Motorola Xoom 1 and a Samsung Galaxy S 2, the only way I could get Jelly Bean 4.1 or 4.2 was by rooting and modding my devices. Is it fair that I not get a game because of root? I think not.
