The category is in a bit of a lull after a strong mid 2010s, but it’s tough to follow up after such a massive push. Here are the best zombie games for Android!

Dead Trigger 2

Price: Free to play

Dead Trigger 2 is one of the older zombie games. However, updates kept the game relevant even to today. It features a metric ton of missions, decent graphics, and pretty good first-person mechanics. There are also a bunch of weekly missions, hardware controller support, and plenty of weapons to collect. Like we said, it’s an older game.

Kill Shot Virus

Price: Free to play

Kill Shot Virus is one of the newer zombie games comparatively speaking. It’s a first-person shooter with a ton of zombies to shoot and kill. It features decent graphics, simple shooter controls, multiplayer content, and leaderboards. You also get over 100 missions, plenty of gear to collect, and more. It’s a freemium game and has a lot of the same problems as other freemium games. However, it’s a good alternative to long-time favorites and older zombie shooters like Unkilled and Dead Trigger 2. Most user complaints are about the freemium elements. The game play is good.

Last Day on Earth

Price: Free to play

Last Day on Earth is a survival game with zombie shooter, adventure, and open world elements. You build a base of operations, scrounge for items and materials, steal things, and kill zombies before they kill you. It also features seasonal landscapes, crafting elements, and plenty of extra stuff to do. This is an excellent survival game with some zombie game elements. We wouldn’t blame you if you thought the zombie influence was minimal, but we enjoyed the rest of the game play enough and it’s nice seeing zombies in a game that aren’t the main premise of the whole game. In any case, it’s a freemium game.

Of course, there are a ton of zombies to either run from or kill as well. It’s 2D with simple controls. It’s a surprisingly fun game for how simple and retro the graphics and controls are. The game had a rough start, but recent reviews seem to indicate that it’s better than its 4.1 rating (at the time of this writing) suggests.
