The first Zombie Highway game has been a long-time favorite here at Android Authority, even making its way to a number of our Best Apps lists. And now, the much-anticipated zombie survival game, Zombie Highway 2, just come to the Google Play Store this last week. It uses many of the same mechanics as the first Zombie Highway game, and features improved graphics and sound effects, new cars and weapons, and even the addition of nitro.
For those unfamiliar with the game, you’re driving a car down a zombie-infested highway that never ends. Zombies will jump on your car, and it’s your job to get rid of them by any means necessary. You can sideswipe other cars, use weapons or get a speed boost with nitro to get rid of the undead. The goal is to make it as far as you can without zombies taking over your vehicle, all while completing difficult challenges the game presents to you.
Even though the game has received a big overhaul, the aim of the game hasn’t changed one bit. You and your passenger, armed with boatloads of weapons, need to survive as long as you can. So what exactly does ZH2 offer over the first game?
- Completely overhauled, intense gameplay featuring NITRO!
- 6 redesigned cars
- 17 -upgradable- weapons, 100% redesigned. 4 completely new super-weapons!
- 10 Zombie types, 4 all new!
- 58 challenging objectives!
- The Daily Challenge! A unique challenge every day!
- A new, randomly generated road with multiple, super-detailed environments every game.
- Your friends appear on your highway near their best score!
Just like the original game, Zombie Highway 2 features a few in-app purchases. However, the developer explains that everything in the game can be unlocked with a reasonable amount of effort, so you won’t be at a huge disadvantage if you opt out of them. Also, this game just launched, so there are a few release day bugs to watch out for. Even so, they likely won’t interrupt the gameplay at all.
