Dead Plague (Beta)
Dead Plague is in only in beta but it looks really promising. It’s a top-down twin-stick shooter where you must blast your way through wave after wave of zombies — imagine if they made a mobile-optimized version of Left 4 Dead.
That’s essentially Dead Plague, which at this point in production offers a basic storyline that drenched in zombie blood as explore an island that’s infested with the living dead. You’ve got a full arsenal of weapons to fight back with, and the game strategically provides ammo deposits throughout each level which is a nice touch and prevents you from becoming too trigger happy. Enemies will also be alerted to your location if you make noise near them, so if you’re too careless you’ll soon find yourself overrun by the horde.
The graphics are good and the touch controls are decent as well, but it’s not fair to judge this game too much considering it’s still in development.
