Zombies, Run!

Part game, part fitness training, Zombies, Run! is the absolute BEST way I’ve seen to get yourself zombie fit. And it also may be the thing that finally makes me buy an android or an iPhone (that I can’t afford), so I hope the maker is fucking happy.

Effectively, Zombies, Run! is an audio game for iPhone, iPod touch and Android. In it, you choose your own music list, choose a route, and the game does the rest. In it, You’re Runner 5. Hundreds of lives are counting on you. You’ve got to help your base rebuild from the ruins of civilization by collecting critical supplies while avoiding roving zombie hordes. Can you save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse?

Not only that, but it has strategy and RPG elements. As you run, you collect essential items- med kits, ammo, etc- and you have to decide who is more in need. So for completists like me, it’s perfect.

Zombies, Run keeps track of distance, speed, calories burned, etc, so if you’re nerdy and serious about surviving the apocalypse, check it out.

  1. Love zombie games and this one is particularly fun. How can you NOT want to play a game that gets your heart racing because your feet are moving and because the shambling horde is near!

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. I’ve been using the app for a couple of weeks as part of my blog’s Zombie Fitness Fridays, and I love it. It adds that little touch of fear to give you the boost of adrenaline you need to keep going. I think I need to update it, though, I’ve not tried the RPG bits of it yet.
