Zombies and Farms seem to be everywhere in gaming recently, especially with the phenomenons of Farmville and Plants Vs Zombies. What could be better than Zombie Farm?
Some people may be disappointed to find Zombie Farm isn't Left 4 Dead with farming, as this is a farm management game much like FarmVille. You begin with a small patch of plowed farmland, and have to get to work building up your place.
There's a Zombie Farm marketplace to buy crops, which you need to grow so you can sell them for gold. You can also grow zombies! These are used for attaching neighboring farms, which wins you more gold and brains for the zombies to eat. The aim is to have as big and well-developed farm as possible.
Like the Facebook game it apes, Zombie Farm is based around planning and waiting. Everything happens in real time, and the crops can take anywhere from a few minutes to over a day to grow. If you enjoy this type of gameplay, Farm Zombie is a fun game to dip into every day to tend to your farm and horde of zombies. It connects to Facebook, too, so you can keep your friends up to date with your undead farming progress.
There is commercial element to Zombie Farm: some objects cost brains instead of gold, and you can buy brains for real money, which can seriously speed up your farm's progress. Purchases are made in-game and through the app store.
Zombie Farm is a quirky take on the farming genre, and fans of these games will really enjoy it. For many people, the arbitrary waiting and lack of action won't keep them interested.
