** REVIEWS **

“Blood of the Zombies is a hugely enjoyable, brilliantly presented, hilariously violent romp. If this is your first gamebook or your 30th, you’re going to have a whale of a time.” – POCKET GAMER - 9/10 - GOLD AWARD!

“…its speedy combat and inbuilt adversity make it a great candidate for the app treatment. A skilled app designer and an experienced author have collaborated and managed the rare feat of creating something greater than the sum of their individual talents.” - GAMEZEBO - 4.5/5

“Ultimately, fans of the old stories should enjoy Blood of the Zombies. It delivers an authentic Fighting Fantasy experience while updating the gameplay and style in its own way. ” – STARBURST - 8/10

“…for those looking for an interesting storyline and a delightful walk down memory lane, it’s a sterling effort and one that very much deserves its asking price. I’m already looking forward to other Fighting Fantasy/Tin Man Games collaborations.” – 148 APPS - 4.5/5 – EDITOR’S CHOICE!

“Beautifully presented, a little campy but oh-so-worth that walk down memory lane, Blood of the Zombies will not go amiss in your library of interactive iOS-based tales.” – TOUCH ARCADE - 4/5

Not as good as the oldies The story and the writing is dull, and so is the overall structure of the book. Not a patch on some of the old classics, and this isn't just nostalgia speaking.

Overpriced Polish This app is a mixed bag, and pretty overpriced in many respects. It is faithful to the original, with the added bonus of having an automated Adventure Sheet. Plus, the music and artwork are pretty good, showing a lot of polish. However, the story still has the problems of the original - it is very linear. The target audience for this app is people who are already fans of the format, who probably already own this title as an actual book. As such, despite being a good app, it is ultimately overpriced.

A fun challenge Despite of not being a traditional fantasy FF book, it is at least as much fun and probably provides more replayability on phones/tablets. The book itself is not too bad, playing through is hard and might require a couple of tries. The presentation of the app is great, I thoroughly enjoyed reading and playing. (The music+sounds is non-existent but pls compare with any other paper-based book. ;) ) Definitely a good investment for fans of zombie flicks and FF books who do not insist on die-hard fantasy themes.
