The Rolling Dead


The virtual zombiepocalypse is here!

The Rolling Dead is unlike any augmented reality game you’ve ever played. Using Sphero as a fireball-shooting warrior, you must battle against virtual zombies as they spawn out of the ground. Shoot them with fireballs, collect flaming power ups, and roll away to stay alive. The best part is you can play wherever you want. In this exciting twist on the zombie craze, the world becomes a video game and you choose the surroundings.

IMPORTANT: YOU NEED A SPHERO ROBOTIC BALL TO USE THIS APP.

Great idea! Shame it's so unstable Crash randomly and won't do anything when I touch the photo button. Won't install on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. Needs a little more work.

Should be compatible with more devices before release I was disappointed to learn that this game is only half compatible with my Acer Iconia Tab A1-810. Back camera 5MP 2592x1944 with Geo-tagging video Android OS, v4.2 (Jelly Bean) Chipset Mediatek MT8125 CPU Quad-core 1.2 GHz; A great gaming device. Cost me 200cdn. Not the best tablet but certainly not a POS. When this game is loaded I can see the title screen, and when I begin game I can see all game buttons, and I can drive Sphero 2 using the application. Everything works as expected except I cannot see any zombies or the red indicator around Sphero. No Fireballs either, even though the button to shoot them displays and fires correctly. A major disappointment. My device should be more than enough to play this game. Please fix.
