Electronic Arts' App Store face may be limited somewhat to AAA titles, like Tiger Woods PGA Tour and The Sims 3, but that doesn't mean they're not going for the three bucks and below market, which we've just learned, is the dominant market on the App Store as far as games go. For that, they've created a new studio - 8lb Gorilla - which now unveils its first ninety-nine cent game: Zombies & Me.
Set in the usual zombie-apocalyptic scenario, you play as Guy, and your job is to protect your granma who stays in her house, shouting stuff at you between intervals. You won't have Magnums and assault rifles like the other anti-zombie heroes do, in fact, you won't even get a Japanese paper fan to slap them across the face with. So how do you stop 'em? The military will be firing missiles all over the place, and you gotta lure your undead friends into the blast.
This US 0.99 game is due out on the App Store "very soon" and 8lb Gorilla is planning to release new games into the App Store on a near-monthly basis, provided that the App Store submission processes go smoothly.
