N.Y.Z. – After over a year in development this forthcoming first-person zombie shooter looks set to take the Appstore by storm. The game boasts great graphics, a formidable list of weapons, a sprawling single player adventure and an intriguing endless mode.
In story mode you progress through over 20 totally unique levels — ranging from the streets of NY, to the subway system, highways, rural farmlands, mountains, forests, graveyards, and more — earning cash along the way by killing zombies and saving survivors. After each level you have a chance to buy and upgrade from over 20 weapons and abilities, equipping up to 6 at a time to bring with you into battle.
“We are shooting for a simple to play game so casual gamers can jump right in, with lots of depth in the usage of weapons,” said the developers. “Closest game I can think of that NYZ plays like is Battle Bears, only with a 360 degree view, more enemies, and more strategy.”
iFanzine reckons any game with big enough balls to bill itself as “the greatest zombie game for the iPhone” is bound to be something special. Foursaken Media, are aiming for an end of Febuary release. In the meantime feast your eyes on this tantalizing b-movie inspired trailer.

Harking back to Sonic’s glory days, the game is a direct sequel to 1994’s Sonic & Knuckles and will feature a classic (2d) gameplay style. It will be available to download episodically later this year.
