While a lot of companies consider pre-launch publicity an integral part of iPhone game publishing, Activision prefers otherwise. Out of the blue, (or out of the dead more likely) this titan of the entertainment industry released Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies – the famous and hugely popular level for Call of Duty: World at War. Why am I saying this? Well, because they released it for the iPhone!
With the iPhone and iPod Touch now widely considered as THE mobile gaming platform, most of the major game publishers – save for Activision (Call of Duty and Tony Hawk series, among others) - have a presence at the App Store. Well, you can finally add them into the mix as Activision have dropped the Z-bomb with their release of Call of Duty: World At War: Zombies.
Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies brings the classic Call of Duty: World at War zombie-slaying game mode to the iPhone™ and iPod® Touch. Featuring the original zombie map “Nacht der Untoten” (Night of the undead), fight to survive in the barricaded bunker where it all began – and you can bring along your friends to help push back the endless waves of attacking zombies.
It should be noted that this isn’t a full blown or all new Call of Duty, rather, it is based on the bonus zombie mode found on CoD: World at War. The great news though is that not only can you blow up ‘em zombies, but you can do it together with up to 4 players in Wi-Fi multiplayer mode. Stay tuned as ChiffaN will be reporting back shortly with his review.
