We received some cool news from Halfbrick Studios that Age of Zombies is now available on the Android Market. There’s just one catch: It’s currently an exclusive launch title for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.
Age of Zombies is a dual-stick shooter featuring Barry Steakfries as he battles his way through time, defeating the hoard of zombies that have been released throughout history by the evil Professor Brains.
As Barry, you’ll have to run and gun your way through ninjas, mummies, cavemen and all manner of the undead as they shamble their way across five time periods. You’ll have access to a huge variety of weapons and explosives as you square off against massive bosses.
Age of Zombies makes use of the Xperia Play’s unique slide-out hardware controls to take full advantage of the action without getting your fingers all over the screen. As you can see in the embedded video below, it works very well. However, you should also note a quick demonstration of the touch screen controls. That’s because the game will soon be available to more Android devices over the next few weeks. So, don’t get your panties into too much of a bind. If you don’t have an Xperia Play but do have a little patience, you’ll get your turn!
If the name Halfbrick Studios sounds familiar, it’s because they’re responsible for the game Fruit Ninja on iOS and Android. It should also sound familiar because I had a chance to meet the guys from Halfbrick Studios when I visited their booth at PAXEast for a look at their upcoming game Machine Gun Jetpack. These guys have been putting out some terrific games and I’m excited to see what they have in store for the future.
