Food Zombies - A Tasty Top-Down Shooter Game

Over the past few years, I've written various blog posts covering my son's interest in programming.

Billy is a high school junior now, and his efforts over the past 4 years have spanned from creating interactive virtual playworlds and sharing LUA scripting code in ROBLOX, to cool programs for the TI-84 calculator, to Block Dude Evolved for iOS devices (a port of the classic TI-84 Block Dude game), to Prom Checklist for high school girls to keep track of all their prom-related details on their iOS devices, as well as Prom Checklist West, a branded version for Cherry Hill High School West where the proceeds will go to the school's "project graduation".

His most recent effort brings him back to his area of passion...that is game development for iOS devices (iPod Touch, iPhone, etc.).

Food Zombies is his craziest, most entertaining game to date.

While Food Zombies is a classic top-down zombie shooter, it's also good clean (and unique) fun since the zombies are fast food (in the form of pizza, fries, donuts, pies, etc.):

The power-ups are, naturally, good-for-you fruits:

And since this a shooter game, it offers many different weapons to satisfy even the pickiest food-slaying cravings:

I highly recommend the flame thrower. :-)

Anyhow, if you have an Apple iPod Touch or iPhone and you can't get enough of top-down Zombie shooter games, then I recommend you satisfy your cravings by giving Food Zombies a try.

Oh yeah, one final note for those Block Dude Evolved fans out there. Billy has just finished a major 2.0 version of the game that adds in a bunch of new features. The game is working its way through Apple approvals, so stay tuned!
