04/08, 9:50am

Who doesn't love running through a high school full of zombies and guns?

Corridor Z by Mass Creation is about the last three living people in a high school full of zombies. Supposedly, there's a way to exit the building to safety, and the three characters must sprint through the hallways between fortified classrooms if they want to live.

Thankfully, they manage to not be totally evil when it comes to either of those things, leaving the player free to actually ... you know ... play and enjoy the game.

Techland's attempt to spruce up horror survival with parkour ends up a slow grind

The App Store is filled to the brim with easily accessible match-3s, word games, and resource management games, but is surprisingly lacking in more challenging titles. However, Age of Zombies: Season 2 by Halfbrick Studios, is an action-packed, top-down, bullet-hell shooter that requires a player to utilize quick thinking and fast reflexes in order to come out on top.
