Death Road to Canada

Developer: Madgarden

Publisher: RocketCat Games

Genre: Action, Adventure, RPG

Death Road to Canada
A sharp dungeon crawler with a neat zombie twist, Death Road to Canada has way more charm and brains than your average undead-blaster. Party management and tough decision making play a part in this compelling adventure.

Organ Trail: Director’s Cut

Developer: The Men Who Wear Many Hats

Publisher: The Men Who Wear Many Hats

Genre: Adventure, Retro, Shooter, Simulation

Organ Trail: Director's Cut
A delightfully, darkly comic survival horror adventure game that deftly parodies the altogether more wholesome and educational The Oregon Trail.

6
The Walking Dead: The Game

Publisher: Telltale Games

Genre: Adventure

The Walking Dead: The Game
There are three series of Telltale’s Walking Dead adventure games on the App Store. However, it’s worth treating them as a single entity, because they’re all about meaningful narrative choices and character development amidst all the undead carnage.

7

A shrink-wrapped version of one of the original zombie survival game big-hitters, Day Z. Mini Day Z offers simple top-down gameplay on a surprisingly sprawling randomised map.

8
Into the Dead 2

This sequel to PokPok’s superb first person autorunner focuses more on the action, with a heavier emphasis on gunplay. It remains a highly atmospheric zombie game, though.

9
Zombicide: Tactics & Shotguns

Publisher: Asmodee Digital

Genre: Card/board game, Strategy

Zombicide: Tactics & Shotguns
It’s not particularly involved or deep, but this boardgame conversion provides a healthy dose of light tactical RPG action featuring a bunch of brain-munching zombies.

10
Dead Island: Survivors

Publisher: Deep Silver Fishlabs

Genre: Action, Tower defence

Dead Island: Survivors
Rather than attempt to replicate the lavish first person action of the Dead Island console series, Survivors crafts a solid tower defence game with hack-and-slash action elements.

11
Infectonator

Developer: Toge Productions

Publisher: Armor Games

Genre: Casual, Strategy

Infectonator

12
Minigore 2: Zombies

Developer: Mountain Sheep

Publisher: Mountain Sheep

Genre: Shooter

13
Plants vs. Zombies Heroes

Publisher: PopCap Games

Genre: Card battler, Multiplayer

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes
The Plants vs Zombies series embarks on an unexpectedly accomplished parallel career as a card battler, retaining enough of its lane-defence heritage to remain true to the original.

14
Dragon Hills 2

A game that harks back to the early days of smartphone gaming, with a simple swoop mechanic and oodles of physics-based destruction in a zombie-filled world.

15
Dead Trigger 2

Developer: MADFINGER Games

Publisher: MADFINGER Games

Genre: Action, Shooter

Dead Trigger 2
This technically impressive, generously proportioned first person shooter is packed full of zombie head-popping arena action. One of the most instantly gratifying and cathartic games on this list.

16
Zombie Football

A neat twist on the runner genre that sees your American football player juking past hoards of the undead, utilising speed boosters and other environmental elements as you head for the end zone.

17
War of the Zombie

Developer: Van der Veer Games

Publisher: Van der Veer Games

Genre: Shooter, Strategy

War of the Zombie
‘XCOM with zombies’ is perhaps a tad simplistic, but that’s pretty much what we have with War of the Zombie. Lead your team of soldiers around a map blasting the undead in this deep strategy game.

18
AI Dungeon

AI Dungeon
AI Dungeon goes back to the text adventures of old, but employs AI to essentially make up an original adventure on the spot. And one of those themed adventures can be a rip-roaring zombie yarn.

19
Call of Duty Mobile (2019)

Developer: Tencent

Publisher: Activision Blizzard

Genre: Shooter

Call of Duty Mobile (2019)
It’s not inherently a zombie game, but Call of Duty: Mobile has its own zombie mode that’s pretty darned popular. Fend off waves of undead attacks either solo or with up to three team mates.

20
Sonny

Publisher: Armor Games

Genre: RPG

Find out more about Sonny

21
The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land

Developer: Next Games

Genre: Action, RPG

22
Unkilled

Publisher: MADFINGER Games

Genre: 3D, Shooter

Unkilled
Let’s not kid ourselves here – Unkilled is essentially another addition to the Dead Trigger series from Madfinger. You’re still legging it around small maps blasting the undead in first person. Not that we’re complaining.

23
Plants vs Zombies 2: It’s About Time

Publisher: PopCap Games

Genre: Tower defence

Plants vs Zombies 2: It's About Time
It’s not as good as the original, thanks to a poorly calibrated free-to-play structure, but Plants vs Zombies 2 remains a handsome and varied tower defence game.

24
Radiation City

Publisher: Atypical Games
Radiation City
It’s more than a little janky, but few mobile survival games place you into a brutal post-zombie-apocalypse world quite as convincingly as Radiation City.

25
Guns ‘n’ Glory Zombies

Publisher: HandyGames

Genre: Shooter, Tower defence

Guns 'n' Glory Zombies

The popular Guns’n’Glory tower defence series gets an undead twist, as you take control of four gung-ho girls fighting back a zombie outbreak.
