Burn Zombie Burn Now Available As Flaming-Hot Download On iOS!

Welcome To The Critically-Acclaimed PS3 Monster-Hit Set In Char-Grilled World Where The Undead Are Barbequed Undead!

San Francisco, March 12th 2015: Indie games publisher Kavcom is proud to announce that PS3® monster-hit Burn Zombie Burnby DoubleSix with more than 350.000 downloads is now available worldwide on the iOS® digital app store. Created by indie developer TickTock Games, this flaming-hot zombie killer is also available on Google Play™ and Mac® App Store.

The objective of the game is straightforward: keep Bruce alive, as he tries to keep Daisy alive, and get the highest score possible. Sounds easy, eh? It would be, except, opposing you comes a never-ending horde of rotting, stinking and stupid undead zombies just waiting to get pixelated. Thankfully, to help achieve this you have an arsenal of powerful, ultra-cool and incredibly tasty weapons at your disposal, such as bats, guns, chainsaws, lawnmowers (No, seriously!), and flamethrowers. The time has come to Lock-and-load and burn, batter, shoot, maim, blow up, mince, and obliterate as many zombies as possible before they turn Bruce into dinner. Oh, and just for the record, flaming zombies are faster and more dangerous than regular uncooked zombies, but burnt zombies drop better pickups and act as a score multiplier, so light ‘em up, score big, and start frying some meat.

Burn Zombie Burn is feature-packed: offering 6 infinite play areas, 10 distinct challenges and 3 unique gameplay modes, including free play, defend Daisy, and timed, do you truly expect anything more? How about a coffin full of in-game achievements, in-game tutorial, and super unlockable bonuses…

Burn Zombie Burn includes hilarious stinking zombie types such as dancers, exploders, infectious and fire-farting super zombies. And if the heat gets too hot to handle, you can use weapon combos to enable the big red button to trigger unique level events, and even upgrade your everyday TNT for increasingly destructive explosives and mines … Now go the distance and splatter those creeps!

The Bitmap Brothers’ Z, out now on iPad and iPhone!

Remastered iPad and iPhone enhanced versions of the classic action strategy title released today on the App Store through digital publisher Kavcom

The long-awaited 21st Century reissue of The Bitmap Brothers’ classic action real-time strategy title Z is finally unleashed today on the iPad by digital publisher Kavcom. Z The Game is a faithful and thoroughly modern reworking of the seminal Bitmap title, retaining its offbeat comedy and addictive real-time strategy game play, but adding a streamlined touch-screen interface for the iPad that offers players unprecedented smooth control of the two war-ravaged robot armies.

Z The Game for iPad and iPhone packs in the full campaign with 20 explosive levels, five planets, 30 minutes of cut scenes and full Game Center integration.

On its original release in 1996, Z: The Game was given 8/10 by EDGE Magazine, which commented that, “the computer rivals the best non-human opponents strategy games have ever seen…the attention to detail is remarkable,” while PC Zone awarded 92% and a Classic Award, saying the game was, “like Command & Conquer, only harder, more strategic and more intense.”

Z: The Game was developed by original creators The Bitmap Brothers (Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, Xenon) in conjunction with Kavcom, Peter Harrap (Monty Mole) and TickTock Games.

“It’s finally here, and I’m pleased to say that Z: The Game on iPad and iPhone is everything we wanted it to be,” said Managing Director of Kavcom, Tony Kavanagh. “We’ve built it from scratch for touch-screen, so it’s incredibly intuitive to play, but keeps all of The Bitmap Brothers’ unique style, humour and attitude. I’m sure Z fans old and new will just love it.”
