Judge Dredd vs Zombies is an excellent shoot ’em up zombie thriller. The app features thirty levels of game play (3 episodes) containing four different types of zombie creations. Judge Dredd arms himself with one of 2 weapons to start, a MKII Lawgiver Pistol or a Widowmaker Scattergun. With the help of earned credits throughout the game, you also have the option of purchasing a Weptek Spitgun or a Hi-Ex Launcher. Much like similar games in its genre, each of the 4 weapons is completely upgradable to several different levels. You can also get seven equipment upgrades for protection purposes.
I came away impressed with Judge Dredd vs. Zombies. The single-stick controls are fluid and easy to master, while the destruction of zombies is as fun as usual. I have always appreciated games in this genre when you can play to earn cash/credits to upgrade your character gradually. The physical levels in the game remind me a little of the Zelda games, as you move room to room and the view is looking down on Judge Dredd. The game also gives multipliers if you can kill zombies consecutively and as fast as possible. If you have space and like zombie games, grab this while it is free.
