Back in May, it was revealed that George Romero would be lending his voice and likeness for the upcoming zombie strategy game, Zombie Squash. The game has now been released for free on the iPad and we have more details, including information on development for additional platforms and a trailer:
"ACW Games' Zombie Squash™ HD Free is the first official release of Zombie Squash™ at iTunes.
George A. Romero, the Godfather of All Zombies, provides the voice of the games' lead villain, Dr. B. E. Vil. Since his ground-breaking, trendsetting masterpiece, ‘Night of the Living Dead’ George Romero’s name has become synonymous with zombies. This time around, Romero creates a new cartoon-style voice in Zombie Squash™ as an evil scientist.
ACW Owner Attila Juhasz created Zombie Squash™, a world where vegetation has gone wild from evil experiments gone wrong. Zombie Squash™ is a tower defense style game where the Player is a rabbit named Jack Stompingtail who fires carrots, zucchini and other garden ammo at Dr. B. E. Vil’s horde of gorde onslaught. The player has to try and stop the Zombie Squash™ from taking over the world.
The soundtrack was written and produced by Billboard charting producer Roy Z, known for his stellar work with Judas Priest, Sepultura, Halford and Bruce Dickinson.
An extended full-paid version is being finalized with hopes of a mid-December release.
ACW Games is also developing versions for iPhone and iPod, and most major Android marketplaces, as well as the most popular Android devices, including Amazon Kindle Fire, B&N Nook Color, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Specific platform release dates will be announced early 2013."
