Mutant Roadkill (by Glu Games Inc) is a freemium game that is a take off on Zombie Highway with Temple Run turns and endless gameplay, zombie killing items, power-ups — and while this app is FREE — it may cost you some cold hard cash! If you have been playing iPhone or iPad games for any period of time you have played an endless runner game such as the infamous Temple Run. Zombie Highway is a take off on the endless runner, not new by any means to the app store, circa 2010, but the gameplay provides endless zombie killing — if you can survive. The corporate giant Glu Mobile has created a Freemium mash up of both games to create a decent, yet just okay iPhone and iPad universal game. The game has pretty good graphics and the objective is decent, but Glu being Glu has made the difficulty in this FREE game to the point where you have to either tediously play for hours and hours to earn in app currency/revenue to upgrade your vehicle or layout some real money to buy cash, which is also not a great idea — meaning: that for your money you don’t get a lot of in app currency to upgrade or purchase items.
I do like games like this, but the corporate feel to this game in the revenue model makes it less fun. First, this is not an original game app, so if you want the same experience play Temple Run and Zombie Highway at the same time — just kidding, may be a bit hard. Second, after playing you will quickly realize the difficulty is steep as well as the in app purchase cost, which made me feel taken advantage of while trying to get past the 4 mile mark. An added dig by Glu is that the first time you purchase a “respawn” it costs like $400 and it gradually rises so this game is designed to empty your pockets in more ways than one. My suggestion is purchase Zombie Highway, it is better, just without the turns. Be sure to watch the Mutant Roadkill iPhone video app review for a look at how this iPhone and iPad Games app plays.
