App To Look For: Zombies, Run!
I am looking forward to Halloween already, so why not start off the season early with a fun app (all-year-round) that fits the bill. Alright, alright, I know that Autumn just began – but I need to tell you guys about this App To Look For, Zombies, Run!, by Six to Start.
We use Apps to keep track of things, record and share moments, waste mindless hours during a commute or when you should be sleeping.. but a big category for Apps is health and exercise. That is where Zombies, Run! comes into play.
You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan – they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!
Zombies, Run! started as a kickstarter back in 2011 and was supported by over 3000 backers! In February 2012, the app came out and became the #1 fitness app by the end of the month! It keeps you on the ball, aware of your progress, can track your GPS route, listen to your favorite music, and most of all – it makes running fun.
– Zombies, Run! works anywhere and at any speed. You can jog in a park, run along a beach, or walk along a trail. It even works on treadmills!
– Choose your own custom playlists before you start running: the story unfolds in between your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.
– With our optional ‘Zombie Chases’ mode, you’ll need to increase your speed and work up a sweat if you hear zombies on your tail.
– With our new ZombieLink Social feature, you can keep tabs on how your friends are doing online, and also share your runs on Twitter and Facebook.
In April of this year, Six to Start and Naomi Alderman announced the release of Zombies, Run! 2, the latest installment of the bestselling smartphone fitness game where your real-world running is your greatest weapon against the zombie horde. Over 60 new missions will be released during Season 2, and the app has beefed up its gameplay and graphics.
