Zombie games come a dime a dozen on the App Store, but few stand out as truly great games. Alive 4-Ever avoids falling in with the many other mediocre releases in its genre through its application of an excellent control scheme, a fun upgrade system, and a surplus of content to keep players happy for a long time. The game is set in (naturally) a post-apocalyptic world that has been ravaged by the undead. As one of several unique special forces characters, your goal is to drop in, rescue some survivors, collect vaccine samples, and kill a ton of zombies. The game is split up into three modes: survival, horde, and story. Survival mode and horde mode aren't actually all that different, as they both require you to stay alive as long as possible while fending off a never-ending zombie attack. Horde mode differs from survival mode in that it breaks up its action into multiple objective-based rounds.
The real meat of Alive 4-Ever is the story mode, which is separated into 30 different levels, each of which gives players a goal along with an optional "challenge objective" which can be completed for extra experience points. Players will level up based on the number of zombies they kill or missions they complete in story mode, and various stats and weapons can be purchased with the "ability points" and money that is earned with each level gained. If you're going to buy Alive 4-Ever, make sure to convince a friend to do the same, as wi-fi/bluetooth multiplayer is just too much fun to pass up.
