7 Days Apocalypse

  • Generic Company Place Holder 7 Days Apocalypse

Last week, at the height of the mainstream media news panic attack, 7 Days Apocalypse came out saying you're slaying victims of the "S-Virus" (Swine Flu...get it?). I don't know if that's intentional, but my hats off to you, sirs, for quickly jumping on the panic wagon and poking fun at it. As for the game itself, it's one of those run-and-shoot quick hits like iDracula--one thumb controls where you move while the other aims the shot--that have you gunning down countless waves.

Two ways 7 Days stands out: A "Story" mode that throws a couple curveball scenarios at you (escort and defend a fleeing scientist, for instance) and an over-the-shoulder camera mode that makes for some interesting screenshots but makes it tough to play. Given an update spit-shine, this game can be fun. For now, it's a work in progress.

Note: This link takes you to the vendor's site. From there, you can follow the link to the iTunes App Store, where you can download the latest version of the software.
