Innovation in apps:Zombie Minesweeper: A Love Story

Innovation in apps, that's what's needed to make the old new and the stale fresh. And that is just what Zombie Minesweeper does-innovates by taking something old and totally putting a new spin on it.

The oldest form of flattery through imitation I can think of is Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, adapted and given the bard's unique spin, the original Greek tragedy Troilus and Cressida was transformed. So , yes in a way I am comparing Frogtoss Games to Shakespeare but then why not, as their modern adaptation of the classic Minesweeper game is worthy of being called art indeed!

So I'm sure that Minesweeper needs no introduction ,but what does Zombie Minesweeper do then, that is so good?
Firstly it has character, an ever so cute lost and helpless little girl:

And Zombies-tons and tons of Zombies.
Crazed deformed lopsided, missing ear, bug-eyed, worm -eaten, drooling, snarling , smelly animal Zombies. Oh and explosions, lots and lots of explosions.

Playing out in a similarish vein to the classic the gamer must avoid stepping on the mines, indicated by the numbered warning squares around the hapless heroine and luring the mindless Zombies onto the mines:

By using markings on the ground, you must help her flag explosive mines and outrun hordes of brain-hungry Zombie wildlife. Fortunately, you have an assortment of weapons and tools to deal with the pesky Zombies in this mind-blowing soon-to-be-classic!

I couldn't agree more-the gameplay is lush and the game certainly has character to spare: A modern update on a superb classic game...with Zombies!
