Zombocalypse Ready: Zombies, Run!

 

Our next installment of our Zombocalypse Ready is a nifty little app that may help you train for the day when it’s a grueling mission just for the basic food or water you need to survive. Have you ever gone for a jog, either on the treadmill or anywhere and imagined being chased by zombies to motivate yourself? Zombies, Run! is an app available on the Apple App Store that you can use to intensify your daily jog by simulating a dire situation in which you need to collect supplies for your surviving team.

Your mission is to run around in this virtual world and collect items like ammo, food, and medicine while hearing the zombies running behind you making terrifying noises, all the while you could be in the safety of the gyms treadmill. As you progress through it begins to tell you a story of how the zombies came to be and the future of what may happen. Only you can help bring salvation to some of the feeble few left during the outbreak.

You can visit their site here.
