Contract Killer: Zombies, or CKZ for short, is a FPS with a lot of emphasis on sniper-mode which I really like. One major difference to CKZ versus other similar Glu releases – Contract Killer and Frontline Commando – is that in CKZ, your main goal is to protect other survivors, mainly one girl named Evelyn. It’s like one giant FPS escort quest.

Since this is a zombie game, I am not surprised by the amount of gore, but I would certainly only recommend this game to an adult or mature teen audience. I would also warn them a little about the cheese factor, as you can see in the game trailer below.
I would also say, “don’t let the cheese deter you, because the game is worth checking out”. CKZ has a lot fun in-store for mobile players. There isn’t a ton of weapon options unless you’re willing to fork out some real-world cash, but the weapons that are readily available are super-fun to play with. You start off with a long-barrel six-shooter, so you can pretend to be Rick Grimes. You move on to a pump-action shotgun and later, on to a scoped riffle. You play your way through a scripted story and but you can also take a break any time and play the Survival Mode.

The Survival Mode allows players to shoot up wave after wave of the undead. Similar to the story mode, players have unlimited ammo, but must constantly reload. It’s a great way to earn cash for gun upgrades.

This is a great mobile game for zombie and FPS fans alike.
