Defend the Farm From the Undead with Livestock vs the Undead for Android
Those pesky undead sure know how to ruin someone’s night. Luckily, with the aid of Livestock vs the Undead, a new game by XDA forum member pphillips001, you can use your farm animals to help keep these zombies at bay.
Tower defense games are always fun, and including zombies makes this game no exception! In the words of the developer:
We’ve just released v1.1 of Livestock Vs The Undead Lite, a free rts/tower defence game, onto the Android Market and Amazon Market.
This version incorporates huge improvements in both game-play and content over the first release – so please revisit if you saw the first one and found it lacking and let us know what you think.
The project development is largely driven by feedback, so all comments are welcome. We have many plans to implement and would be interested in how you would wish to see things progress.
It is our first game on this platform and sincerely hope you like what you see so far.
Be sure to continue on to the game thread to keep your undead in check!
