Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
Run ‘em Zombies Over!
C’mon. Pack your bags, grab some chocolate and mints, turn off the gas to the stove, and make sure the dog’s fed. Today we’re going for a nice drive… over zombies! Ha. Terrible jokes aside, if you are on the lookout for a good ol’e hit-and-run game, you may like Run ‘em Over.
Developed by XDA Forum Member frikec, Run ‘em Over is a side-scrolling 2D game where you basically ‘drive through a zombie apocalypse,’ as the developer puts it. And it’s surprisingly quite fun. With game play much in the vein of the previously introduced ‘time waster’ (in a good way) Bad Roads, instead of trying to deliver crates of ducks, this time you have to traverse yourself and your beat up vehicle over roads that desperately need some government funding. This is all done while running over any stray zombies that may have gotten in your way. With a somewhat exponential pace of game play, starting off with some sort of ancient car, you will be able to earn enough cash to upgrade your vehicle in terms of speed, acceleration, handling, and fuel capacity. And with all this, some appropriate rock music accompanies you on your pleasant road trip.
It’s compatible with Android versions 2.2 and newer, and is free from either the Play store, GetJar, and SlideME. With an active developer behind a game that does a great job wasting time in a good way, you may want to give Run ‘em Over a look. More details and downloads can be found in the original thread.
