Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies is the first CoD title that hits Android
Call of Duty is the current most-played FPS in all platforms. Android couldn't be an exception. Activision has decided though being brave launching first, one of the spin-off of its saga: Black Ops Zombies. In this version, already introduced in previous Black Ops, users still take control of soldiers of Western armies. However, this isn't about a war between nations but a cataclysm that confront humans and the undead.
If you've ever played this part of the saga you know already how it works: two soldiers (you and your partner) are stuck on a rundown house surrounded by zombies that will approach you by waves. Your goal is to survive by shooting them, repairing windows, doors and other access points and switching weapons to be more effective. Above all you have to survive and guarantee that your partner does too.
First thing that surprised us is how smooth the game runs even on medium-end devices (Tested on a SGS I9000). That's sweet specially when the graphics are such high quality. You'll noticed that developers have focused on making it mobile-native regarding controls: intuitiveness and accuracy. You can set it at your whim from settings.
There are two game modes: single player, which is like a campaign mode where you can choose different characters and stages; and CO-OP Multiplayer which makes a WLAN game using a WiFi connection. Gameplay is the same in both cases.
Besides that, there's a Player Profile section where players can view their statistics like best score, highest wave and favorite weapon. Likewise, there's also a level bar, rank and points to reach next rank.
When things are well done we have to admit it. When a game is highly playable, has stunning graphics and mobile-native controls as well as smooth performance even on medium-end devices becomes a must-have. CoD Black Ops Zombies is well-crafted game whichever way you look at it.
Adapted from the best-selling console hit and built specifically for tablets and smartphones, Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies delivers fan-favorite, heart-pounding maps: Kino Der Toten, Ascension, and Call of the Dead: Director’s Cut, as well as “Dead-Ops Arcade,” a 50-level zombie gauntlet that provides the ultimate undead challenge for fans of Call of Duty’s signature zombie warfare.
Play solo or join a team of up to 4 players via Wi-Fi as you mow down hordes of zombies using a variety of weapons and perks only available in the Call of Duty zombie experience.
And don’t just take our word for it; here is what critics think of the game:
•“Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies is a must-have for any Call of Duty fan and for everyday gamers alike.” – Mashable.com
•"As far as the whole package is concerned, I adore the Dead Ops Arcade mode and feel it adds significant value to the $6.99 price tag" – Destructoid
•“Dead Ops…a perfect fit for the mobile platform.” – G4 TV online
Players can also opt to enhance their experience and get out of a jam with the in-game CoD Point System. With six tiers of in-app purchasing options to choose from, Zombies fans will be able to take their experience to a whole new level by unlocking additional areas and securing better weapons in much less time. Please note that CoD points are only applicable in single player.
•Buy CoD points in the Main Menu to use when you run out of earned points in-game.
•CoD points can be spent on anything in the game such as reviving, opening doors, weapons, perks, and the mystery box but are only used when you do not have enough earned points.
•Revives can also be bought with CoD points if you die without the revive perk, although the three revive limit still applies.
•Note: Your CoD points will be lost if the app is uninstalled from your device.
Sure, earning Achievements and Point-Multipliers is nice, but to survive these Co-Op Maps, you’ll need friends as much as you’ll need firepower. Lucky for you, not only will the weapons and perks you love from Call of Duty lie at your fingertips, you can join with up to 4 players via Wi-Fi to play mulitiplayer.
As if that wasn’t enough, Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies also includes “Dead-Ops Arcade” mode, an arcade-style top-down shooter perfectly suited for mobile combat vets. Unlocking the mode is easy—simply find the four missing coins in the game’s menus.
And don’t forget to download the Call of Duty: ELITE Mobile App for an inside-edge on your console Call of Duty Multiplayer experience. Head over to the Google Play Store for all the grisly details on both Apps.
