Tapscape - 9/10, A great game for fans of zombies, strategy games, or both!

N4G - Best iOS Games for 24 Oct 2013

iPhoneAppReview - 5/5 Stars, Swarm of the Dead was the hardest game to put down once I started playing it.

Swarm of the Dead is a fast-pace and epic real-time strategy game with a dash of humor.

Play as a Zombie Commander and stop the pathetic Researcher from coming up with the The Cure!

Wherever he escapes to, you follow. Send the Undead swarming into the safe zone where he's hiding his sorry butt. Crush his defenses, ego, hope... whatever counter measures he and the other human survivors can come up with.

You have at your command 9 extraordinary zombie units: Crawlers, Walkers, Spitters, Bubbles, Banshees, Manglers, Impalers, Ravagers and Destroyers.

There's even a 10th special zombie unit to be unleashed when you play with friends!

Each of these gentlemen (and lady) has a unique skill and quirk. Mix and match them to break down human defenses in a time and resource limited battle!

Swarm of the Dead is a combination of strategic planning and fast-paced combat. As the human population become desperate and adapt to the attack of your zombie minions, their defenses and counter-measures will also get bigger and stronger. Derive your strength from numbers or powers from Zombie elites to crush the last of humanity!

Yet another hero emerges amidst the chaos!

This time, it’s a multi-talented modern day Samurai who not only has the brawn to wield a real Katana, but also possesses the brains to spout Haikus (Japanese 3-line poems with 17 syllables) in everyday speech!

To counter the suave Samurai, a powerful Undead named “Muga”, a ninja with an unquenchable thirst for blood is conjured from… Things are going to get real “skelly” when you see what he’s capable of!

Just when you thought that the game can't get any darker and better, ancient Chinese Zombies rise from their graves along with Shaolin warrior monks who think they can be a beacon of hope to human salvation!

Ha! Seriously, what can the new heroes do to the Swarm of the Dead? Especially when we've just awakened the ancient Chinese zombies... Jiangshi!

Awesome game

Swarm is an amazing game that doesn’t get boring, the only dum part of the game is that it is 12+ and personally I think this game should be 6 or 7+ because there is very little if not no gore. And lastly once you get to the higher levels it is very useful to buy any of the zombies that cost money in the store, on levels with lots of people impalers are good, on levels with lots of buildings the destroyer or arty are good and on levels with lots of defense Zombie X I’d good. Personally I game this game five stars.
