A cool concoction of lane-based defense and match-3 puzzle, this cerebral puzzle game is as fresh as the grey matter the undead crave. Four different kinds of zombies come in waves, hopping from brain to delicious brain. Your scientists are the only thing blocking their escape and the end of the world as we know it. Match brains vertically or horizontally to eliminate the monsters feeding on them. Rack up combos and you'll get items you can use to give you the edge.
There are four different areas infested with the spooky creeps, each with its own signature type of zombie to battle. Clear the stages to earn Zombucks you can use to unlock special items at the helpful ice cream truck. Challenge the unlockable Endless mode to see how long you can hold out against the full weight of the undead invasion. Collect all of the different scientists, and try your luck at the tough-as-nails Hard mode. In Zombie Match Defense, you either use your brains or lose them!
- Bizarre Enemies: Four different kinds of zombies are here, and they're hungry!
- Easy to Play: Match the brains in a row or column and send the zombies packing!
- Sweet Power-Ups: Unlock and use the Brain Freeze, the Crane, the Shotgun, and more!
- Endless Zombies: Challenge the Endless mode for the ultimate zombie rush!
- Hard Mode: Can you defeat these ultra-difficult stages?

Addictive but gets repetitive.
It's always thrilling when someone introduces a new idea into a genre. The game kept me addicted until the end of all the rounds, introducing new zombies every few levels. I couldn't stop playing (and luckily, I was on a long plane ride).
After that I completed the levels the just cranked up the difficulty by adding more zombies, which felt a bit lame.
Hopefully, more ideas can be introduced since the unique match 3 mechanism is really cool.
Goofy and addictive!
Zombie match defense is the best match-three puzzle game I've played in a while! The mechanics are deceptively simple so it's easy to pick up, but don't be fooled by that, you'll definitely need to do some quick thinking once you get 4 or 5 zombies out. Also, to my relief it is not like a majority of games in this genre that are designed by marketers to drain money from your wallet. Overall, a really fun, juicy game!!
I took a gamble buying this game after reading this guy's AMA on Reddit, but this is actually a great puzzle game that I highly recommend to anyone. It's extremely slick, and thoughtfully made. The difficulty ramps up at a perfect pace as new elements are introduced that require more and more thoughtful execution of your moves. Love it, very addictive; I look forward to future releases.
