While everyone is excited for the upcoming Zombieland sequel which took a decade after the first film, everyone has a chance to meet all the beloved characters again through this new game from Sony. Zombieland: Double Tapper is an Idle RPG game inspired by the film franchise. It is officially launched by Sony Pictures as part of the promotion for the upcoming movie which amazingly shares the same name. Zombieland: Double Tapper follows the journey of our beloved characters as they face the horde of brain-eating zombies from one city to another. The goal is generally to build your ultimate team to survive. If you are an avid fan of the movie, Zombieland: Double Tapper mobile game is something you should definitely explore.
Much like in the movie, the game is set on a post-apocalyptic American universe. An outbreak caused humanity to nearly extinct and turn everyone into zombies. You and your friends are few of the remaining survivors and you must explore the city to scout for more survivors and kill as many zombies as possible. As what mentioned above, Zombieland: Double Tapper is an Idle RPG which means, the game can work perfectly even without constant interaction from the players. Some of the features in the game work autonomously but you still have to manually interact for better and quicker progress.
The mechanics of the game are very simple and easily manageable. As soon as the game starts, it prompts you right away to the battlefield. Zombies will approach from the far right side of the game screen while your characters will arrive from the opposite side. Each character has weapons (both primary and secondary) and they will attack all approaching monsters automatically. You can, however, tap the monsters to inflict direct damage to them, hence the title double tapper. Your team will explore from one location to another until they defeat all the bosses.
Wander Around Zombieland
Interestingly, the game remains faithful to the franchise. Take note that this is not a fan-made game but an official mobile game published by Sony with cooperation with developers Tilting Point and Metagame Studios. The characters from the movie will get their very own animated version of themselves. Starting characters like Billings, Columbus, Houston, Helena, Springfield, and Nevada were all inspired by the actors who were part of the franchise movie. So expect to see a resemblance to Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin and even Emma Stone.
After clearing one city, you will explore all nearby locations by clearing as many zombies as possible. Much like most Idle game, the upgrade plays an essential tole in Zombieland: Double Tapper. To maximize your team’s survival, it is very important to upgrade their attributes, their weapons, and their skills. You can also equip them with Trinkets which you can loot from various sources. You can earn them by defeating giant bosses or through mission rewards and daily bonuses. Trinkets come in different categories and rarities. Each has its own special effect that can make your entire team more efficient in every battle.
Unlock Heroes and Build Your Ultimate Team
One of the best parts of Zombieland: Double Tapper is the overwhelming number of heroes you can unlock. As you progress to higher levels, you will eventually meet new people which you can recruit to your growing team. Players can also obtain them through mission rewards and daily bonuses. Each hero comes with different attributes, different weapons, and different skills. Once you have earned enough money, you can upgrade the weapons individually for bigger damage rate. If you get enough Skill points, you can visit the Skill tree and upgrade their particular skill set.
Speaking of skills, each character possesses their own unique skills. Some are excellent melee attacks while others are good for long-range. There are also healers and buffers that boost the team’s health and strength respectively. Overall, Zombieland: Double Tapper is not just about surviving but building your ultimate team. You can only recruit or send four heroes for every mission so make sure to pick them wisely. Make sure to constantly upgrade them and equip them with the best weapon to maximize your chances of surviving.
