Judge Dredd Vs. Zombies Shambles Onto Mobile Devices

Judge Dredd Vs. Zombies Shambles Onto Mobile Devices

It's been nearly a decade since the last Judge Dredd videogame. Now he's back, killing zombies on the go.

Judge Joseph "I Am The Law" Dredd has arrived on iOS devices, but his new game may not be what you expected. Instead of roaming throughout Mega-City One and arresting/passing judgment on various criminals, it turns out that Dredd is running around levels and handing out lethal justice on the zombies running amok.

Based on the trailer, the game is pretty reminiscent of Smash TV, thanks to its top-down graphics and multi-directional shooter gameplay. Instead of being on TV, though, you, uh, judge the undead (read: shoot them) and "stop zombie crime" (read: shoot them some more). Other than that, it's hard to tell what the game's about, though it looks like you'll have a crazy amount of weapons to choose from.

I'm kind of holding out hope that this proves to be better than it looks, since the trailer doesn't show off any storyline. Maybe the Dark Judges appear later on in the game (like in Judge Dredd: Necropolis), or something else adds some fun to the overall experience. You can download the game from the App Store for $0.99.

Also, seriously? "Zombie crime"? Is that when they steal your wallet before they eat your brains?

Another fucking thing involving zombies. This is almost getting as bad as all the teenage vampire porn that is available in every medium.

I'm disappointed that they didn't use Stallone's "I AM. THE LAW!" voice. Other than that I like the look of it. Not sure how fast the "funny quips" might run out though!

Well, I don't really see what a defender of the law and a guy who shoots criminals has in common with zombies, but, well, it's a game about shooting zombies, for the road! What's not to like?

NOMBIES! NOM ON THIS! *BLAM*

(Shall I even bother add input about the growing zombie singularity Yahtzee warned us would overtake video games some day?)

It seems everything must incorporate zombies these days...

-_-

I like top-down view shooters. They're a lot of fun, especially on portable devices.

Can we get a serious and well done Judge Dredd game for once. is that so hard to ask for.

I dont claim to be an expert on the law of Megacity One, but I would have thought that humans would only be subject to the law when they were living...wheres Dredds jurisdiction here?

Oh right, he IS the law...

I quite liked the first scene of the Gamecube "Dredd vs Death" version, where you busted all the perps that were protesting outside the Judge HQ...before the game just became silly and you were fighting every zombie/rabid human from every game, ever.

Doesn't really appeal to me. Nice try, but Judge Dread fighting zombies for no good reason is just not my "cup of tea". I'd actually be more interesting in him fighting actual criminals.

I can say that I would buy a GOOD Judge Dread game. Something similar to what they did with Human Revolution. Good game-play and combat with some interesting conversation bosses thrown in.

I think it could be real fun asking a perp questions and "judging" him in that kind of game.

We've yet to get Sim City with Zombies.

Where you build a city and occasionally have zombie outbreaks. As opposed to the aliens and godzilla of yester year.

Anywho, the last judge dredd game I played was on the SNES. Rubber bullets bouncing off of walls is all I remember.
