Zombies, Run!, an app which gamifies your daily jog, is making its way from iOS to Windows Phone.
Running sessions are given extra spice with missions through zombie infested territory to gather supplies for other survivors. Players are rewarded for their success in missions by getting access to further segments of the fully scripted audio story, written by Alderman. The app contains more than 30 missions, each lasting 20-30 minutes.
The app, created by Six to Start and author Naomi Alderman, is also getting a new ZombieLink service that enables users to more easily view and share their runs online, as well as analyse their fitness history and replay favourite zombie chases.
The app is now available on Android from the Google Play market, and will arrive on Windows Phone Marketplace later in the month for $7.99. It features secondary live tiles which allows runners to jump right into their current run and easily view their total distance and time at a glance.
"We’ve had literally thousands of emails and tweets asking for Zombies, Run! to come to Android and Windows Phone, so we’re incredibly excited with these launches and the new features we’ve included, like Live Tiles for Windows Phone and improved text-to-speech for Android," said Adrian Hon, the chief executive at Six to Start.
