World War Z is the new game for touch platform based on the new upcoming movie with the same name by Paramount Digital Entertainment. The game is story based in which you find Doug initially sitting casually enjoying drinks when the trouble started in the shape of zombie apocalypse giving a kind of feeling as it happens in the famous TV show, ‘The Walking Dead‘. Most of us know that what players have to do in the zombie story based games. Whole game play revolves around the survival of your character Doug who has to make his way to survive zombies. In addition to his own survival he has to ensure survival of his son by doing anything he can do within the premises of game.

Game Modes in World War Z
There are two game modes for two different types of players in World War which make the app more versatile by engaging various kind of users.
Challenge Mode. First is challenge mode in which you start instant action by killing zombies without any background story. Challenge mode in World War Z game for the players who want to get into action without wasting time and the aim is just to survive as much as possible. This made is somewhat similar to the game ‘Left 4 Dead‘. In this mode be ready to face the hordes of un-dead approaching to eat you up.
Story Mode. The other mode of World War Z is story mode, which is like a typical story based game. In the story mode, Doug has the sole mission to exit his metropolis while fighting with zombie and reach Kyoto as soon as possible where his son has been attacked by his zombie mom. But before reaching there he has his own troubles to cater for. Initially he has only got hand gun followed by a crowbar. It is very easy to die in the game but if you play skill fully (which you will learn soon) the survival is not very difficult. When a zombie approaches towards you, you have to shoot him on his head in order to ensure death. If a horde of zombies attacks, the best option is to slow down their speed by firing towards their legs. But as a matter of fact, head shot is the only way to dwell long. When there is no active encounter taking place, you have the free time to roam around to explore, fight your way out, searching for health pack is also important and find various clues. Meanwhile you will also have to survive zombie attacks in some seriously tensed situations where the zombie encounter is very close. But at the same time, the game seldom gives to chance to be horrified.
Weapons You Need
If you want to keep using the handgun, you can opt for a 9 MM pistol, but for the shooters who are less accurately inclined, I’d recommend the sub machine gun.The item’s magazine size also upgrades with the buying of these weapons and reload the speed as well, these two vital elements are important for you to improve when a group of zombies are headed in your direction. The weapons you get can be upgraded as you continue to earn experience points. You have the option of unlocking virtual money via In-App purchases if you want good weapons earlier. But if the game costs around $4.99, it is not advisable for the developers to ask for In App purchases. However, having weapons from the onset of game will boost your performance.
Movement is never an issue but the controls that you need to target a particular aim ahead,specially when you need it the most. It may seem difficult, for instance opening filing cabinets, or picking up books that may get you bonus points and rewards you can use to purchase weapons and upgrades. You have the choice of touch/swipe controls or a virtual joystick. When using a crowbar to kill your enemy, you’re advised to make quick maneuver, which is to tap the screen to push the zombie away and swipe your finger down to strike the target. The game’s response time to your finger swiping is up to the expectations and it results in numerous deaths due to this erroneous flaw.
Worst of all, when lone zombies appear, the game lapses into a melee combat mode. Gluey, unresponsive controls and a block system that’s next to useless render these potentially exciting tussles nothing but joyless roadblocks. Initially you might be confused due to the default control settings as you look around by swiping while you move by tapping where you want to go. If gun is aimed at a zombie, you can automatically shoot but this can be changed from settings. It depends on your choice whether you like default or customized controls.
The World War Z game has wonderful 3D graphics along-with background music that enhance the game play during both modes mentioned above. The World War Z has the greatest visuals and lighting effects which look amazing on your Retina display devices.
