Al Jackson, the editor at the new Android gaming site Hardcore Droid, assigned me a review of “Rebuild”, an indie game about the zombie apocalypse. I’m not really a zombie fangirl, but I found a lot to like in this game:
I don’t do zombies. Sure, I have some affection for the novel World War Z, but zombie games are almost entirely tower defense with extra gore and body parts. Not appealing at all. But Rebuild, an Android game by Sarah Northway, is more of a post-apocalyptic city builder. Sure, there are zombies, and they attack survivors at night, but the overall objective is to build a thriving civilization, not to pop undead into ever-more-realistic piles of guts.
