Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.
In Zombie Lane, the unthinkable has happened: the dead have risen and it's up to you to ensure the safety of your fellows. Actually, it's not that unthinkable, because several people have, in fact, thought up this concept. At any rate, this game does not just involve blowing away zombies with your shotgun; you also have to rebuild your home, plant food, restore the neighbourhood, reunite with your dog and spouse and make sure those pesky undead don't come knockin' at your door. It's a heady mix of action combat and village management, with additional avatar and weapon customisation to help make the game truly yours.
