The zombie apocalypse is upon us!

Mobile Apps
Welcome to Tap that App, I�m Jason Parker and this is the show where we cover the hottest apps in the mobile space. With Halloween just around the corner, this week we�re showing off our favorite Zombie games for the iPhone. Since just about everyone already knows about the popular Plants vs. Zombies, we're going to look at three other undead gaming hits. To get started, dual-stick shooter Alive4Ever has been around for a long time and is great on its own, but its sequel, Alive4Ever Returns, takes undead shoot-'em-up action to a whole new level. Start by picking from four different characters, each with different stats, and then set up your weapon load-out. Once you're dropped into the action, fight your way through rescue quests, boss fights, and an endless shambling horde of Zombies and other nasty critters. As you play, you'll unlock new weapons, skills, and attribute points to make each of your characters stronger. Once you've mastered blowing away zombies alone, you can work together in local coop multiplayer with 3 other players for team survival action. Both Alive4Ever and Alive4Ever Returns are each $2.99 at the iTunes App Store and we think both are worth every penny. If dual-stick shooters aren't your cup of tea, check out Zombie Highway. This unique and deadly driving game challenges you to drive as far as you can down a long lonesome highway while ferocious zombies try their best to make you crash. To drive for the longest distance, you'll need to tilt your iPhone to steer around wrecked cars, sideswiping them to knock the zombies to the asphalt. As stronger zombies appear, touch the red arrows onscreen to control your unseen gun-wielding passenger--another source of damage against the relentless zombie horde. Once you pass certain milestones in the game--like driving a specific distance, for example--you'll unlock weapons for your back-seat passenger that you can set up before each run. With your passenger properly equipped and a little luck, you'll stay alive on the Zombie Highway for�well, at least for a little while. Zombie Highway is a one-of-a-kind driving game in the App Store and goes for just 99 cents. While our first two zombie game picks will help prepare you for the coming undead apocalypse, the last game might be required playing for lasting in a zombie infested world. Call of Duty World at War Zombies gives you a graphically intense First person shooter perspective as you try to defend against an onslaught of slowly approaching undead. As you blow away zombies you'll earn money you can use to buy more powerful weapons you'll find in various locations around each map. You'll also be able to lift barricades to open up other areas of the map granting access to more weapons and more areas to defend. Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies has been out for awhile, but recent updates have added challenging new maps, more weapons, and more undead killing mayhem. If the solo game isn't enough action for you, you can also play multiplayer survival games locally or online. In online play, after a quick signup an effective match making system puts you together with other players so you can cooperate to fight the horde as a team. Call of Duty World at War Zombies plays like a console or desktop game, but will only run you $4.99 at the iTunes App Store. To sum it up, let's face it: We all know the zombie apocalypse is coming, it's just a matter of time. To stay prepared, tap any of these zombie killing apps, especially with Halloween fast approaching. That�s it for this week's show, if you have any suggestions, send them to Tap That App at cnet.com. I'm Jason Parker and we�ll see you next week.
