World War Z iPad game

World War Z is a new iPad game, released today, based around the upcoming zombie hordes movie. This looks like the official app, published by the makers of the film.

Here’s a bit of its App Store description:

Get dropped into the middle of the World War Z chaos!
Featuring 28 visceral levels, intense combat, engaging puzzles, upgradable weapons and armor, and unlimited challenge mode. The World War Z game challenges you: play to survive.
In a race against time, travel the world to rescue your loved ones in the midst of the deadly Zombie pandemic.
• Action-packed story-based game
• Choose between different control schemes to suite your playstyle
• Over a dozen upgradeable weapons
• Listen to radio broadcasts and answering machines and read emails of other survivors
• Replayable challenge mode
• Chilling tense atmosphere
• Multiple forms of combat including hand-to-hand and ranged shooting
• Zombie Hordes

Sounds a lot like those movie trailers with Brad Pitt that I keep seeing on TV. I’m a huge fan of The Walking Dead and will definitely be going to check out the World War Z movie on its opening weekend. This isn’t my kind of game, just because I’m terrible at these sort of fast-paced shooter games, but I imagine it will be a popular App Store title.

It looks like the game is very resource intensive – here’s some of the advisory text on this from its App Store page:

NOTE: HIGH DEFINITION GRAPHICS AND ADVANCED FEATURES ONLY SUPPORTED ON iPad2, Latest iPad, iPhone4S, iPhone5, iPod 5th Generation!
NOTE: World War Z is a graphically rich game with advanced features. To OPTIMIZE your playing experience, you may want to turn off other apps before playing.

And here’s an App Store link for World War Z; it’s priced at $4.99 and is a universal app designed to run on both iPad and iPhone.
