Zombies Run App – Will make you Run, Literally
I have to confess, I love watching Zombie flicks, it’s just something that would make you wonder what if? If people start turning into zombies and chase after you, would you run? The hell, I would, I bet even the laziest unfit person would run fast not to be eaten by Zombies. Here’s a cool new app that would simulate that feeling but minus the zombies, Zombies Run App.
Zombies Run App is a smart new app that is for Working out and play a game at the same time. How it works is that it tracks your movements either via GPS or accelerometer, and as you go further the story slowly unfolds. You don’t need to do anything but focus on your workout and it moves the story with you.
You become one of the runners (scavengers / errand boy / etc.) for your city (somewhere in the UK), where you do missions to help people in it. It tracks your speed and distance run, and the coolest thing I found about it is the zombie chase feature. It’s somehow like a way to do interval training, Zombies run app will tell you that Zombies are after you so you have to run fast / sprint to get away (you could die in the story if you didn’t run fast enough). Oh and not to forget, you can even play your own music while running and it will automatically fade or pause when there’s a story line and you can build up your own base with the supplies you collect in every mission.
Zombies Run App is available in the following Gadgets:
- iPod Touch (No Zombie Chase)
- Android (Available Spring 2012)
I actually enjoy and use zombies run app very often, it just makes you want to take one more step further. The creators of this app are absolutely genius, a good workout and makes you work harder (zombies chasing you, who wouldn’t?!). I highly recommend this app for everyone to try out. I can’t wait to have more stories or more versions of this type of app. By the way, make sure that the place you’re running at is safe (clear of cars or things) and enough room for you to run around.
Here’s a video of what Zombies Run App is all about:
