A few days ago I downloaded Zombies, run! I’d been meaning to get around to it for a while now so now that I’ve finally done it, I thought I’d write a little review!
The game aims to get you fit by turning your run around the park into a mission to escape zombies in a post-apocalyptic world.
You switch on the app, set off on your run in the real world and a voice over guides you through your mission.
I thought this app was really brilliant. First of all it was free! Secondly it really did keep me motivated throughout my run. It made the time go so so much quicker. I was only planning on going for a quick jog around the meadows and ended up running for a lot longer.
I will say that calling the app a game is a bit of an overstatement. Although you ‘pick up’ survival objects on your route you don’t actually have to do anything at all in the game except run. Plus Zombies, run! is almost impossible to lose.. although that suits me pretty well!
The app tracks your route and records your time which is pretty handy and you are able to play your music via Spotify over the app.
You can set Zombies, run! so that in parts of the game zombies are just behind you and you are forced to quicken your pace to get away from them. This is probably the best feature on the app and really forced me to push myself.
It’s simple to use and a good motivator to get outside and run. All in all, I would definitely recommend this app!
