Brainsss does not have an innovative gameplay. It has no innovative story line. But it mixes a standard story and a standard gameplay in a way that had not been done before. And who needs that when you have a very fun and polished game with zombies? Well, you have Brainnss.

In Brainnss you play a real time strategy game, where your goal is to convert people into zombies (by walking into them.) Of course avoiding the police – or more precisely, ambushing them and then attacking their backs – or any other gun-equipped non-zombie.

Gameplay is simple: choose your group of zombies (there’s a handy “split group” button always at hand) and tell them where to go. People will start running away from zombies, and as you know, people usually run faster than zombies. Best way is to play ambush every time you can, splitting your groups and moving through both sides of corridors. Of course there are times when you won’t be able to use your Brainsss with such effectiveness…

Oh, and I almost forgot. Intertwined among the levels are very fun cartoon-style drawings of the common life of a zombie couple. Amusing!

In short: Brainss is a fun and polished RTS game that will make you laugh a lot

Read the Developer's Notes:
Control multiple groups of zombies and guide them to victory with touch controls. Trap, chase, intimidate, and ultimately, convert those annoying humans.

Build a massive swarm of zombies and trash the human defenses. Careful some of the humans will fight back!

Play through lots of amazing, beautiful levels that include suburbia, hospitals, parks, airports, cities, and offices, to name a few.

Use your cunning, strategy, and on the fly decision making to catch them all!
