Every boy has dreamed of fighting through a zombie apocalypse. Every boy, at a certain point of his life would’ve also fantasized about becoming a soccer legend. But what happens when you put them together?

Undead Soccer isn’t quite what the title might suggest. No, you do not take control of 11 waddling zombies trying to kick a ball around. Heck, they’d probably end up trampling and flattening the ball instead. In this game, players slay zombies but because chainsaws and machine guns are way too mainstream, you use a soccer ball to score your kills instead.

There’s the overly-exaggerated storyline of a zombie pandemic striking as the player enters the changing room during a soccer match. Almost instantaneously,  the world becomes zombified and random monsters start attacking the player.

The game works on the same basis as flick-to-score soccer titles, but instead of scoring goals you flick soccer balls at monsters, inflicting damage and eventually destroying them. Kill wouldn’t be too apt a word to use in this situation, would it? Of course, it amazes me to how unrealistic the game is given how hard the balls are launched. But then again, it’s all part of fantasy isn’t it? The game starts off at a slow pace for newbies to easily pick it up, before barraging players with waves after waves of zombies. Undead Soccer thus brings in a little tactical game play as players will thus have to decide on priorities where the respawning of soccer balls take time but zombies are seemingly infinite.

Of course, twists and gimmicks like power ups that allow for chain lightning to be conjured for destroying zombies. As a free app, expect in-app purchases to tempt you frequently as well as annoying advertisements that keep getting in your face. Cheesy plot aside, this game is definitely worth the download for casual game play.
