Zombies, Run!

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

As a general rule I do not buy apps.  I've seen how many apps I have downloaded, used a few times, and forgot about forever so I made the executive decision that I would avoid paying for apps at all costs.

I broke that rule for one very important app, though.  Zombies, Run!

Yes.  Zombies, Run.

I had heard about this app back when I was running in Dublin but at the time didn't have a smartphone.  I was looking for some good running apps the other day when I suddenly remembered it.  I was pretty disappointed when I found out that it was $7.99.  Even if I was willing to spend money on this app I was not willing to pay that much.  I sadly read the reviews thinking how much fun I would have running from zombies when I saw someone mention a half off sale!  It was destiny.  I quickly bought the app.

I have only used it once so far but it was pretty awesome.  You are a runner for this post-apocalyptic community and you have to venture out on missions for supplies. Every once in a while a pack of zombies will start chasing you and you have to run faster.  You have a 'headset' that the control people talk through so they give you instructions for your mission, etc. It is really a great way to take your mind off of the running and before you know it you're done with the run and you just want to go on another mission (or maybe that's just me).

It's kind of terrifying the first time you hear the zombie noises.  They start of quietly and get closer and closer until you're almost running away in a panic.  Of course the first time I experienced this I ran quickly around a corner just as three children came screaming down their driveway.  I almost died right there.

If you are interested in this app I would just tell you to not use it while running with a dog.  I had Mac out with me and let me just say that dogs do not care if zombies are chasing you. We got killed twice because of his overactive bladder.
