Burn Zombie Burn! heads to iPhone, Mac

iOS platforms get death warmed up.

Undead PlayStation Network shooter Burn Zombie Burn! will be re-animated for iOS platforms this year.

Publisher Kavcom has dated iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch ports for a Q2 2011 release, following a May launch for Mac.

The downloadable shooter launched for PlayStation 3 in 2009 to favourable reviews. Despite a ubiquity of the undead in modern gaming, it enjoys a score of 76 on Metacritic.

Offering arena-based third-person action, the game's attraction lies in its diversely decorated waves of undead. Who can forget the dancing, tutu-empowered Ballet Zombie, the suicide-bombing Exploding Zombie, or the gargantuan fire-farting Super Zombie?

Last month Kavcom announced iOS versions of Z: The Game in a similar deal. Helping peel back the retro strategy title's facelift is programming legend Peter Harrap. He also revealed to Eurogamer ideas for a new Monty Mole game.
