Quick Look At Today’s Free Amazon App: Zombie Rider

Up today free from the Amazon Appstore is a game called Zombie Rider. This isn’t a game that’s going to knock your socks off, but it’s free today right? Rider has an Excitebike feel, but you can’t create your own maps and the gameplay is a bit sluggish. You’ll accelerate by touching the bottom right of the screen and run over bumps and jumps trying to collect brain coins. The left side can be touched to break/reverse and tilting the screen will lean your rider forwards or backwards. The graphics look great and the game runs very well, but the sluggish speed of the game takes a bit away from the fun. I was waiting to really launch off some jumps, but that didn’t seem to happen. To each their own though, check it out yourself since it won’t cost you a penny today to play.

This game will normally cost you a $0.99, so grab it while it’s free from the Amazon Appstore. If not using the Appstore, you can grab the download here by entering your email address or phone number in the upper right hand corner for a download link.  Be sure to have the “unknown sources” box checked off under Settings—>Applications on your Android device. Hit up the break to check out some screenshots and let us know what you think.
