Zombies on a Plane sounds ridiculous. And it doesn't stop being ridiculous. And that's what I love about it.
You're a pilot of a commercial flight, but as luck would have it, all your passengers have been infected and are now undead.
Being idiotic zombies, the passengers start to climb to the outside of the plane to take it apart. But you can't have that, so you tilt, flip, and barrel roll the plane to shake them off.
It's a game to see how long you can survive and how many zombies you send to splat back on the ground.
As ridiculous as Zombies on a Plane is, where its silliness comes to a halt is in the plane's realistic physics and flight dynamics.
You can't just barrel roll a jumbo jet with ease. And as the zombies pick the plane apart, you'll have to deal with the engine and rudder getting damaged.
Zombies on a Plane will be taking off on PC and iOS on March 28th. More information about it can be found on its website.
