A unique kind of Zombie game that you can play on your Android device, Zombie Gunship features a real existing gunship called an AC 130, an American gunship that serves the US Military and has been an effective ground support aircraft but now it Is your primary weapon against a large horde of Zombies.
In this game, you will experience piloting an AC 130 and serving as ground support for your troops, and eliminating all the threats that can harm or kill your ground troops.
During an operation or a mission, it will start by deploying your ground troops to the safest spot on the map, and as your troops start to advance and go through some buildings and loot some valuable items, you will serve as a pilot of the AC 130 and your goal is to destroy all the infected or zombies before it will harm your troops at the ground.
Aside from the zombies you always keep an eye on some ground defense from the building since it will attack everything that moves from zombies or even your troops, you should always be wise since you can use the ground defense on eliminating incoming zombies, but when the ground defense start to attack your troops you need to act quick and destroy those ground defense for your troops to survive.
The first thing you need to do is to from your ground troops since it will increase their survival in a mission, then you can be equipped your AC 130 with weapons of your choice like a machine gun, cannon, a missile launcher, and even a sniper, you can create a weapons combination of your choice depends on a mission and enemies that you will deal with.
In terms of graphics, it is cool, when you are piloting the AC 130 the view was monochrome just pure black and white just like what you see in the movie when they perform an airstrike from a gunship or a drone, the visuals are realistic that I can give it a rating of 4 out of five.
Zombie Catcher (Best Casual Zombie Games)
If you’re looking at a zombie game that is fun and not scary compared to other zombie games, zombie catcher is the right game for you, instead of the zombie are chasing humans and trying to eat their brains, in this game you will the one to chase and catch some zombies.
The gameplay is just easy, find some zombies, get your weapons, catch the zombies and turn them into a refreshing zombie shake and some delicious product, every zombie has its unique taste and every product has its profits, as your level goes higher you can catch more zombies and turn into a product to a much higher price, you can use the money on upgrading your weapons, gears squeezes, and other equipment.
For the graphics, the zombie catcher has a 2D style of graphics with a good visual, it is comparable to the graphics you can see on a plant vs zombies.
The Walking Zombie 2 (Best FPS Shooter Zombie Games)
A unique style of zombie game that I played on an android, the walking Zombie 2 has its kind of graphics where everything you can see is made of polygons, from tress, animals like dogs, chickens, zombies, and even the character itself.
The Walking Zombie 2 is an offline FPS game, where you need to battle and beat some zombies during a mission, in every mission that you’ve finished, you will get some bounty or reward and that rewards can be used to buy various items and gears includes guns, ammo, bandage, food and water that can help to clear some mission.
When fighting some zombies, you can free to move in the direction that you want while shooting, the only thing that it lacks for me is jumping, and there is no option to make your character jump.
The walking zombie 2 has automatic shooting options that instantly fire on a zombie or enemy when aiming your guns in the direction where your enemy is, which makes it easier to shoot and eliminate your enemy.
The graphics for me is okay, even though it’s not like some of the games out here, that has some vivid and realistic graphics, the walking zombie 2 graphics are highly acceptable for me and remind me of the game mine craft, its awesome, its unique and its a retro.
Zombie Hunter (Offline Zombie Shooter Games)
If you are looking for an endless zombie shooting game, then you might like the zombie hunter, where all you need to do is to shoot and kills a horde of Zombies.
There are a lot of guns that you can use to hunt down and kill zombies, at first you will get a submachine gun, and a shotgun, and as your level goes higher you can unlock more powerful weapons that can help you to deal with many powerful opponents.
The Game-play was just simply using your guns and some gear to hunt down or kill hordes of zombies that rushing towards you, aside from guns you can also use drones to help you during the battle, and if the enemy comes closer, using shotguns is the best options, since it has burst damage that can one-shot the incoming zombies.
Zombie hunter game-play is good the only thing that I don’t want is the lack of movement control and jumping that can help a lot in dodging an enemy attack.
The Graphics is quite okay, it has some good 3D graphics, although it cannot be compared to some of the best games with the best graphics out there, the zombie hunter has a strength of its own, the color is also good and the fact its free and offline zombie game I can’t complain much about it.

You can also search for some remaining survivors each survivor has unique skills that can help your settlement to grow, the walkers are not the only ones to be aware of but also some other clans that will try to take you down.
The graphics of the Walking Dead Survivors is unique, for me, it was the combination of 3D with a hint of comics-like graphics, the colors are also good the combination of its colors and its unique appearance find it more interesting.
