It’s time to put the pedal to the metal to flip your way through various obstacles courses, while taking out zombies as you go in Zombie Road Trail Trails. It’s a pseudo-sequel to Zombie Road Trip, which launched at the beginning of 2013 to offer an endless driving affair. The Zombie Road Trip Trials variation introduces a level based set-up that ties into the Trials style with physics based courses to conquer. Each level includes varied land to drive on that introduces big jumps, the ability to pull off flips, and a focus on nailing landings on alternating terrain for speed boosts. The biggest differentiator to Trails is the inclusion of zombie obstacles that you either run over, and/or shoot down.
Zombie Road Trip Trials isn’t simply level based, as each level includes three sets of three challenges. There are 480 total missions to complete, spread across the different levels through multiple environments. The missions are what truly make the game stand-out, as they offer unique challenges to change the way you play a level. At the beginning, it’s as simple as pulling off a couple of backflips, killing all zombies, or finishing in a certain amount of time. You will unlock missions that require you to combine specific flips, and zombie kills in the same move, and other particular missions. The missions offer up a great replay factor as you can play the same level completely different when aiming for the various missions.
What really makes the missions matter is the core gameplay mechanic, which is simply enjoyable. It’s highly entertaining to pull off flips with big air while blasting through zombies, all at high speeds. The game nails that Trials style with a great physics engine, but infused with a unique set-up, and over the top styling. There’s finely crafted cartoon artwork, and everything is designed to keep you going from mission to mission. There are plenty of other features including seamless ghost integration, online multiplayer races against your ghost, and tons of unlockable cars, weapons, and upgrades. The game is free to play with simply ads, or the ability to upgrade faster, but it’s all completely optional.
Zombie Road Trip Trails (Free, Universal) is jam packed with engaging entertainment that you will no doubt enjoy.
