Description

Zombie Apocalift is a humorous take on the recurring zombie apocalypse theme: an unlikely group of characters fight for their survival inside an elevator.

The gameplay is very simple: hordes of zombies charge into the elevator from the top and both sides, with the three player characters facing each of those directions, attacking when the user taps/clicks on them. Each character has a health bar and the player loses the game if any of them dies.

There's also a global stamina bar that regenerates itself over time and gets depleted whenever the player characters attack, disabling them when it gets empty. This prevents players from spamming the attack controls and adds a tactical layer to the game.

Initially the player has only access to one level, but more can be unlocked as the user progresses in the game. Each level takes place on a different building and has a particular setting, such as a supermax prison, a secret military base, and a sushi tower. Each of these has its own enemy models and there are two boss fights per level, with unique tactics. There's also a special endless level, which randomly goes through floors of all the previously unlocked levels.

Just as with the levels, the player can unlock more characters beyond the initial three. They are very diverse and include Hatanaka-san (a samurai), Hellvis (an Elvis impersonator), Thorminator (a robotic Thor), and Mrs. Jones (an old lady with a walking aid as a weapon). Some characters have more health and attack power than others.

The character's stats and abilities can be temporarily improved by means of power-ups. For instance, medikits will heal a certain amount of their health, and steroids increase their attack power. A couple of upgrades is available for each power-up and there are also special upgrades such as the Stamina Doubler which doubles the stamina bar earlier described.
