Need to motivate yourself to up your pace on your morning jog? If the bland coaching instructions from your exercise app just aren't enough to get you going, why not imagine you're running from a pack of zombies? That's the thinking behind Zombies, Run! a new iPhone app from games developer Six To Start.
Described an 'an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure', and co-created with a novelist, Naomi Alderman, the game places you in a Zombie story where you're given various 'missions' to escape from the hordes of undead. Along the way you can pick up survival supplies like medicine, batteries and ammo to protect yourself by growing your base of survivors once you get home. You're also invited to try to solve the mystery at the heart of the zombie apocalypse. The app is available for $7.99 in the iTunes store.
