When it comes to zombie games to be played on your Windows 8 tablet or even Windows 8 desktop system, there’s plenty to choose from. However, there are also quite a plethora of spam and “ugly” apps and games you need to avoid. Below we feature 5 of the best zombie games to be played on Windows 8.
Into the dead is one of the latest zombie games to have hit the Windows Store for Windows 8 users, but it is definitely one of the best to download and install on your Windows 8 tablet. As you can see in the above screenshot, it comes with amazing graphics and intense gameplay.
In a world overrun with the Dead, you have survived… but for how long? Into the Dead throws you into the gruesome world of the zombie apocalypse where there are no second chances. Do what you have to in order to stay alive, keep moving as fast as you can, and protect yourself by any means necessary. When the Dead are rising, run!
We have featured the Zombie HQ game in the past, as well, as part of our collection with the Best 18 Windows 8 games to play. The game is filled with hours of endless fun as you use shotguns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, machine guns, flamethrowers, chainsaws, broadswords and even more to kill those evil zombies.
The city seems strange these days. All the bars shut down, nowhere to get a drink and relax…And these damn zombies everywhere you turn! Already killed so many of ‘em but they just keep on coming. Only good zombie is a dead zombie. Good thing there’s plenty of guns around. Still, wish there was some place to take it easy for a while. Some place up high where a fella could catch a break from bashing zombie skulls. You know, a “Zombie HQ” of sorts…
Another Windows 8 game with great graphics, Awesome Zombie Sniper is a must-download if you love zombie games. You get to choose between three different sniper rifles to kill zombies and what’s fun, the Gangnam Pack will actually make zombies dance!
Zombies everywhere! Survive against increasingly large waves of zombies using an arsenal of weapons in this beautiful first person shooter. Collect credits and achievements and scavenge the levels for ammunition and medipacks. Zombies can be fought in three amazingly detailed levels – a beautiful autumn field, a busy downtown city area and a lonely forest.
Definitely not a cheap game, but it looks to be the best and most advanced one to choose from this list, of course, if you want to pay 10 bucks for it. In the story mode there are 31 missions to play, along with Epic Boss fights. There are also 13 different vehicles to drive including a firetruck, bulldozer or even a tank.
Insane mix of cars, speed, explosions, blood and zombies! Fight through an epic narrative campaign or test yourself in the Slaughter and Blood Race modes. Engage huge bosses, save survivors, drive crazy vehicles such as a bulldozer, fire truck or even a tank and smash everything in your way. Take part in the Blood Race tournament – chase other cars and take them down without mercy on brutal racing tracks. Jump into the Slaughter mode and survive as long as possible on specially crafted arenas.
Released by Microsoft Studios, Zombies!!! is about surviving a Zombie-infested town. This is also not a cheap game, but, at least there is the trial version available so you can try out the game before buying it to see if this is the best zombie game for your Windows 8 tablet.
Zombies!!! puts you in the middle of the action in this video game adaptation of the hit board game. In order to escape the ever advancing zombie horde, players must use a combination of wits and brawn to be the first to the heliport and certain escape. The only problem is, the zombies are everywhere, they appear to be very hungry and your opponents would really prefer if you didn’t escape. However, there’s no need to take this horde on your own. The Windows 8 game allows up to 4 other human or AI players to join in on the fun. AI players can be chosen from 10 different characters, each with a unique play style.
