Zombie HQ invades Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8, let the zombie hunting begin!

The undead have invaded our Windows Phones again, this time in Zombie HQ. Zombie HQ is the third action packed Windows Phone game from Rebellion, who also brings up Judge Dredd vs. Zombies and Guns 4 Hire.

In Zombie HQ you play the role of a survivor of a zombie apocalypse determined to regain control of your city. As you take out the zombie hordes, rescue other survivors and scavenge for weapons you can earn cash to upgrade your headquarters.  Zombie HQ follows the same challenging game play and fantastic graphics as the earlier releases from Rebellion.  It is definitely a game that'll keep you on your toes.

Zombie HQ has multiple missions to reclaim your city with zombie minions and bosses to battle. Some missions involve rescuing other survivors and airlift them to safety for bonus rewards.  All missions are guaranteed to have plenty of zombies to explode and cash to collect.

Additional features to Zombie HQ include:

  • Male and Female customizable characters with apparel ranging from body armor to beer hats. You can also swap characters in between missions.
  • Tons of weapons ranging from shotguns to assault rifles to flamethrowers.  You also have your handy-dandy spiked baseball bat to fall back on should you run out of ammunition.
  • Accessorize the Zombie HQ with arcade machines, jukeboxes, pool tables, hot tubs and defensive missile systems.

Graphics are intense, game play challenging and Zombie HQ makes a nice first impression.  The Windows 8 version of the game seems to be well suited for tablet use and the details of the graphics/animations really comes out on the larger screens.

We'll take Zombies HQ out for a test drive and get a full review up on the site shortly.  In the meantime, Zombie HQ is a free game for your Windows Phone 8 device. You can find it here in the Windows Phone Store (opens in new tab) and you can find the free Windows 8 version of Zombie HQ here in the Windows Store (opens in new tab).

  • Looks cool and Dredd vs Zombies was a high quality game. That said I wish this was something other than yet another zombie game. I wish the whole genre would just die. But I'm definitely going to give it a shot.
  • The genre is... dare I say... ALREADY DEAD.
  • Living dead.
  • watch World war Z...... imo its better than man of steel and makes u feel zombie genre isnt dead
    but undead
  • no support for wp8 512mb devices.......disappointed...
  • agreed :(
  • Downloading it NOW =)
  • Free for Win8 PCs? Might have to give it a try :) (still on a WP gen1 Titan) Will it end up being a freemium app?
  • It is free on wp8
  • Yeah, it's a freemium app... loads of in-app purchases, and you can only do a certain number of actions per day - so you either use your special gold bars to recharge quicker, which means you may have to buy gold bars, or or you just sit around waiting for your energy to recharge over time. I currently have to wait another 10-20 minutes before I can play another mission... Gold bars were something like $2 for ~400 with more 'economical' options if you buy more at once
  • Had a crack at it its awesome
  • Y is this only for 1gig phones!?!?...dredd vs zoms worked great on the Lumia 720! :|
  • Maybe an update will come out and allow 512mb devices, like what happened with Temple Run.
  • But even after the update to temple run, it does not work in 512 ram
  • What does that mean? Doesn't work properly or doesn't work at all?
  • Looks fun,
    haven't downloaded it yet
  • Had a try on it. Plenty of fun and earnings are made by IAPs. Still, at least at early stages, it's perfectly enjoyable. Good graphics and excellent game play. Only complain that I have is the proximity of firing button and grenade\equipment usage. I often missclick, might be less annoying on bigger screens (I'm on Lumia 820).
  • So no Xbox live game this week?
  • Free is always awesome haha, download in 3...2...
  • The game is pretty good and might be my favorite along with royal revolt :o
  • Fun game, but not a fan of the energy based games
  • booo 1Gb only ):
    why no love for 512Mb devices...
  • Agreed. Just jumped to wp8 with a Lumia 521. Great phone either way.
  • Nice free game, graphics are pretty cool as well.
  • Would be nice if it would sync between the win8 and wp8 version.
  •   gameplay.
  • How do you use the grenades etc on windows eight?
