ZOS for Android: Beta 0.6, with player maps!

Hey everyone,

I’ve just pushed out a new release of ZOS for Android to the beta testers. This version includes the ability to play ZOS on the over 2,500 maps created by players of Class 3 Outbreak, using the editor at www.class3outbreak.com!

On the map select screen there is a new Player Maps tab, where you can zoom in to find a map you’d like to play.

When you get close enough you can see a preview of the area covered by the map.

This now completes all of the features planned for the first release of ZOS on Android. However there’s still a bunch of stuff left to do before it is ready for release… so it’s time for me to get back to it :)

If you’d like to be a beta tester, just fill out this form and I’ll give you access.

More screenshots of the beta are available in these recent posts: version 0.5, version 0.4, version 0.3, version 0.2, version 0.1.

cya!

    This will be good when it is released. Cant wait.
    How will you be able to make the maps?

    I would like to suggest a new feature

    Adding Zombies when game is in play

    This could be done by either dropping crates filled with anywhere from 10-50 infected or just clicking a button that would add another wave of zombies to come from the outskirts of the map.

    The reason the game needs this is because i am constantly running into the issue of all the infected being slaughtered by my strongholds i create with military personal and then that is it… GAME OVER

    I suggest implementing this feature to keep the game going for longer which would increase players interest in the game, maybe add like a wave system where every 2-5 minutes another wave of infected would come and you can see how long you can hold off the undead hordes?

      Hey Zane, yeah I think something along those lines would be a good idea. I’m not planning to add any more features for the first release (I want to get it released as soon as possible), but this could be added in a future update. cya, Saxon

    1) When is a ZOS update coming for Apple users? 2) What features are being considered?

    • Saxon says:

      Hi David,

      The new features in ZOS for Android which aren’t in ZOS for iOS are:

      – soldiers
      – helicopters
      – player maps

      Once the Android version is released, I’ll bring those same new features over to the iOS version as well. This will actually be a full port of the Android version back to iOS, as the Android version has a completely rebuilt user interface. So as to when, the answer is basically as soon as I can :)

      cya,
      Saxon
