What is Zombies, Run?
Today’s app is Zombies, Run!, a quirky alternative to your ‘normal’ free health and fitness app. Developed by Six to Start, an independent and entertainment company based in London, Zombies, Run! Works on IOS, Android and Windows and described as ‘the world’s most popular smartphone fitness game’.
So as you prepare for the ‘run of your life’ here’s a little peek of what to expect from the app:
What does the app look like and how do I use it?
Once you’ve signed up, Zombies, Run! sets the scene. Only a few have survived the zombie epidemic, you’ll play a runner en-route to one of humanity’s last remaining outposts and they need your help to gather supplies, rescue survivors and defend their home – so the pressure is on!
There are lots of different missions you can complete, supplies that you can pick up and you’ll be able to monitor how far you’ve run and for how long with the built in run logs. The app let’s you register with the free online ZombieLink service to view and share your individual runs and also view your full run history including maps.
The great thing is you have the option to play by walking, jogging and running and can also listen to the story and your own music through your headphones while you use the app – so you’ll feel well equipped and ready to save the world!
How could this app help me?
There are several options to tailor the app to work to fit into any fitness routine. With a running commentary and warnings of zombies approaching, it’s easy to picture the scene and can be quite addictive to play especially if you are a completionist.
Definitely worth a download if you are looking for a more interactive, motivating fitness experience!
