But the undead are chasing them in earnest, and you're the last line of defense for the survivors and their base of operations. From a circling AC-130, your job is to shoot down zombies with one of three different weapons, each of which carries different zoom levels, firing speeds and areas of effect, while also defending humans as they run for their lives. As you blast zombies, you'll earn bounties to apply toward decking out your plane.
