Oh man, I need to get this game. OK… so, if you took any English or Literature classes, you will be familiar with the novel known as Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. No? Well, maybe you were sick that day. Anyways, some genius individual went and rewrote the book, and while everything is basically kept the same, they added zombies. I love zombies, and I’m sure when the zombie apocalypse comes, they will love me too, but let’s not get off topic.
The book was a huge success, spawning other parodies such as Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and Jane Slayre. It really was only a matter of time until a video game adaptation was released. What surprises me the most is that it is in the form of an iPhone game rather than something that could be found on PlayStation Network or Xbox Live Arcade. Regardless, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies looks great on the iPhone from what I’ve seen. I haven’t actually downloaded the app yet, mainly because it’s not free and I don’t feel like spending $2.99 when that can go towards a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread, but that doesn’t mean I won’t try my best to get this.
For the iPhone and iPod Touch, Freeverse has created something really outstanding. Because there are tens of thousands of apps available in the iTunes store, it’s easy for things to pass under the radar. Hopefully that doesn’t happen with this. From the trailer I watched, the controls seemed nice, graphics and frame rate was really fluid, and who doesn’t enjoy kicking the shit out of zombies?
So, check out the trailer below, and if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, download the game because if you don’t, then I will send **NSFW** this guy to your house. You’ve been warned.
