Head to the Wild West in Age of Zombies Anniversary, Featuring New Zombies, Weapons, Achievements, HD Remastering and more

BRISBANE, Australia - Nov. 17, 2011 - Halfbrick's Barry Steakfries has survived an entire year in the zombie apocalypse and is celebrating the one-year birthday of Age of Zombies with Age of Zombies Anniversary. The digitally remastered version of the highly acclaimed dual-stick action shooter, Age of Zombies Anniversary will feature all-new Wild West content, HD graphics, support for iCloud and more. Age of Zombies Anniversary universal app will be available on November 17, 2011 for a limited time price of $0.99.

"We've put poor Barry Steakfries through a lot over the past year -- endless zombie invasions, unreliable time travel, near hopeless battles against reanimated dinosaurs," said Phil Larsen, chief marketing officer at Halfbrick. "We thought, what better way to celebrate Barry's survival than to create a whole new set of ravenous monsters and brutal challenges with gorgeous graphics, and throw Barry into a zombified Wild West to face it all. Happy Birthday Barry!"

In the celebratory, high-definition Age of Zombies Anniversary, Barry Steakfries travels across milestones in history -- including prehistoric times, ancient Egypt, feudal Japan and the all-new Wild West -- to blast, burn and battle back the undead forces of the appropriately named Professor Brains. Use a variety of weapons including rocket launchers, flamethrowers, shotguns and cheesy one-liners to destroy hordes of zombie ninjas, mummies, cavemen, cowboys and even a Zombie T-Rex in a birthday hat.

With Game Center leaderboards, a horde of achievements and universal synchronization via the cloud -- meaning progress and achievements will carry over to any iOS device -- Age of Zombies Anniversary is the crown jewel in the time traveling, zombie blasting, cut-off leather vest wearing comedy action genre.

Age of Zombies Anniversary will be available with new HD graphics for iPhone 4/4S and iPad devices as a universal app on November 17, 2011 for $0.99.
