What's New in Version 2.1.1
- You now receive one material when you complete a season one mission for the first time. Just upgrade to receive materials for all of the missions you've already completed, then get building! The zombies are coming...
- Your headset now tells you when zombies start chasing you!
- Vastly improved ZombieLink behaviour.
- Lots of small improvements and fixes in the base builder, as well as a fix for the "tiny base" issue experienced by some ZombieLink users.
- You can now see which missions you ran when you review your run logs.
Hi Runner Fives!
There's been an update out for a week or so but I was waiting for others to say it was safe to update. today i realized maybe everyone else was too so I took the plunge and it's all still accessible. yay!!!!
I haven't gone into much with the app to check out changes and what not since I just wanted to make sure the game still works and it totally does. The developers of this app are freaking awesome!
Hi. I have been using zombies run for the past few days, and I can't get it to repair my defense tower. I double tap on the tower and it goes back to the home screen. also, It won't let me build on some cells, it either sayd dimbed, or says the cell is selected and won't let me do anything. Help? Thanks!
It is possible to do zombie chases with excellaromitor on.it works fine for me. I'm not sure how to help you fix it though. Try adjusting your stride length in the settings for excellaromitor.
Hi runner 5's, I do not understand why the total distance of a ran mission is not displayed, even though I have put in my estimated stride distance. The work around is to get Siri to calculate and convert the total steps completed into miles but why have the stride settings as an option?
By the way, with version 3.0.2, the interval training missions are great to use on a bike trainer as there are no chases. I just use the gears set to low for walking, middle for jogging and top for flat out sprintting into that kill box! Great stuff!
For those of you using a treadmill, how did you measure your stride? Trying to set this up so I can use it.
I am having the defense tower issue where I can't repair my tower. When I double tap on it it goes back to the home screen. This happens with my communications and armoury also. Any help would be great!
What's New in Version 4.0
Get ready, Runner 5. It’s time to save the world, one more time.
Raise the gates: this is our biggest update ever! How big? We’re now free-to-play! You’ve been telling your friends about Zombies, Run! for years. Now
it's easier than ever for them to help you defend Abel Township.
Existing players (which is pretty much all of you): Your support has kept us going for the past three years. Your season pass purchases, your love of our
story and our characters, your feedback and wonderful words of support. You are the engine behind Zombies, Run! So we’re now giving you access to every
single mission up to the end of Season 3 - plus Interval Training and Race Missions and all 150+ story missions. For free.
Season 4: Our new season is packed full of thrills, scares, laughs, and feels. We think it’s our best season yet. You can unlock one mission every week
for free, or upgrade to Pro Membership for unlimited access. Because you’ve supported us, Pro Membership costs only $7.99 a year ($19.99 for new players).
Auto-play next run: Like popcorn, a single ZR mission is never enough. Now you can indulge your binge-running desires by having the next mission start
automatically after the first finishes. Perfect for those days when you’re just hitting your stride as Sam calls you home.
Improved support for music: Thelma and Louise. Butch and Sundance. Zombies, Run! and kickass music. Perfect pairings. This one just got better. You only
need to start Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, or any other music app before you run, and we’ll lower your music volume when Abel Township gets in
Zombie chase difficulty: One size *doesn’t* fit all. That’s why you can now adjust chases to fit your mood perfectly. Fancy an easier run to get yourself
back in form? Tweak the zombie mob frequency or speed in Settings. Want to feel like all the hounds of hell are on your heels? We’re right there with you.
Zombie chases: scare yourself fit on your own terms.
Mission synopses: You’ve come a long way, Runner 5. Saved the world more times than you can count. Travelled countless miles and outrun danger at every
turn. That’s a lot to remember - which is why all missions now have synopses so you can re-live your favourite moments from Abel history.
Previously on, and Next ons: Been a while since your last mission? Let our “Previously on Zombies, Run!” clips remind you what’s going on at Abel. Need
even more reasons to raise the gates for your next run? The brand-new “Next On” teasers will get your blood pumping and your feet moving.
Brand new design: Zombies, Run! has never looked better. Janine’s been hard at work giving every surface a new coat of paint, every menu a polish and every
screen that little bit of extra flair. Even better: every mission now has a glorious piece of banner artwork meaning our story now looks as good as it
Estimated mission duration: Do I have time for a run before work? What if this is a really long mission? Worry no more: we now show you the estimated duration
of every story mission.
Base Builder: Getting Abel Township off the ground used to be really tricky. Not enough materials, complicated pre-requisites for buildings, pricey base
extensions. That’s why we tweaked the base builder to make it more balanced, easier to understand, and much more fun. Now rebuilding Abel is as much fun
as running from it!
Customisable Clip Spacing: ZR is all about your run, your music, and your pace. Now you can precisely adjust how often we play story clips. Out for a short
run? Get those clips playing more often so you can fit in the whole mission. Training for a marathon? Spread them out so we’re with you the whole way round.
Your run, your way.
And we now sync with Apple Health!
Improved Zombielink sync: Edit and delete run logs from your phone and see those changes reflected on Zombielink (and vice versa).
Apple Watch: View and control your missions from your wrist. It’s the future!
The words "brand new design" always terrify me. This update sounds awesome but did it break accessibility?
Would I be able to play this even if my tredmeel does not have a way to hold my phone? I want to try this game. I have it just never tried it.
I got an exercise bike recently, and this sounds like something fun to do while I ride. Any thoughts on whether this would still work with the bike instead of a treadmill?
Hi having installed this update I can unfortunately report there are major issues with VoiceOver in this update, in particular so far I have discovered one unlabelled button which seems to relate to tracking options. The most serious issue I have discovered is that the buttons to access the different seasons are not available in flick order as they were previously. You have to go groping over the screen hoping you will find them and let me tell you they are quite small I haven't even found the one for season 4 yet. Needless to say I will be contacting the developers and hopefully they can address these issues. I think the accessibility information needs to be updated for this app as the interface now definitely needs work and it is difficult to use. Another thing I have found is that I don't seem to be able to start any radio 4 season 4, I select the radio mode option for season 4 but don't see any way to actually begin playback.
With the app going free, I decided to try it. I found the unlabelled tracking button, but I cannot find a way to start music playback from within the app. I started playback in the iPhone Music app, but as soon as I started the mission in Zombies, the music stopped, and did not return after the helicopter crash sequence.
Is there a music button I haven't found, hiding somewhere in the app?
Glad I checked here before I updated since I'm just getting back to my runs and would hate to run into the accessibility issues. I bet they fix them. These developers have always been wonderful.
As for using the app on a bike, you totally could, I just don't know if it would take any kind of distance. Maybe find a way to strap the phone to your leg so the accelerometer can do it's thing.
For the treadmill question, you want the phone on you anyway, so the accelerometer can work so the fact that there's no place to store the phone isn't an issue.
I play this game jogging in place on a mini trampoline with my phone on me, using ear buds.
Hmm. I have a rebounder so I could try that when I'm not feeling too sick. lol!
by the way if you have no music, what does it use instead?
The way the game works is there will be about two minutes of story, then a song then more story while you do the mission. So if the music is broken in this version, there must just be story and then silence.
When you go to more there is a statistics on the upper right is a music tab. However I have noticed it just wants to play the same songs and won't let me change anything. I am going to make a playlist and try and add it.
If anyone figures out how to do this let me know!
I love this but I have started from the beginning and the base-building thing stil is not working.
Love this game though.
I got some sighted assistance. What Voice Over sees as one wide unlabelled button, that only goes to the tracking options, is actually three buttons, for tracking, music, and something else I don't remember right now. I had them set the options the way I wanted. Hopefully, when I go to use the app next, the options we selected will be preserved.
