TEACH PETS TO STAY DEAD WITH PET SEMATARY FROM PARAMOUNT DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT - NOW AVAILABLE ON THE APPLE APP STORE
Just in time for Halloween, Paramount Digital Entertainment has released Pet Sematary for the iPhone and iPod touch, a top-down, tap-to-kill arcade game inspired by the classic horror film. In "Pet Sematary," a grief-stricken father buries his son in an ancient animal burial ground, where it is said everything laid to rest there will come back to life. But the burial ground is for animals only; when the animals and his son rise from the grave - they have a new hunger for human flesh. Players in Pet Sematary take on the role of a lone hero uninterested in becoming cat food. Perched on the rooftops, players will shoot down undead animals by tapping them one to four times as they race across the screen to feast on innocent townspeople.
Taking advantage of the touch screen, players will eliminate the zombie children, dogs, cats and birds by tapping them one to four times as they dart down the streets. Players will need to pay close attention to friend or foe, as health is diminished if innocents are accidentally killed or when an undead creature escapes or eats a townsperson. Tapping the lower left corner reloads the player's ammo. Each level lasts just under one minute, and increases in difficultly as the game progresses, eventually unleashing a frenzy of attacks upon the unlucky townspeople wandering the street. In-game pickups help to score bonus points, replenish health, and provide a temporary weapon upgrade.
Pet Sematary also includes built-in social networking features
that allow players to post their high scores directly to their Facebook pages.
Pet Sematary for iPhone and iPod touch is now available at the Apple App Store for $0.99. To purchase the game, visit: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=334939862&mt=8&s=143460
