‘Zombie Kidz Evolution’ Shambles Into Stores This March

Zombie Kidz Evolution (Iello Games)Iello Games is about to release the first “legacy-style” game aimed directly at younger gamers. While the subject matter might not scream “kids game!” Zombie Kidz Evolution will challenge the players with protecting their school from the undead. The game is for two to four players, ages 7+, plays in five to fifteen minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $22.99 when it shuffles into stores on March 7th.

From Iello:

Zombie Kidz Evolution is the first “legacy”-style game for kids, with basic gameplay similar to the 2013 title Zombie Kidz — but things will quickly evolve!

In the game, the young players are at school when zombies start to attack, infiltrating the entryways, then barring the way to classrooms. Players move through rooms and entryways to eliminate zombies and keep the zombie reserve full. If a zombie must enter the school but none are available, then the school has been overrun and the players lose. To win the game, players need to lock each of the four entryways as apparently the custodian has abandoned the post and given up the school for lost.

As players get better, they can complete missions, track their development through a trophy-sticker system reminiscent of video games, and open envelopes that contain new material for the game, upping the challenge they face while also providing them with new powers and new heroes as well.

This is the first game for children inspired by the legacy-game concept. The simple, base rules become more complex every time you play, making it ideal for bringing parents and children together on a regular basis. There are 13 mysterious envelopes to discover with supplementary game material. The original game rules can still be used to play the game, even at the end of the campaign.
