Grandpa and the Zombies (4/5 stars, currently FREE) is a fun, turn-based strategy puzzle game where you move grandpa through a series of hospital mazes while avoiding zombies and using obstacles to your advantage.
This is not a fighting game, or a game where speedy hand-eye coordination is needed. Note that you can play it on Fire TV using the Fire TV remote, too!
It’s rated “Guidance Suggested” for cartoon zombies and availability of in-app purchases, but there’s nothing gory or violent in it. From Amazon:
90 LEVELS FULL OF UNDEAD
Just after waking up in a hospital, Grandpa Willy quickly realizes that there’s something fishy going on and that the world has changed. There’s no time to ask questions though since the zombies are already pounding on the door.
“Grandpa and the Zombies” is a fast-paced trip through 90 levels and three different worlds, which shows that you can also survive a zombie invasion in a wheelchair. The levels are filled to the brim with the craziest undead that make Grandpa Willy’s escape that much harder including stinky Halitosis Jack or the Forklift of Evil. Some of the undead can even be really helpful if you know how to interact with them.
THE PUZZLE FOR THE FEARLESS FROM 8-88!
A cool head, logic and vision are called for in order to reach the saving elevator move-by-move in every level while collecting as many candies as possible. Grandpa Willy is not in the mood for zombies but he loves candy more than anything and is willing to make a detour for this.
Steer Grandpa Willy’s wheelchair through the various levels. Grandpa Willy will roll only as far as he can until reaching an obstacle. And this better not be a zombie! Use obstacles, light declines and hazards cleverly and disorient the zombies. This is how you reach the saving elevator.
