Description

Get ready for the run of your life. Join 5 million runners on an epic adventure! You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan - they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run! Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure, co-created with award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. Every run becomes a mission where you’re the hero, with our immersive audio drama putting you at the centre of your very own zombie adventure story. While you run to the perfect mix of heart-pumping audio drama and pulse-pounding songs from your own playlist, you’ll collect supplies to grow your base back home. BBC NEWS - “The only way to save yourself is to run for real.” WIRED - “In the style of Runkeeper, with an exciting undead twist.” LIFEHACKER - “A really cool way to get outside and exercise.” CNN - “Turns exercise into a game - a terrifying, terrifying game.” TIME - "Takes all the fun of a zombie game and funnels it into a fitness app." WHAT PLAYERS SAY: “Evaded all zombie mobs :-) One of my best sprints ever; this app works!” “This game will make you sweat. Perfect junction between game design and run tracker.” “Just tried @zombiesrungame and for the first time in my life I feel truly alive.” WALK, JOG, OR RUN ANYWHERE Zombies, Run! works anywhere and at any speed. You can jog in a park, run along a beach, or walk along a trail. It even works on treadmills! YOU ARE RUNNER 5 Hundreds of lives are counting on you. You’ve got to rebuild your base from a few shivering survivors into a fortified beacon of civilization by collecting critical supplies and avoiding roving zombie hordes. Can you save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse? A WORLD OF STORIES You become the hero in an epic story of humanity’s struggle for survival where your running really matters, and there’s a deeper mystery to be uncovered as well. Play the first four missions for free and unlock one extra mission every week. UPGRADE TO PRO Unlock 300+ story missions for unlimited play, plus Interval Training and Airdrop Mode. YOUR OWN MIX Choose your own custom playlists: the story unfolds in between your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings. ZOMBIE CHASES Saving the world not exciting enough? When you hear zombies on your six, it’s time to speed up. Can you escape every mob or will you drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them? KEEP THE SURVIVORS ALIVE Every run, you’ll automatically collect vital supplies like medicine and ammo. Use supplies to build your very own post-apocalypse community. Do you strengthen your defences against the zombies or build a new farm? Share the results with your friends and find out who can make the brightest future for humanity.

    This app has breathed new life into my stale running route! The story is interesting, the voice acting is good, and collecting supplies/building your base is fun!

    I could never get into exercising, but once I started using this app back in 2015 I really got into it and got way healthier thanks to it. Thank you Abel township 👍🏻
  • Need Apple Watch Love

    Bought this app when they just released season 1. Got me into distance running and I even trained and completed a marathon with it. I would give it 5 stars for the experience and the motivation. I’m just hoping that they fix their Apple Watch functionality, so I can run without my phone. Sounds trivial, but I never run with my phone anymore and it’s the only thing keeping me from using this app 3-4 times a week instead of once a month. ***please, please, please make it a standalone on Apple watch***
  • AMAZING!!!!

  • Great Concept, Poor Implementation

    Good story, fun idea. Definitely a good way to make workouts more fun. Unfortunately, there are a few cumbersome things that make this app difficult to use. 1. You can’t listen to Apple Music. I know this is a DRM issue, but the app does not work well at all when you use the workaround of having music play outside the app. Can’t skip songs, app randomly stops working, etc. This caused me to stop using the app for a while. 2. Why do I need to create an account with an independent login when I have a subscription through iTunes? Why is this not integrated with my iTunes account? You figured out how to integrate payment, why not access to maps and other account features? This is keeping me from returning to the app today. I want to use this app, I want to love it, but these few roadblocks are making it unusable.

    Love the app. Super fun. Would love if you add a feature where you take a picture and it automatically adds zombies chasing you! I created my own version!

    This is an AWESOME app! I’m not a runner but this MAKES me want to go out and do 3-4 miles just to keep up with the storyline. Even doing work at short distance face pace is more fun with the chases. I was hesitant to pay for the extra features but when I found myself bored on a run and thinking about it...it was the first thing I did when I got back! Great idea...Great story...Great concept! Thanks for making me WANT to go running!
  • Great app

    I loved Zombies Run - it's helped me go from not running to doing 2-3 5K runs per week, and really helped me implement a lifestyle change. In the first three seasons, I loved the writing (some episodes are a little silly, but by and large it's compelling), loved the voice acting, and loved the base building. Be sure to listen to radio mode too - it adds a lot to the experience and some depth to the world. I typically do a half hour run listening to an episode, followed by half an hour walk with radio mode, which works perfectly for me. However, three things have happened in the last few seasons that irk me greatly. First, the timeline has become inconsistent - all the cultural references indicate the zombie outbreak was meant to be contemporaneous with the release of season 1, circa 2011. However, later seasons have available AI and technology that simply wasn’t available in 2011, and this greatly distracts from the immersion in the story. Second, some plot lines have essentially jumped the shark - I can believe in one unbelievable thing (zombies), but don’t introduce additional ones - without providing spoilers, I’d say the Moonchild story ends up at a ridiculous place, as does the Veronica storyline. Finally, there’s too much of the “we’re going to die, oh, phew, we were saved at the last second”. You can get away with that once maybe, but it gets ridiculous after a while. I really hope they can improve the storyline for season 8, and that they plan out multi season story arcs.
  • Enjoyable exercise

    Have just recently started working out and I’m enjoying to story and finding the app quite encouraging when it comes to running/fast walking. Have been using for about 5-6 days and enjoying every minute
