With Halloween just left, it seems like there are endless options for those of us who want to play a game that has a sold dose of horror in it. Fortunately, zombies are one of the most popular bad guys in entertainment right now, and that theme has extended to social games. In the early days of Facebook, “zombie” games were like all other text-based apps that asked players to recruit as many friends to their horde/mob/fiefdom as possible in order to “win.” As games have become a more sophisticated experience on the platform, the concept of zombies has expanded to cover everything from minions to command to a resource for harvesting. Though more prominent on mobile devices (perhaps because of perceived differences in demographics), there are still a fair amount of zombie-themed games for Facebook. Here’s a roundup of our favorites. Maybe you will like them, check out below... happy playing...

Instead of players defending themselves from the oncoming horde, they command it and assemble an army of zombies one by one. InBRAAAINS, players equip their zombie warriors with weapons and armor and send them into battle to earn money and experience. The combat comes down a pure numbers game, but players can get an edge with training and and performance enhancing items. More zombies can be bought for in-game cash (earned in battle) or via brains, which can be purchased with Facebook credits.
Nexon’s latest Facebook game Zombie Misfits expands an already diverse sub-genre of gameplay by adding tower defense elements to the mix. In the game, players must protect a bunker filled with helpless survivors from zombies by strategically placing defenders on the map. The more zombies a player kills, the more defenders they can put on the map, and the more survivors they’ll be able to keep alive.
The other zombie themed game from Kano/Apps is a much more traditional take on the undead menace, Zombie Slayer. A simple game, Zombie Slayer is more about resource allocation than it is about blasting brain-eaters. Killing zombies is accomplished by clicking the Kill More Zombies button, but the challenge comes from ensuring you have enough items and energy to take down bigger foes.
Interested in killing zombies AND improving your typing skills? Independent developer GameYawp’s HTML5 based game Zombie Typomaniac may be what you’re looking for. In the game players protect themselves against an advancing wall of zombies by typing words. The game automatically calibrates the difficulty level, and the better players type, the more trophies and in-game currency they earn. Unlike most Facebook games, Zombie Typomaniac monetizes through a paid upgrade system. For 30 Facebook credits players can purchase the full version of the game which includes 28 levels and a survival mode.
Last but not least is Zombiees!, the newest game from Austrian developer Team Vienna Games. An exceptionally cute take on zombie games (even for a genre that tends to design very cute undead monsters), the game has simple turn-based gameplay that pits the player against a university campus full of zombies as they attempt to fight their way out and find a cure for their best friend’s zombie affliction. As they level up players get better weapons and items, but can also purchase weapons, premium items, health and stamina refills with Facebook credits.
