One of the top Facebook game developers CrowdStar, has apparently quietly released a new game for the iOS called “Zombie Universe”.
Considering the popularity of zombie games and shows, “Zombie Universe” has the potential to attract even more gamers because of the Halloween season. In addition to Halloween, The Walking Dead season 2 premieres on October 16 on AMC.
But there’s a catch for zombie fans looking to play Zombie Universe; if you have an iTunes U.S. store account, you may run into problems trying to download the free app, as the app is currently only available in the iTunes Canada store.
According to iTunes, Zombie Universe was released on September 30, 2011 on iTunes, and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
On September 27, 2011, Crowdstar Inc. filed a trademark application (Serial Number: 85433506) with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for “Zombie Universe by CrowdStar Network”.
The goods and services cover: “Downloadable computer game software for use on wireless devices and computers; computer-game software, video game software, and computer game application software; interactive-video-game programs; electronic game software and electronic game application software that may be accessed via the Internet, computers and wireless devices; computer software to enable uploading, posting, showing, displaying, tagging, blogging, sharing or otherwise providing electronic media or information regarding the fields of virtual communities, electronic gaming, entertainment and general interest via the Internet or other communications networks with third”.
CrowdStar also looks to be releasing another game called “Wildlife Safari” according to the USPTO. On the same day the company filed a trademark for Zombie Universe, it also filed the “Wildlife Safari” trademark (Serial Number: 85433505).
