Armor Games has launched a reimagining of the original cult-hit zombie RPG Sonny on select iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices via the App Store for $2.99. Rising from the dead with his mind intact but memories missing, the titular Sonny must battle paramilitary forces, ravenous techno-beasts, undead monstrosities and more to uncover the truth behind his resurrection and save the world.
Developed by series creator Krin Juangbhanich and published by Armor Games, the iOS edition of Sonny remixes and evolves upon its Flash-based predecessors, first released in 2007, with a new storyline, expanded gameplay features, enhanced visuals and more, making it ideal for both long-time fans and newcomers alike. Players will discover a unique adventure with familiar faces showing up in different ways, a new story arc and ending with divergent plot twists, and original enemies and locations. The game also features detailed 2D characters and environments, graphic novel-style artwork by Jet Kimchrea and an engrossing original score by David Orr.
Sonny is a combat-focused, turn-based RPG with an emphasis on planning and strategy. A new system in the iOS edition of Sonny allows players to evolve their hero mid-battle with unique powers to turn the tide of challenging fights. Beyond that, players can customize their parties with a streamlined skill tree, upgradeable gear, and intriguing team members with special abilities.
