Capcom Entertainment has released Zombie Cafe to iTunes for free. The game is considered a social time management game where players take over a small cafe. They serve rather nasty meals to customers before infecting them and turning them into restaurant minions.
In the world of Zombie Café, the food service industry is a life and death business. In addition to managing a menu, preparing up to 50 recipes and decorating their café with more than 100 items, players will have to deal with the ramifications of having a wait staff comprised of undead zombies. Sure the cost of labor is low, but having a fussy zombie try and eat a customer will sink a player’s star rating. On the plus side, if the competition gets too fierce players can always direct their zombie workers to attack a neighboring café and steal their secret recipes.
Zombie Café is free to download and play, but players can expedite the growth of their café by purchasing toxin as downloadable content. Additional content and enhancements for the title are already in development
Zombie Cafe is FREE on iTunes.
