Battle Zombies with Shaquille O’Neal in ShaqDown for Android
What do Shaquille O’Neal and Zombies have in common? Absolutely nothing unless you’re playing ShaqDown from One Spear Entertainment and Hiptic Games. Yup, The Big Aristotle has his own Android game and it’s a doozy…
ShaqDown takes place in the future after a zombie outbreak wipes out most of the population. Instead of the zombies dying out from lack of food, they got smart and adapted to enslave us which means it’s up to you to save what’s left of humanity. ShaqDown is an endless runner game that puts you to work barreling through the levels as The Diesel. The controls are very simple as you’ll swipe up and down to do a jump attack of sorts and “shoot” free throws to take out certain enemies. The game offers a Story Mode set across three different areas to go along with Survival Mode. ShaqDown also has a shop full of odd power-ups like the Dazzle Suit and Lee Kemp an Olympic Wrestler that weakens Zombies with is wrestling skills.
In case you couldn’t tell I’m a fan of The Big Baryshnikov, and even had the pleasure of watching Shaq play in college during the SEC tourney. ShaqDown is a game worthy of Shaq (when you take into account Shaq Fu) and while it’s certainly odd, it’s quite a bit of fun once you get the hang of things. ShaqDown is definitely different just like Shaq himself and it’s available to download on Google Play for only $0.99.
