Survive The Zombie Apocalypse With The Haynes Zombie Survival Manual App!
With Halloween just passed, and The Walking Dead back on our TV screens (Monday nights at 9pm on Fox UK), now is the time we should all be more vigilant again the rising of the undead! To help with that, the renowned technical manual makes ‘Haynes’ have released ‘The Haynes Zombie Survival Manual’ App for iPhone… Not on Android currently. I’m assuming they think Android users don’t need the help, and have got this whole zombie apocalypse thing covered… 😉
Based on the best-selling Haynes Zombie Survival Manual by Sean T Page, the Zombie Survival App is available to download for free from the iOS App Store… It takes the manual’s hugely popular content and reformats it into the concept of persona types with corresponding survival techniques and the function to unlock other detailed crucial information. Importantly, it also educates the user in how to spot a zombie and signs to look out for.
With users being given the option to pick one of three survivor profiles – scientist, fighter or forager, they are then equipped with the tools to survive a zombie attack by navigating a series of chapters to understand more about the living dead. Wannabe survivalists can also test their knowledge by challenging themselves to various quizzes at the end of each chapter to receive rewards. On completing all chapters, users receive their official license to deal with the walking dead.
Capturing the imagination of Zombie fans, the survival techniques featured in the app are provided by Sean T Page, who runs the website Ministry of Zombies to raise awareness of the zombie threat. In addition to the Zombie Survival Manual and the Alien Invasion Survival Manual from Haynes, Sean has also written The Official Zombie Handbook UK and War Against the Walking Dead.
Andrew Golby, Global Digital Director at Haynes Publishing, commented: “This new app is an exciting venture for Haynes, and the result of a collaboration between Haynes and author Sean T Page.
It also brings a new twist on our very rich heritage and reputation as the brand everyone trusts for practical information, ensuring that people are equipped with the essential low-down on how to survive the walking dead.”
