World Zombination is an amazing new strategy/tower defense hybrid game available on the App Store, a game that gives you the chance to play either as the zombies or the survivors (or both, which is the most fun!). We’re going to guide you through all the tips and tricks that you need to know in order to get the most out of the game and since I believe that most people will focus on leading the zombie horde to victory, we’ll start with some World Zombination cheats and tips for Zombie Horde players, as gameplay changes a lot based on the faction you choose to play as.
Note: If you want to play as the other faction, simply tap the settings button (cogwheel in the upper left corner) and select the option from the menu – you will need a free account which takes seconds to create. Now let’s move on and let’s check out the World Zombination tips and cheats for the Zombie Horde below!
1. Train your troops
You need good troops in order to improve your chances of winning all battles, and in order to have good troops, you need to train them a lot. You need 7 team members (we’ll talk about an ideal setup below) per team and I would suggest you have two main squads for battle. This means that you need to focus on training 14 units – nothing more, because DNA is hard to come by!
2. First training is free!
When we’re talking about regular troops, the first training (to level 2) is free. So don’t wait the minute, simply tap the training chamber and rush the training for free!
3. Find the best team setup for you!
There are a lot of zombie types available in the game and the rarer they are, the better their stats, but there are some guidelines you can follow in order to easily win all your challenges. In my opinion, the ideal team setup is similar to this one: Boss character, two brutes, one Infectonator, one spitter, one Collosus and one Deliveryman. The rarer they are, the better (so you can go for Titan instead of Collosus, Defiler instead of Spitter and so on). This gives you a pretty balanced team setup, good for both close range and long range. Also, always pick the rarest option from your clan!
4. Join a solid, active guild
Being part of a solid, active guild is extremely important – the higher the level of the guild, the more perks you will get and a guild of level 10 is already giving you a ton of bonuses. Not to mention the fact that you can actually go to Guild Wars and win amazing rewards! So find an active guild ASAP!
5. How to get more DNA?
As you probably know already, DNA is an extremely scarce resource in World Zombination. However, you can get more by playing smart: sell all your not needed troops and you will get DNA points in return. Remember, you don’t really need more than 21 zombies anyway and as you keep playing, better options will be unlocked!
6. Use the Quick Fight smartly
A quick fight is a great option when you have it available because not only it guarantees that you win the mission with the maximum amount of points (if you meet the Team Power requirements), but it also saves you a lot of time. The downside of that is that it dries up all your troops’ stamina. However, you can play it smart: either use the second team for a quick fight or the team with the least stamina. It’s a big win especially useful during faction wars.
7. Test your strategy in the PvP arena
Fighting as the Zombie Horde in the PvP arena is not that easy, but you can improve your strategy by playing there. The rewards are not amazing after winning battles, but if you manage to rank high in your league, you will get some nice rewards, including DNA and premium currency!
8. Strategize in battle
You have to make sure that whenever you are starting a battle, you are there to win it. Check out the map, look at the placement of the troops and decide the best approach based on the units that you have. I would never recommend to split your team in more than two groups and you should always strike at the weakest points in battle. Don’t forget to use the land to your own advantage – tall, blue barricades for example block the way for long range units and you can surprise them breaking through there. Be aware of the troop types, know what their strengths and weaknesses are and always be ready to adjust your strategy based on the new deployment areas you unlock (and extra zombies that you get with the Infectonator). Having a solid strategy wins you half of the battle!
It’s also important to know your troops and where to place them – long range troops should be placed at the back, while the Tanks (like the Collossus or Brutes) at the front. Also, keep Deliverymen away from your own troops since they blast everything in their way away!
So these would be our tips and tricks for World Zombinations – for the Zombie Horde. Let us know if you have other strategies and make sure to check back soon if you play as the Survivors as we’ll have a guide for them published soon!
