George A. Romero adds voice to 'Zombie Squash'

The godfather of zombies, George A. Romero, wears a lot of hats but he can now add "Voice of Mad Scientist in a Zombie Game" to his resume.

Now available for free at Google Play, Amazon and iTunes, Zombie Squash features Romero as Dr. B. E. Vil.

A tower defense-style game, the press release says Zombie Squash is set in a "world where plants and vegetables like turban squash and fairy tail pumpkins turn into zombies spawned from the evil experiments of Dr. B. E. Vil, owner of the controversial bio-chemical, genetics company Monsterno Corporation."

Playing as rabbit Jack Stompingtail, you must use carrots, zucchini, etc to battle Romero's army to prevent Zombie Squash from taking over the world. Said the press release, "after competing the first 5 levels, you unlock the addictive, survival mode mini-game."

The game is available now, and an extended full-pay version will be available by mid-December.
