The popular Fitness game you've probably heard or seen a thing or two about for iOS has finally landed on Android. It's Called Zombies, Run! and while there's similar apps available this is the original. A smashing hit on iOS this will surely keep you motivated, and help you stay in shape -- all while having fun at the same time.

This is much more than just a fitness app. It is a game and a lifestyle in a way. It might sound a little weird at first but it has a huge following and it helps people stay motivated while working out and running. Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure. You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, and take your first steps outside. Once you start running outside or on a treadmill you'll start to hear the zombies, and your instructions to get away.

You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan - they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!

The entire game and story is delivered through your headphones via voice commands and pre-recordings. The app basically simulates a full out zombie infection where you'll have to run to avoid being turned and infected. They offer 23 missions and 7 more will be coming in a future update. It offers 20-30 minute workout runs where you'll surely sweat and burn some calories. The closer the Zombies get the faster you'll have to run. The idea sounds a bit bizarre but tons of people love this to keep them motivated while exercising.

After each "mission" or workout you're rewarded with supplies to keep the city going during the zombie apocalypse and will surely lose some calories at the same time. The idea around this is it's more than just an app or a game, it's a story that unfolds while keeping you motivated. You can get this for Android finally as of last night for $7.99 at the link below.

    While glad it’s now on Android, pretty sure it’s not the original. There is another game of the same name in the Play Store that is at least a year older than the iOS version of this game.

    Its not “Zombie Run”, its “Zombies, Run!” The extra letter and punctuation matter cos its a different app/game. Nobody’s calling anything fake. I was a Kickstarter backer for this app and have been out on my first ‘mission’ today. I love it – but then I love zombie films, I love going out walking (you don’t have to be able to run) and I love strategy games. Its still in beta for the Android but more content and features are being tweaked and developed all the time.
