    "This game can be really immersive and fun to play. I keep finding myself getting into it, maybe a little too much. Running from zombies in augmented reality is a brilliant way to keep yourself entertained while you get a workout. I highly recommend it."

    "I got tired of playing Pokemon Go on my phone all the time. I wanted an alternative game to play that was similar. I found Zombies Everywhere. This game uses augmented reality like Pokemon Go and is super fun to play. I love how fun it is! I'm super addicted to it. The graphics are awesome and I haven't had any issues with crashing or bugs. Definitely check it out!"
