I’ve just been informed by the fine folks at Meridian that a substantial update to they’re very popular dual-joystick zombie fighter has just been submitted to Apple for approval.  Improvements include a couple new game modes, 5 new weapons and a few other display tweaks.   There was no mention of any price increase, but I’d recommend picking this up now for just 99 cents, just in case.
