"The very first iPhone Call of Duty is in fact not a gritty war game on the beaches of Normandy, but instead a horror-shooter based on the zombie mode from World of War."

Call of Duty: ZOMBIES (also called Call of Duty: World at War Zombies and Call of Duty: ZOMBIES HD)(also known as Call of Duty: World at War Zombies, Call of Duty: Zombies, CoD WaW 5 Z, and Call of Duty 5 Zombies) is the sixth game in the spin-off branch of Call of Duty games and was produced by Ideaworks Gamestudios, released on November 16, 2009.

Zombies Edit

This game only features Zombies mode. This game features Tutorial and Nacht Der Untoten/Shi No Numa.

Gameplay is very similar to other games featuring Zombies mode, especially World at War, but there are some exceptions, such as slower gameplay (enemies don't run as fast), less sounds, and reduced graphics to make the gameplay smooth. Similar to grenade indicators, enemy indicators have been added into the game to make up for the lack of surround sound.

More maps used to be available by purchasing DLC (Downloadable Content), but now can be taken for free through updates.

On February 11, 2010, Verrückt became available for in-app purchase for US$4.99/£2.99. On June 2, Shi No Numa was released for the same price.

On June 3, 2010, Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies II came out for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It is the same app as the original, but instead comes with Shi No Numa instead of Nacht der Untoten, saving the user US$4.99/£2.99 if they were only going to play Shi No Numa. Nacht Der Untoten is downloadable through Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies II for the price of US$4.99/£2.99, but buying this map would make the two apps the same.

On September 30, 2010, an update included Der Riese for free, and made all previous maps free as well (no refunds were given for previous downloads). The app also changed its name to Call of Duty: ZOMBIES. Also the price of the app dropped from US $9.99 to US $4.99 (In Europe €3,99). The name was later changed again to its current name.

Call of Duty: ZOMBIES HD, available only on the iPad, contained the maps Nacht der Untoten and Verrückt upon purchase.[1]

The goal of the game is the same as the console version, to survive the unending hordes of zombies for as many rounds as possible. Unlike the console version, players can change the difficulty to either Recruit, giving the player more health, or Regular, just like the console version.

On this version, some weapons reload faster and some reload slower due to certain weapons like the Thompson and Gewehr 43 not needing to be cocked back after the magazine is emptied. However, on the downside, the STG-44 and MP40 will always have to be cocked back even when the magazine is not emptied.


There are three control schemes included with Call of Duty: Zombies. All three involve using a virtual control stick to move the character around and a button on the right for aiming down the sights. The default touch screen, aims by using the right thumb to manipulate the screen. The dual stick method is similar, but in this mode the player uses a second virtual stick to aim. The tilt method takes advantage of the iPhone/iPod Touch's built-in accelerometer. To switch the player's view, simply tilt the device left or right. Because of the stiffness of the controls, all weapons have received a damage boost.

Maps Edit

Tutorial Edit

Tutorial begins the NZ (Nazi Zombies) Storyline. Rook wakes up to find Edward Richtofen outside the bunker, wounded and infected. Richtofen then goes over training with Rook until he becomes a zombie and gets killed by Rook.

This map features only four weapons, being a Knife, Stielhandgranates, a Colt M1911, and a buyable Kar98k. Zombies and Edward Richtofen are the threats of this map. This map resembles the starting room of Nacht Der Untoten, with debris blocking most of the map.
