"Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies delivers a Zombies experience never before seen on mobile platforms, including the original Call of Duty: Black Ops map Kino der Toten, and 50 levels of Dead-Ops Arcade, with even more features, upgrades and maps to come. Gamers can play solo, or battle it out in a true multiplayer experience with up to four people using the new Voice Chat feature."
The game allows four-player multiplayer, and, as a new addition to the iOS platform, voice chat. The first map to be released was Kino der Toten, and Dead Ops Arcade has also been fully transformed to the iOS platform, with 50 levels. Players are able to play as the four characters from the console version; Tank Dempsey, Nikolai Belinski, Takeo Masaki and Doctor Richtofen, as well as the four random characters from Dead Ops Arcade and a "rookie" soldier in the tutorial. Activision has also stated that further map packs will be released in the near future, free of charge.
An update on February 2, 2012 added the Ray Gun, Monkey Bomb, and SPAS-12. It also added a feature to continue the previous game (on solo), as well as fixing some bugs, plus adding a new COD Point feature, which allows the player to buy things on solo. On March 15, 2012, Ascension was released, along with the Thundergun, Gersch Device, and Matryoshka Dolls.
This also makes the explosive function of PhD Flopper unusable.
The four pieces of the golden coin used to unlock Dead Ops are scattered around the menu.
1st piece is in the More Apps part of the menu, next to a Zombie breaking through a barrier on the right side
2nd piece is in the Co-Op Multiplayer part of the menu, in the hand of the Cosmic Silverback in the down-right corner
3rd piece is in the Extras part of the menu, on a crate in the upper-right corner
4th piece is in the Player Profile part of the menu, right above the "Back" button in the down-left corner
In the tutorial mode, Tank Dempsey helps the player to kill the zombies in the Kino der Toten map. After a while, the player turns into a zombie and the game ends. This is similar to the Tutorial ending in Call of Duty: Zombies but instead of the player turning into a zombie, Richtofen turns into one instead.
