Zombies, Run!

After having my Galaxy Nexus finally fixed – I dropped it and the screen went fubar – I finally got around to install „Zombies, Run!“

I like most things Zombie related, so an app combining Zombies and motivating me to work out more seemed just the thing. And it is.

To point out fairly I havent even finished the first Mission, but I already have a few improvements.

  • Atmosphere
    I’m lacking background noise. I usually run without music, so I wouldn’t mind some noise, like the sound of foot steps, creaking noises or sounds telling me where I am. Am I out in the open, near a river, inside somewhere.
    Also while I like the people reading, I’d like some more sound effects as well.
  • Individuality
    Yes, I know. It’s called zombies RUN, but I would like to have some choice of sport. Cycling to work for example. Also: Gaining XP Points for my activities would be pretty cool!
    Which brings me to the next point – timeframe. It would be cool to pre define a running time. 10 minutes while walking to work or cycling. You don’t even need a full story, more something like a xp gain quest to collect some items.
    Also this could give me some way to have a complete story in my workout time. Sometimes I have 30 minutes. Sometime an hour. Perhps I could tell the system how much time I have and the stories are eddited accordingly.
  • Treadmills
    Not everybody lives near a nice running stretch outdoors. So sometimes or all of the time you have to use a treadmill. It would be nice to track those too. Just give me some input fields on distance and time.

Other from that – I love the idea. Stuff like this brings us closer to holodecks.
