More zombies on mobile phones – and we're not talking about early morning commuters headed to London Waterloo.

Rather, the mobile game of cult horror film Shaun of the Dead will pit you against hordes of zombie foes as you defend your local pub, The Winchester, from their less than congenial presence. Weapons within reach will include a cricket bat, a shotgun, and a collection of vinyl records.

According to the official press release: "Shaun of the Dead fits into the casual gaming profile, and has been specifically designed to allow gamers to defeat the zombies with one hand."

What you do with your other hand whilst you battle zombie filth is clearly your own affair.

Shaun of the Dead will be available via various carriers across Europe from April.
