Remember High Voltage Software's Animales de la Muerte? It was supposed to hit WiiWare back in 2009, but the 40MB download limit imposed on developers prevented a release.

The game has been stuck in limbo ever since, with a PSN and XBLA launch proposed but never materialising. However, that's all set to change as the title is hitting iOS on 18th April, with an Android version following in May.

Rechristened Zoombies: Animales de la Muerte, the game looks a lot different to the version we saw back in 2008. The crazy Mexican aesthetic remains, but the 3D visuals have been replaced by 2D sprites, and you now use your finger to draw lines to destroy the attacking zombies. Ironically, this makes the game a good fit for the Wii U eShop — perhaps High Voltage will consider bringing the game to Nintendo's new console if it is a success on mobile formats?

If you own an Apple of Android device, will you be checking out this title? Post a comment to tell us.
