New screen pictures today of Dead Rising for the iOS. Use anything as a weapon. Chairs and tables move out of your way. They're not just a part of the background. A new mechanic allows you to call upon your real-time friends via Twitter and Facebook to help revive you. If they do so in time, they get bonus points. If they don't, you appear as a named zombie in their games. There is still the requirement to eat mall food in order to stay healthy, much like using the bathroom to save in the console version. Complex operations are performed through context based buttons.
Pictures after the jump.
From the press release:
"Frank West, a freelance photojournalist on the hunt for the scoop of a lifetime, pursues a juicy lead to a small suburban town only to find that it is being overrun by zombies!
He escapes to the local shopping mall thinking it will be a bastion of safety, but it turns out to be anything but. It's a true struggle to survive the endless stream of enemies, but with full reign over an entire shopping center, Frank can utilize anything to fight off the flesh-hungry mob."
