"When you have at least 8 zombies you can start an invasion. Invasions are great way to get some gold, and sometimes even brains. So keep planting those zombies."
Unlike other farming games that are just about planting crops, Zombie Farm is about raising zombies, but more importantly, using those zombies for invasions. In order to start an invasion, you must have at least 8 zombies on your farm and have the minimum level for that specific enemy. After you pick your enemy, you can order your zombies any way you like, or you can let the game pick the order for you.
Enemies are the people you invade in Zombie Farm. They usually get tougher after you reach a certain level, forcing you to upgrade to the next set of zombies. Every Enemy has a specific population of minions that is displayed at the top of the screen. In addition to the minions, every Enemy has one boss, who is attacking you from a distance while his minions are fighting.
In current version the player can invade 9 different enemies.
|All levels||Level 12+||Level 16+||Level 21+||Level 26+||Level 31+||Level 36+|
Limited (Seasonal) Invaisions:
|All levels||Level 8+||Level 8+||Level 8+||Level 8+||Level 8+||Level 8+|
The Minions usually line up one by one to attack your zombies when they get across the screen. The difference between your army and the enemy's is that (not always) only one minion can be out at a time, giving you a significant advantage. The usual goal is to get as many of your zombies on the other side to gang up on the minions as possible, also leaving a giant mob for the boss to fight afterwards.
You'll notice the boss right away: he's the guy on top of the enemy's stronghold. As soon as you send your first zombie, he will start throwing things down, or summoning some obstacles in your zombies' way as they try to cross. After you beat all of the minions, the boss will come down himself and attempt to fight off your zombies. The boss is usually notably tougher than his minions, usually with a lot of health and very powerful. If you beat the boss, you've won the invasion and get your share of spoils.
Hunger is a motivation for zombies; it determines how fast their meter will move and how often they get distracted during an invasion. A very hungry zombie's meter will move much faster and it will be far less prone to distractions. The amount of hunger is determined by the time since the last invasion the zombie was on. After a successful invasion, all zombies will be reset to being not hungry. Zombies come out of the ground starving, and become starving again 8 hours after each invasion (Or 6 hours if using Zombie Farmer Head). Each individual zombie's hunger level can be viewed on its stat page.
DistractionsHowever, your zombies do tend to get distracted easily, especially when not hungry. When a zombie becomes distracted, its meter will stop and the thought bubble will turn to a random object. Simply tap the thought bubble to dismiss the distraction and get the zombie back on track.
SpoilsThe spoils of an invasion are pseudo-random, but also depend on how well you did in the invasion, i.e., how many enemies you defeated, how many zombies you lost, etc. If the invasion succeeds and you defeat every enemy including the boss, you are awarded an amount of Gold and one or possibly more additional items. If you win, but with casualties, you will get the usual Gold amount, plus the lost zombies' price. And if an invasion fails - that's it, if all of your zombies are wiped out - you won't get any Gold or Spoils.
