Today, NHN Corporation (KSE: 035420) has announced that they will be
globally launching the mobile hack-and-slash action game 'Undead
Slayer' that has PC online game quality.
The background of 'Undead Slayer' comes from a Chinese empire where
the zombie hunter named 'Xiahou Dun' is battling against the undead
while he is trying to save his brother's (Cao Cao) life from a
strange disease. Players will be able to experience splendid action
battles with easy and simple touches on the screen.
The most impressive point about 'Undead Slayer' is that this high

one single developer. 2 days after its initial launch in Korea,
players gave top ratings to the game, and it immediately ranked No.1
in the Korean App Store.

Traditional smartphone action games used a virtual pad, where users
needed adaption time in order to get used to the controls. However in
'Undead Slayer', you can move and attack enemies by simply pressing
the screen once, and not even needing to click the screen twice. For
this reason, new players who are first playing the game can enjoy the
title with no difficulties.
The best game impact through 20+ splendid skills
The most appealing

by using 20+ fancy skills. Players can experience battles they have
never seen on traditional smartphones through skills that you can
equip by simply pressing the assigned slots for each skill.
Variety of maps and 90+ battlefields
By advancing to the next
battle by clearing each battlefield, 'Undead Slayer' has 90+
battlefields where your mission is to guard the food supply wagon, a
siege battle where you attack the enemies' castle, battles with boss
zombies, and many more.
