UK publisher Thumbstar Games has announced the addition of GunFinger: The Zombie Apocalypse to its portfolio of titles.

Thumbstar will work with the Pixel Toys team to publish and distribute the game worldwide on all Android devices.

“We can’t wait to see GunFinger on Android and we’re very excited to be working with Thumbstar to make that happen," explained Wafer.
