The House of the Dead Mobile (ザ・ハウス・オブ・ザ・デッド モバイル"をオー Za hausu Obu za deddo mobairu?) is a mobile adaptation of the 1996 rail shooter The House of the Dead. It was released for select Vodafone devices in February 2005.[1]

Gameplay

The House of the Dead Mobile utilizes the phone's motion control sensor; players stand in place, turning to face creatures approaching them from all directions.[2] Screenshots show that the game has 3D graphics and recreates locations and enemies from the original House of the Dead.

Release

On January 31, 2005, Sega announced that trial versions of the game would be included with the then-upcoming Vodafone V603SH.[3] In 2006, as promotion for The House of the Dead 4, Sega added an official website for Mobile, offering 4 and Mobile-themed wallpapers.[4]

Reception

ITmedia reviewer Shio Komatsu admired the game's use of the Vodafone's motion control system, but believed that it could enduce motion sickness.[5]

The first, House of the Dead Mobile, is a zombie shoot-'em-up game from Sega. The screen shows the game scenario from the character's point of view, and as the player turns around with the phone, so does the character in the game.”
