The House of the Dead Mobile 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]

On January 31, 2005, Sega announced that trial versions of the game would be included with the then-upcoming Vodafone V603SH.[2] The game makes use of the phone's motion control sensor; players stand in place, turning to face creatures approaching them from all directions.[3]

From the little footage of The House of the Dead Mobile currently online, the game has 3D graphics and recreates many of the original game's set pieces and enemies.

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.[4]

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.”
