In Doomsday: Zombie Army, players must build a home base and train an army of soldiers in order to protect themselves from attacking zombies. This is achieved by choosing a base and tapping and upgrading various features such as weapons, defence, specialised soldiers etc. Once zombies are located through the radar, players must select and build an army and then send them into battle. Fighting is achieved simply by tapping the relevant group of soldiers and then on the group of zombies that you want to attack. Fighting is done on a turn by turn basis. Players can also join online alliances and fight together on joint missions. The aim of the game is to keep your camp alive and wipe out all the remaining zombies.
