Shaquille O'Neal has returned to gaming thanks to Hiptic Games, the developer of ShaqDown. An appropriately ridiculous-looking Android and iOS title available as of today, this $0.99 game isn't going to win any awards for originality with its sidescrolling design.

Shaq has to take down zombies who have somehow mutated and turned into -- what else? -- "mutant zombies." Unlike Shaq Fu, however, this is only a buck, so there's a limit to how much post-purchase guilt one can feel. Who's going to be the first to bite here?
