The concept is good- teams are motivated to exercise and beat other teams, stay away from the zombies. The graphics are fine, the features are fine. The performance is not fine. - it takes forever to load each time - your supposed to be able to click on players to see info, it rarely works - it's slow to respond - it's unclear how you get points (or at least unclear to me because the slowness distracts me) Also, if you have a member of your team who isn't syncing their info, you should be able to drop them. Teams where all members are participating have a clear advantage.

Exercise inspired concept is cool. That's about it. Terribly buggy (still struggling to get my activity to sync on a Fitbit), not a great interface, and even when it's working the "gameplay" is awful. You (or your company) should just count steps elsewhere. Also, you can turn off push notifications and the app STILL pushes whenever it feels like it.

Take a semi-competitive gamer (myself), give them a game where they have to move around in real life or get eaten by zombies: Next thing you know they are walking 3 miles, then jogging for 3 miles, Exercising... My doctor made me play this, along with a bunch of her patients. As far as I am concerned, she is a genius. It is a little buggy, but overall works well enough to be entertaining and motivating. The whole "power" vs. "steps" mechanic is a little off. Our team would be scrambling around trying to get this "power" resource from logging exercise, just couldn't seem to get enough. It's also a little frustrating when a "challenge" ends, you can't get back in or talk to your teammates. Despite all that, its a brilliant app overall. Best used with a fitbit, but not required (can use google fit).
