A mobile phone game called Office Massacre has had to change its name to Office Zombies following negative press over the title.

The game centres around turning Monday in the office into a not so normal day allowing you to shoot your way through the other workers and policemen, to get to the upper office levels where you will face the big boss.

Alten8, the games publishers said in a statement: "Alten8 would like to announce after the recent headlines over the, about to be released Office Massacre phone game, it decided to stop the games release in that version".

The game's graphics featured cartoon characters with oversized heads, in the hope that it would be seen as just a game rather than real-life.

The company said that the game is being quickly reworked, and graphical and plot changes made to rebrand the game as OFFICE ZOMBIES.
