Dead Rising is headed to the iPhone for the holidays, bringing with it the ability to beat up zombies with a wide assortment of objects, but not, it seems, the ability to separate zombie limb from zombie body.

Slide to Play says the game won't have boss fights, escort missions, photography, costumes or driving vehicles. Instead the game is all about beating zombies to immobility.

There is at least one neat new feature in the game. If you get taken down you can post a rescue request through Facebook or Twitter. By entering in the special code in the request, a gamer can find and rescue you, which means no death penalties.
