Walking Dead: The Game for iPad and iOS was released a little over a month ago. The game is of course based on Robert Kirkman’s excellent comic book series and the popular TV series The Walking Dead. Here’s a little more background via its App Store page:
The Walking Dead is a five-part episodic game series set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic books featuring Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes.
This is not another shoot ‘em up; it’s a game that explores some very dark psychological places, revealing that the undead are not the only thing to be afraid of when society crumbles.
In this brand new story, you are Lee Everett, a man given a second chance at life in a world devastated by the undead. With corpses returning to life and survivors stopping at nothing to maintain their own safety, protecting an orphaned girl named Clementine may offer him redemption in a world gone to hell.
It’s delivered in episodes. The first episode was included with the app itself on release, Episode 2 was released late last month, and Episode 3 is expected out this week. The game costs $4.99 and episodes 2-5 are / will be available for $4.99 each as In-App purchases. You can also buy a bundle pack of episodes 2-5 for $14.99.
I bought this game but just haven’t had time to even get through Episode 1 yet. Are any of you playing Walking Dead: The Game on the iPad? If so, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
