    "The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is a great strategy mobile game to pass the time. I downloaded this so I could have something to do between classes on campus, and found it hard to put down when classes did actually start. I also like that the story isn't very linear, that you can make "the tough choices" sometimes."

This is also a continued story so you can go back and play the other stories before this game and get a good grasp on what is happening. This has a good co-op story mode, and has a raid mode that lets you get your zombie craze in."

    "This is one of my favorite games of all time! A new take on the tired zombie apocalypse, TLoU will draw you in with its deep game play and relatable characters. And the fact that they're upped the graphics makes it even better!"

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Capcom's 1996 release of Resident Evil is credited as the first game to boost the zombie genre? The success of this game paved the way for an influx of zombie-themed games within the industry. The games released vary, from first-person survival to side-scrolling action. The most popular releases in this genre are the zombie survival games. These games are usually mixed in with RPG elements, along with first-person and resource-gathering features. Among the number of zombie survival games in the market, one of the most popular is DayZ. Unbeknownst to some players, the game actually began as a mod for the tactical shooter ARMA 2 in 2009. Two years after the mod's creation, the development for its standalone version for Steam was announced in August.

DayZ incorporates realistic features and scenarios in its gameplay. These features are mostly seen within the game's environment, each with their own respective effects. Jumps from high places can inflict bone fractures, infections from wounds are possible, and fainting is a possible effect of blood loss. The game is set in a multiplayer platform wherein players can encounter and interact with other players. Whether these players are hostile or not depends entirely on them, thereby encouraging caution alongside teamwork.
