Welcome to this week’s Friday Fun Mobile Review: Walking Dead: Road to Survival! This week the review is a little more mainstream than the typical unheard of randomness that I stumbled upon in the app store. This week I bring you Walking Dead: Road to survival. This is a Game based on the comic books not the tv show. Now some of the characters are the same just with a different look. You’ll see what I mean. Let’s get to it!
Platforms: Android, iOS
Make the choices that lead to your survival
The game play is easier than you would think. There isn’t much to do. Upgrade the features of the town to help with the story and creating and leveling your team. As you level up you can add or unlock higher level characters to create your team.
Now you will be responsible for building up your town to help train new fighters and creating enough food for them all which you can buy your way through or just grind it out. You can use resources to purchase player packs and increase your team. Now you are given choices to make throughout the game that will affect which way the game goes. they usually involve killing or not killing someone you don’t trust.
The battles are comprised of waves of either zombies or other groups of survivors in order to advance in the story. The battles are turn based attacks from both sides. matching up the character types against whatever is weakest in the battle. There are multiple waves per battle so if you lose a character in the beginning of the battle they are gone but win the battle and you are fine.
Graphics and sound:
The graphics in this game are not bad for what they are. Barely moving stills. There is very little actual movement in the animation in this game. The movement is the animations programmed in when there are attacks being done. The character design is taken straight from the comic but no real work was put into the animations. The sound starts with an ominus backing track on the town screen which changes to an up tempo song with zombie noises during the attacking screens. As generic as you could get.
Overall, I’m left wanting more from a game of this nature. I think that because of the TellTale games version of Walking dead i was hoping for something with a little more action and less point click gaming. While not bad the sound and graphics leave a lot to be desired. While the gameplay itself is practically non existant. This game is only a few steps away from playing itself. I give this game a 3 out of 5.
