Featuring hardcore gameplay with enhanced graphics for iPad 2 and a rich audio experience, immerse yourself in events that unleash the Necromorph horde again – and set the stage for the horrifying action of Dead Space 2. Hailed by fans and critics, this stunning vision of the Dead Space franchise is truly a landmark “must-play.”

With two engrossing channels of gameplay, Survival Mode offers as much strategic dismemberment as you can stomach. Hack and shoot your way through 4 maps in both ENDLESS and “5 MINUTES TO KILL” modes. Bring in weapons, suits, and ammo from Story Mode, rack up big combos, and earn more credits!

Featuring a fully voice-acted stereo soundtrack, plus a movie-quality score and sound effects, we recommend experiencing the game with headphones for full immersion. Cutting-edge visuals, rich in effects and atmospheric lighting, reproduce the cinematic horror of the console experience.

The on-screen HUD is seamlessly integrated into the game. Navigate 6 varied environments and battle Necromorphs with simple swipe and tap controls.

Access the ALL-NEW Plasma Saw and Core Extractor, plus 3 more weapons from the Dead Space universe – and get on with the business of strategic dismemberment. Also utilize Kinesis and Stasis Modules well-known to players of the console game.

Enhance weapons and more with additional Power Nodes. Increase offensive and defensive capabilities with Weapon Output and Armor Integrity Modules. Or get the Credit Booster to scavenge more credits from dismembered Necromorphs.


“…a wholly original and terrifying experience splattered in deep gameplay, outstanding graphics, and chilling audio.” (App Store iPad Game of the Week)

Customer Reviews

Not nearly as good as advertised

I'm not complaining about ads or anything like the other reviewers, I'm just critiquing the app as it is, a video game, first of all, the "intuitive" controls while easy to use, are ultimately horrible, the weapons have the positions of in use and out of use, and whenever you move, the weapon moves out of use, even if you are in the middle of a fight, reloading the weapons which have very low ammo and that take multiple rounds to kill monsters, are horrible, and most times when clicking other items or trying to reload the weapon fires rounds that you really can't afford to waste, due to the low capacity of ammo you can carry, targeting is done by guiding lasers and sight, the weapons themselves work generally well as long as you aim properly under pressure, the game has its shock and surprise value of all dead space games and despite being a little lower quality as compared to the console games, is still ever present in this game, there are no lights on the weapons as in the other games, which is a disappointment, but in this game, makes very little difference to gameplay, movement and camera angle controls are good, but i would still prefer buttons to control firing and reloading to save on costly ammo loss, the game gets a 3 stars for the lacking and poorly designed weapon and fight controls which are the core of game survival, and ea just screwed it up big time, how it became so high rated will remain a mystery to me


It won game of the year for a reason. Don't you listen at all to those people complaining about ads, I've seen maybe 2, and none of them were in game. The minimal amount of ads don't take away from gameplay at all. The graphics are console quality, think XBOX 360. The story is mysterious and interesting and had me hooked for hours. It has tons of replay value such as going back and buying the most powerful weapon, which mind you, costs no real currency, it can be bought with all in game money! To further enhance the replay value, it has an endless mode, where you can survive as long as you can, killing enemies to get money, which carries over to campaign. Other modes are included as well, with concept art and other extras coming as part of the package. Aside from the purchase of the game, no other real money needs to be spent. The control scheme is a little awkward at first, but is easy to get used to. Lastly, this is not for the weak stomach, easily scared, or immature. Contains strong language, blood and gore, scenes of horror, and intense sci-fi violence. All the same, don't let that turn you away from the game too much!

Bottom line, perfect game. No problems, handles like a dream. And, at the time of this review, only $0.99! You can't beat that! Download now!

Dead Space:

This game brings you an immersive gameplay with high quality graphics that are simply amazing on my iPad 2 and now even better with my new iPad. Graphically, it is the same on both 2nd and 3rd generation iPad but the retina display adds better saturation, color and brightness which is amazing for the dark rooms one will be walking about. Overall, this game feels repetitive and I find myself looking at every corner I can to find any nodes, money, or ammo because I don't want to spend extra money on in app purchases to upgrade my weapons and suit. I stopped after 2 hours in my iPad to of continuous play but suddenly with the new retina display I kept playing and now I am near the end of the game. This game is really fun at killing time especially since the graphics look amazing for a mobile platform and graphics are very important to my gaming experience. The controls are very easy and just takes a little while to get use to. I find myself using my left thumb as the joystick but I use my index finger to aim my weapon. Aside from everything, the newest updates brings an intrusive button on the back menu button. I have accidentally clicked it many times. Debating if I should buy Mass Effect since it was recently updated to manual controls. However, EA seems to disappoint me with every update they make.
