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.
Experience a dark, visceral and emotional series where every action and decision you make can result in the story changing around you. This tailored experience means that your story could be very different to that of someone else.

Robert Kirkman’s undead universe comes to life via the talented team at Telltale Games, and every choice you make has life-and-death consequences. Scavenge for supplies, build alliances, and ultimately decide who lives and dies one choice at a time… just make sure you don’t lose your humanity along the way.
Good story, game design flaws
The story is good. There's no doubt in that. But the game was likely not made with the mobile platform in mind, resulting in confusing, clunky movement and camera controls. It's also a choice-heavy game with no option to save manually or skip cutscenes (many of which are unnecessary and lengthy). So it means if you were to alter the outcome of a choice, you often have to replay a good 10+ min of game, rewatching the characters engage in boring, mundane activities such as opening a door (every door-opening in this game has a long cutscene. For atmospheric reason I understand why, but they should only play once).
Did I also say you are likely to get some dialogue options wrong? Not because you would regret your choice, but many dialogue choices do not reflect what your character would actually say. The choices are a short version of your character's often emotional, long response, and there were moments that I went "wait, I did not mean it that way! I did not know you'd say it like a jerk...guess I'll have to rewind again."
The game would be much better if it were not so frustrating at times. I recommend buying the PC version, which at least has slightly better navigation.
Great story and variety
I purchased this game in 2013 on my iPhone 5s, so when I got the iPhone 7 this year I wanted to play this game all over again. I was having trouble, at first, restoring my $20 purchase. Thankfully, after researching the issue, I realized it was mostly user error on my part. They have trouble restoring purchases on new devices but there is actually a simple way to make it happen if you follow directions correctly. It's found on their website. Overall, this game holds up really well for being five years old and on a cell phone! It has a significant amount of choices that really do affect your outcome in quite a few ways and it ran really smoothly on my phone as I played. It's really odd to read such horrible reviews from a couple of people. However, nothing really gets 100% positive reviews. Just the world we live in.
