"For those of a certain age who loved adventure game books, it’s the perfect app to play and one that players will find themselves returning to. Not least because they’ll have to be pretty skilled to ‘win’!"
4 out of 5 stars - Jennifer Allen, 148 Apps.com
"I've been having a blast with this since it's essentially gameifies what runs through my head whenever I read or watch a piece of zombie content, but it's also solid production-wise. I heartily recommend this to anyone that still has an itch for zombies, or even an appreciation of primarily text-based titles."
~ 4/5 stars - Brad Nicholson, Toucharcade
"ZDAY is a 21st century text-based Simulator game that puts you the player in tough, real-world situations. The game play is easy and you can soon control it well."

"4/5 Stars" - Dan Zuccarelli, Gamezebo.com
What better way to survive a full blown apocalypse than to PRACTICE? This is not a traditional shooter or an arcade style game where you poke buttons to shoot digital bullets at virtual zombies. ZDAY is a 21st century text-based Simulator that puts you the player in tough, real-world situations and says "what would YOU do?".
Created and Designed by Animator and Director Ed Anderson, and beautifully illustrated by renowned DC comics artist Matt Haley, ZDAY is an intelligent adventure game that starts you in a crowded suburb at ground zero of a full blown infection, and says "what would you do?". Faced with one scenario after another, the player has to make choices that will either lead him to escape the zombie-filled suburbs or perish like so many others. The sophisticated game engine keeps track of every decision that you make, and keeps a running tab on your survival probability based on the choices you make.
So keep your wits about you, and choose carefully, because one wrong move could have you facing a zombie horde or roving bands of trigger-happy looters.
The detailed results given after the player has completed the challenge provides very useful insight to what he may have done right and wrong. If the player wants to try again he can, and since the game engine reshuffles many of the exact events, ZDAY Survival Simulator is never exactly the same twice.
What's New in Version 3.0.1
Enhanced features, bug fixes.
How do I even play?
This game is pretty confusing. First of all, it took me a while to figure out how the inventory even works but that's not the most confusing part, fighting is. How do you even control the fighting scenario?!? "Lift initiate bar to advance"... what? I have no idea what that means; I lift it up but nothing happens. At the bottom of the inventory (during a fight) it says "No mercy" and then gives some + and - stats; what does that mean?! Also I hit fight and something happens but I don't know what. And after somehow finishing the fight, it still said I had 0 kills. Developers, please update the game, giving us an in depth tutorial on how fighting works because right now this game is practically unplayable for me.
Used to be great...
Prior to its recent update, ZDay was a lot of fun; sort of a choose-your-own-adventure comic book (sorry, graphic novel). With the addition of the new combat system, though, the game became nearly unplayable, and definitely less entertaining. It's no longer about making sound survival decisions, but more about navigating through a difficult-to-understand combat system. There's no effective documentation or tutorial to help players learn the new systems, and the game is now dependent upon a new and non-intuitive gameplay mechanic. With some repair work and better tutorials, ZDay could be great again, but for now, it's really not.
More updates and options
I absolutely love this game but one thing that makes me take a star off a 5 star game is that u can't find food or water or anything like that an u don't have a food an water bar or a health bar an needs more options an it would be even better if u played till u died like on the coast Mabey u can find a boat or be able to drive a car more than 10 feet other than that I love the game
