981310_512x512The Walking Dead: Assault is an episodic squad-based survival strategy game ,set in the events of the Walking Dead comic book series.

You assemble your favorite characters from the series – Rick, Glenn, Shane, Carl, Andrea, Lori, Michonne and into your zombie-hunting dream team, directing them where to go to accomplish missions. As you play, you unlock new weapons and additional abilities which you can use to try to beat your friends completion times (or just your own) on each episode.

With some amazing 3D comic-book style graphics and gameplay that will immediately hook you in, this is a must have game for Walking Dead fans. In fact, there is even bonus unlock-able content like artwork and wallpapers for your iDevice.
