Merging the award-winning, smash-hit, indie game The Escapists with the worldwide phenomenon that is The Walking Dead, comes The Escapists: The Walking Dead. In this unique game, recreated entirely in the charming 8-bit pixel art style of The Escapists, you play as Rick Grimes as he takes on hordes of zombies let loose upon the world. Rick is in charge of a band of survivors featuring many of the original comic book cast, including Maggie, Hershel, Glenn and Michonne. Rick must secure the safety of the group by seeking out a safe escape route from each area, and manage several dangerous tasks to keep as many of the group alive as possible. The game faithfully matches the timeline of the comics, meaning Rick must first fight his way out of the Harrison Memorial Hospital, visit the Greene family farm before visiting destinations such as the Meirwether Correctional Facility and Woodbury. Protect the living and escape the dead as you play through the award-winning comic's epic story.

Love the intence gameplay when you are fighting walkers, If you are a walking dead fan like me, you should try out this game for $5

Fun but not worth $20.00

This game is fun but not without its (rather large) flaws. That goes without saying that this isn't a good game but there are some problems that need to be addressed. Mainly the length of the game's campaign - it's too short! I was surprised by the length of episode 1 which is nothing but a tutorial that took me roughly 10 minutes if that to complete. After Rick Grimes leaves the hospital it fades to black and you get a pixelated cut scene from Days Gone Bye of Rick reunited with his family, soon bringing me back to the main menu for Hershel's farm from Miles Behind Us. To someone playing this game without knowledge of the comics or the T.V. show might not think anything of it, but that's a HUGE (dare I say YUGE 😆) leap between story arcs because so much happens between the hospital and Hershel's farm that I was very disappointed with the game. I hoped to play through almost every issue, excluding the later volumes and experience survival and the raw emotion that I've come to love.

This could've been so much better...

Instead, it's a poor excuse of a game that's not even worth playing for free. It doesn't grab your interest AT ALL and gets terribly boring after 5-10 minutes. Just don't bother. Burn or donate the $20 instead. (NOTE: I bought this for $5 and still feel cheated.) 👎
