The Walking Dead: Season One Game – My Personal Review

I came across this game about a month ago. At that time, I was having a ‘Post TV series depression’ for The Walking Dead TV series. Ever since season 3 ended, I really crave for new season to be aired.

Please be advised, this game I play is for the Android tablet platform. The Walking Dead Season One game is a five-part game series based on the award winning comic book series by Robert Kirkman with the same title. In this game, you play the role of Lee Everett, a convicted criminal, who has been given a second chance in life in a world infested by the undead. Alongside Lee, the game also revolve around an orphan girl, Clementine. The story evolves where Clamentine is the way of redemption for Lee in a world gone to hell.

How does the game played?

Every actions and choices will affect how your story plays out across the entire series. Live with the profound and lasting consequences of the decisions that you make in each episode. You’ll be forced to make decisions that are not only difficult, but that will require you to make an almost immediate choice. There’s no time to ponder when the undead are pounding the door down. The way you make every choice in the game will determine who lives and who dies, who will become your ally, who will backstab you and lot more.

I had a few intense moment making choices when it comes to choose who to bring on the next course or journey. In every turn of the episodes, a new story unfold and more unexpected turn of events appear. Every time you think you are safe, think again. The place you found might not be the best place to stay. Starvation, infections and risk of disease, betrayal are just the things you could expect in this game. Similar to what you would expect to happen in a real world when things goes wrong and everything else goes to hell.

No place is a safe place. You will need to constantly run.

In the game, you will met a lot of characters that will add to the twist of the story. As to protect Clementine, Lee will eventually have to teach Clementine how to protect herself and how to become a good duo partner.

How does the game calculates your score?

The game will remember every choices you made in every episode and by the end of the episode, it will show a live picture of how millions of players around the world have responded to the horrors thrown at them in The Walking Dead.

The verdict to the game?

Seriously, this was the best mobile platform game I ever played so far. I don’t know about you guys out there, but this is just my kind of game. A role-playing game but with lots and lots of twists. For those of you who are not patience enough to play this kind of game with a long storyline, maybe you can still opt to download and play it when you’re really have got nothing to do. Its like reading a comic book actually. Either you like it or you don’t.

Owh! I forgot to mention that only the first episode is FREE. From episode 2 to 5, you will have to purchase it to continue playing. Although, you can try looking for the patched and cached version from the net but make sure the game is compatible with your mobile device.

Not just a free game after all

It took me about a month to finish the whole game play till episode 5, but that’s just because I need a stable internet connection to get connected with the game server for the scoreboard and to download the episodes. Worth the time though. If any of you guys are playing this game, please feel free to tell me your experience and insight. Share some tips too if you have any.

    • Yes, the file size is humongous and it became worse on my phablet because I can’t move the game to the external memory. I’m afraid I have to uninstall it someday to make room for season 2.

      Good luck running and playing the game. Let me know if you stuck on how to proceed to episode 2. I have the game cache hehe.
