You better run!

Into The Dead opens with you traversing a dim twilight field laced with mist. Ahead emerge the dead, lots of dead, so now you better run! But this is no run of the mill zombie apocalypse game–it’s a creepy nightmare with a horrifyingly scary atmosphere. You run on, moving left & right out of the way, one wrong move and you become supper in a blur of crimson. A first-person view, there’s no music, only your rattled breathing, the sweep of your feet through the grass and of course the zombie hunger cries. At first unarmed and desperately vulnerable you must make ground to gather distance points. After that weapons, ammo and even canine companions can be purchased making survival slightly easier. As you dodge the onslaught and advance further, the dead increase in number, fields change to forests or cornfields and the night falls. Yes, you can blow their zombie brains out, but ammo is sparse and more valuable than gold. Life is grim, but zombie death is nightmarish–a game, hair-raisingly well portrayed in an ambiance of gameplay and graphics.

Zombie Apocalypse Pastime

What to do in a world of the dead? Why, complete mission sets that’s what! Into The Dead keeps you occupied with several levels and missions within each. Noobs in first level, Classic–Trial of the Dead, won’t get bored when they have to kill 20 zombies with the pistol, glance off 5 zombies, or make it through 10 cornfields–no easy tasks. Lucky for you, others have crossed this land and left weapons & ammo crates in their path as they failed, joining the ranks of the dead. Shotguns kill multiple Z’s, a chainsaw lets you storm a group, there’s even a crossbow à la Daryl of The Walking Dead. With each resurrection you purchase perks: armed start, head start, ammo boost, more crates or companion at 100 coins each time. Taking your chances with nothing will help you save up coins and weapons, ammo or even dogs become available during gameplay. Complete the mission sets and you move on to the Massacre, Hardcore and Flashlight levels and plenty more equipment unlocks. Using the Apple TV Siri/Android TV or Fire TV remotes, slide a thumb left or right to avoid the putrid clutches of the dead and click, click, click to kill (though sparingly)! There are a few tricks to get by here and there, but I won’t spoil ‘em!

In the end

Into The Dead is not brand bloody new on the games market, but absolutely a masterpiece in the zombie genre. Produced by New Zealand developers PikPok in 2012 it has amassed a 60M download horde since. Latest news: the game will be adjusted for land-based casino gambling play! That’s how much our society adores the zombie apocalypse I guess. Needless to say, this game is downright creepy, horribly beautiful and there’s never a dull moment–or intrusive ads like mobile versions.
