The Walking Dead: Road to Survival Review – Worth Surviving For

Like most fare set in the Walking Dead Universe, Walking Dead: Road to Survival is a high-quality game, according to Gamezebo.

Overall, while The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is centered on the usual mode of delivery for mobile strategy games, the campaign gave me an engaging enough story and the combat was rewarding enough to where I feel comfortable saying that Road to Survival is a strong step in the right direction for the genre.

Konami Will Be Pulling Many Of its Games From the App Store

Brace yourselves: A Konami mobile game cull is coming. It might be temporary, but nothing’s set in stone.

While most developers and publishers are pretty good about updating their big releases, it’s inevitable for swaths of games to get pulled after an iOS update causes them to stop working, never to be seen again. If we’re lucky, the publishers let us know ahead of time what’s going to get pulled, so that we can make our peace with the fact that they’re still in our backlogged piles, waiting to be played. Well, the first big pull announcement is here, and it belongs to none other than Konami, who made (and apologized for) statements recently about putting greater support behind mobile.
