The Walking Dead is a popular television series for AMC. That is probably an understatement. The show is so popular that now we have a new spinoff called “Fear the Walking Dead”. The storyline for Fear the Walking Dead is all about a dysfunctional family trying to escape Los Angeles after things went to hell. What is unique about Fear the Walking Dead is that it is the “prequel” to The Walking Dead. Fans are able to get a glimpse of how things progressed to the point of no return. Now fans can play the official game, Fear the Walking Dead: Dead Run on Apple’s iPhone and iPad platforms. It is free too, somewhat.
“We wanted to launch the game in a unique and exciting way that honored the great show on which it’s based. The game is both thrilling and visually-appealing as players try to survive the apocalyptic fall of Los Angeles,” said Mac McKean, SVP of Digital Media for AMC and SundanceTV.
“We’re all huge fans of the ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’ and it’s been great working with AMC to bring this game to the fans,” said Steve Escalante, GM and founder of Versus Evil. “Our goal from the beginning was to create a fun, accessible experience that stayed true to the energy of the show. We hope fans enjoy playing as their favorite show characters and competing with their friends in a world falling apart.”
Fear the Walking Dead: Dead Run is an endless running game similar to “Run Like Hell” and many other 2D games on mobile. There are In App Purchases for things such as additional episodes (episode #1 is free) and character packs.
