I played all these games and all of them occupy large size of memory. Games must be in size that can not create lagging. You have to add this game "Zombie Shooter" in this category, it is less in size and has amazing shooting simulations.

Free download, but a rip off to play

The game has so many issues. There game play has been just awful for the past few months. Keep updating but updates don’t fix issues Clans are now grouping together to boycott the game by having there players stop paying for a thing in the game Clan members can’t play in there clan as they are glitches and can’t get to log into there game to play in there clan

Is It Any Good?

This zombie game resembles the undead because it shuffles along without any creativity, becoming a mere shadow of scarier material. Left to Survive is mildly better than some games in this monster genre, but it suffers from an abundance of following gameplay features found in other games. The zombies, while certainly well animated, don't show many unique qualities, and the base building game is average. What salvages the game from being forgettable is its well-paced action and a solid PvP mode. It also wisely keeps mission times short, so players can squeeze in a battle or two between trying to get other things done.

The controls are intuitive and the game does offer some diversity with the characters you can interact with, but the deeper you go, the more critical it is to have advanced weaponry. Although you can earn that through in-game currency, it takes a while to gather that. It's a fairly blatant effort to steer players into cash transactions instead, and you're constantly being pitched deals on more powerful weapons for real money. While Left to Survive could have broken new ground in the zombie destruction category, its reliance on bland gameplay and constant requests for cash makes it hungrier for wallets than brains.
