While it has a bit of a learning curve, this strategy game will engage fans of the original comic books (and the TV show it inspired) as much as fans of similar games. In The Walking Dead: Survivors, you help three people set up a compound that will hopefully keep them safe from zombies. Using simple controls (mostly pointing), and played from an aerial viewpoint, this not only has you giving the residents tasks that will strengthen the defense of their compound -- such as building walls, fixing radios, and cutting down trees for wood -- but you also tell them what to do when those defenses fail (as they inevitably will), including when to use their special attacks. You even get to help a bit yourself, tossing Molotov cocktails onto the highly flammable undead trespassers. As the compound grows, you have to make life and death decisions, including whether to expand the compound or send people to attack nearby groups of zombies who are not a threat...yet.
As with any strategy game, this can be rather complicated and intricate, and may take novices some time and practice to master. But it's hardly a steep level of complexity, which means fans of the comics or TV show will be able to make sense of it. Similarly, while veteran strategy game players will find it be a bit a simple at first, it gets more challenging, and at a nice pace, as you progress. In fact, unless you really hate zombies, or thinking strategically, you'll find The Walking Dead: Survivors to be an entertaining way to pass time.
