Into The Dead – History
Into the Dead was originally released in 2012, and the simple, single level, and never ending gameplay took the mobile gaming world by storm. With over 70 million downloads on Android alone, the release of Into the Dead 2 is probably the most anticipated mobile game release of the year. We were lucky enough to receive a promotional copy to perform our review (about the only perk an app journalist gets) and were even privileged to an interview which is featured at the end of this article. Needless to say, we have been playing it hardcore for pretty much the last two days.
Into The Dead 2- Gameplay
Into the Dead 2 continues the running theme of Into the Dead. Unlike Into the Dead, Into the Dead 2 starts off with a backstory, and the story develops as you run through the levels. The basic story line consists of you weaving your way through the level to reconnect with your family during a zombie apocalypse. Completion of a level requires you to run a certain distance but also throws in a few challenges along the way during your nice little jog similar to a scene typical of the movie “Dawn of The Dead.” The challenges vary but are typically all kill related and you are awarded stars for the successful completion of each one. The controls are improved and simplified. You are not presented with an option to choose your controls like in Into the Dead, but “forget about it” because the developers established a set of elementary controls. Your left thumb changes your running direction while the right thumb shoots and switches your weapons. It’s that simple! During the course of the levels, you pick up pieces of weapons which allow you to build into better weapons at the end of each level. The zombies become more challenging to eliminate as the game runs on (I just won’t stop working in these horrible puns) so you will need to make sure you focus on collecting and building stronger weapons at each level.
Into The Dead 2 – The Final Run
The simplistic style makes playing the game straightforward and the large quantity of levels, new weapons, and mini challenges keeps you excited. The graphics are some of the best I have viewed for a mobile game and are probably even better on an iPad or tablet. Regardless, if you have read to this point of my article, I know you are going to download the game, but if you didn’t play Into the Dead and are on the fence about this game, download it now.
