Earlier this year, Telltale Games released The Walking Dead: Season One in the Amazon Appstore, but gave it exclusive availability on the Kindle Fire. If you've been waiting (as I have) for this one to finally make its way to other Android devices, today's the day – it's now available in Google Play. No, that rhyme wasn't intentional. I promise. Anyway, for those who may not be familiar with Telltale's rendition of The Walking Dead universe, this is a point-and-click adventure game based on the comic book. You won't find Rick, Carl, Shane, or many other popular characters from the TV series along for the ride; instead, this one follows the story of a different set of characters as they try to make sense of (and survive) their new zombie-infested world. This title has long been available for consoles like the PS3, but the transition to mobile makes a lot of sense, as the simple nature of the gameplay makes for easy touch-based actions. The game also supports controller input for those who want to play on SHIELD or with MOGA. The first episode is a free download, though the episodes two thru five, along with the special episode "400 Days", cost $5 a pop. There's also the option of saving some funds by bulk-buying all episodes for $15.

I dont think many have missed the game that propelled telltale games to the next level, but if you havent heard of it heres a short rundown: It is more or less a choose your own adventure mixed with a tv-series. There are action scenes but the main focus is on the interaction between characters and decisions, which usually have big impacts on the story. Add to this that all choices, dialogue and otherwise is on a timer, and you will find yourself in some quite stressfull situations, not always caused by the zombies. i really recommend playing this, when youre done you really feel like you have seen a whole season of a tv series and formed relationships with the characters. It works great on tablets and the first episode of five is free, so try it out!
