The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is a role-playing game for Android and iOS, based on the comic book series The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman, as well as the story of The Walking Dead TV series writer Jay Bonansinga. Road to Survival was developed by Scopely and co-created with IUGO Mobile Entertainment.[1]

Initially released in Australia on the Android platform,[2][3] the game was officially launched in the U.S. on 27 August 2015 on Android and iOS.[4]

On December 10, 2015, Scopely combined with Telltale Games to use some of their characters from The Walking Dead and made adaptations of scenes from episodes in the game as well as additional tie-ins featuring the same characters, in the Scopely release.[5]

Reception[edit]

Gamezebo described the game as a "mature role-playing game"', in their First Impression Review, comparing the gameplay to Clash of Clans.[2] Modojo stated that it was a 'clone of other resource management sims' that are already available on the mobile platform, describing it also as a "mature [role-playing game]", more so than an "action game".[6]

The game went to number 1 on the iOS App Store upon release.[7]

Scopely reported that so far more walkers have been killed in gameplay than the entire population of Australia.[8]
