Survivor Z Review Are You Clever Enough to Survive? March 7, 2013 – Clovis L. Dye, Jr. Ever wondered how well you’d truly do in the case of a worldwide viral induced zombie outbreak? While many people have often envisioned strategies for where they’d plan to hole up in such an event, and which weapons they might prefer, what they often don’t consider is one of the most important things of all: what are they going to do for food and water? Unless you have somehow sequestered away years worth of food in advance – a feat preferably accomplished before the initial wave of zombie induced panic strikes – at some point or other you’re going to have to begin scavenging for resources, and it’s this idea that is at the very core of Mongadillo Studios’ recently released Survivor Z . The first – and easily most significant – way that Survivor Z majorly differs from the horde of other zombie games currently available on the market is that it’s a text based RPG, rather than an action title. After first completing the game’s lengthy prelude/tutorial – chronicling the protagonist’s run home, avoiding rioters and the military in the process, in order to reach the safety of the bunker he or she has prepared – the real action begins...

What do zombies and Foursquare have in common? Survivor Z. By Nick Tylwalk | Feb 26, 2013 Since I’ve never shot a gun and have a tendency to be way too trusting, I probably wouldn’t last long in a zombie apocalypse. Survivor Z by Mongadillo Studios and 3 Jacks Software is driving that point home even more since its text-based RPG adventuring and turn-based combat incorporates real world locations. Yes, the struggle against the undead is now personal on your iPhone, but that doesn’t mean it’s any easier. At least you don’t have to worry about any fancy goals. Your job in Survivor Z is just to keep living, period, something the game wryly notes that you can put your full attention to since you no longer have to worry about a job. The opening sequence of the game deals with the initial stages of the zombie outbreak, introducing some of the tough decisions you’ll have to make while getting you acclimated to fighting, searching and other useful skills. After holing up in your well-stocked bunker for about 10 months, it’s time to check things out topside and find out what’s left of civilization. It’s not much, to say the least, and you’ll spend most of your time scavenging useful stuff out of the remains. Food and water are the top...

Survivor Z Review Our Review By Jennifer Allen on February 14th, 2013 Expanding upon the offerings of its predecessor, ZDAY Survival Simulator, Survivor Z deserves to be quite popular with adventure game book fans. It tells an interesting story while offering them sufficient control over their destiny, also. It’s all about a matter of surviving here. There’s no deliberate mission to save the world or anything like that, it’s just a matter of lasting as long as possible, much like its predecessor. What changes...

ZDAY Survival Simulator: Shoot the Zombies, Save the World  March 29th, 2012  by Luke Patrick Reviewed by Luke Patrick When it comes to modern fads, we personally hope the zombie-mashing-blasting shooter is here to stay. There’s nothing we like more than sending some undead baddies back to the beyond. However, how long would we really survive in a zombie apocalypse? Between you, us and the walls, we haven’t got the foggiest clue. But, with that being said, ZDAY Survival Simulator by Mongadillo Studios takes us one...
