I like pixel games and the Walking Dead and when I watched the Game I thought that would be perfect! But somehow it really didn't fulfill my Ideas at all.

I don't think it has much to do with "The Escapists" anymore but is still Fun and has been a good Idea of the Developers to design this Game. I find 3 Stars suitable.

Currently. Little Level (which, however, is increasingly becoming more heavy), made me feel well entertained while Playing and simply had the "demand" to Finish it. The Soundtrack is definitely to Recommend, an Ear Candy.

MAJ DU 16/04/16 the two or three Maj do not exist! SAVE YOURSELF! At the moment it is full of bug and it is impossible to assign keys... It's still very limiting but I recommend this game in 2/3 patch it will be OK.

If you enjoyed the first Escapists of the name and you are a fan of the world of walking dead, this game is for you! Admittedly, it has many small flaws, but we still spend a pleasant time, and the life of the game is quite firing when took his time and wants to do everything.

Being a big fan of the walking dead I took the game with great pleasure, but in the end I was very disappointed...-5-6 levels, of which we occupy during ~ 3h-many places/moments missing that could have made good levels, such as the city where Rick renco Glenn for the first time! -You can not change the keys, so required QWERTY command...-missing characters like Andrea, Beth, Daryl (present just in the TV series),...-being forced to stick something/someone to be able to interact with a big lack of content and poorly-paced gameplay (while the basic escapist was very successful), for the price of €14 anyway! And this is not a DLC of the escapist but a game apart so if you have the original game you will not have any discount on it. In short, even for a TWD fan the game is really not full enough to be really appreciated at its fair value, which is very bad
