Gameplay

The gameplay consists of killing all the zombies that get in your way!

I love zombie games. I think they’re really fun as opposed to regular shooting games, they add a little bit of creepiness and adrenaline to the gameplay. You’re in a zombie apocalypse and you’ve managed to go too far out where there are thousands of them swarming the place. It’s your job to run through them to get away and shoot them while you’re at it. Once you’re at the end of the level, it changes to a cut scene where you’re speaking to your wife through a walkie talkie.

As you get through the levels, you meet a stray dog that you decide to befriend. I called him Tootsie, because, why not? Tootsie helps with the levels as he runs in front of you and attacks any zombies in the way. On top of that, you have to run over ammo crates otherwise you’ll be left without a leg to stand on.

I found the gameplay really fun and unique in comparison to other shooting games. I thought this would be a free run where you can go wherever you like, not similar to Temple Run but I’m happy about it.

Graphics

The graphics are great!

I am a big fan of the graphics, and I think they’re great for an app game. There aren’t many app games out there that I can say have brilliant graphics (to name a few: PUBG Mobile, Shadowgun Legends, I, Gladiator) so it’s a great selling point for sure.

Into the Dead 2’s theme is very dark and earthy in terms of color, and it looks exactly like what I’d imagine a zombie apocalypse to look like.

Music & Sounds

The music is very quiet and calm at the beginning while the main character is talking to his wife, once the game starts, the music disappears and pretty much all you can hear are footsteps, shooting, and zombies. I like how quiet Into the Dead 2 is as I feel it fits in well to the genre and it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. At the end of every level, I had this weird feeling that a zombie was going to jump out at me.

The zombie noises are very intense and can make you jump at times, especially if you fail to get through them and you’re one on one trying to get them out of the way.

Controls

The controls are easy to use!

Finally, a shooting game with simple controls. Hallelujah. Luckily, you’re on autorun so you don’t have to do anything there but you can drag your finger to move slightly left or right. To fire you tap the right side of the screen and to swap weapons, there’s an icon on the side of the screen to press.

Luckily, everything is really easy to access and it doesn’t get to the point where you’re frantically pressing buttons. Although, I would recommend running over the ammo crates whenever possible as your ammo runs out very fast, even with two guns.

The Verdict

What did you think of Into the Dead 2?

In terms of how exciting Into the Dead 2 is, I would rate it low. My reason for this is because it’s quite repetitive as every level is the same at the end of the day and it’s really hard to not successfully complete them. Another reason why I wasn’t happy with this game was because of how intense the pop-ups were for the store, every time I finished a level, an offer would pop up. I personally would’ve preferred to pay a fee for the app itself, rather than having to deal with this, but I guess it would lead to less profit that way.

However, what I did like were the graphics and how easy the controls were to use. The graphics and theme of the game fit in well with the overall gameplay and there was no chance of the controls ruining my progress because of how easy they were to use.
