There’s tons of interesting games out on the market for gamers to partake in, but let’s be honest – once you’re done with your favorite games their is a void in your life looking to be filled until the next big blockbuster hit.

The game tries to take on the end of the world in a more fun way than recent games that come to mind, and will have gamers smashing their way through hordes of enemies in quite colorful ways.

In true Rick Grimes fashion, you are not one to let this stand and decide to emerge into the cartoonish yet dangerous landscape that the world has become. From there you will look for the kidnappers, and try to find out the truth about what happened to your friends. As you progress through the world, you will find a whole host of Infected enemies to smash your way through – in very explosive ways.
Infected enemies are hardly the only foe out in the world though, as you progress through you will be forced to encounter different surviving factions and deal with their violent leaders. The only real question you will face when meeting said survivors will be how best to kill them, as they won’t hesitate to kill you.
