Into the Dead
Have you ever been afraid of walking alone in the woods and finding yourself in a mad dash through a zombie horde? Well then why not practice for that eventuality with Prodigy Design’s Into the Dead. The game’s premise is simple: RUN! The running is automatic, and all the player has to do is steer clear of the increasing number of zombies as he barrels headlong through the apocalypse. But what really is unique about this game is that it features four different controller schemes. The player can either tilt the device to make the character run left or right, they can play the game solely with a full-screen touch interface, or the game provides a layout that uses part of the screen as a joystick (either on the left or the right side of the device). This kind of consideration in a mobile game in unheard of and is why anybody who is looking for a terrifying experience on the iPad or iPhone should give this game a look.
