Overlive – Zombie Survival RPG ($1.99)

What’s it about? Make choices, explore the city in the zombie apocalypse, and try to escape before a nuclear meltdown wipes out everything in adventure/role-playing game Overlive.

What’s cool? Overlive is a bit of a point-and-click adventure game, and a bit of a role-playing game. Set during the zombie apocalypse, it tasks players with escaping a city before it is totally wiped out, and to do that, you need to manage your time, explore the city around you, gather supplies and other necessities, and fight off the undead. You’ll do things like train your character to raise your stats so you’re more effective in battle, and fight zombies with combinations of tapping and swiping during strategic fights. Your choices are important, because everything you do takes time, and if you don’t manage it well, you won’t make it out of the city when its eventual nuclear destruction happens.
