The Walking Dead Assault rushes iOS
The plague of Robert Kirkman's undead has once again spread to iDevices, the comic creator revealed through his Twitter account today. The Walking Dead: Assault is an official episodic adaptation of the comic series published by Kirkman's own Skybound Entertainment. The first episode "Days Gone By" is available now for a reduced price of $1.99.

The Walking Dead: Assault is a top-down strategy game at its core, propositioning players with corralling together their band of survivors and mowing down hordes of the undead. You build teams composed of comic favorites like Rick, Glenn, Carl, Andrea and more, and complete missions ripped from those same pages.

You can download the first episode right now through iTunes – the app is Universal and has support for iPhone 5 Retina displays. Other games within The Walking Dead universe include Telltale's The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, a first-person shooter from Terminal Reality due next year.
