Overview: Your family is dead. The Government has dissolved. The city is overrun with the infected.
Choose what to do each day and escape before your city is wiped out. Train skills, find gear, improve your home, explore the city, find pets, make hundreds of tough life and death decisions with lots of consequence, and kill zombies.
Overlive is a highly rated game that plays like a non-linear “choose your path” interactive story, with heavy RPG and exploration elements, lots of replayability, and combat. Check out reviews and features below.
“One of the things I really love about this game is just how much stuff there is to find. There are lots of little surprises and finding certain items that might seem unimportant at the time can really help you out in unexpected ways in the future.
Finding each of the endings is a good challenge that will keep even veterans of the genre busy for a while, and the frankly massive amount of events means even after finding all the endings, there will still probably be undiscovered nooks and crannies.
If you’re into adventure games or choose-your-own-adventure gamebooks, you’ll want to give this one a look.”

"Probably the best thing about Overlive is its ability to actually build a world and add consequences to random exploration. The game doesn’t depend completely on the player to discover and create narrative, but also allows for them to make decisions and impact the game world. This transforms the game beyond being a series of minigames with some narrative elements to a game that has players question whether a completionist attitude is really worth having in world ravaged by zombies.
Overlive is definitely a refreshing title that manages to stand out among the endless waves of other zombie games on the App Store."
