'The Walking Dead: Assault' videogame available for iOS

Posted on


If you’re a Walking Dead fan, you’re probably preparing for the midseason finale by rereading the latest issue of the Dead comic book, or playing the latest episode of Telltale Games’ Walking Dead game series, or rewatching last week’s episode of Talking Dead for clues about the finale, or maybe you’re just staring at Dead overlord Robert Kirkman through a pair of binoculars and trying to read his lips to discover spoilers.
