State of Survival Walking Dead Positive Reviews
Amazing Game!Update: I don’t know if they updated it or if the game simply fixed itself, but I no longer have the problem I expressed before. Now I can enjoy this amazing game to its full extent!
I absolutely love this game. I’ve only been playing for a few days and I’ve already become so addicted I’ve gladly spent money on it. But unfortunately I’ve recently hit a wall with a game mechanic. Within the game there are states that cities, including your own, reside in. I’ve noticed that some of these states only spawn a certain level of infected enemies, while others can spawn up to much higher levels. While playing through the main mission of the game I was instructed to find and defeat a level 9 infected. Given my own level in the game that would be easy. Unfortunately I reside in a state that only seems to spawn up to level 8 infected. And for some reason whenever I try to attack anything outside of my state it tells me “target no longer exists”. Well I then tried to move my city to a different state, but I’m informed that I can only do that before my city is over level 6. I am far past that and at no point was I told beforehand that it would be in my best interest to move to a different state. I’m very frustrated and I don’t want to start over just to move states because, like I said I’ve already put money into this but I can’t progress at this point. It’s an amazing and well thought out game, but this seems unfair..Version: 1.8.31
Easy to follow, low priced packagesI’ve played a couple of games like this one. Upgrade, train, defeat, support your alliance by trading and lowering their time to upgrade, attack other alliances. One in particular I played was difficult to follow at first. They gave a quick tutorial and set you free then never helped you understand how certain upgrade points applied to other parts of the game in order to increase defense and overall strength and knights. You needed communication with your alliance to get help. If you also did not buy enough packages ($5-100), you were going to lose to other alliances who were constantly attacking. This one however encourages you to grow your food and defeat zombies to get better. The packages are $4.99 which makes it easier. Also, when you don’t have enough resources to build or defeat, the game shows you how to get them with a cursor showing you what to tap to help you out. It completely guides you even when you’ve been playing for a while. Still very helpful.
There’s a lot of hidden areas to tap to grab the resources you’ve worked for. There’s events to work towards too. There’s also skins for your headquarters which gives you abilities and looks fun, theres options to change your hero, you can change your profile photo to your own or a character’s, you can also arrange your base and make it look however you want..Version: 1.8.62
Fun and Addictive! LOTS to do!I have been playing a week or so; it is a fun addictive game with tons to do. Pokes to spend real money on the game are pretty reasonably not in your face but easily found if you want to go that route. I did spend about $15 on a top-up special and it gave me a big start as far as being able to speed up training and upgrading of my buildings. Worth it to me. Heck, I’d easily spend that on lunch and now that we’re in the COVID-19 era, I’m not going out to lunch as often as I used to so might as well still have some fun! I joined an alliance that is casual but active, which is nice! I love the events and the way that missions and other tasks are kinda staggered so you can play for pretty long periods of time. I wish that I could queue up research when individual research tasks are less than 10 minutes, maybe up to a limit of three tasks. Not a fan of shooty stuff where I have to control individual heroes so I’m really glad I can set the shooty challenges on auto and 3x speed...it is amusing to watch the zombies shamble into bullets and die in that mode. Nicely designed, visually attractive game. I will play for a long time, for sure. I wish there was more stuff to decorate my settlement with! Maybe I will discover there are as I progress..Version: 1.8.62
Needs some additional helpOkay so the game is basically pretty cool but it has some draw backs first of all u less you spend money it’s hard to collect all the players cause you have to collect pieces of them and if you get them you rarely get them again to level up but you’ll get the same 2 characters till there generals and the dam game goes into over drive and when you do the searches like your supposed to now all of a sudden the game wants to give you 5 of that character now and you cannot even use them any more why not rotate the players you do need why does it give you the same 2 people and you can’t use those pieces anymore. Also when your in a clan you cannot share your resources with you guild mates on all other games you can share supplies within your guild and they tax you for it which is very helpful cause if your attacked and all of your supplies are taken and they have killed all your troops it will take you a week just to get back to what you had because it takes for ever to collect the resources back to get your troops back if you could share withi. Your guild you could put a tax on the resources that you share so like if you shared a million food or wood the tax could be high to begin with but if you leveled up say a trading station your taxes of resoreces could be reduced but never less than say 10% I just wish it would be more team friendly that away. Other then that it’s an okay game.Version: 1.9.31
Love it! BUT...I love this game highly addicted and happy to have spent money on it. There hasn’t been a game I’ve actually enjoyed this much until this game. BUT, I have recently hit a brick wall, I’m a clan leader but the alliance has hit a brick wall with the alliance towers and research because there are no Gas Alliance Nodes along the outskirts meaning you have to move closer towards the middle to get Gas alliance nodes, unfortunately it also makes it harder to move because clans already Staken claim to areas within the map making it harder for smaller clans to grow and build along side of them. Honestly there should be more Gas alliance nodes all over the map especially on the outskirts of the map so it’s fair for all alliances. Also there should also be a way to @ people in chat whether it’s one person or the clan as a whole. Lastly I feel like clan leaders should have more reign during alliance events for example Alliance Showdown, give the clan leader the chance to move people to different lanes.
Honestly, I want to give this game 5 stars hands down, but there are just things that limit growth in the game whether it’s individual or as a clan. But I still love the game I just wish things could be added to the game ie; Gas Alliance Nodes around the outskirts, since there are already farm, wood, and metal Nodes. It forces smaller clans to have to move where there is no space cause stronger clans already taken up space in the central parts of the map..Version: 1.8.50
Good game with the same old storyThe game is fun and the graphics are very well done. But as is the norm for this type of game it’s fun for a few days then you need to shell out $$$ to get things done without waiting hours for upgrades on buildings or troops to finish. This game has good game play and lots of missions to keep you busy but once again it’s a game where the biggest players destroy the smaller players constantly so what’s the sense of playing. I don’t mind being attacked and losing a battle and resources but there no way to continue to grow when you are attacked and destroyed several times a day. Put a limit on how much a player can lose before a free and I mean free shield pops up to save loss of resources based on player level. I liked this game and even in an alliance you get destroyed. It’s a shame I don’t mind spending here and there to play but the cost of a shield is way too expensive. Just another good game that’s going to lose out on the volume of player to please the few big spenders. Such a shame this was a well designed game. It’s almost a great game. But who wants to grind and have nothing to show for it when your not on and have to start over. If you lose a battle pvp you might as well quit moving your base and a shield (peace flare) will break you wallet. I understand the game needs to make money but 100 small spenders will spend more than 1 big spender food for thought..Version: 1.9.91
Average free game with good graphicsOverall SoS is a good enough game for being free. The graphics are good and there’s plenty of content to do for being a free game. That being said, the developers make it clear they want you to spend money by constantly putting different ‘packs’ everywhere on your screen that can be purchased. One example is that every time you load the game there’s a pack that is offered for 4.99 (right now it’s the Survival of the Fittest pack). You can also pay to have a second construction slot to upgrade buildings, which is reasonable for the price. What isn’t reasonable is that every time you create a new character, you have to purchase the second construction slot again. This was very misleading because I purchased it on my first character thinking it was a one-time only purchase because it literally says that in the game! The game can be played without ever having to pay money, but just know that you won’t ever be as powerful as the people who pay for power(yes this game is pay-to-win). I’ve been playing this game for over 10 months now and I do enjoy it, although sometimes I do get annoyed at how much the game tries to advertise different things that can be purchased. If you are looking for a new game to play that is free I would recommend trying out SoS, but just note that it’s pay-to-win and you’re going to get bombarded with ‘deals’ and offers in the game..Version: 1.9.20
AddictiveAddictive game. The first few levels are great but as you advance upgrades to your buildings take longer and longer until upgrades take hours to complete. To make matters worse you hit a wall on what you can do without upgrading. You cannot queue up your upgrades so the next one starts when the one you are working on finishes. That would be a great feature to help with advancing gameplay while you are off doing real life things like working, going to school or sleeping. You cannot add a second construction slot to work on other things unless you pay real money. The same goes for training troops. At higher levels it takes hours. Upgrading your hero hits a wall. The really good upgrades, you guessed it, costs real money. Exploring the world? You can send out tow groups to gather resources, which once again, takes hours on higher levels. You cannot get more groups to send out unless, you guessed it again, pay real money. Researching new technologies. You hit the upgrade wall and you can’t research more than one thing at a time unless, you guessed it, pay real money. Do you see a pattern emerging? After a certain point this becomes a wait forever for something to happen or pay to play. I am almost a week into it and have already hit the pay to play wall. I don’t see it staying on my iPad more than another week unless something changes..Version: 1.8.40
Different from the othersI began playing this game out of boredom with no expectations or desire to continue to play past the first day. This was not the case however. As soon as I went through the standard learning curve that all mobile RPG/Strategy base building games have, I knew it was a game I can see myself playing and investing time into. This game has a lot of the elements that other successful and popular games of the same genre has, but it is unique enough to keep you interested because it has added features and mechanics to the game that I personally haven’t seen in others. This game doesn’t feel like a “copy and paste” clone of other well known games that many many others on the app stores have become. The best part about this game in my opinion, is that I do not feel as if it a straight up cash grab game that pressures you into feeling like the only way you will succeed is if you spend a lot of money; if I spend any money, it will be because I want to not because I feel as if I have to. You can enjoy and actually compete within the game without ever spending any money. Overall, it’s a well made game that’s unique enough for veteran mobile game players to at least try out!.Version: 1.8.31
Great game butI love the game but if the creators are reading the reviews please listen to this one I would like more customization in the construction area of decorations because I want to customize my HQ more like for example add something like cut down logs to sit on for like a camp fire set up like I can put a mini bonfire then put logs around it and have a little camp set up and other customization things around the game like customizing your own character you can unlock things like shirts shoes socks pants accessories like jewelry sunglasses or glasses and you don’t have to go that far into it but add things like eyecolor and facial hair and expressions. Please! Let us have a 360 view so we can move around our view so we can see more to the HQ and other things in the game and also let us rotate things that we were allowed to rotate before like our warehouse or farm or lumberyard in those rotate those all the stuff so we can customize it more to this will be a big update but please do it if other people are reading this please like it so they can do this you don’t have to but if you agree you can. 😀👍😍👌 great job on the game Kings group loving it so far just more customization please.Version: 1.9.120
Wonderful progression in statesThis game is wonderful. The world is broken down into states. Each state is independent and the game promotes cooperation within that state. If you join a newly created state, the zombies that appear on the map are less powerful and the “high level” areas of the map are locked down. As the state grows over time, higher levels of zombies unlock and eventually your state unlocks the ability to have a player to be the governor of the state and grant state wide buffs using currency earned by everyone in that state and eventually battle against other states. I’m not sure if it is due to state specific player enforced rules, but players in my state do not zero out bases or pick on low level bases as I have experienced on other war style games. It is possible to be competitive by investing time into the game without paying but as in most games, I suspect the top 10 teams are made up mostly of people who spend money every week. There are a good number of events that rotate and some that appear as your state progresses..Version: 1.9.50
Don’t put money or time into a game that requires you to bind your account.The app restarted my game when I upgraded my phone. Don’t put your money or time into this game unless you can bind the account. It’s been over a week since I last logged in. Several active players sent Help and Support messages about what happened. Help and support is useless even though you send screenshots of all the transactions, chief information, coordinates, etc. I hope players are still active if I ever get my account back. Other than that I had fun playing the game. I enjoyed customizing my settlement and teaming with other players to fight the plague. If help and support were better this would be a five star game.
Help and Support was able to relocate my account after 26 days and I’m happy to play again. Unfortunately my base’s resources and troops were all depleted and I couldn’t start off running. My absence has impacted the alliance and many players lost interest in the game. I tried my best by purchasing several packs to rebuild my settlement and troops but I wasn’t the strong player that I used to be. I tried to motivate players to participate in events but we weren’t able to place anymore. It’s sad to see the players that I invested my time into leave the game. I tried my best..Version: 1.5.52
Better than Most!I’ve played this game fore only 3 days but I can tell that this is a different experience than what I’m used to. I’m this game there are so many different gameplay mechanics that you may forget. Not only can you attack other players bases, but there is a single player mode, and side quests. The single player missions are similar in terms of gameplay and the story may be not that fleshed out, but it’s still highly enjoyable. However this is a free to play game, so how are the micro transactions handled? Unfortunately every time you load up the game they will shove a micro transaction opportunity done your throat. They also put micro transaction logos over key buildings in the game in the hope that players will click on them. I have done this several times and it’s an annoyance in my opinion. I understand why they do this, but I still don’t agree with it. However the positive to all of this? You DO NOT need to buy these transactions to progress at an acceptable pace. There are plenty of ways to speed up building construction and scientific research. Overall I think if you like zombie games, base builder, and simply want something to pass the time download this game and try it out..Version: 1.5.52
Update 1.9 was terribleThis game is good for what it is. It’s a zombie survival game. I mean I spend more time fighting other survivors than zombies, but whatever. I enjoy it for the events and the fun I have with the players. Overall it could be better for reasons I state below.
Each update seems to have more and more things that players are not requesting and less things we actually want. Please listen to those who are playing your game and fix the issues. We can all adapt to changes and work with new ideas, but completely overhauling something that has no problems, with no reasoning, makes no sense and only takes away from the gaming experience. Many of us have put a lot of time and money into the game, so consider that before just trashing what we love about the game and take heed to our suggestions. There have been update that came as a request of players, and that’s awesome but more often than not it’s a patch or a throw in instead of being a planned thing. A lot of players are starting to get stuck in old states that are dead, so consider opening state moves or combining states so those players can keep enjoying the game. Take the time to focus on where your money comes from instead of how you can make more of it. Thanks..Version: 1.9.31
LOVING ITI love how the game is baste on zombies I love zombies games so much it’s something that is interesting to me and I also love how the game is based on zombies because when I was little about three or four are used to watch The Walking Dead all the time my mom just let me watch it constant I really like zombies and gory movies so for me to download this game is a real treat for me. That is why I downloaded the game state of survival and this is also why I rated this a four star review it is probably one of the best games I’ve ever downloaded in my downloading history I am very happy to have a state of survival game it is also like I said a very awesome treat for me so thank you for Creating this amazing zombies game so for whoever made this game you are the best person living yes of coarse a lot of people are the best at living I guess but this is just the best game I’ve had so thank you so much for putting this game in the game store I really appreciate this and I’m going to play it over and over again all my life this is why I picked a four star rating yet because it has its ups and downs but I really think that this game has some talent and I think that I’m going to play all my life so thank you and goodbye..Version: 1.7.12
Not bad, surprisingly fun and addictiveI just downloaded this game yesterday. I have spent money on it, because I’m impatient and from prior experiences playing games like this. If you don’t pay for some of the “perks”(extra resources, speed up etc.); you will be a target for the really big spenders. They will zero you out and lose interest in the game. You can’t play on your own, you will need to join an alliance to make it easier to get resources and reduce the amount of time building and researching. It seems like the devs are listening to the players, on current event, they lowered the requirement to obtain prizes. The game is simple and isn’t too hard to figure out. One of the things I think that needs improvement is the requirements to get a peace shield. You have to use “bio-caps”, which are hard to get. If you get bio-caps, it’s takes a lot of them to get a 24 peace shield. Quick search on the internet, I found you can enter codes to get bio-caps and others things to get you going, that is a nice surprise. Overall it’s not that bad of a game. The packs are inexpensive, but they increase in price when you purchase one. So be careful and select wisely..Version: 1.9.120
Great Game, Horrible Customer ServiceThis is a great game to play, a little glitchy at times but things you can live with. If you are new to the game, start at a new state. If you go into an existing state it will be difficult unless you are spending money. Even in a new state, you have to spend money to level up and keep up with other players or you will get burned.
Customer service is pretty bad. I have had issues buying packs and not getting items, this happens more than you would like it to. And a familiar story among Alliance members and they don’t take banking transaction details as proof which is crazy. They want screenshots of the game etc when you don’t take as you never assume your purchase is going to fail. Also when you log tickets for things going missing in your backpack or using items that are taken away from inventory yet the buff does not work is troublesome as it is impossible to get CS to give you back any items. I have had to wait days for CS to respond and at the end of going backwards and forwards for a week, they say “No issue found” and you just lose anything that went missing..Version: 1.9.35
FunGreat time pass or buffer for another wait time game. Mini missions killing zombies and alliances. What’s not to loveeeeeee. People you rescue will teach you things as well as your alliance. There’s an open world chat with a translator as well. For most part people are chill can be mean to noobs and you can get your occasional creep. But just don’t chat or report the player. Most part those like I said people are chill. Been playing for a few days still trying to figure out everything. They offer a lot and don’t have to pay to play. Graphics are cool and load times aren’t a major. Can be fun solo and with friends/family. I do recommend this game based on the missions and not pay to play. There is daily rewards and things to keep busy as you wait for your base and troops to upgrade or train. Fun fun fun thanks these are my personal opinions and I did get a reward for this review. It’s nothing crazy just a simple thanks in game play. You can play at your own pace and not rush through things..Version: 1.9.91
Way more fun than I expectedFrom the ad I saw, I just thought it was going to be a sort of tower defense style game. It is in some aspects, but there’s really a lot going on in this game. There’s plot and storyline, interesting characters, and a large variety of tasks. There’s also worldbuilding, alliances, and of course there’s the combat which is fun as well. While there are a lot of of elements the game makes it easy to figure out what’s going on by making innovative tasks and goals. There’s also an interesting function where townspeople ask you little trivia questions about gameplay which help make sure you understand what’s going on (if you get them right you get a reward!). I thought I would just download as a way to pass the time but it’s honestly very great. Also while I haven’t had the game long, I haven’t felt like the game is “pay to play” as many games like this are. Now as I continue maybe that will change, but for now I am greatly enjoying it..Version: 1.9.100
Fun game!This is a pretty fun game to play and spend a little time on. I definitely prefer this game over to most others in the category. Games like Evony and Fire Age are not as good as State of Survival. The only game similar that I think still trumps it is Clash of Clans. However they are very different games so maybe not a fair comparison. This game is relaxing and simple. It’s pretty easy to progress through the game as well. However, the couple reasons that I gave this a 4 star instead of 5 are:
1. There seem to be a couple bugs for me. The one that stands out the most is the alliance donations. They don’t ever seem to work properly. It either says that I can’t donate or they will reset in 10:00 with a countdown timer that just restarts over and over again.
2. I believe the game could do a bit better at explaining some of the minor things or what specific buildings do. It does a good job of explaining the main parts of the game but there are some alliance features that I don’t understand as well as some of the buildings purposes..Version: 1.9.2
Found this due to ad from another game.. been addicted ever since!I’m someone who plays games, even puts money into the games for maybe a week or two then lose interest..... but this is not one of those games! I only downloaded it because it was an ad on another game that i got points from playing it to a certain level. I downloaded a bunch of games from my main game to help me get extra coins etc. like the other games.... I just Downloaded it then forgot about it. A few days later after downloading it, I ran out of energy on the original game I was playing so I decide to play this game to get me to the level I needed.... and I can honestly say I’ve been addicted ever since! That was about two months ago and I play for HOURS at a time! No doubt I’ve put at least $300 in it at this point, at most I’ve put $40-50 in other games. It normally $20 max... I LOVE THIS GAME! If you know the old game Left4Dead, it definitely has vibes like that game!.Version: 1.9.125
Distribution of alliance gas resourcesI love this game and would have given it a 5 if the alliance gas resources weren’t only available in the center of the map. My alliance is settled near one of the state borders and we can’t find any gas . We did not realize that in the beginning but now we do and there is no way we can do to fix this. The stronger alliances occupy the center of the map and it’s very crowded there as well. It’s so far into the game that our alliance is in the top half. However, we can’t move our HQ to where the gas is because we don’t have gas to build a new HQ (?!?!!) So we basically are STUCK!!! (T.T) I think it would enhance our gaming experience tremendously if the gas is also available near the border like all other resources. I love my current alliance and I don’t want to disband or merge with other alliances just to get gas. The alternative is to fight our way to the center but without gas to do research and grow our alliance, we are at a huge disadvantage in the game no matter how hard we play..Version: 1.9.2
This game is absolutely amazing!I have been playing for a little over two months. I am currently in state 652 and my name is and always will be thahaftoken. This game is not pay to win. You can pay to advance a lot faster however, this is not necessary. I have spent just under 60$ total in this game and I am advancing very fast and very well in the alliance that I am in. There are various events weekly to participate in. The events are fun and take some planning to achieve good ranking in. This game is very friendly. Each state (server) has its own set of state rules dictated typically by the collaboration between the top alliances. It’s pvp and pve but it is a very chill game and mostly pve in the two months I have been playing I have been attacked by one player. I love this game and will continue to play it for quite some time.
If you have ever played a game called evony and had a terrible experience I am telling you, this game puts evony to absolute shame..Version: 1.11.24
Great gameI love the game, it’s not hard to understand and it has great tasks for you to do. The alliances are a great addition because you get to interact with other players regularly and help each other.
The only things I don’t care about for this game are that
1. Building times sometimes feel excessive, like in order to upgrade your HQ, you have to wait several days so all your other construction is completed but you can’t do anything until your HQ is done.
2. It seems almost unmoderated? You can attack other players and attack other alliances, however there are NO limitations to this? The number one, strongest alliance can (and regularly do) attack the weaker alliances that can’t even defend again the attacks. I feel like there should be something in place were you can only attack other alliances within maybe 10 levels of your own, and same for other settlements in general. If I’m at level 22 there’s no real reason I should be attacking a level 12 or below because it just isn’t fair.Version: 1.9.35

Good twist on a Terrible genreThis game is similar to all the other build food train troops and attack people games but with a twist. This game has an actual good story and playable missions that really make the game a new step in the right direction, and I hope the devs will continue work on this so that it can get even better.
