The release:
Jim Dattilo and Choice of Games are pleased to announce the release of Zombie Exodus, a text-based zombie game for mobile devices. Build your character and fight your way out of a zombie-filled city to save your sister in this interactive horror fiction story. Gather supplies and weapons while avoiding the military, bandits, and living dead. Your choices alone control the story. Can you survive the zombie apocalypse?
In the classic style of text adventures which allow you to choose paths for your character, Zombie Exodus is an original story written and coded in ChoiceScript, created by Dan Fabulich of Choice of Games. It is a first person point-of-view story in which the plot progresses based on the user’s choices. The first release of Zombie Exodus consists of two parts and eight chapters, while future parts in the series will be released on a quarterly basis.
“I grew up reading interactive fiction and hosting roleplaying games with friends,” said Jim Dattilo, author of Zombie Exodus. “I created this game with a goal to give readers many choices to explore and to have them experience the terror and intensity of day 1 of an apocalypse. With the popularity of zombies exploding in recent years, I also wanted to bring back the horror and suspense of the genre with unique characters and a plot-driven story.”
Choice of Games is offering the app for free, supported by advertising, or ad-free for $1.99 through in-app purchasing. The full version is also available on their Web site for free without advertising.
Jim Dattilo is a lifelong horror fiction and roleplaying game enthusiast. This is his first work of multiple-choice fiction. He is also co-founder of Philadelphia-based Reel 9 Productions, a media services group. Professionally, Jim is a Data Analyst, working at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine.
Choice of Games was founded by Dan Fabulich and Adam Strong-Morse in 2009. They produce text-based interactive novels for mobile platforms and the web, combining the delicious freedom of the 1980s’ choose-your-own-adventure style books with the depth and scope of a bestselling novel.

What I gave it: 5 outta 5!! it's a blast!

Where I got it: iphone app store/ via request from Jim Dattilo

My Thoughts;
I have never reviewed an app before, so this was a first for me, but as both an iphone and android user I USE apps like this one EVERY DAY! I really liked this app because as a reader it was perfect for me, but I also have a dorky side that loves ALL THINGS ZOMBIE!! (I already had 4 other Zombie apps! :D ) It was so much fun that I had to include others in the fun, Soooo.... I also got Rachel, My husband Torey, My son Dylan and My Daughter Haylie in on the action! One thing we all agreed on was WE CAN'T WAIT FOR PART 3!!
Here's what they had to say about it:

Rachel: This app was awesome! I love interactive games (Games like Gears of War 3) because you get to choose! I loved how we had all these options in the story so it was great, and you got to meet some new characters along the way! Now where is part three? -Downloaded from Android Market for Droid X

Torey: "I died, so I had to start again and I made it to the boat and kicked Zombie ass the second time!!" - downloaded from the Android market for HTC Aria
(My husband who almost never reads anything played this for hours straight!!)

Dylan: I thought that the app was amazing. I cannot wait for next part of this story.- downloaded from Android Market

Haylie: I liked making my own character, she was cool and kicked zombie butt. The girl Heather is kinda stupid and I kept hoping she would die! Lol but we all made it to the boat, now I gotta wait to see what happens next! Downloaded from itunes app store for Ipod
