Dead Exit is an undead apocalypse, base management, card game. Ok, it's possibly the only undead apocalypse, base management, card game. Each player controls a base and tries to outmanoeuvre their opponents and survive the evacuation of a city. Play your cards right. Make alliances. Break alliances. Betray sworn allies at the worst possible time and leave them to get eaten by the hordes. It's up to you how you play it, just make sure you get out of the city with enough resources to survive! You don't have to screw everyone over, you could play cooperatively and try to make sure everyone gets out alive in multiplayer. Or you can play on your own in solitaire mode which has plenty of settings for a casual quick game or an intense skin of your teeth undead fest. It's really up to you...

Review imageRiding the peak of the wave of the global interest in anything zombie related, Dead Exit is a console based card game that is pretty easy to pick up and play - even if you've never played a card game like this before.

We played this before and during launch and so the online multiplayer facility wasn't really at its best (as it seemed difficult to find a game). But the offline solitaire mode is adequate enough. In fact, until you get the hang of the game's mechanics, you'll probably want to stick to the offline mode anyway.

Review imageThere's a handy tutorial that takes you through the basics, before setting you loose on a simple game (where you have to acquire just one each of the four resources: food, fuel, survivor and vehicle) before your base is overrun by the undead), but as the difficulty ramps up you'll have to complete harder quests as well as handle more than one base.

Graphically, the game is simple, but attractive and the fact that no two games are the same makes for an interesting experience. It's certainly one you'll keep coming back to.
