AN ORIGINAL DEAD SPACE STORY DESIGNED FOR iOS
Featuring hardcore gameplay and a rich audio experience, immerse yourself in events that unleash the Necromorph horde again – and set the stage for the horrifying action of Dead Space 2. Hailed by fans and critics, this stunning vision of the Dead Space franchise is truly a landmark “must-play.”

ENTER SURVIVAL MODE FOR THE NASTIEST NECROMORPH RUSH YET
With two engrossing channels of gameplay, Survival Mode offers as much strategic dismemberment as you can stomach. Hack and shoot your way through 4 maps in both ENDLESS and “5 MINUTES TO KILL” modes. Bring in weapons, suits, and ammo from Story Mode, rack up big combos, and earn more credits!

A CHARGED SENSORY EXPERIENCE
Featuring a fully voice-acted stereo soundtrack, plus a movie-quality score and sound effects, we recommend experiencing the game with headphones for full immersion. Cutting-edge visuals, rich in effects and atmospheric lighting, reproduce the cinematic horror of the console experience.

INTUITIVE CONTROLS FOCUS YOU ON THE ACTION
The on-screen HUD is seamlessly integrated into the game. Navigate 6 varied environments and battle Necromorphs with simple swipe and tap controls.

INTRODUCING 2 EXCLUSIVE WEAPONS & FEATURING CLASSIC MODULES
Access the all-new Plasma Saw and Core Extractor, plus 3 more weapons from the Dead Space universe – and get on with the business of strategic dismemberment. Also utilize Kinesis and Stasis Modules well-known to players of the console game.

INSTANTLY BUY & DOWNLOAD UPGRADES – INCLUDING THE ALL-NEW HEAVY PULSE RIFLE
Enhance weapons and more with additional Power Nodes. Increase offensive and defensive capabilities with Weapon Output and Armor Integrity Modules. Or get the Credit Booster to scavenge more credits from dismembered Necromorphs.

Pros

  1. Using the headphones, you can feel the environment & really feel very very scared! Good for thrill seekers!
  2. Excellent Story, graphics & game play
  3. The puzzles & easter eggs are pretty easy to find.
  4. Ability to upgrade your weapons & armor in RPG like way is pretty cool

Cons

  1. The user interface is more suitable for large hands which unfortunately not good for small Asian hands haha, I wish the developer can give players the option to adjust the area where your switch weapons & location to swipe to kill the monsters.
  2. The game gets progressively impossible to complete and gets VERY HARD to play UNLESS you pay for in-app purchase of the game DLC contents which is VERY VERY VERY Expensive. I feel the developer should make the game FREE if they want to earn additional purchase from players OR they can lower down the price of in-app purchase and price up the game.
  3. It does feel a little repetitive after a while as some parts of the games repeats itself with harder monsters like the train ride.

Overall, this game kick ass against other shoot ’em up games with the immersive environments, sounds & intense animations of scary monsters!! haha. It’s not recommended to kids because it can be very scary at times with plenty of gory body parts littered around the game!!

Highly recommended during promotional periods and extreme gamers out there who don’t mind forking out some money for some horror & fantasy!
