The game play is similar to that of the first Walking Dead episode, with plenty of shooting and general survival-themed elements, but the focus is clearly on making decisions. In this new Starving for Help episode, choosing who gets food when the rations dwindle and whether to kill an enemy while a child watches are not trivial matters. And the game makes you feel the weight of them long after you’ve made your choice. Most downloadable games are one-off experiences where you play, walk away and never think about them again. Not so in The Walking Dead: Episode 2 — Starving for Help.
