    Downloaded it a few days ago but not actually been out running with it yet. Does look like fun though and all the reviews seem to be positive. Just need to get some music on my phone as I usually listen to my iPod.

    Well I'm pretty happy with it, it's the 2nd app I've paid for. Last time I ran the lane i was running down was dark and misty. I pretty much just legged it down that lane. Then started huffing and puffing. Running away from the zombies is pretty hard work though. Not sure how that works. I tried running faster then they kept catching up until I started to sprint then managed to get rid of them.

    While this sounds cool, I can't help but think it'll all end in tears when your phone gets stolen because you're checking it in the street...

    Not so, as your (zombie) senses will be on on full alert and at any sigh of danger, you'll just sprint off to safety screaming "DANGER!!! DANGER!!! DANGERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!"

    Add in a "Will Robinson!" and I'm in.

    I'll also accept "STRANGER DANGER! STRANGER DANGER!"

    You keep the phone in your pocket it's more of a radio based game. So you listen to your instructions via a radio frequency. And you ruuuuuuuun!!!!! Had a few funny looks when I started to sprint for about 30 seconds /

    What if you want to get infected by the zombies?

    Either "for teh lulz" or to create a cure before you turn... THIS NEEDS TO BE AN OPTION, DAGNABBIT!

    Maybe happens at the end of a session where you have to shuffle and murmur about as part of your cooldown?

    Or jump fellow runners and eat their braiiiinnnnnzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    There was a similar game to something like that on the Play store a while back, I'll try and find it again later if I remember.

    Basically you were either a survivor or zombie. Leave the app running and it will tell you if other survivors (or zombies) were in the area. Users could say 'A hospital is here', 'a supply depot is here' (which was usually things like the local Tesco) and if other members agreed, it got in (or so I understood it to work)

    Weren't many UK players, though, so I ended up getting rid of it. Yes, survivors COULD be infected and turn. Attending depos would allow you to fortify your safehouse (which would be your actual home), heading to hospital would heal injuries and allow you to get medical supplies, etc. Didn't quite agree with that - I can imagine a tonne of people showing up.. "Can I help you, sir?" "Nah, just treating my zombie bite." "O_O"

    Overall it seemed quite good, but too few players made it not really worthy. I wonder if it ever properly took off..?
