I am Harold

At first I approached this at an entirely superficial level and enjoyed a fun, addictive game about zombies. Little did I know that I the mental rabbit hole I was tumbling down. Soon, every minute detail exploded with layers of meaning, laser guided arrows of truth shot directly into my brain stem.
I have seen Harold and he is us! Fleeing helplessly in one blind direction until a guiding hand can, for a few brief, glorious seconds, allow us to transcend. To become whirling purveyors of death, of POWER! Destroy the zombies in this game and then destroy your life's zombies! The zombies of laziness, illiteracy, cruelty and greed. I am Harold, and with my Gatling gun of truth I can mow down the zombies of my life until all is flowers and bubbles.

Crashes every time

I just saw that this game was now free with ads so I downloaded it. The first time I tried to open it it crashed immediately. The second time it got to the opening screen. Despite the game information saying it is compatible with my iPad it hasn’t opened to play yet sooo.....
