"For those of a certain age who loved adventure game books, it’s the perfect app to play and one that players will find themselves returning to. Not least because they’ll have to be pretty skilled to ‘win’!"
4 out of 5 stars - Jennifer Allen, 148 Apps.com
"I've been having a blast with this since it's essentially gameifies what runs through my head whenever I read or watch a piece of zombie content, but it's also solid production-wise. I heartily recommend this to anyone that still has an itch for zombies, or even an appreciation of primarily text-based titles."
~ 4/5 stars - Brad Nicholson, Toucharcade
"ZDAY is a 21st century text-based Simulator game that puts you the player in tough, real-world situations. The game play is easy and you can soon control it well."

"4/5 Stars" - Dan Zuccarelli, Gamezebo.com
What better way to survive a full blown apocalypse than to PRACTICE? This is not a traditional shooter or an arcade style game where you poke buttons to shoot digital bullets at virtual zombies. ZDAY is a 21st century text-based Simulator that puts you the player in tough, real-world situations and says "what would YOU do?".
Created and Designed by Animator and Director Ed Anderson, and beautifully illustrated by renowned DC comics artist Matt Haley, ZDAY is an intelligent adventure game that starts you in a crowded suburb at ground zero of a full blown infection, and says "what would you do?". Faced with one scenario after another, the player has to make choices that will either lead him to escape the zombie-filled suburbs or perish like so many others. The sophisticated game engine keeps track of every decision that you make, and keeps a running tab on your survival probability based on the choices you make.
So keep your wits about you, and choose carefully, because one wrong move could have you facing a zombie horde or roving bands of trigger-happy looters.
The detailed results given after the player has completed the challenge provides very useful insight to what he may have done right and wrong. If the player wants to try again he can, and since the game engine reshuffles many of the exact events, ZDAY Survival Simulator is never exactly the same twice.

Ratings and Reviews
Its a fun game but i would appreciate more options. Please update!
The game is great but could use an update because almost scratch that all the events in the game are programmed with no diversity I was killing guards at a certain point with a samurai sword and it responded as if I was using a gun plus there is no simulation of what happened in the fight there is truly no reason to collect items since they do not help whatsoever this simulation is not an accurate way to see if you would survive a zombie apocalypse assuming there is one it has been nearly if not already a year since its last update which makes me think of this as another terraria I rate 2/5 since you can't rate 1.5/5 from the full reviews
Fun, a tiny bit sloppy
This is a great game for a car ride, or for a get together with a bunch of friends, especially kids (like pre-teens). It's fun to have a narrator, and a player (or group of players acting as a team). The "enthusiasm" of the narration will enhance the fun as the player(s)
There are a few places where there are some typos, so it makes the game seem unpolished and "kiddie" at times.
Adults will likely get bored with this game after the first day, but it is great for when you have a group of young teens and they can each try to best each other.
There are also some generally good tips on survival theory, should an event in real life ever warrant such skills.
It's fun... and it's only $2.
