Dead and loving the experience.

THE WALKING DEAD: COMPLETE FIRST AND SECOND SEASON .PC, PSV, PS3, PS4, XBOX ONE, XBOX 360) THIS franchise seems to be able to do no wrong at the moment. With season five now gracing our screens, Telltalle Games' amazing offering is finally released in all its glory.

Across the multi episode outings, you'll face myriad gut-wrenching emotional choices to move the incredible narrative onwards, many of which will affect the outcome of scenes in the later episodes.

Mixing basic point and click adventuring with dialogue trees and those crucial crux-point decisions, this double dose of engrossing episodes paints a brilliantly bleak universe where there is no 'wrong' or 'right' way to progress.

Here, it's all about the experience itself, just make sure you have a tissue on hand for some of the more heartbreaking scenes. Rating SPLOT IOS SPLOT is a disgustingly cute little alien from outer space who has crash-landed onto a strange planet.

Assuming control of this one-eyed little fella is a breeze with surprisingly good touchscreen taps and swipes, as you set forth on an adventure to rescue a bundle of endangered Baby Birdlings from the menacing threat of the Hungry Blobs and the Blob Kings!

You'll be bouncing your way through perilous obstacles including spikes, lava, lasers, portals and more, but you can also level up and boost your abilities with power-ups such as the Magnet, Freeze and Vacuum.

All in all, it's a solid entry to the 2D platformer genre, with a wacky storyline and quirky characters to help crank things up a notch. Rating
