Playing it now for a review. Only done the first few levels but so far not bad. Graphics aren't the best but I like the mix of tower defense and RTS aspects and there is a huge variety in level types to keep things interesting.

Agree! Not a bad game at all. The controls work well even on my phone (I was worried it would be tough to navigate the screen). Definitely a game I will waste some time on.

What's it about: A devastated father deals with the fact that his daughter, infected and suffering zombie-like symptoms, is due to turn soon. He has to make an important decision: turn her over to the authorities for quarantine or end her suffering himself.

What's hot: Arnold with the least dialogues ever in a horror film! But seriously, it's actually a human drama that touches you to the core. Anybody with a terminally ill family member struggles with the same dilemmas and difficult choices that Arnie's character does. As Maggie, Abigail is top-notch in all her scenes.

What's not: If you're the sort of horror film buff who enjoys scare-a-minute, jump-off-your-seat moments, this film will leave you high and dry. There are several lingering close-up shots, sans dialogue, that in all honesty, don't build the tension, but rather bore you to bits.
