The difference between The Walk and Zombies, Run!

Hello everyone! We’re aware there’s some confusion about how The Walk works for those of you who are avid Zombies, Run! players. The thing is, despite both being awesome fitness apps that vastly improve your life, the two games are actually very different.


We designed The Walk to be more of an ‘all-day’ experience than Zombies, Run! We love that people are ‘going for a walk’ with The Walk in the same way they ‘go for a run’ with Zombies, Run! — but we also wanted the game to work in a broader way.

The Walk was designed not just based on the practical advice of scientists and doctors, but also with people’s normal habits in mind. That’s why it behaves as an activity tracker that encourages you to walk an extra five or ten minutes here and there throughout the day rather than making you go on hour-long walks with your headphones in.

The iOS version of The Walk even has push notifications that will alert you whenever you’ve unlocked a new story clip, so you don’t need to keep checking the app. Just set it running, forget about it, and check your lock screen to listen to clips in a row at your leisure. And when you’re ready you can view your rewards, listen to your new story clips, and plan your route.


We love long walks as much as the next person, but we know that’s impractical for a lot of people to do every day. Instead, we’re hoping to encourage you to take healthier routes and develop healthier habits — fewer car journeys or public transport and more walking, where possible!

Of course, you can still listen to the story as you walk, but as you progress through the story, you may find it easier to unlock a few clips before listening to them. You can do this by, visit the map selection screen and tap on the speech bubble icon, where you can queue up entire episodes to listen to.

Zombies, Run! is a great fitness tracker for bursts of exercise, such as jogging, cycling or long walks in the countryside. Whereas The Walk is an excellent way to track your every day activities. There’s absolutely nothing stopping you from running both simultaneously!

Have fun, and keep walking (and running)! Plus, stay tuned for more news about Zombies, Run! Season 3…

The Walk is OUT NOW!

We’re ecstatic to announce that our latest app, The Walk, is now available on iPhone, iPod Touch and Android devices!





$3.99 / £2.59 / €3.59

If you enjoyed Zombies, Run!, you’re going to love this one. And if you wanted to play Zombies, Run! but said to yourself “it’s not for me, I don’t run!”, you’ll love The Walk even more. Once again, we’ve mixed fitness tracking together with a gripping, immersive story and game in an unprecedented collaboration with the UK’s Department of Health and the NHS.

The Walk will track how much walking you do per day, like a pedometer, and we’ll set you daily goals to help you walk more every day and stay healthy. As you walk, you’ll unlock new parts of the story, which is told via fully voiced audio clips, much like Zombies, Run! The app runs in the background using our special battery saving tracking system and measures the number of steps and the distance travelled on any given day. 


There’s a massive amount of content in The Walk — over three month’s worth! It’s an epic techno-thriller that puts you in the shoes of Walker, a mysterious hero tasked with delivering a mysterious package after an explosion at Inverness station disables the entire country’s electronics and transport infrastructure. You’ll need to walk the length of the UK in order to find out what’s going on and who you can trust. If you make it, maybe you can save the world…

We’ve previously announced that Zombies, Run! players will recognise many of the voices in The Walk. We’ve brought back a bunch of actors to play all new characters in this story, including Philip Nightingale (Sam Yao), Olga Leon (Archie), Jen Tan (Runner 4 and Nadia) and Victoria Grove (Paula).

The Walk is perfect for anyone wanting to keep healthy by being more active. You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic, the game adapts its goals to your fitness history. As reported by the BBC, just 150 minutes of weekly moderate physical activity could significantly improve your health. This could be the most important New Year’s Resolution you’ve ever made.




You can grab The Walk right now from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Usually the game will cost $4.99 (£2.99 / €4.49) but we’ve cut the price by 20% for launch to just $3.99! (£2.59 / €3.59). Be quick, though, this special price will only last for a week!
