Cameron Summerson writes, "TWD: Assault is basically a top-down strategy game. As most games of this nature do, it starts off slow and simple, and progresses from there. Staying true to its comic book counterpart, basically the entire game is black and white, sporting a hand-drawn feel. That actually makes a lot of sense, as the game is published by Skybound – the same company responsible for publishing the comics. Thus, those who love the comics will feel right at home in Assault."
