The lights are on
Put away your crossbows, everyone. Shelter has arrived on mobile devices, and it’s brought with it the newest weapon of zombie destruction – the collectible card.
Illustrated in a graphic novel style, Shelter uses a strange combination of card combat and castle defense gameplay. Throughout five levels you build decks and use them to fend off the undead, all while searching for the woman you love.
Developer Survivalist Games promises nuanced strategies, determined by which cards you choose. Do you want to stock up on heavy weapons, or would you prefer to fortify defenses and plant traps?
Shelter is available for $1.99 on iOS and Android stores, $.99 on Windows Phones, and $2.26 on Google Play.

Oh cards! you are a nerds magic wand!
Sounds cool! I'm gonna check this out as soon as I get itunes money
Just picked it up and it is pretty pretty good.
That's an interesting concept.
I noticed the "Damsel in Distress" trope was mentioned in your article. In this case, the damsel is actually a key part of the crisis response team in Bristol that is handling the evacuation and the player character is trying to reach her while he has a chance and she has not left with the survivors.
I didn't want to follow the simplistic comic tropes, but unfortunately the comic sequences do not provide enough context to make this obvious.
Hopefully I can have it up and running again very shortly so you can all check it out.
