AN ORIGINAL DEAD SPACE STORY DESIGNED FOR iOS
Featuring hardcore gameplay with enhanced graphics for iPad 2 and a rich audio experience, immerse yourself in events that unleash the Necromorph horde again and set the stage for the horrifying action of Dead Space 2. Hailed by fans and critics, this stunning vision of the Dead Space franchise is truly a landmark must-play.

ENTER SURVIVAL MODE FOR THE NASTIEST NECROMORPH RUSH YET
With two engrossing channels of gameplay, Survival Mode offers as much strategic dismemberment as you can stomach. Hack and shoot your way through 4 maps in both ENDLESS and 5 MINUTES TO KILL modes. Bring in weapons, suits, and ammo from Story Mode, rack up big combos, and earn more credits!

A CHARGED SENSORY EXPERIENCE
Featuring a fully voice-acted stereo soundtrack, plus a movie-quality score and sound effects, we recommend experiencing the game with headphones for full immersion. Cutting-edge visuals, rich in effects and atmospheric lighting, reproduce the cinematic horror of the console experience.

INTUITIVE CONTROLS FOCUS YOU ON THE ACTION
The on-screen HUD is seamlessly integrated into the game. Navigate 6 varied environments and battle Necromorphs with simple swipe and tap controls.

INTRODUCING 2 EXCLUSIVE WEAPONS & FEATURING CLASSIC MODULES
Access the ALL-NEW Plasma Saw and Core Extractor, plus 3 more weapons from the Dead Space universe and get on with the business of strategic dismemberment. Also utilize Kinesis and Stasis Modules well-known to players of the console game.

INSTANTLY BUY & DOWNLOAD UPGRADES INCLUDING THE ALL-NEW HEAVY PULSE RIFLE
Enhance weapons and more with additional Power Nodes. Increase offensive and defensive capabilities with Weapon Output and Armor Integrity Modules. Or get the Credit Booster to scavenge more credits from dismembered Necromorphs.

Just started on iPad. Controls are not that good. I'm getting attacked by this baby creature. I keep getting this tap icon flashing while it's biting my neck. Nothing happens when I tap it. I just die every time. And this is easy mode?

Anyone have a solution for listening on headphones? The jack on the iPad 2 is in the lower left corner and makes it very hard to hold the iPad comfortably while playing the game as it jabs into my hand. The screen does not rotate if I flip the iPad. I'm very surprised that this was put in the worst possible position for playing games.

I am also playing on an Ipad 2 and it automatically orients to the more comfortable position (headphone in the upper right). I did notice that when the EA logo loads, it takes a little while before it flips to the correct position, so you just have to wait it out.

As far as the controls, I originally played this on my Ipod Touch 4g and it's definitely easier to control on a smaller screen. That said, I haven't had any issues with it not responding to my taps. Maybe restart your Ipad or restart the game and try again?

You have to tap multiple times then you can slash (swipe) its tentacles off to finish it. If you just tap once nothing will happen.

Quick question though for those who have finished the game. Can you somehow carry over your upgrades to a hard mode play through? It appears the only new game+ option is just to replay normal mode or start a new save slot for hard mode.

Is it me or is this game really hard? I'm coming off completing call of duty, modern combat 2,3&4, nova3 & a slew of other games. I'm on easy mode & seem to struggle a lot. They game is fantastic but it seems hard. Prob just me but wow. Tough game but enjoying it like crazy. Except the dying part.
