The House of the Dead Overkill: The Lost Reels is a rail-shooting mobile game developed and released by Sega for Android and iOS devices. It is a spin-off to the 2009 The House of the Dead: Overkill: Extended Cut.
The game features both Story and Survival modes. Weapons can be unlocked with Ka$h, the currency used in-game.
The game consists of four levels from Overkill and Extended Cut: Papa's Palace of Pain, Ballistic Trauma, Naked Terror, and Jailhouse Judgment. A character is chosen at the start of each level, along with a choice of weapons. Levels are unlocked and weapons can be upgraded as the player progresses forward. The crosshair is aimed used a virtual d-pad.
Like a standard House of the Dead game, a boss is fought at the end of each level.

Polygon. “...The Lost Reels throws waves of zombies at the player in both Story and Survival modes. The story takes place in three different worlds, while the Survival mode goes on for as long as the player can stay alive. Users can play with tilt controls or virtual buttons, or unlock a "Frenzy Tap" control method. The Lost Reels also offers unlockable weapons and special abilities that can be upgraded with Ka$h, the in-game currency.”

"Lost Reels consists of three episodes broken up into five stages each. You choose a character, lock and load two guns, and unlock levels as you clear haunted houses and zombie-infested hospitals. By default, you aim your crosshair using a virtual d-pad."
