About this game

It's finally happened... the apocalypse is here and your only hope for survival is to outrun the zombies, rogue robots and alien invaders who've taken over!

A Step Ahead™ is a walking adventure game that's powered by your physical activity. Use your real-world steps and exercise to complete missions in the wasteland, upgrade your character, and go on an epic fitness adventure.

Getting started is simple:
1. Download the A Step Ahead™ app
2. Click your organization's personalized invite link or enter the Invite Code for your organization's challenge in the ASA app**
3. Use your real-world steps and exercise to go on an interactive fitness adventure

Adventure through all of the ASA™ challenge series:

The Outbreak™
Zombies are here… and they're hungry! You and your team will face a variety of challenges, obstacles and distance goals as you run (or walk) through a zombie-infested wasteland, helping other survivors and working to help those in need and rebuild society.

What happens when the world's richest man, Albus Mousse, builds a sentient A.I. and charges it with protecting humanity? It determines that the biggest threat to mankind is… mankind. Race to avoid capture while you look for a way to shut down the servers and free the people "helped" by the army of rogue robots.

They came from beyond the horizon, but why? And for what? Alien invaders are here and they're setting up shop on planet Earth. Work with your team across this adventure series to figure out why the aliens are here and how to get them to leave the planet.

A special series for challenges themed around the seasons, holidays, and special series crossover missions.

I had this app a few years ago when it was The Outbreak and it was fantastic! New phone a year or so ago and now I wanted to do the missions again BUT now the app is A Step Ahead.....absolutely horrible interface. Continuously freezes, never sends me an invite code. I have uninstalled and re installed three times and same issues. Ive never even gotten far enough in the app to even play. Sad becuase the missions used to be a lot of fun!! I'll be uninstalling and moving on to some other app.....

The first four weeks workwd great, but the last two weeks phone would freeze, my steps wasn't always counted correctly. I was always getting an error code the last two weeks. I do not think I would ever play again.It needs to be set up where you can have access to combine power ups with your teammates . Only for the first few weeks you can play competitively but the last two weeks with all of the code errors and not counting steps it was no longer competitive.

Really motivated me at first. But has major flaws. I was placed on a random team. It is team production based game. However not everyone has logged in either due to not be able to sync steps. Cant change the name of the team We are designated team2. Sent an email to support no response and no name change. Once you reach the first objective there is nothing to do to keep you motivated for days until they decide to start the next stage. While stuck at the finish line you get to stand outside building a wall supposedly. But then the zombies get there and you stand outside with the zombies for an entire day hammering away with no point at all. Over all this has a ton of potential just need to make a few changes.
