I made a quiz a couple of days ago, but this one turned out better so I released it as a new one. The first quiz got a lot of feedback, which I used to improve it.

UPDATED CONTROLS: When told you can choose between MOUSE controls or UP/DOWN arrow keys and ENTER controls by clicking the screen or pressing ENTER.

The zombies are based on the zombies in the book "The Zombie Survival Guide" by Max Brooks.
In the second part of the introduction you can read up on them, but you can skip it by clicking the screen.
This is to avoid any confusion. We all have different ideas on how zombies work because of films/games.

Hope you enjoy it!

UPDATE[1.01]: I have now fixed the pre-loader, as it didn't initially show properly!


- You can now mute the music by pressing M.
- Added a question regarding explosives/gun powder.
- Added a question regarding first aid.
- After playing through once you can now read about the questions and answers if you play it again. You will be notified after pressing enter in the end of how it works.
- A zombie head in the foreground.


- Re-created all graphical elements of the game.
- Fixed some grammar and spelling errors.
- Added a line in the intro about the zombie's senses.
- Added some extra titles in the end.

Front Page!? Never thought it would be this popular!
Thank you all so incredibly much for the support!

This really condenses the book in a neat, concise way without cutting out too much. Although I think Zaneshift is being a tad bit too nitpicky about the zombie variety, especially since the Zombie Survival Guide was written for the Humor genre, as it says on the back cover.

many misconcepsions.

im only giving it a 7 because there are some misconceptions with the "Virus" you use in this game.
there are only 2 possible man-made zombie outbreaks.
and viral outbreak.
through viral outbreak, the body of the infected individual will go through some process that will probably resemble a horrible flu, excessive vomiting, possible nose-bleeds, etc.
after which, the infected individual will turn into a zombie, at which point the individual will lose all control, because they will be DEAD.
the zombie will be like an animal, attacking anyone live who comes near them, just kind of walking around with no purpose, doing nothing at all.
however, the bodies will not decompose because the body is not dead.
the brain is alive, therefore the body will follow, the only way they would ever rot while alive is if they had necrosis.
also, peeking in a door in a viral outbreak situation WOULD be best, you dont know how many are in there, they dont know your there, if you peek in you will know how many are in there, and they might not see you, while yelling, whistling, knocking, etc will cause every single one of them who hear it to run after you like hell, causing a feeding frenzy.
which brings me to the next point.
the body will obey the mind, and allow the zombie to run if they please, allowing them higher mobility then most people would think.
which means they can also growl, scream, whatever they want, just not talking, they loose all ability to after infection, because they lose all thought processes.

now, a mutation is different if could also travel through the bloodstream if it is constructed that way, but their behavior is different.
they could very well have thought processes, and even evolve after small amounts of time.
if their genetic structure was constructed through mutation, they could easily change in a small amount of time to kill anything they wanted to, and they could as well construct a sense of morality, to where they could start seeing eachother as the same kind, and even care for one another. (like in i am legend, good movie, if you havent seen it, you should.)
another thing.
the infection would only change the humans a considerable amount, but not enough to interfere with nature.
if you sever a skull, a human would die, zombies are nothing but humans with a disease.
if you sever their skulls, they WILL die, just as a human would.
blood loss, neural severation, hell even the spine's gone.
the body cant survive after this, and even if thier mind doesnt stop, their body will shut down.
and as for the breathing.
the human muscular structure NEEDS air to survive.
the cells, the muscles, even the BRAIN needs air to survive, otherwise the body would wither away into nothing.
breathing is a reflex that cannot be changed, if a zombie would move, and not breathe, their body would shut down in minutes.
zombies possess no super-human strength, and no other function the human body does not possess, they only have the determination to continue running after you until they die.
you can call this bullshit if you want, but i go on what is medically accurate, and i can tell you, all of this is, and it is the only possibility when it comes to this.
