Hey people! SickDeathFiend, me and the rest of the team are very excited to bring you our first game: Road of the Dead!

Escape the quarantined city by driving through a highway filled with ravenous undead, carnage and chaos while the military tries to stop you!

With 4 game modes, 24 medals and up to 1000 newgrounds point (OMFG!!!!), we hope you greatly enjoy Road of the Dead!

Keep in mind the Q key to toggle the quality for people with slower computer, it is a pretty graphic intensive game :D
The newgrounds Dimming Lights and Popup options can also help get better performance.

driving and zombies, two of my faves!

if only you were sonic running instead of a car driving... that's be EPIC.

#3: (when you hit a Z) BOOM! HEADSHOT!

#2 (when you shoot a Z off your hood) SAY CHEESE, MOTHERF#CKER!!!

#1 (when a H appears) i'm not stopping! YOU HEAR ME YOU BASTARDS?! I'M NOT STOPPING!!!

Fun But Heavily Unrealistic Even for a Zombie Game

The game itself is extremely fun to play. No argument there considering the fact that I just looked at my clock and never even realized that 3 hours had passed since I started playing it. The problems I have with the game, however, are that the checkpoints are way to far apart from each other.

In addition: (and I realize that the plot is involved here) why is it that every single checkpoint (AKA: Save Point) Comes right before an entire platoon of army men hell bent on shooting at you no matter where you are on the road? Its one of those frustrating moments where you KNOW there's a checkpoint coming up SOMEWHERE, but you have absolutely no idea when you're going to hit it and it seems like it's taking forever before you finally see the holy "Game Saved" text pop up on the screen where you can rest easy and just let yourself die to use up any RP you earned because you know you'll start back right there with better gear.

The other thing that bothers me is that this is by far the largest city I have ever seen in my entire life. Not to mention the longest STRAIGHT ROAD I've ever seen. I feel like I'm traveling across an entire country. Considering the fact that I'm going, what I presume to be either 240 MPH or KPH, regardless of which one it is, the time played in conjunction with the speed indicated does not match up with how far you actually go. I STILL have not reached the 10KM point on The Great Escape and although I would like to actually SEE the end (if there is one) I think I've played enough for now and need to take a break.

Next, why on earth is the entire army so persistent in trying to bring down just ONE GUY? There are zombies all over the place, yet their main objective is to take out a guy in a black car whom of which they assume is trying to leave the city. I guess their assumption would be correct since he's driving on such a long road non-stop without any need for gasoline.

And last, the body armor was a complete waste of RP in my opinion considering the fact that you still die just as fast if you take enough bullets. I guess the army is aiming at the bare skin on him since he's wearing a sleeveless shirt. Reinforcing the windshield and the bumper proved to be more efficient since as long as I have a windshield, I can't get shot and as long as I have a bumper, my car doesn't get damaged in any way (or catch on fire).

However, since the game is indeed fun, I give this a rating of 10/10 for the mindless driving and, of course, what's not to love about another zombie killing game?
