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!

PERFORMANCE NOTE:
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.

Leave comments and tell us what you think of it!
Cheers!

Blood all over my dashboard... Yay!

This game is to my likeing. Zombies, millitary resistance, stupid pedestrians, and even mutated zombies make games like this great. Especially the way you kill the pedestrians those are always funny to me for some reason. And the medals are fun to get and the game is over all full of epic zombie killing action!

One of the best Zombie games I've ever played. GG!

Awesome.

Amazing game. Addictive and challenging, but not impossible to overcome.
Crisp graphics and responsive controls... All great stuff.

Switching to low quality with all the extras off, with newgrounds dimmer on makes for rocket-fast mustang action. Exciting.

For the people I've seen who are butthurt about how "impossibly difficult" it is, I have one word for you :

SPACEBAR

Seriously,
after I realized that the spacebar had a function, I've barely hit any parked vehicles or flaming death bombs of any kind. Also, if you have trouble dealing with blockades or individual soldier, just strafe out of their line of sight (it's very narrow, about one lane) and they won't be able to touch you.
I can make it through most of the barricades on the great escape without being shot once with that in mind.

All I have is one complaint, and one suggestion.

SUGGESTION... I saw someone else mention this in the comments, and although I never thought I'd agree with someone who couldn't spell for beans - It would be great to have some turns in this superhighway. Would make a huge difference to challenge, and you could remove some of the crazy amounts of blockage later on, in favor of a dead man's curve or two.

COMPLAINT... FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! Please... PLEASE... PLEEEAAASE make that man stop saying "The element... OF SURPRISE!... The... element of surprise!!!"
I just can't take it anymore... it's the lamest excuse for a tactical order I have ever heard in my life. Especially considering the supercharged mustang barreling towards them at 240km/hr and the hordes of mutated undead on their asses - what kind of mastermind is this guy?!

... ok. Enough ranting... In any case, fantastic game. Have a few more achievements to unlock to get them all. Off I go.
