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.

Leave comments and tell us what you think of it!

Probably the best zombie flash ever!

This really took my eye, you SickDeathFiend, are sick, (that's obvious, lol :) ) but in this game, I really liked your art - true zombie apockalypse. The military radio was really realistic, and it gave even more apockalyptic atmosphere! The music - just epic!!! This is one of the best flash games I have ever played, and I would recommend anyone to play it. Whoever reads my review now - trust me, you won't regret playing Road of the Dead.

P.S. Those who say that the controls are difficult just have laggy computers or are just ungrateful and insensitive dicks. (pardon me for language)

Loved It

Im not going to express all the good parts about this game as everyone else already has. Instead im going to list and explain the few BAD parts there were:
1. No variety of anything. No variety of male or female infected and uninfected. There is just one look that they all get. No variety whatsoever. The only unique zombie was the one with the flesh torn off it. (Mutated zombie) This goes for cars as well. Oh yes, the colors are certainly different but i doubt there are that many buggies on a real highway.
2. Military doesnt do anything! They just stand there and look pretty and occasionally blow you up. However in the many military camps, there are just so many army guys that you die in seconds unless your a tank.
3. I highly doubt there is a public radio station that is completely devoted to a higher army official telling a lower one to kill some psycho. (your character)
4. On the military camps with the whole bunch of gates, that they say no zombie has passed but your character might knock it down. Once you pass it, there are zombies past THERE?! The army guys just said no zombies past it!
Dont my negative feedback bring ya down. I only left out the positive cuz theres so much of it!

This game is one of the best!

Well I have to agree with anyone else who liked the game. But I want to point out one little detail, I don't agree with the "long load time". I have Comcast (I suggest slow loaders get that).

And you can click past the sponsors if you're that impatient (deadbeat b*stards).

Good game 10/10

Two Words That Describe This Game.

HOLY SHIT! This game couldnt have been made better by god himself. Actually I just need to ask; are you god? This game is perfect. The storyline, upgrades, endless fun, and my favorite the gore. If you have free time you should definatly play this game, but... there was one problem that fireflame09 had brought up. It takes a while to load, but other than that every thing is amazing.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

One of the best horror flashes ever made.

I have never, in my life, played a better flash game than this.
This right here is as good as it could possibly get.
The animation, the voice acting, the gameplay, and the story are magnificant.
Its also a nice touch to hear the conversations of army and police personel coming from the radio.
It feels exceptionally satisfying when you kill a zombie by running it over.
And the whole game feels intense from beggining to end.
I sat here and played this until 1:00 p.m a day or two ago, and I feel I really need to express my addiction to this game. I swear, 3D-ize the graphics, add a few more levels, and you got a hit console game.
