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!



Rated 5 / 5 stars


I played like 6 hours... It's an amazing game, one of the best I've played on NG...
Even after playing all that time, I'm still missing 2 medals... I think I won't get Hell's Angel, it's extremely difficult; and, I don't know if it's because of my stupidity, but I can't get the Hood Shaker lol...
Anyway, superb game; just add an in-game Pause button.
Congratulations for your game!

Good, Not Great

While I did enjoy playing this game, after a while I realized that everything about the game is good. But I really can't say anything about the game is great. To run down a few elements:

Story: bad-ass good guy tries to flee a zombie apocalypse. OK, I understand that the whole "zombie" genre doesn't lend itself to much originality. The part of the story that kept me interested was hearing how the miliary reacted to the zombie hordes. Additional elements would have made it more interesting.

Controls: pretty fluid once you add a few upgrades. I did have a glitch with the default controls. I couldn't use the handbrake and drift left. This problem corrected itself when I customized the controls.

Graphics. Not bad, not great. Very little variety to the backgrounds, the NPCs, and objects on the road.

Gameplay: It's pretty simple: dodge some objects, hit other objects. But there were only six basic objects: zombie, civilians, vehicles, military, copters, and spikes. The sensation of speed wasn't there. When my game speedo said I was doing 150, it didn't seem much different than going 80. There isn't a noticeable difference in the car's handling at higher speeds. Anyone who has driven a car knows it is more sensitive to steering at higher speeds than lower speeds. The distance travelled didn't seem proportionate to the actual speed and play time. And the game only offers a straight road. What city in the US has a road this straight? Des Moines? With buildings aflame and crumbling in the background, how is it there isn't damage to the roadway?

Sound: the voice effects were well done, as were the sound effects.

At the end of the day, what makes this game playable is the upgrades. Remove those elements and this is a well-made driving game that offers nothing new or special. After seeing the file size, high score and reading a few reviews I was expecting something a lot better. I liked it, but it's not a game I would bookmark and come back to.
