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.

The only problem (in my opinion) was the lack of a pause, but that's easily overlooked after a couple of hours of zombie slaughter accomplished via the reckless driving of a heavily armored car. Well done!

The finest flash game I've played all year.

What you have created, all of you, is a work of flash based art. Two simple concepts mashed together to make something of such quality that I'd expect to see something like it on the XBox Live Arcade or Playstation Network.

The use of mode-7-ish graphics and a first person viewpoint in the driver's seat of the car is a great change of pace from the usual top-down drivers I always see on NG. The setting is great and it wasn't until about halfway through that I noticed that the scenery around the roads and in the distance was changing in real time the further I went. Great attention to detail there. The use of a radio to cover both story and future enemies and placements was a great touch.

Voice acting was about what I come to expect from flash based games, but a bit better than the usual norm. There's a bit more emotion in the voices and thus they seem more believable, which is always a good thing. Sound design as well was good all around. Splattering of zombies, gunfire, explosions, and the sounds of metal crunching during crashes all lends to the game. And the music is top notch! SoS did a great job on the scores for the game and should be commended for a job well done.

Controls sounded kind of hard at first, but once I got used to them I was skidding between cars and running down soldiers and zombies like it was second nature.

The game is hard, but not too hard. Its one of those games that you can easily pick up, get stuck, but overcome those humps after a few tries. In other words, its hard but in a rewarding way. It took me a while to figure out how to take down helicopters but I was very suprised when I did find out, great idea of how to take them out by the way. (I don't wanna spoil how to do it, really. Sorry.)

My only really minor gripe comes from the ending.


How is he standing that close to the nuclear blast and not succumbing to any sort of fallout or burning? I know its just a game but really, it made me think of Indiana Jones 4 with the refridgerator!

**Spoilers over**

The game is an amazing piece of flash based gaming and my favorite flash game of 2010. I can't wait to find/see more from you guys. 10/10!!
