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!

I love it. I just wish there were more upgrades.

The initial haul to level 3 in all the basic upgrades seems to take forever, but after that you gain thousands upon thousands of utterly useless RPs. I wish there were more upgrade levels for those who are really, really dedicated to playing it through and seeing all the game modes and such.

It would also be nice if the highway actually had visible on/off ramps, even if they were totally barricaded off with concrete road barriers, chain-link fences and piles of other stuff, especially if there were zombies pounding on the outsides of them.

As well, killing the choppers is an aggrevating pain in the ass, as mentioned, because your options are to hammer into wreckage and die in order to steer the chopper into signs, or play it safe with the wreckage and get your car hammered into wreckage by the chopper's guns and missiles. This might be partially alleviated if you made signs poles across the whole roadway with tall signs in more places than just the extreme left and right, or at least added coding to ensure there are no cars directly in front of the next sign.

Great game

As others have said, this is a great game, however there are a few inconsistencies.

1. The splatter area is extremely inconsistent

2. Troop fire can be extremely overwhelming and in places getting past it is more down to luck than skill.

Other than that the game is extremely well balanced and enjoyable, some more customisation would be cool, like an external rocket launcher to clear a path, or th ability to fire out the window.

If only you made this 10yrs ago..

you could have sold this for $50 a copy. I wonder if you were influenced by a SNES game called Outlander, and if not you should definitely have a play thru of that game before making a sequel to this game as I think using some of that games ideas could only better this already solid premise.
