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.

Incredibly Intense!

The story was really well developed and lends the game its intense atmosphere, the radio chat was incredibly deep and meaningful. The way it was told; was immersive and non-intrusive. The gameplay was incredibly intense; I love how the difficultly increases as you go further. The controls were easy to pick up but hard to master. This is probably the best execution of a driving game, in Flash, ever. The graphics were also great and fitting; though the colors could be less "washed out" The only big deal I had with the game is that there were a lack of enemies; I would love to see a big zombie exploding into blood and gore, obscuring your windshield. or a tank vehicle, which you cannot ram through unlike the other vehicles. I also wished that there were more upgrades. Still this is still a great game, I hope to see a sequel some time in the future, keep up the good work!

Best Zombie Flash Game ever made

No lie. Excellent sprite work, voice over, music, controls, gameplay. 10 Across the board. The guy who does the voice of the main character sounds eerily like Steve Blum. I thought the zombie flash game genre had dried up with nothing but scrolling shooters, overhead shooters, and RTS style shooters. Then this comes along and blows me away. Great work!

There's just something cool about driving balls deep in blood down a three-lane highway with Zombies and the Military jumping at every chance to drag you down the drain in that shit hole of a cities remains, dodging debris, civilians, and assholes with guns whilst you drive helicopters into the ground, empty your bullets into the obstacle riding on your bonnet, and you take down military checkpoints with nothing more than a makeshift plow, a toothpick, biker gloves, and the accelerate pedal.

This game is good and you should be happy

Great flash game. Truly great. If I had to pay for this to play it I would, whether it be on something like xbox arcade, in a set of steam indie games, or a mini game to another zombie video game.

I typically hate a lot of zombie games, but I LOVE zombies. Seeing this as a driving game I thought "okay I'll waste a good thirty seconds" I look at the clock and half an hour has passed. You hit BOTH of those genres almost flawlessly.

Truly amazing game and I'll come back to it for when I'm in the mood for a zombie fix. That's coming from a guy with a LOT of video games.

Restoring My Faith In Online Flash Games

have to admit, this game is impressive. A true compliment coming from me considering the fact that I don't get impressed a lot. The game always changed, increasing the difficulty, the elevation of performance with the upgrades. And the adrenaline rush when you're dodging a protected zone with a helicopter on you with the windshields broken, popped tires, a level 1 Kevlar, nearing the end of your life. This game, has stuff other games lack.
