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 just noticed something, In part 1, the pistol is so powerful that it decapitates a mutant in one shot. But in part 2, it takes about a full clip to shoot the mutant in the face and decapitate it. Also I don't see any ammo boxes on the freeway but the soldiers can see it in part 2... I'm confused?

Here's just a few thoughts I had when playing.

1. Nitrous Oxide. Every driving game needs a "GO FASTER" button. F-Zero taught me this.

2. Why am I being penalized for running over obviously suicidal civilians? If you run out in front of a car going 240, you're roadkill. No, I don't have time to honk. I'm going 240. And what the hell are you doing on the highway? Can't you see there are freaking zombies everywhere? YOU DESERVE TO BE EATEN AND/OR RUN OVER!!!

3. I hate helicopters. Where's my rocket launcher?

4. Holy crap! Where did the time go?

Great game! Lots of fun!

Evil-Dog responds:

Yeah, going faster in this game wasn't a help in anyway, the sequel will be more about speed though
You're penalized cause you should retain your morals even in the zombie apocalypse :D haha they do deserve it though!
Your rocket launcher is in the sequel :P
Your time went in my time collection vortex machine WHICH WILL ALLOW ME TO DESTROY THE WORLD MOUAAAHAHAHAHAHA


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Not bad for a first game. Quite addicting, really fun, and the main theme even gives goosebumps while driving over zombies and military police. The only cons I have is the RP being easy to obtain and the upgrades being cheap, and once you get everything you still gain RP despite buying everything now and becoming super rich.

Overall, this is a pretty good and rare game to find in this world.
