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!

Great flash game, 20mb+ size justified (just)

I was thinkin' this better be good while I was waiting 5 hours for the 24mb to download. I was not disappointed. Deservedly ranked on newgrounds, you have an atmospheric, addictive, well animated zombie escape classic here.

Its annoying that you "crash" and get shoved to the other side of the road even when you seemingly just miss a wreckage as you drive past, and I think the helicopters are a little too hard to beat - you need a little luck to beat the harder levels but it is doable.
Also sometimes the road is completely blocked by zombies and cars and shit and its competely impossible to get past without taking massive damage. On the other hand it makes the game more enjoyable that it is hard, though I think it could be easier in parts. Please do make a sequel - maybe you could add parts where you can run around and kill zombies as well as drive and perhaps have a birds eye driving view mode like GTA, which would be awesome. As good as it is I think you can add even more to it.

Great game, just two issues.

No matter what the upgrade level, the windshield is tissue paper, I have never had it last even 10% of a level.
Helicopters, god-damned helicopters, please make them move faster, it always boils down to two options, sit there for ten seconds of elephant-killing bullets to get them to hit a sign, or dodge, then move into the sign only to watch them lazily drift over and miss the sign, shooting you all the while.

Other than those two frustrations, it's an amazing game. love the graphics and gameplay both.

Really great game

it has nice graphics, the gameplay is addictive and tha ability to upgrade your car is a nice touch.
the only reason im giving it an 8 is because of the music, sorry but the epic choir doesnt work so well for me in a zombie game
