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.

I know the game is a bit older but... wow is it PLAGUED with problems.

Now before I start, I have a Geforce GTX 680 Lightning and man does this game lag even on low settings. I'm not sure if it's just because of how Flash had been updating as of late, but I don't think the military has to worry about killing me at all: the lag will do it for them. 70% of all deaths is PURELY from lag in later areas. On Low Settings. On a overclocked graphics card.

So why keep playing? Well I didn't say the game sucked; in fact it's impressive! It has that 'one more go' feel and that is what has kept me playing despite the lag. Even mapped it to a wheel controller for the lulz.

The cons? Well, the helicopters can go the hell for all I care. I get they are a mechanic in the game, but the issue with them is that their hitbox is atrocious. The remaining 30% of deaths is PURELY because the game doesn't feel like giving me any hits when I clearly had them. This is the biggest con of them all. Carpet bombs? Even without the HUD thing, they're a nice twitch mechanic. Soldiers? It keeps things in check and works fine. Mutated Zombies? Annoying but acceptable. Just the Helicopters. They're broken.

Overall, it's a great game. The upgrades could have been more broken apart (instead of 3 tiers, have 5 but keep current maxes), but that is just a matter of opinion. Everything is great.

Except the Helicopters.

This is easily one fo the best games here. The team that made this has put serious heart and soul into this game, and it shows. If I had but ONE complait, it's that the story makes little sense. But I admit that story must sometimes be sacrificed to make a fun game. Wouldn't be any fun if the Apache's attacked you from behind, or if the nuclear bombing was much more thourough.

But why are you reading this when you could be PLAYING!? get to it!
