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!

Mostly Brilliant

Heh, definitely wasn't expecting any big things from this title, but it was pleasantly surprising. Graphics are very well done, in a fairly realistic comic-book style. Sounds are also very professional, right down to the voice-acting.

Honestly, my only complaint (besides the inevitable one of repetition), was that there was no option to mute the B/G music. Otherwise, great game. Looking forward to more offerings from this group of collaborators!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

great game

this is one of the best flash games ive ever played.
the graphics controls and story were exeption.
my only complaints is that sometimes there was no way to avoid a colission and a pause button would of been nice.

Excellent Game Plays Like a Slasher Flick

One of the first things that I noticed was that this game plays like a movie, at least for someone watching over your shoulder. The fact that the game play and the background mesh so well is one of the most attractive parts of this game.

That being said, there are a few minor critiques that kept me from giving this game a full 10 stars:

- Unless you play with one hand on the windshield wiper button, your life will be rather difficult until your windshield breaks, especially if you're intent on racking up kills; this feels like arbitrary difficulty and adds nothing to player experience
- The right-to-left and left-to-right explosions advance markers don't help; you need to know which direction the explosions are happening or you'll drive right into them, and those things hurt ... a lot
- Unless you spend the entire run avoiding the helicopter, getting it down means you WILL suffer serious windshield (and when broken, life) damage; the signs are very small and on the extreme edges of the highway and the copter has a bad habit of missing them by a hair; if you want to make sure it runs into it, you'll have to suffer a hail of its gunfire to KEEP it in the right spot
- I have tried my hardest going both slow AND fast trying to knock zombies and/or soldiers off the hood of my car by bouncing into the side walls, but was unable to do so; it seems one of the only ways to get them off (aside from shooting them, which damages your windshield terribly) was to run into a few things head on (cars, ambulances or the like) that damage your car

That being said, this game did earn its 9 stars rather well. The feeling of splattering zombies is rather realistic and suffering the blood splatters on the windshield makes a great deal of sense. Crashes make things rather chaotic in a believable and rather fun way, and the chatter on the radio adds to the game experience, gives you a hint of things to come, and occasionally makes you giggle (especially when the driver is talking). All in all, an excellent game.
