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!

PERFORMANCE NOTE:
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!
Cheers!

Black Sportscar With Tinted Windows

This is a solid game and a premise that I've often thought would make a cool game - a single survivor on the run in his high-powered car, smashing his way through zombies and a military that is Too Stupid To Live (seriously, you're diverting half your forces to chase a 200mph battering ram - let it go, guys). The graphics are excellent for their purpose, the radio and shoot 'em off the hood mechanics are especial favorites, and I love the monstrous appearance of your car as it upgrades (man those upgrades get PRICEY) It's Death Race 2000 meets Dawn of the Dead, and it's brutally fun.

However, I do have a few small problems with it. First, the randomly-generated obstacles, while convincing and preventing mere "play 'til you memorize it" tactics, can lead to obnoxious impossible *walls* of wreckage, leading to me riding the brake way too often - which barely helps prevent my car turning into a two-ton ping pong ball because my left fender clipped yet another flipped semi. Second, without weapons to fight back, those helicopters are a NIGHTMARE to fend off, especially if you get unlucky and there's a section with 10 spike strips turning the highway into a slalom impossible for a speeding muscle car to avoid. Third, the vital water barrels have never appeared anywhere but at a checkpoint... after I've reloaded. A desperate smash through a blockade has left me with a burning car and not a single water can in sight - and ramming the barrels seems to damage my car as well, which seems like a really bad idea. Last, but not least, I hate the civilians. The sound of my horn is still ringing in my ears from constantly hitting it to try and fend off the inevitable Wall of Idiots seeming to hurl themselves at the hood of the speeding black car.

I would love to see a sequel with some more options - maybe a Mad Max-like post-zombie-apocalypse hero wandering from town to town scavenging fuel and parts for his high speed death machine?

pretty good, fun for a while

i enjoyed playing this game for a few hours, though it did get a bit tedious when i had to keep re-playing certain parts that were really hard.

most annoying bug was the HUD being shifted to the left, which made enemies which were on the very left side of the road not appear on the HUD, and so i could not properly dodge them until they were already shooting me (because it's very hard to see what's in the distance, everything is so tiny)

minor bug is not being able to turn left and honk at the same time. if i honk and then press left, the car does not turn. if i am turning left and then press honk, there is no honk.

and the only difference i noticed on hard mode was that there were more lines of bombs planted in the road.

i would love it if there were a few more upgrades (not different types, just further upgrading the ones already in the game).

lastly, the driving and speed of things zooming by in this game is a bit weird, and the perspective is a bit off, but after i got used to it it was no longer an issue.

goodjob

i enjoyed modding up the car was a good touch but as one of the other revieers said i would of liked it if i was able to shoot whilst there infront of the car and not just when there on the bonnet because most of the time your going so fast they just explode so i ended up with loads of shots i didnt have to take.all in all though good game =]
