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!

this is sick

this game is a great idea, id like to feel that im going faster though, it says im going 100 but it still feels slow,make it like burnout man

Evil-Dog responds:

yeah but gameplay would become hard if you go faster :D
Considering view distance, performance, speed, gameplay, we did the best we could.

First impressed, later upset...

I found it was a great flash game actually, no matter the gameplay, music, sound effect, voice. (10/10)
However, I was pissed off for the SUPERhelicopter in Chinatown (hard mode) becoz it's nearly impossible to beat it without getting hit, i was always in very danger after defeating the heli. then thanks to the soldiers for they will kill me right the way. I wonder how can a person with average luck can beat the hard mode (-2) :(

Overall: Very, very good

I would normally write a longer review than the following, but I have to go in about 10 minutes. So, here we go!

Atmosphere: Amazing. There's a feel that the characters are actually in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.
Music: Very good. The music does its work and intensifies the gaming experience.
Voice acting: Hit and miss, mostly hit. There were a few lines where the actor is trying to sound as if he's really mad, but falls short (for example, the "goddamnit!" line of the army officer as his plan of falling back to chinatown gets shot down). Mostly its very much above average voice work, but what really caught my attention was the occasional maniacal laughter heard from the panicking citizens. That was great!
Gameplay: Very good, but not perfect. Throughout the game I always felt the car is a bit too wide, and that thought was proven trough when my on-fire-Mustang seemingly scratch the tire of a semi and blew up. To be honest, looking at the death screen at that point I absolutely refuse to believe the car even touched the truck. There were also many moments where I feel from my own driving experience that either a) I really should have been able to get past these 2 cars without bumping into both or b) I really, really should not have hit those spikes.
I know, I know, American cars ARE very wide, but this wide they are not. Maybe this is partially due to me thinking the view was from the left front seat, but I'm not sure anymore.
The second gameplay point that bugged me is the helicopters. I feel there needs to be some other way to get rid of them than trying to make them back into to those tiny road signs at the sides of the highway. I would think there'd be some overhead signs on a highway too, not just ones on the sides.
Thirdly, I wish that hitting a stopped car would result in different results depending on where you hit it. As I mentioned before, scratching the front wheel of a truck has way too much impact on the driving.
Despite all that the gameplay was very enjoyable, and I definitely loved playing through this game.

On a sort of miscellaneous note, I thought that the main character's comments on the upgrades were a bit silly just after reading them from the upgrade menu myself.

Shit! I'm late!

decent game

holding down the forward button really got annoying after a while, but other than that there were no huge problems with the game
