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!

Cool but difficult

It is cool, but´s it´s too difficult, so I gave up playing.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

almost perfect

this so great, the action, music, the idea is brilliant.

but i'd like to see more difference from town to town, it can get a bit boring after a while.

you have to play for ages to get rp forall but the first tier upgrades, and though it gets easier with the upgrades purchased already, it's just too repetative after a while.

the soldiers really piss me off, i guess they are meant to but after you've lost the windsheild it very hard to play for long after with so many shots coming at you. there should be a way to gain some health back, for example stopping by a ambulance, jumping out and grabbing supplies.

have you considered perhaps having it go dark for a while every hour or so, driving with lights, an extra thing to upgrade.

like someone siad below, at times even when going very slowly it is hard to avoid obstacles becuase you think you've driven past but then collide.
i don't know if you trid to do something with clipping obstacles and head on collisiions but both seem to b the same which is a bit dumb, clipping an obstacle should cuase some damage and cuase you to swerve a bit but not so much. there should be a reverse (but i wouldn't add one just improve turning) becuase at times i get stuck with no option but to collide. the trouble is the cars turning is crap, it only goes side to side but can't actually turn.

you should maybe try a birds eye veiw but at a slight agnle, sort of looking over the car, and add controls to turn a bit better.

pedestrians are so hard to avoid and the horn doesn't help much, when they here it they should actually jump n' roll to side , i would, rather then try to run to the side only to get clipped by the side.

otherwise great great game, should be on Xbox (with more controls and stuff of course). love the feel of the game and the way the zombies splatter.

oh but one more thing, ramming the side wall doesn't shake zombies or soldiers off??????? you have to either shoot your own screen (?) or collide with something. why can't you drive side to side very fast and fences and some of the "medium" weight obstacles don't work (why not?!) braking very harshly definatly should work but doesn't...

yeh like i said almost perfect.
