Hi there!
This is my very first game submitted to Newgrounds.
Special thanks goes to Adam Atomic for creating Flixel and Kevin MacLeod for providing the music!

Thanks for reading!

The game is now much more left-handed-friendly and allows moving with the arrow keys!
When carrying the minigun you become slower and jump less higher!
Fixed the medal-popup-problem!
MENU-button is now MAINMENU-button and asks if you REALLY want to leave and to lose all your process!
You can now switch weapons by pressing 'Q' and 'E'!
"How to pause" now explained ingame!

Good, but has issues.

It started off well, but when you get to the business end of things you start to really feel how little room there is to dodge zombies, which ended up being frustrating. The lack of large amounts of ammo for some weapons was annoying, especially the uzi. For a gun with such a fast rate of fire, you had to treat it like a rifle, squeezing off one shot at a time in order to conserve your ammo.

I'd rather have zombies in my radio station...

I'm only giving 7 because I've played Radio Zed and this is like a cheap knock off to me. It's a bit too easy, but it's good nonetheless...

I have never played or heard of this game before, but thanks anyway.

too easy, not a lot of upgrades

before you get the m16 the game is decently hard, but after that with good use of ammo it's easy.

also the minigun is stupidly overpowered, i mean you get 3000 rounds of the strongest bullets in the game for 1 wave.

also, more upgrades and maybe an endless mode would make it better.

I enjoyed it, to a certain extent.
The zombies once introduced there was nothing more new.
The weapons were available from start, you just had to make your way there from earning money but you knew what it was you where getting.
There was no upgrades, no such thing as; Barricades? Survivors? Explosives?

There was no new areas to unlock or move to.
I suppose it sticks to its title, but it COULD move on to other houses?

It was enjoyable for so long...

I like zombie games so your rating will no doubt be high due to that.

Make a sequel, i'd love to see more things included of what i've mentioned.

Good, but has issues and is very easy.

Its like a good little time killer. When you have a spare ten minutes, play this game and beat it. I was able to beat the game and get all the trophies on the first try. The last day was the easiest, funny enough. The minigun is basically an end all weapon. The severe lack of space was very frustrating at first, but then I found out that I could just go outside and triple jump to stay out of harm's reach while raining bullets down on the mob of zombies. I never died, so I don't know what that is like :P. I'd say, to improve, make it much bigger and have more space. Add more weapons and improve the ones you already have. Also, make it at least a little hard ;).
