It's a great game, it really is but if you could put an option for the bodies to decay after awhile because lag really gets me. once the bodies start piling up, it takes about a second for my key strokes to even be processed, I can't dodge, I can't shoot and basically I'm dead. It would be extremely helpful if you just put in a few more graphics controls.

Very well done, overall. It's a solid concept in a time-tested formula. I noticed very few new directions being taken, but it works in this game's favor. I enjoyed beating people up, until after a while I got tired of staying on the same level. I would recommend a more in-your-face tutorial on the controls, and maybe more of a reminder throughout on how things work. I would also like to see the ability to have an alternate weapon in arena mode. On that note, the randomness of the armor and weapon selection in arena mode is frustrating. I would rather have a set of armor unlocked consistently throughout my play experience than hope that it's available the next time my character is killed. The only other gripe I have involves the pause menu. There is no hotkey for this, nor is there an autopause feature. So when Spotify comes on with its banner ads, switching from my browser to Spotify, I am forced to quickly switch programs in the interest of not killing my character. I really hate doing that. I appreciate it when I see games that have this feature, so that if Spotify decides to be psycho, or I accidentally click off the screen, the game pauses.
Please continue improving this game. It's my favorite series on Newgrounds.

Good game,I can get the whole feel of the Madness:Combat series and this is a HUGE leap from Madness Interactive the hell do you expect anybody to beat even one wave of zombie mode? OMG!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Amazing game.Cheered me up when I couldn't find anymore games to play.

But can someone tell me how to equip a secondary weapon?(I feel like an idiot for not knowing how)
