Hungry Are the Dead


Aim with the mouse, click to shoot.

If you have grenades, then hold the space bar to aim and click the mouse to throw.

You can upgrade your weapon and grenade capacity and power.

When ammo power is fully upgraded, a single bullet can penetrate 2 zombies at once.

You can buy defensive barricades in the scroll box at the upgrade menu. These barricades will degrade to nothng if zombies destroy them. Some are stronger then others.

You will be ranked on accuraccy,number of waves survived and kills, and ranked accordingly in the end.


I've always wanted to do a zombie defence game, kinda a dream of mine, but actionscript was never really my thing. Thankfully Bernd Ameel stepped in and we did this project well enough to get what is my very first sponsorship on a game. Very proud to meet the high standards of TurboGames, and I believe we have something here that should keep many people looking for a solid zombie shooting game entertained for a while.

Those of you who wanted more variety in gameplay ( like different weapons ) , mabey you should go play Last Stand or something. Let it be known, the purpose of this game is to capture the feel of defending yourself against impossible odds. That means you have the barest of weapons and defences at your desposal. So no, there is no mowing down hoardes of undead with chain-guns. That would be too easy.

Took about 3-4 months of hard work to complete, so naturally, any comments you post will be read and eventually replied to, just give us time. Also, if we recieve any of those retarded chain-letters in reviews, rest assured I will personally come to your house and murder you. Seriously, those things are gay as hell.

i love this game but I have a question am I the only one who can't shoot his grenades because when I click the button nothning happens. No I mean when I press the spacebar and click the mouse I still can't shoot the grenade.

Make sure you are holding spacebar to make the throw arch appear, and that you have grenades in the counter display

lol hacks

Wether intentional or not, this game has a unique enemy design... it is better to aim at the bigger and higher enemies' heads because they offer better collateral than the smaller and lower ones. except the dogs, they are the hardest part of this game next to the headless zombies.

Yeah! Survived 16 nights! Great game!

I do think there should have been another gun or two and a few more zombie variants. Maybe a skinhead zombie that requires two shots to the head lol. And a handgun and Uzi carbine lol.

It is an awesome game! Gets really tough the longer you survive but i enjoyed it.

5 out of 5 stars!

This game is still fun after all this time you guys did something right.
