Daily N. 2. Thanks to all of you!!!
To support us: remember to recommend this game for the "zombie" collection and for the "shooter games" collection!
After so much enthusiasm and hard work... here is our newest title!
We really consider this game as our masterpiece.
A zombie action top-down shooter flashgame with dynamic lights and shadows!
Zombies are coming from every dark corner, crawling toward you and looking for your flesh!
Protect yourself behind makeshift barricades. Aim, shoot, reload.... survive!

1) Yes we know...the game takes long to load...but believe us: if you like zombies, action, shooters, guns,'ve to play it!
2) The game has very intense graphics. Before you play we measure and suggest a specific quality level for your computer. Should you force it to a higher not complain then about lag :D

- Protect your lights and try your best to stay far from darkness.
Zombies hate light and are stronger, faster and tougher in the dark.
- Use SPACEBAR and the game will pause opening your inventory where you may easily select any weapon and/or device with a simple mouse click.

Last note: We preferred not to do the gun auto-reload in order to make the game experience more thrilling when you run out of ammo and you need to do a different urgent action like reload (press "R" keyboard).
Press "C" keyboard in game to pause the game and open the controls page.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Pretty awesome

A top notch game, man. Though, the pattern of some of the boss fights (that being, attacking them while they were attacking) was a tad annoying. And the final boss seemed to glitch a bit. But otherwise, you did well.

Zombie Shooter, anyone?

Graphics, sound, weapon choices, steak...
Clever and great. S'all I have to say

It's a pity I didn't really get the chance to appreciate the character designs of the bosses without my lights going off too fast and seeing them in NVG.

Xplored responds:

Right comment. It's really a pity also for us, after all the graphic work to model and animate them in 3D. We'll make in so a way to show them better next time.

Staying in the base is a death trap, but the zombies will continue to attack it to destroy your campfire. The fire lowers their speed and life.

In the corridors, always search every room, the weapon objective will eventually show up. In the camps, kill them all, don't leave. The boss usually has the weapon you want anyway. Extra ammo and some healing goes a long way in this game.

The flame thrower is an awesome crowd destroyer. Also it pushes them up in case you get in a jam and get surrounded and can't move.

Propane tanks are good, but limited range. Same goes for the grenades. Save your bloody meat until you reach the very last level. Once you cleared the first mega wave, you'll have an opportunity to drop the bloody meat to lure the zombies to it. From there, you can go for shit with the machine gun, flame thrower, or grenade launcher.

Weapon upgrades, weapon damage, reloading, and the controls were very well balanced IMHO.

Oh another tip, the four armed guy is almost invincible against bullets. Save your RPG and Grenade Launcher rounds for him. Grenades and Propane tanks work mediocre on him too.

Another FYI: The flame thrower will continue to burn the zombies. Burn them until they reach what you can gauge as 30% of their life left and let off the trigger. It'll save you ammo/fuel and you're not in a rush in the corridors, so this gun is perfect for these levels. It can burn zombies by doors, where guns can't hit them.

The music has a great pace and kept me focused on the game. The Uzi seemed a bit more powerful than the M16 only because of the fire rate. The SCAR however, fully upgraded is an excellent choice for ripping zombies to pieces.

The score I give it here in the review is a 9. Only because I felt there could have been more to the story. This is a minor, minor complaint though. Overall the game was very enjoyable. No levels, attribute upgrades, just great and raw action packed fun.

As for my vote, this game is definitely a 5.
