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!



Rated 3 / 5 stars

It could be better!

Keep working on these games. I had a great time playing it, but firstly I was hardly able to upgrade my vehicle even through the first two parts of the game, and steering was just... well, pathetic. You can hardly navigate through the hordes and the soldiers' ammunition is basically unavoidable, but kudos to the reality of it. Work on the movement ability of the vehicle, make upgrades a LITTLE bit less stingy and you may have absolute gold, my friend.

My guess is you're not using the handbrake (space)

Great game!

Nice story and character, i also loved the graphics and music. The voice acting was perfect. It just needs more and cheaper upgrades and the controls were kinda crappy.

Pretty cool but..

The hitboxes for the vehicle are too "wide" you can't squeeze your car in between gaps you normally would be able to. It's almost as if you've never driven a car before. Fix it?

Best Zombie/Driving/Dodging/Time trial game EVAR.

What's not to love about this game? It's so original and innovative!

-Great soundtrack
-Highly detailed graphics
-Cool hazards
-Useful upgrades
-Cool game modes
-Nice story
-Immersive display (AKA your dashboard and windshield)
-No lag! (At least on my piece-of crap comp. It only has like 2 gigs RAM, and it's bogged down with tons of services and processes. Ugh.)

-Kinda crappy controls, I would have made it so that it's arrow keys to steer, Z X C V and B for everything else but pausing.
-Too hard at some points.
-There needs to be some way to repair your car in-game. I know that isn't exactly realistic, but it would make the game way better. And it's already a 10 out of 10.
-Less civilians. Srsly.
-Give us some kind of upgrade for our weapon besides ammo. For instance, upbrage that fist to a pocket knife so that we can attack zombies without ammo (but it would still take a while to kill them.), or give us a sub-machine gun. Furthermore, we should also be able to stick our hand out the car window and fire at hazards. in addition to firing at things on our hood. Also, can't I fire around my windshield?? Like, stick my left arm outside, bend it right when it's past the windshield and THEN fire instead of having to break it? The tradeoff could be, say, a chance of missing. Or, better yet, give us the ability to get a passenger that acts like a gunner. I mean, I realize the point of the game is to not have to shoot in the first place, but still....
-Possibly have more checkpoints? Okay, I understand that the game should be challenging, but that could be solved by having to types of checkpoints: Major checkpoints, where you caan, say, get more ammo (but not repair your car, or vice-versa) and save your game, and then minor checkpoints (of which there are more) where you simply respawn if you die, but can't do anything else.
-Changes in scenery would be a bit nice. I mean other than the gradual destruction of the buildings in the background, of course.

But yeah, great game!
