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 5 / 5 stars

One of the best games I've ever played, and the most immersive arcade style game I can think of. although not being misleading, the only other immersive arcade games I can think of are Firefighters on the SNES and the first 4 FNAF games. Also the Road of the Dead 2.

The game is AMAZING! Many flash games have straightforward approaches to gameplay, and this game completely deviates from that curve. It has its own OST, its own Achievement system that rewards players, and dynamic gameplay (I.E. at Tunnel Drive Helicopters will not engage and the ones that are will fly away) While there are many great things about it, there are a few things that are issues

1. Difficulty spikes and drops
The learning curve seems fair and balanced, but there are certain areas that seem to be just random spikes in difficulty (Brighton Square, many players fail to get past this because of the jump from the last area to this) and then the difficulty just....drops (after Brighton Square, it was MUCH easier even with Mutants everywhere, because the military is absent. There were not enough mutants and even the driving obstacles seemed easier than what led up to it)

2. Quality/Slow computer compatibility
while the game is amazing, you should NOT play this game with a slow or even decent computer. Turning buildings off and setting the quality to low does little to improve the speed at which you play (which is a death sentence as you get very little time to deal with threats)

3. The lack of "Invincibility" when hitting an obstacle
Often times, if you are at high speed and barely clip a car, you WILL end up hitting at least one more (I've hit 4 at a time once). While I understand the need for difficulty it makes areas TOO difficult (again, Brighton Square, the very high military presence, the deluge of choppers, spike strip soldiers, bomb squads, and carpet bombings when added to this makes the area impossible without the necessary upgrades for most people.) Even with a maxed out car you can find some areas very difficult to pass without multiple playthroughs of the area to learn the positions of cars

Again, a great game, but I hope this review was helpful
