v1.8 minor fixes & further modification to level 3.

v1.7 allow SHIFT to be used instead of CTRL for single select (for Mac users). More explicit hint at start of level 3. Increased scroll margins to reduce mouse-out frequency.

v1.6 fixes the bug if you finish level 1 while the 'exit' popup is still visible (thanks whitemang!). Also turned off the preloader adverts.

An anonymous office skyscraper in the city. A rogue email containing a deadly brain-melting cybervirus. One minute you're buried in spreadsheets and the next you're fighting your way through the undead. Now you and your co-workers must make a break for the roof and a helicopter evac - survive at any cost!

EDIT: front-paged, thanks NG!

I wonder has the co-workers turned into zombie?


I. Need buttons for control mode: press 1 for controlling one charater, 2 for controlling all characters in the screens, and 3 for controlling all charaters in the game.
Holding Ctrl all the time is really tiring, and you may accidentally control all the charaters run to the mouse like morons and feed the zombies.

II. Need to decrease "safe distance". For ex, when characters get near Zombies, they run away from zombies with a great distance, which really hard for many cases when players want to run a group from zombies. If charaters are unarmed, they should shove the zombies, not keeping an invisible wall with the zombies and get cornered.

III. Need to increase some guns range. I agree on shotgun range. But handgun and uzi should have greater range. Sniper rifle has very good range with super rare ammo.

IV. Need to add more weapons to the game.
Chairs, electric wires, ropes, recycler bin, fire axe, knifes, katana, chainsaw, heavy machinegun, rocket launcher, mines should be added.

Incredible game!

It has all the elements of usual zombie flicks translated to a pixel/retro game

Very creative and fancy

And i do like the original controls, makes you tense because is unpredictable, just like lame zombie movie characters

And the art is very pretty too, simple but not simplist

5 stars for sure!

Quite a good game, but, like with a lot of people, I think the controls need to be refined just a little bit.
However, the most annoying this about the game is, for some reason you cant shoot bosses if they are fire..... whilst shooting at all the minions, pretty much wasting ammo, the bosses are just "there" doing nothing.
But apart from that, very enjoyable, thought it was quite addictive, and there was enough variations in the levels that made it interesting
