This is actually pretty dang good.
Some tips for others: (because that's the only reason why anyone besides the author reads reviews)
1. Like Xenogeist said, you won't get all 20 trucks through. Don't worry about it.
2. Burst fire weapons! I used the assault rifle as soon as I could, and it works like a long range shot gun. The best out of all I tried.
3. Get the car upgrades first, then the middle two (for the balloons) and then combat for the ammo.
4. I found that large tires in front and back prevented stuff from jamming between my wheels.
5. Also like Xenogeist said, use the 3 spike tires on the blockades, about a second before you hit them.

To the Author:
Excellent work! It required strategy, skill, and luck which is more than a lot of games. I also liked how you could see your fallen drivers and zombies! Very nice touch.

Was alot of fun and the choice of weapons made it down right comical at times (remote control? shark gun? haha love it).

Nothing really stood out that I thought needed fixing and I'm glad you tossed in an overtime mode, so we can fool around at the end with weapons we never used or got to use.

Good job

I did hate the reminders to play it on kongregate though, but it is forgiven as I understand why.

Okay, I've done all 20 trucks, and here are my thoughts.

1. You're not going to get all 20 trucks in one piece. In fact, you'll probably get up to 7 alive (with the right combination of upgrades).
2. I didn't get all the weapons, nor did I get all the upgrades. However, from the weapons I did retrieve, I liked the Saw blade launcher the best. Combat shotgun is a must, and the squid launcher gave me a few chuckles.
3. The normal sized tires did a good job for me, so I'd recommend to stick with those.
4. If you want a challenge, do manual. However, if you want to do the run as fast as possible without complications, use automatic. When you're on automatic, you only need three fingers: right index finger to shoot, left index finger to reload (R key), and your left thumb to use spike tires.
5. You'll need three spike tires and I'll tell you why: when you get to the metal box blockades (there are three of them) it's easiest to mow them down with the spike tires rather than blowing them to pieces and exhausting your ammunition.

Those five tips pretty much will come in handy. You don't have to follow them, mind you; I'm just throwing them out there after playing this game.

Tons of fun... Shark wep was my fav. Finished my first game with 8 trucks completed... best score after that was 3.5 million. Upgrade truck options first, general weps second... and you're good to go. Boomerang was the best weapon for most of the game... so it seemed to me anyway. Wish there was more to do... but yeah... had "tons of fun".
