The game's not too bad. Like Hyptosis said, there is a bit of luck involved. It's not hard if you mainly gather food and medi-kits. Like if you run out of food, use the medi-kits. Also, it's best NOT to fight zombies unless you have armor upgrades or weapons upgrades. Otherwise, it's a fairly good game, it's just that there are TONS of super-zombies when you're past 350days
Why does it take more hits to kill a zombie after working out? I love this game, but this part does not make sense to me.
This game is way too simple. Why can't your hero fight more than one zombie at one time? Why can't you recruit people to help at your side? Why is there no leveling up system or stats? This game is missing a lot of things if you want it to show it's true potential. Also some more detail to zombies and your hero would be nice. And different kinds of zombies would be cool too. And maybe a diffulculty option for us noobs, (and a elite diffulculty for the hardcore).
From looking at the comments, it would appear that this game has two outcomes.
1) The game is beyond easy and you reach Day 200+ with nearly a limitless supply of food.
2) The game is unbeatable in the fact that you encounter a zombie, you're dropped by half of your health, you rest to get back to full. Now you have no more food. You continue searching, you are loosing health from starvation, you run into bandits, you're still starving, you search some more only to step on a nail and loose two health. You search yet again. OH LOOK! TWO DAYS WORTH OF FOOD! Too bad you've got one health left. You rest, you're now at three health with no food, you've used your medkits already trying to stay your imminent starvation and......You stub your toe and die.
I've played this for the past 20 minutes and I've gone through maybe 5 different lives. Each time I tried a different approach to getting started and each time I was confronted with Scenario #2. I have to agree with one of the previous commenters. This is an awesome concept, one that I personally really enjoy. But the random encounter thing needs to be fixed.
If I could live past Day 15, I would play the hell out of this game.
This game in a nutshell:
Zombie, Zombie, Zombie, You injure yourself, Food, You injure yourself, Food, Bandits, Bandits, Bandits, Bandits, Zombie, Zombie, OH HEY NO FOOD LEFT, YOU'RE DEAD.
Seriously, this game needs a fix on the random function. I know it's meant to be hard, but it's just stupid.
