There are many ways to escape the hoards of undead during a zombie apocalypse. Some of the most popular film depictions include cars, planes, and boats. Rarely, if ever, is a motor scooter the chosen means of escape, but that's all you've got to work with in Dead Ahead. It's a quirky endless runner with zombies. What more do you want? Can't you ever just be happy?

The goal is to survive as long as possible while dodging obstacles and mowing down zombies. There are two different kinds of undead to contend with – the ones standing in your way like brain-eating pylons, and the ones chasing after you. You can swerve around the ones in the road or run them down, but you'll lose a little speed doing the latter. The ones chasing you can be shot or steered into obstacles (they aren't very smart).

The game has a retro look, but it pulls it off without feeling cheap. You'll accumulate currency in the game that can be used to buy more gear, faster bikes, and bigger guns. Being a free-to-play game, there are also IAPs to remove the ads and add more cash to your stockpile. Note however, that there is only the one type of currency. It's a lot less sketchy than some games.

    Dude, you're not using that word correctly. And no, it's not nitpicking. The word is COMPLETELY wrong.


    • Jay

      That's because you're looking at the noun version. The verb, "to shamble," conjugated in the present tense to "shambles" means "to walk with dragging feet," like a zombie.

      http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/shambles, but click the second entry for "shamble" this time.

      • Just_Some_Nobody

        Fine. I've been corrected. :)
