About this game

The Dead are coming for you, it is time to find a ride and drive for your life. With the relentless zombie hordes hot on your heels and hungry for flesh, can you fend them off whilst keeping your eyes on the road?

Swerve between abandoned cars, plough through undead crowds and when the dead get too close, get trigger-happy. Visit the Garage to upgrade your ride and your firearms to keep ahead of your pursuers.

Smart thinking is the best weapon against the dead. Trick these brain-hungry buffoons by leading them over ramps or straight into the back of cars and watch those red pixels fly!

Survive as long as you can to complete missions, rank up, and top the leaderboards. Rack up gory combos and take on daily challenges to reap even greater rewards.

So it's an action-packed endless zombie runner with quirky sense of humor and pixel-inspired visuals. Also you can pimp your ride and upgrade your weapons. You need it to complete missions to rank up and earn greater rewards. So customize and share your own progress banner and enjoy!

I've been playing Dead Ahead ever since it was on iPod, and I have nothing but pleasant memories riding through the streets while blasting zombies to pieces behind me at high speeds. I unfortunately have to give dead ahead a low rating and a poor review due to the app no longer starting up and being locked at the mobirate logo. While I'm dissatisfied and disappointed with mobirate that I can no longer play my favorite classic zombie runner, I hope that they'll fix this issue.

Very fun arcade action. Simple controls make for an easy pick-up-and-go type of game. Sprite work is fantastic and the environments are beautifully well made. Very reminiscent of Metal Slug's artstyle. Most folks may not notice this at first, but advertisements are 100% optional and give you nice rewards for watching, such as doubling the coins of a run you ended. More games could learn a thing or two about giving players optional ads for goodies. It's fun to play a couple runs while waiting for an appointment or riding the subway. Doesn't require an online connection all the time. Overall, a very fun experience that more mobile developers should strive towards.

The simplicity and ease of "pick up and go" from this game is great!! It progresses at a relatively nice pace and has a good variety of weapons and vehicles to choose from. It also allows you to go back to previous maps and still obtain goals for your level up which is nice because the further you progress in the locations the harder the zombies get. A very good game and I recommend giving it a try!
