Dead Ahead™

By Chillingo Ltd

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


From the creators of Parking Mania comes a game with a little more bite!

The Dead are coming for you, it’s 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.

Game Features:
• An action-packed endless zombie runner
• Quirky sense of humor and pixel-inspired visuals
• Pimp your ride and upgrade your weapons
• Complete missions to rank up and earn greater rewards
• Customize and share your own progress banner
• UNIVERSAL; plays great on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad

What's New in Version 1.1.1

Not all bugs stay dead. We've given the recent ranking bug the ol' double tap to avoid any further issues and all players affected will be returned to Rank 16. A Faulty batch of grenades have also been found and replaced. Betty Boomer and her grenade launcher both return ready to kick some zombie butt!

Download now if you like funny zombie killing

This game has potential. The eerie atmosphere combined with realistic pixel art makes the game lovable at a glance. The software hasn't crashed or show bugs, which is also great. The multiple hazards both in front of and behind you also make the game a fun challenge without being too hard. However, there is a small classification of weapons, bonuses, and vehicles. I can understand the reason for the costs of these, but there are little to choose from and make the game seem limited. The recent starting bonuses tries to cover this up, but has mixed success. Definitely worth a gander.

Very fun take on endless runner

This game is a good game. The only endless runner type game I find myself going back to play. The ads do get annoying, but any purchase removes them. However, it is annoying that to progress in rank, you need to buy the quad. You do not need to spend actual money on it, but it is annoying because it defeats the purpose of buying the Akita bike from the cash store if I HAVE to use he other motorcycles to progress in rank. Also, there is a bug on the sub machine gun. It does less damage the the nail gun fully upgraded, even though it lists he damage as the same. And it is listed that it has more ammo, but it is actually the same as the nail gun. I'm talking about both fully upgraded though.

Beautiful and challenging! Love it! 😍

Awesome arcade game with beautiful high resolution pixel-art graphics and superb attention to detail! Great variety of bikes, weapons and enemies with fun and carefully detailed animations. Very challenging missions that keep you coming back.

Plus, I absolutely love the super enthusiastic narrator and the subtle effect of sunset as you get far enough in a single run.

On the down side, the ads can get pretty annoying, but any in-app purchase removes the ads. The sidekick girls (IAP) are a cute addition, and the game itself is more than worth a few bucks, so please support the devs! 👍
