If you want a good time waster and the feeling of a gritty, post-apocalyptic story, do not hesitate to buy this game. It's dark and melancholy, even with its colorful * bit graphics.

As stated in the reviews, this game isn't for everyone. It's not the best game by any means, but I thouroughly enjoyed it and played it many times over.

I played way more on mobile than the Steam version, but they're the exact same game. I recommend listening to the soundtrack, for I found it to be dark and enjoyable.

I found the combat/shooting mini-game unbearable, and everything else only underwhelming. Go play either Oregon Trail or FTL instead.

My Journey:

Day 1. Me and my pals hop into an old station wagon and hit the road. Rescources plentiful.

Day 2. Station Wagon has minimal damage, we stop at a settlement. Rescources still good so far.

Day 3. Attacked by bandits, car damaged, repairs necessary. Running low on rescources. Alex bitten, gotta put him down.

Day 4. Zombie Horde damages car further. Car is screwed at this point. Fuel and scraps low.

Day 5. Car breaks down, we repair it. We run out of fuel. Have to trade for it. Losing rescources.

Day 6. Ran out of rescources, stuck in the middle of the road, car broken. We are desperate.

Day 7. In a state of fear and desperation, I realize my group has too many mouthes to feed. I shoot all my friends and try to horde as many resources possible

Day ?. No rescources. No car. No food. No friends. I run out into the horde and let them dine on my flesh.

10/10 best interpertation of a zombie apocalypse ever.

This game is fun and a cool take on the original. I had lots of fun on my first playthrough, which was just under 2 hours. If you were a fan of the original and you like zombies, this is the game for you. A minor thing that kinda bugged me was that one person got bit at the beginning of the journey and never actually turned.

A great variation on the classic game Oregon Trail. Instead of heading west to start new cities and find Fame/Fortune, you are trying to escape the Zombie apocalypse and reach Safe Haven.

The game is about resource management and does a great job of staying true to the original, with fun variations. You travel with 4 friends in a crappy station wagon. Your car can be upgraded and repaired with spare parts when it breaks down. You can scavenge for food while avoiding and shooting zombies. And ofcourse Random things happen while on the Road, some bad and some funny.

Overall a fun game.

This game is so difficult to give a stern review for. It's just a silly 8-bit game with a lot of humor mixed in with despair. You can name the characters after your real life friends and it makes it kind of heart wrenching when you have to put one down or they get sick or held hostage. You really get put into the game and realize how difficult it is to scavange and survive during a zombie outbreak. Replay is great and doesn't really get all that old. Aiming is kind of a pain in the ♥♥♥, if you look up videos for it you'll understand what I mean (it's so hard to explain), but you can overlook that. If you can overlook that, it's a really great game and I definably recommend it for hours of addiction.
