About This Game

Trapped Dead is a tactical real time strategy game in the tradition of classics such as "Commandos" and "Desperados". You and your friends control your characters in a 3rd person isometric view through a mature Zombie survival scenario inspired by the successful horror films of the early '80s. A co-op mode for up to 4 players is included as well.
The story takes place in the early 80s in a small town names Hedge Hill near Kansas City, Missouri. The sowing of a new genetically modified type of corn caused the existence of a new virus which mutated through the natural food chain. A dog bite of an infected animal caused a local outbreak of the virus which rapidly infected the inhabitants of the idyllic provincial town. Mike and Gerald, two college boys, are thrown into the middle of a terrifying horror scenario. Having pulled over to a gas station near Hedge Hill during what was meant to be an enjoyable road trip, they are unaware of the virus which has already reached the gas station and its staff…

5-Star Fail. Clearly, this game was released before being fully developed. It is pretty bad on a lot of levels. The maps and graphics overall are actually decent but that's about it. It isn't fun or rewarding at all, just clunky and buggy. Enjoyment only came from laughing at how bad it is, and gaining extra disk space when uninstalling.

This game is complete ♥♥♥♥. Decided to try and play today and the ♥♥♥♥ing intro is 20 minutes, lagging the entire time. I understand my pc isn't the greatest but holy ♥♥♥♥. Longest gayest intro.

Not only that, I get into the game FINALLY and theres no options for anything. So ♥♥♥♥ this game, ♥♥♥♥ the developers, I'm idling for the cards and uninstalling this piece of ♥♥♥♥.

Dont waste your time.

This game puts more emphasis on Tactics rather than mindless button mashing "just to kill as many as possible" unlike recent zombies games. 3 zombies at the same time can be a problem, hence, kiting and careful ammo distribution is critical to your survival. All of this coupled with a "Command & Conquer" interface where each of your survivors can be given an order. You can even move the camera to see the horrors that lies ahead and plan carefully.

The atmosphere and the setting is highly detailed, especially the map props. Any fans of George A. Romero's zombies and movies will feel right at home. Heck, the first 2 playable characters are direct cameos of his movies. It's like a big party and everyone was invited.

I haven't tried Multiplayer, but thinking about it makes me shiver... Having "mean" players on your side, hoarding all the guns and ammo, talking trash in the chat saying "he's the boss and he doesn't give a f because it's the zombie apocalypse", closing doors leaving you behind with a horde, shooting you to death because you're bleeding and bleeding in this game attracts zombies... stuff like that... :P

Last note... This game is for hardcore zombie movie/game fanatics only. Only these people may appreciate the great value of this game. That includes me, which is why I'm giving it 10/10.

Could have been good actually. The idea is not sensational but not bad either.

Anyways, the game is horrifying. Just because of its controls. These are awful.
They are destroying the entire flow of the game.
I even died sometimes because the characters didn't move properly.

I really like zombies and had a coupon. Good for me that I saved some money at least.

Don't buy this game!

This "Action Stradegy Mature zombie survival" game might seem ok on the store but it's not.

I don't recommend you to ever buy this. The controls are just bad, nothing is user friendly.
Rotating the camera is hard and annoying, it's still buggy and the actual gameplay is boring and frustrating.
You have to lure out zombies and melee them most of time, characters voices are annoying to hear.

Just avoid this 2/10, there is no reason to buy this.
