BackgroundAre you good enough to survive a Zombie Armageddon? Don't panic! Use your brain first and if necessary your sledgehammer. Dead Block is a 3rd person zombie themed arcade game with a unique mix of action, humor and strategy.
Set in the US during the idyllic 1950s, Dead Block takes players to a simpler time when a gallon of gas cost a few pennies, the "golden age" of cinema was in full swing, and that new (and apparently insanely evil) craze called rock n' roll swept the nation—and caused an apocalyptic musical plague to turn the deceased into the walking dead!
As one of three survivors of the shuffling zombie onslaught – Boy Scout Mike Bacon, construction worker Jack Foster, and no-nonsense meter maid Foxy Jones, each with their own unique "Smart Bomb" attack – players will fortify their area by boarding up windows and setting a variety of unique unlockable traps, collect items and power-ups, take on zombies one-on-many with a variety of upgradeable weapons, and even rock them to shreds with awesome guitar power!
- A humoristic gameplay mix of killing zombies and tactical defense.
- Kill zombies in unusual and entertaining ways: install unique traps, employ devious tactics and fight the intruders with smart bombs and melee weapons.
- Tactical defense gameplay: defend from zombies by building blockades, gathering resources and switching between all 3 characters.
