Metal Dead is the first in a planned series of comedic, heavy metal influenced, apocalyptic point'n'click adventure games packed with everyone's favorite undead creatures, zombies!
This twisted tale centers on two metal-heads in the midst of a zombie invasion. After crashing their car in front of a medical research facility, they become trapped and are forced to use their wits to puzzle their way to freedom. Along the way, they must deal with a cast of characters who range from mildly deranged to completely insane.
Metal Dead is a full-length old school adventure game, featuring:
Over 40 interactive rooms
17 unique, quirky characters
Built-in hint system
Fully orchestrated midi soundtrack
Extensive script packed with comedy goodness
5-7 hours of gameplay
A fun little point and click adventureBlockAgent | Sept. 19, 2014 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
Metal dead is an interesting game. It's funny, well written and well thought out. The art has a very fun look to it and adds to the humor. The story is pretty good and the gameplay is typical point-and-click fashion. This game is pretty short (about 1 1/2 hours to complete it the first time through). The puzzles are challenging and really make you think, but aren't impossibly hard.
Overall I enjoyed it. I never got bored and I laughed quite a few times.
Another Zombie Game? I think not!Sciazs | Dec. 23, 2013 | See all Sciazs's reviews »
Metal dead starts off with the protagonist Malcolm and best friend for life, Ronnie who stumbles upon zombies in a beat up car. Oscar winning narrative here.
But hey its a zombie game, we're not here for that. The game is what it is for what you pay for. Its a mindless fun game with inventory based puzzles. Some are genuinely clever whilst some are absolutely trivial. The artwork is suggestive that the game would be funny - its hilarious at times and to be quite frank, actually well-written for the majority part of the game. My only issue with this game was that I wish it had lasted longer as by the time you truly get to appreciate the game for what it is - its over.
