'Dead & Furious' (NDS) - 4 New Screens

by Rainier on June 2, 2006 @ 5:14 a.m. PDT

In Dead & Furious you play as Rob Steiner, jailed for life for a murder you may not have committed, but now find yourself faced with an evil presence lurking around every corner! From maximum security prisons to research facilities, from swampland to airport, pickup your shotgun and blast your way through this action packed zombiefest.

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night, your cell door wide open, good luck or bad luck? Where are the guards? Why is it so silent? Is fate on your side? You stand barefoot on the cold damp floor, your nightmare about to begin. A shotgun lay beside you, drenched in a pool of blood. One thing is certain, you’re gonna need that shotgun! You take your first steps then…you pull the trigger! You are faced by an army of zombies, baying for your blood! Lets face it. You don’t want to end up like them do you? There’s only one solution, keep pulling that trigger!… Find the truth to this nightmare. Where are the clues? Are there others like you? A survivor perhaps?

The main objective of Dead & Furious is to recreate the arcade style gameplay and atmosphere made famous by House of the Dead and Time Crisis. The gun controller is replaced by the stylus on the NDS Touch Screen. Shoot the zombies by aiming and tapping the screen. When the gun is out of ammo, simply drag’n drop ammo to your gun to reload. The player will be able to adjust the camera up/down/left/right to change the viewing angle. This will allow the player to look closely at finer details in the scene (i.e broken objects which will reveal bonus items and enemies attacking from the ceiling, etc). Players are guided around the 3D world, however the game features several paths for the player to choose.
