Took a while to complete this one - thanks to an incorrect
walkthrough! Doh! Managed it with all 4 characters alive

This is a really good game - remember playing it for
ages on the Amiga when it came free with a copy of The
One magazine. The graphics and sound are rubbish, but if
you are a fan of the Dawn of the Dead, you will love it.
So what of the ending?
All you need to do it

...that's it! The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Used a walkthrough - even if it was incorrect :)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
You see the screen scroll upwards (indicating the
chopper taking off) showing the zombie's being left
behind and you get a very short scrolling message saying
"YOU HAVE WON!"
No ending ditty (then again there is no in-game tune and
very, very few spot FX).
There is so much missing from this ending that there isn't
much to say about it. It's poor; very poor.
- Guerilla: Oh
boy, what a crap ending! I'm glad I never got a hold of
it back in the day - those hours playing it would have
left a bitter taste when finally making it to the end.
Thanks for publishing!

Having seen the end on the Amiga, I knew what to expect.
I wasn't expecting a lot as the Dawn of the Dead film
sort of just ends with the flying away chopper scene,
I'm sure they could have at least added in a static
colourful ending screen (seeing as the title screen has
one). I did enjoy playing this - although the speccy
graphics and slow icon response was annoying. I think it
is an excellent example of how a (sort of) movie tie-in
should be. They could have gone down the Ocean route
with a variety of different run and jump levels, but no
- they did an icon driven adventure - they should be
applauded (not for the ending though).

Being a huge fan of the Zombie genre, be it films, games
or anything, when I saw this reviewed in ZZAP! all those
years ago, I wanted to play it. Unfortunately, I could
never get a copy of it anywhere; my local computer shop
didn't stock many disk games and my parents weren't too
keen ordering things mail order. I eventually played it
through emulation about 10 years ago. Not bad, but a bit
slow. Still, a brave attempt at doing something
different. The ending is a bit disappointing considering
the effort that would have to go into completing it...
FINAL SAY: To sum it up, as an ending it is
very poor, but in a strange way it is satisfying after
battling though the game to show you making it out
