    Plowing through zombie hordes on a scooter is a lot more fun than it probably should be.

    Dead Ahead (Free, Universal) is the best endless game in recent memory that delivers thrilling and challenging gameplay with great long term enjoyment making it a must have.

    Ads notwithstanding, Dead Ahead ranks right up there with the best the endless running genre has to offer, including Halfbrick's Jetpack Joyride.

    Dead Ahead's short bursts of gameplay are well suited to mobile gaming. A few intrusive ads threaten to hold the game back, but don't let that scare you off from the best use of a scooter in gaming.

    With everything presented in a tidy package, Dead Ahead manages to make old ideas seem fresh again, which is not a small feat considering the amount of rotting flesh and gore I had to deal with.

    Dead Ahead is a very nice endless running game, with stylish pixel art graphics and and lots of vehicles, weapons and achievements to unlock.

    Dead Ahead can give you a cute diversion for a few minutes, but otherwise it’s nothing special.

    This game is really good! A true revival of the endless runner genre. Don't take my word for it, try it yourself, it's FREE! The animations and the pixel graphics are top notch, and level progression is good. Adverts are a bit intrusive, but a small iap will fix that.... But this is a great sleeper hit, that everyone should try out! Expand
