Here's what some of the press said about Metal Dead:

Alternative Magazine Online
"Walk Thru Walls Studios have launched with an inspired debut effort... Stuffing a zombie head down your pants has never been so much fun!" - 8.5/10

Adventure Gamers
"This first outing by two-man developer Walk Thru Walls floored me pretty much across the board with its humorous, gory, zombie-filled romp." - 4/5

The Reticule
"Admittedly, the zombie genre is getting a little long in the tooth, but Metal Dead approaches the apocalyptic with a fresh style and comic humour throughout." - 4/5 (Head Shot)

The Indie Shelter
"Recommended for adventure lovers as much for those who want to take their first steps into the genre." - 8/10

Gnome's Lair
"Metal Dead is, you see, the closest we've come to the brilliance of Maniac Mansion since, well Maniac Mansion. It's the Shaun of the Dead of adventure gaming."

Unfortunately not. All the settings for the game can be found in the winsetup.exe file in the Desura > Common > Metal Dead folder.

I really enjoyed this game. It had a great story. The plot was funny and it was very original. When you use a theme like zombie apocalypse, there are a lot of things that are overused, but this game added some new and original twists. The gameplay was a solid point and click, and I only found one instance where I got stuck and had to get help. Things worked in a logical manner and it seemed like all the text for each item was unque to each item. I look forward to more games like this! \m/(>_<)\m/
