DEADWORD is a survival word game.
As the DEAD surround the city, you'll need to use your HEAD to avoid the HERD. It's not HARD to WARD off the enemies, as long as you find the right WORD.


DEADWORD is a pixelated brain puzzler. Link four-letter words as you strategically move through the city, avoiding zombies, gathering supplies, and investigating clues. Discover Perks along the way that will give you the necessary skills to survive! Loot supplies and find items to patch your wounds, find your way, and distract the zombies! Can you escape DEADWORD?

DEADWORD features a Story Mode with a fun and challenging journey across 30 chapters. Each playthrough is different, offering a new experience every time!

DEADWORD is a free app with intermittent advertisements. Purchase the DEADWORD Extras Pack to remove ads, unlock Endless Mode, and unlock all Perks and gain an extra Perk slot.

Endless Mode: How long can you survive? Progress through chapter after chapter of ever increasing difficulty. Ration supplies and make strategic choices to stay alive as long as possible!

Bliss Mode: OMG puppies! Forget about the zombies for a while and just pet puppies. Seriously. No stress, just puppies. Tummy rubs for everyone!

DEADWORD features slick pixelated graphics and a killer soundtrack.

Use your brain... before you lose it!

I do not have a nickname oof ,


It is a good puzzle game, And I can see how long it took to make this game! But whenever you die in story mode you have to restart. And you also have to pay for the other modes. But regardless this is still a great game! I recommend it! And I have recommendations for the game:
1) You should add checkpoints
2) There should be a button to restart a chapter (but you still keep the damage you took in that chapter)
3) You should add a button too change the difficulty (like easy, normal, hard and impossible)

Ads Ruim Immersion

Good concept - mash up of puzzle and survival in a retro artistic arcade style.

Problem is the ads are unavoidable and ruin immersion. Appreciate ads are likely with a free game like this, but make them more intelligently integrated (e.g. you watch ads for bonus progression) rather than forced.

Great fun

Really fun little game that kept me gripped for hours.
