Clock*Rocket's hilarious action game, "DREADMILL," puts you in control of a tragic zombie athlete trapped in an underground lumber-mill, running on a conveyor-belt amid a storm of spinning sawblades!"DREADMILL" - a darkly…..
Rated 3/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
Nothing to dread here!
First off, I have to say I almost died playing this game.
No, really - when the menu music kicked in I seriously injured myself laughing... :o
Dreadmill is very much in the vain of the old Game N Watch type of games, which offered simple, but challenging (and usually hectic) gameplay.
You play a zombie, and as a bonus, you can chose the outfit he's wearing, which doesn't change the game any, but is pretty funny. Right now there's a suit and a Hawaiian shirt (presumably for casual Fridays) and the developer has hinted at more to be added.
Said zombie is on a tread, er, dreadmill, which comes complete with spinning sawblades just waiting to hack him into pieces. Maybe it's just me, but it seems that the blades are installed backwards, but they are just as deadly as if they had been installed correctly.
You can help him delay his fate of being chopped up by jumping or ducking at the appropriate times by tapping at the top or the bottom of the screen. For a while I found myself turning the screen sideways so I could use both thumbs to play...
The zombie is very well animated as he runs and dodges (and sometimes doesn't dodge!) the blades... One oddity is that it seems to be standing still as he ducks under blades, maybe he's got some of those shoes with wheels hiding in the heels. (Fellow zombies, don't try wheeled shoes at home, they can be dangerous!)
This is definitely a game for twitch gamers that want to see if they can push their zombie buddy past one more blade than last time. If only this game had online scoring...
This game is addictive - fun and funny, and I hope to someday see all the titles for high scores.
Leave the sound on if you can, but if you can't you'll probably provide your own mental soundtrack of "No! I said 'jump', not 'duck'!" every time you get your poor zombie killed. Re-killed. Whatever. Tons of fun!

The controls are absolutely terrible and it makes it a waste of money.
