What is The Challenge?

The Challenge is a demo version of Dead Meets Lead featuring one difficult, specially designed, survival map where you fend off hordes of attacking zombies. The challenge is to survive as long as possible. Those who manage to survive all of the waves and complete the map are granted a spot on the Dead Meets Lead The Challenge – Hall of Fame.

What are the system requirements?

Graphics card: 256 MB DirectX® 9.0–compliant card with Shader Model 3.0 or higher
Hard drive: 1 GB free space
Processor: 2 Ghz Dual Core
OS: Windows® XP SP2 / Vista / 7 (32-64 bits)
Memory: 2 GB Ram

My computer doesn’t match up to those requirements, won’t I be able to try this game?

We’ve put the system requirements quite tight, and if you can stand some lag you might be able to play it on an older computer if you turn down the graphics. The game is free to download so we suggest you simply try.

Will the rest of Dead Meets Lead be this hard?

Both no and yes. Dead Meets Lead is designed to be a challenging game, and most of the maps are challenging in different ways (there are lots of other enemies and weapons in the full game). That said, you don’t need to feel dismayed if you didn’t complete the challenge map, the full game is balanced to take you through the basics and make you a better player along the way.

I’ve encountered a bug, can I report it somewhere?
