You are Sir Grumpy McGrumpington, veteran of the Sheep Wars, and you just want to peacefully enjoy your retirement on your very own stone cottage near a village in Scottland. You are very proud of your superb lawn - you invested a lot of time into it and nobody else in Northern Scottland owns a better one. Maybe not even on the whole British Isles.

But sadly, your plans on peaceful retirement are futile. Something bad happened - Media reports an infection or something else - and everyone seems to turn into a flesh eating half dead half undead beast. You could care less, but just some moments ago those filthy monsters trespassed your lot and are now stomping and scuffling on your precious lawn!

So be it! Grab your old and trustworthy Winchester shotgun and show these undead rowdies what you think of their behaviour!

The controls for this game are pretty straightforward:

Use the WASD keys to move McGrumpington around.

The mouse cursor indicates the direction in which you are aiming.

Pressing the primary mouse-button will release one charge of bullets in the desired direction.

Hitting R will force your character to reload immediately. Otherwise, McGrumpington will reload on it's own if he tries to shoot with an empty weapon. When reloading, the mouse cursor will change into a reload animation; as soon as this animation finished you can continue causing mayhem to the zombie population.

Every X XP/Points you will gain a level and receive a new perk, randomly selected from the pool of perks currently available to you. Perks are bonuses that will ease your gameplay and will become vital for survival. At the start of the game you will gain new perks very fast, but the longer the game lasts the more zombies you need to kill to receive another perk. Be sure to read those perk descriptions as some Perks are giving you bonuses not directly visible in-game (On the other hand, not all of our perk descriptions are quite informative).

Some zombies are dropping power-ups (ammo-boxes or medkits). To pick these up just walk over them.

You can press ESC any time during the game to Pause the game. You can also access the "Perk Board" from here.
The "Perk Board" provides you an overview of all Perks you currently gained and gives you the ability to guess what might come next. You can also review perk descriptions here by just hovering your mouse over an unlocked perk. Press ESC to leave this screen and return to the ESC-Menu.
