Facebook: The Last Stand: Dead Zone||The Best Shooting and Strategy Zombie Game On FB
The Last Stand: Dead Zone
The Last Stand: Dead Zone is a new zombie-themed strategy game available on Facebook.. The game takes place in a small town, where there is an international company which serves as a supplier of pharmaceutical goods and medical equipments. However, the legitimate status is only a front for its secret research of developing a unique virus, which is leaked due to accidence and most people in the town have been contaminated and turned into mindless walking dead. You act as one survivor who is stranded in the town. With water and food, barriers, shelters, you need to try your best to survive from the endless attack of the zombies and fight for your destiny.
There is a tutorial screen popping up to teach basics when I launched the game. It seems that the game is a re-skinned version of theses cuteness and loveliness featured “ville” series. Amidst the town shrouded by zombie chaos, somehow, you still manage to find a junk yard, which serves as a base. And you would have to build storage, production, security and comfort related buildings for your base. There are five types of resources in the game: water and food is vital for survival, insufficient water and food supplies cause your characters’ moral decline, which results in deceasing of their primary stats. The construction part plays like usual, each building takes up several grids and can be placed anywhere instead of being constructed on the predefined building plots. Construction takes time but can be accelerated by using “Fuel”, the premium item. One nice touch is that, the game isn’t applied with the usual restriction on building slots; so, as long as you have sufficient resources meeting the requirement, you can construct all of them simultaneously.
You have your first assistant as a free gift not long after you’ve cleared the tutorial. Survivors can be classified into 6 different classes featuring distinctive skills, advantages and disadvantages. So, as you proceed through the game, you will need to recruit more survivors in order to create an ability-balanced team, so that you can gain the upper hand on your enemies.
The first battle gives players the preliminary insights into the combat system and is easy to win. Battle is conducted in real-time and provides an isometric oblique top-down viewpoint. The dotted-line circle radiating from the selected character indicates the attack range, which varies based on the weapons and character abilities. You aim the zombie by placing the mouse cursor hovering over it when it walks into your attack range. When the pointer turns into a pistol icon, you can simply bring the slow and clumsy walking dead by spamming the mouse button.
After the battle, you will be on your own. No quest guides will be available to lead you step by step in progress. But there are a lot of things to do. You can assign other survivors to clear junks and recycle what they can; build/upgrade various structures for more resources, comfort, security and morale, which make up the overall status of your base, and are reflected in the bar indicators showing your progress towards attracting an extra survivor into your base. As mentioned before, multiple buildings can be constructed at the same time; and further more, construction doesn’t require laborers. So you and your assistant mainly focus on clearing up your base; besides, you are given the option to freely pause or resume a certain clearing task.
In the region map interface, you can either assign your characters to explore unmanned area occupied by zombies or provoke aggressive PvP battles by clicking other players’ avatar.
The Last Stand: Dead Zone, as seen thus far, has the potential to become a big hit. Developers successfully married the zombie-shooter to the popular strategy genre, which provides a new layer depth to dig.

After creating your character, the game will walk you through a short tutorial to set up your base in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.
Quote:The Last Stand basics: defend, survive and collect
Playing The Last Stand: Dead Zone is about finding a balance between three survival goals: defending your base, keeping the survivors alive, and going out to collect resources.
Defensive structures for your base come in several shapes and sizes, but have more of a statistical purpose than that they actually significantly slow down the infected. You don't have to worry too much about where you place your defenses, they will always boost your team's morale.
As you need a lot of food and water to keep your team's morale up, it is important to make sure you have enough of it. In the example below, there is a production of 1 food/water per hour, but also a consumption of 16 food/water per day. To keep that up, you would need to play the game at least 4 times per day, every 4 hours, and that's just at the early point in the game. Providing more production outlets means you can keep playing the game without being forced to spent too much time on it.
Similarly important however is to have enough storage space so that the resources you collect won't be wasted. Make sure you build and upgrade the storage space roughly on equal levels, or you'll waste a lot of resources that can't be stored
Basic battle tactics
Battle tactics bounce between defending your base and defending yourself when you're out looting, and are somewhat different. The base rule is this: always stay together.
When you're defending your base, just make sure that your team is close to each other, and they will sort themselves out. Just be careful they don't scatter, or they may become overwhelmed.
Now, when you're elsewhere, your goal is not to stay alive for a certain time, but as you need to search the premises, you are more vulnerable. The best tactic is to move all your team members in pairs, and when one member is searching something (like a desk or a shelve), keep the other one right next to him. Also, if you have team members that have melee weapons, have them do the searching, so the team members with guns can more easy keep the infected at a distance.
Survivors and team members
Luckily, you're not alone in your fight for survival. Survivors are out there, but they will only come when you can provide them with a save base. By clicking on the blue bar at the top, you can see which requirements you have to fulfill for the next survivor to join your team.
When a new survivor joins your team, you get to choose which role they take on. The key to a good team, is to have members that add to the team's strength, to diversify. Make sure you always have a healthy balance of members skilled at melee combat and ranged combat.
While you can pick the members that most suit your style at your own accord, I would give you the tip to wait with the medic until you have at least 3 or 4 other team members. Because the medic is weak in fighting, you want to make sure there is a strong defense of other team members available for him.
When you level up, you get experience points you can spend different skills of your own character. As with choosing a role for new team members, make sure you find a good balance, not only in your own character, but also with the rest of your team.
Problem: The game performs poorly, graphics and responses are sluggish and laggy.
Solution: Dead Zone uses Adobe Flash Player and its Stage3D technology to render high quality 3D graphics. As a result this can sometimes require a lot more resources and power than the average Flash game. There are several things you can try to resolve this issue:
1) Make sure Hardware Acceleration is enabled. To do this: Right click on the game -> Click ‘Settings…’ -> Select the ‘Display’ tab -> Make sure ‘Hardware Acceleration enabled’ is checked. You may need to restart the game after changing this setting.
2) Update your video drivers. Everyone has different video chipsets, however the most common drivers can be found here:
You can check your video chipset type by viewing the system information in your OS. Please note that we do not supply support for installing drivers and take no responsibility for the outcomes of doing so.
However, other friendly forum dwellers will usually be more than happy to offer suggestions if you’re having trouble, or if we’re around on the forum we may be able to give you a push in the right direction.
Note: The supported chipsets change often with each rapid-release update of Flash Player. If your chipset is not supported right now, it may very well be in the near future, so keep your eyes and ears peeled! If you cannot run the game with Hardware Acceleration, Dead Zone will still continue to function, however the 3D graphics will be rendered using your CPU (your computer’s main processor). This is much less optimal than using a dedicated graphics chip, however it will still allow the game to run, albeit with a large performance hit.
Problem: The game fails to load assets, or completes the ‘Loading Assets’ phase and hangs immediately.
2) Clear your browser’s cache (see here for how-to guides for each browser: [url]http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser’s-Cache[/url])
3) Disable any download management software you may have running. Some download management software has been known to interfere with the downloading of game assets. 4) As a last resort, you may try disabling any anti-virus software. This is not recommended, although it can be used as a test to see if your system has software running that may be disabling the game, and allow to take action.
Problem: The game fails to load missions or hangs while entering areas.
Solution: Please see the possible solutions above, as these issues are often related.
Problem: The game fails to connect to Facebook, Armor Games or Kongregate.
Solution: If you are attempting to run Dead Zone from a public or internal network (such as a school, campus or office network), please be advised that some system administrators will block access to certain ports. This means that some browser-based multiplayer games will not be able to connect to their respective servers. There is generally not much that you can do about this, unless you can convince your friendly system administrator to open up ports to allow access. Your personal Firewall (either software or your computer or your modem/router) may also be blocking access to certain ports or applications.
Check your settings and open access to ports above 1024 and test the game to see if it solves your problem. If running the game on Facebook, sometimes the permissions granted to the app can become corrupted or invalid. This is a rare case, but removing the Dead Zone app from your Facebook account, then re-adding it (allowing you to accept the permissions again) has been known to resolve the issue.
Problem: The game sometimes crashes to a white screen with an exclamation mark (!).
Solution: This can happen when the entire Flash Player encounters an exception (an unhandled error in the internal code - an exceptional circumstance). This could be caused by a number of problem, most of which are generally out of our control. It could be caused by memory related issues (the player is attempting to use more memory than the system has available), another Flash Player instance crashing (in another browser or on another tab), or even an internal crash in your video card drivers or hardware. Dead Zone can use a lot of resources, and we’re continually optimising the game to perform better and use less memory. However, it is a large game with a lot of assets which take up a significant amount more memory than your standard Flash game. Try closing any other applications that may be using large amounts of memory, specifically other games and video applications (Flash/Unity/browser based or otherwise).
Problem: The game/browser/OS/computer crashed and I lost a super-awesome-kickass rare item! Can I get it back!?
Solution: That is most unfortunate! Unfortunately, we do not keep logs of item-drops-to-players, as this data would become extremely large and extremely expensive to store. We cannot give you back your amazing rare item. In the case of a large-scale or rare severe server failure or data loss, we may apply appropriate measures to compensate players if we deem this to be an appropriate course of action.
Problem: I know of a player who is cheating, or exploiting a bug in the game. What should I do?
Solution: Report them to us here on the forum, or email us directly at support[at]deadzonegame[dot]com. Please make sure you include their username and a detailed description of the issue. Screenshots and details of the behaviour will help us to fix any security holes or bugs in the game as quickly as possible. Cheating, as well as exploiting bugs in the game for an advantage are a breach of the Dead Zone Terms of Service. Con Artist Games reserves the right to ban users indefinitely or suspend an account for a specific amount of time.
Problem: A player is being rude, racist or just down-right nasty in the chat.
Solution: That definitely sucks. Con Artist Games is fairly liberal regarding the content of chat, however racism and threats will not be tolerated, and we reserve the right to silence, kick or ban a user that we deem to be disturbing the friendly nature of community.
We often monitor the chat (either actively or passively) and will kick or silence users if we deem the content of their messages to be unacceptable or a breach of the Terms of Service. You can silence individual users from your chat channel manually using the /silence [username] command (excluding the brackets, of course!). You may also report users here on the forum (please supply a screenshot of the chat window with the offending remarks) so we can take appropriate action.
Problem: A player is griefing me and destroying all my stuff! Help!
Solution: We try to take steps to discourage griefing within Dead Zone, and are constantly updating the game and PvP elements to make them fair and fun for all players.
Unfortunately, as with every multiplayer game, there will be trouble makers. Posting your problem on the forum will allow other friendly users to help you out with issues and fix your compound defences.
