AGS Panel Review
"This cute and enjoyable MAGS entry with a living-dead female protagonist, is given one last chance to correct some wrongs in her life. You'll chuckle at the jokes as she serves coffee and sandwiches while making her prize winning cake; I'm surprised she doesn't spill the coffee with her zombie walk. Excellent music and nice graphics. This short game is well worth the time."

This must have been a solid contender for the MAGS competition, and well I just checked and saw it had been nominated for some AGS awards. Surely proof enough to check out this game.
The artwork is great and there are some lovely animations for a lot of the actions. There were one or two items I didn't spot right away, but apart from that the puzzles are about the right difficulty and I never really got stuck.
My one criticism is that the intro intro is a bit on the long side, but once you get into the main game there's quite a bit of gameplay to balance that out. Length-wise its short (took me roughly half an hour), but that's still quite a bit longer than your average MAGS game.
Overall a really great game, if you're looking for a short but good game Chance Of The Dead is well worth your time.
Especially that beautiful animation when Janet giggles and how she puts her legs when she walks are facinating to watch but there is a lot more. You should discover by your own! I also had a lot of fun on those funny comments of Janet and can recommend this game highly.
Sweet, with some lovely lovely characters. Even if it is very short you won't forget it easily!
