As anecdotal evidence that it is possible to survive even in trouble, I
exited then re-entered the game, only to find myself east of the river with
3 rounds of .45ACP ammo and nothing else.  Naturally, I wanted to get back
across the bridge, but there were about a jillion zombies there, so I
hotfooted it east and wandered around an area that was free of them, picked
up a hunting rifle, assault rifle and chainsaw, along with oodles of .45 and
5.56mm ammo, plus a badly needed field kit.  When I came back to the bridge,
it was empty, so I skedaddled my butt across, then went hunting.  I racked
up 40 or so kills near the bridge, and further west down Carrigan avenue,
before getting low on rifle rounds, and having to beat a hasty retreat when
all the zombies in the world came out of the Kai Mart.  I headed west to
Green Lane, then north, around the concentration, then busted east towards
the zone, having to take out three loner zombies along the way.  I am now
safely ensconced in the zone until I play again and get sent somewhere else
again.  The assault rifle on burst mode is your friend when a crowd of
zombies are headed your way.

This is less to toot my own horn than to give those of you having trouble
hope, that with patience (I did a lot of sneaking and avoiding large
concentrations of zombies until I was actually ready to fight) and a weather
eye on your ammo stocks.  In case you've forgotten or never knew, the z key
gives you the ammo in your current weapon and the total of that ammo type.
(Thanks for that tweak Jeremy, it's useful.)

Now if only I get to keep the 150+ reputation I gained by donating excess
ammo.

agreed with chris, there are far too many simple audiogames.  if its too
easy people will complain its boring and if too hard people will complain,
but i bet the majority will like me keep trying until we're used to it.
and shaun, the last version pointless? i'm really unsure of what you're
getting at in your messages, as it just sounds like you're complaining for
the sake of it recently, which i'm going to presume is not the case and that
i misinterpreted you.
although i too had the problem with being stuck in a building, which i
solved by learning how the tracking system worked.
great job Jeremy, keep it up sir!
