An IMG reader recently pointed us to a browser-based game titled Urban Dead. Created by one Kevan Davis, Urban Dead is a multiplayer game that pits humans against zombies in a grid-based battle.

Various classes are available, including civilian, military, scientist, and even zombie. Turns are based on Action Points, which must be recharged over time in order to continue play.

Some character classes start with equipment, and all characters can search to find further objects during the course of the game - some are weapons, some are one-use items, others have subtler or more permanent effects. All characters start with at least one Skill, which grants them an extra ability or bonus in the game - by gaining experience points, players can buy further skills and develop their characters.
Both zombies and humans can form groups, take shelter, and communicate with each other. Actions and dialogue are also saved for players that aren't logged on at the time.

More information, screenshots, and a character creation page can be found at Urban Dead's official site.

For a browser based game, this isn't bad.  And if you're a fan of zombie things, it's kind of cool.
I've been playing it on and off for about a week.

You have to manage your action points well because you don't want to end up out in the open without shelter once you've run out of action points!  So when you're running out, head into a barricaded building to hide out.

There is a bunch of helpful stuff at the urban dead wiki site:

And there's even a map of the city with different views:
