Play the game "Earn to Die 2012" online by locating its page on free flash game websites, including NotDoppler.com, MiniClip.com, AddictingGames.com and Kongregate.com. The game involves purchasing upgrades to customize a car that you then drive through hoards of undead during the zombie apocalypse.
At the start of the game, after watching or skipping the opening cinematic, you see a screen that shows you how many in-game days have passed since you started playing and the current level you must complete to move forward. To attempt to beat the level, you must first visit the Garage to customize your car. In the garage, you have the option to purchase different upgrades for the car's body, such as stronger tires or a larger fuel tank, as well as weapons to help kill zombies. After purchasing and installing the upgrades, you proceed to the level. You are also able to unlock different vehicles in the garage once you earn enough money.
During each level, you need to use the up arrow to accelerate your car forward and move through the level. Each level has different obstacles that make it harder to move forward, such as steep hills. Earn money by running over zombies with your car or killing them with any weapons active on the car.
