"Dead Block" is an third person Hack'n'Slay game, designed by "Candygun Games". Dead Block sets place into different kind of houses, where you need to find parts for your guitar to rock zombies to death. You can set traps which helps you to protect youself from the zombies. Most Achievements arent that hard expect of "Medal Seeker" and maybe "Poo Dance"

Playthrough 1

This playtrough is just for unlocking the completing the game achievement and some random achievements. You can play the game on hard if you want to, but i prefer to start on normal or easy to make the game and most achievements easier and get used to the game and the levels. Also there is only one difficulty achievement.

Playthrough 2

This secondary playthrough will be mainly for attaining Gold medals on all missions, to unlock the "Medal Seeker" achievement.

Playthrough 3

This playtrough is just for obtaining those ahievements that you missed if needed.


This game is a pretty funny game for some afternoons, to bad that the multiplayer is only offline. the achievements arent that hard to get.

You built every trap and a wood blockade in one level.

For this Achievement you need all three Characters and all traps of them (three traps each + blockade). If you have those collect as many nuts as possible then build each trap + blockade (i needed to build a blockade with each character)

You killed 20 zombies with a single bomb trap.

You need to build the bomb trap with Foxie (:dright:) and kill 20 Zombies with it. A simple method is to get as many zombies as possible to follow you, then build up the trap and cross your fingers, because it is pretty hard to count those zombies.

You employed 20 construction zombies.

Build up as many worker traps with Jack as possible (:ddown:) and wait for the achievement to unlock. maybe you need to build up new traps because they are used up.

You blocked all the doors and windows in one level.

Best to be done in the first level because there arent to many doors and windows. Just build up a blockade on every wall and window you find.

Ten infected zombies danced at the same time.

You need at least one coin for this achievement. You find coins by searching things lieing around.
Go to "Highschool" and make you way to the room where the guitar is located (let Jack and Foxy stay in an other room with a blockade). run around and try to destroy the chairs to make space for you to escape while gathering zombies. (NOTE: the astronaut zombies don't count) try to block some windows and make sure at least one zombies stays out. Run in circles around the zombies while opening some windows to let more zombies in or let them just break the blockades until you have enough. then go to the window which is still closed and make sure the zombies follow you. Replace the blockade with the poo trap and let the last zombie in, to infect the others, then run to the music box and insert coin

You played five minutes in darkness.

First level you can obtain this achievement is the villa. Just play trough the level until the light goes down and dont turn it on again until the achievement unlocks, dont be afraid "darkness" in this game isnt really "dark"

You killed three zombies with one melee attack.

Pretty easy achievement if you know how. In some levels are some TV's go find the antenna for them and build it on the TV. wait for some zombies to group up around the TV and smash them till you get three kills simultany. (easier difficulty will make the achievement easier because you do much more damage then on normal or hard)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1920/-0bZ+w==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/dead-block/achievement/54191-Game-Complete.html)Game Complete - 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
You completed all single player levels.

Go find the three Parts for the guitar or kill the number of zombies you need to to complete the level. The game has 10 Levels which arent to hard

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1920/+uQyAg==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/dead-block/achievement/54192-Medal-Seeker.html)Medal Seeker - 50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
You won all gold medals in all singleplayer levels.

For this you have to complete the game on hard to obtain the gold medals. You can replay each level and obtain your missing medals for "Destroyed objects" "searched things" "Zombie Kills" and "Numberof Death".
Go for Objects and Things first, if you manage it not to die its good, if not, dont worry you can review your teammates if they die. In my opinion Mike and Foxy are the best characters to play with. With mike build the poo trap or the box trap to make the zombies kill each other and with foxy of course the bomb trap and her weapon if available.
Also let the Bots do the work if your not alone and focus on buildung trap.

You activated the Jukebox and make a zombie dance.

Just insert a coin into a Jukebox with atleast one Zombie in the room.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1920/-znFHA==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/dead-block/achievement/54194-Cactus-Time.html) Cactus Time - 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
You searched four cacti in a row while playing Mike.

Mike is the Pathfinder boy, just run trough the Level and look for cacti. there are around 6 in the 4th and last Level in the game. Dont search any other item in between or you need to repeat the level.

You built five blockades with super awesome finish in a row.

Jack (the Builder) is the only Character which can build up blockades to the highest level without upgrades. Go to windows or doors and build up blockades (:dup:) a little bar will apear on which you need to hit the smaller greener bars 5 times in a row. Repeat this five times and the achievement is yours (easier difficulty will make the achievement easier because the green bar is much bigger then on normal or hard)

Thanks for the guide shorty. I bought this game today and I'm gonna start it tomorrow. So your guide is gonna come in handy.

07-07-2011, 12:09 PM
just thought i would help out abit with some of the achievements for your guide,best level i have found so far for bomber is the school you get lots of zombies to follow you when you think you got about 20 build a bomb trap,try to keep the other ai characters on the other side of the map or they will go and kill some of the zombies making your chances of getting bomber less.

thanks for not waiting atleast half a hour for me to complete the guide, but im fine with it ;)

hope atleast others can esteem the work

If anyone likes to add anything, give hints, finding errors etc just tell me pls.

dont worry there is always one dick in the bunch. they have prolly never tried to write a guide to see how much editing and copying and pasting needs to be done. good job with the guide. now all you need is to tweak it and fix the grammar and such. ill be starting this today it looks awesome. on another note if someone doesnt jump in a start a guide then one may never get written. there is a lot of arcade games that dont have guides till this day.

07-07-2011, 04:44 PM
would be great if anyone can check this tactic to get the bomber achievement.

if you start up the warehouse lvl and pick up mike, destroy everything as fast as possible, if you got wood mike will instant repair those blockades on the three windows. if you got enough prts fo the bomb trap an think thee are enough zombies infrontof those three windows, go place it in the middle.

would be great if anyone can tell me if this works, cuz i have that achievement allready but it seems pretty simple on here

//EDIT: i did it on hard, dont know it is allways the same amount of zombies coming

07-07-2011, 08:08 PM
This guide will help me get started.

One thing though. You do need to review your roadmap for spelling and grammar. It is bordering on horrendous.

:] away to start the game now. Look forward to a finished guide.

i know my english is not the best. but atleast i try ;)

now i have the 200 GS completed i focus on completing the guide and checking grammar (tomorow, because it is 10:20 pm here ;) )

Be lucky if i get to use your guide. Game randomly froze on me in the diner again!

I was wondering for the gold medal achievement do you need to get all the medals in one play of that level or can you do multiple playthroughs to get them all?

multiplayer playtroughs work as well as single ones. i missed two gold medals because i died on two missions. just focus on destroy and finding things plus the kills and then make a speedrun trough the lvl if you died.

What is the first level quintiple super awesome can be obtained?

I think bungalow the level with just mike and jack if im wrong then try hotel or do it on the last level.

07-11-2011, 03:44 AM
In my opinion, Record Label is the easiest level to get Poo dance on. There are very few gas mask guys and no astronauts (both are immune to the poo) and the first room is huge, with 5 entrances and a juke box. Block off the windows and the door near the jukebox and empty out the room. Allow the windows to break once you see >25 or so zombies since they kill eachother and what not, and once the room is pretty full, put the trap on the door next to the jukebox. Run in circles to group everyone up in the middle until the disease spreads through the crowd and then rush to the juke box and turn it on.

You can also get work force here just as easily. Just block off all the windows on the first floor, wait for the enemies to pile up and quickly put the hat trap on each window.

For both achievements, make sure foxy and mike are not in the rooms (I put them in the first floor bathroom, and you don't even need to go get foxy for either achievement)

Naturally, Quintupel Super Awesome can also be gained here while blocking the windows/doors for either previous achievement.

Good guide will get started on this now.

I think I'm noticing that all the guitar elements are always hidden in the same locations.
Has anyone else noticed this? (maybe I'm just wishing)

If this is true, then if we die, we reload the level and run straight to the items and finish quickly.

It would be great to have locations of the keys as well.

That would make this guide's information much more useful...
again, IF it's true that all the guitar elements are in the same location.

UPDATE: So far, I'm not seeing where this is true.

What's some advice to keep your AI teammates alive?

Keep them in the same room with you?
Switch to them often and replenish their health?

Just looking for some techniques. Thanks.

UPDATE: Someone suggested this,
Keep an eye on the AI. They have a bad habit of attacking zombies and getting killed. A good idea near the end of a level is to barricade both in a room and go on by yourself.

4/10 !!! ?

I DISAGREE ! (so far)

Unless someone offers an amazing bit of advice, I don't see how this isn't a 5/10 or a 6/10. Getting those gold medals is very difficult.

i.e. The "High School" level on hard, no one dies. Very, very difficult. You have to search everywhere, but zombies are pouring in.

03-09-2013, 07:54 PM
Got any tips on how to stop this shitty game freezing when you switch characters or finish a level? Beaten school on hard 3 fucking times and each time it freezes on the music part before giving me my gold no death medal.
