After I unzipped the file and launched the setup for this game, Malwarebytes suddenly woke up and told me that it was infected with FileRepMalware. Maybe a false positive, but I decided not to risk going any further. (I haven't had that before with downloads from this site.)

The large blocky characters of the game are like they were drawn by a little child using dull crayons.
I expect better definition of the characters and not just blobs of pixels on a 1920 x 1080 screen.
Poor programming of the characters does not make use of the FHD screen at all.
I have seen better images on an 8 bit machine.
This game is childish and immature at best.
You must be deluding yourselves if you think this is a good game with High-Definition graphics.
It could have been written for a 4k screen but if the characters are large and blocky then it is still a bad 8 bit game.

Bob,

regarding your comment ''You must be deluding yourselves if you think this is a good game with High-Definition graphics''

No one has said this was a good game or suggested the game has Hi resolution graphics. What I was trying to say was that Commodore games did not have graphics that were as good as today's game. They were blocky (due in part to the processing power of the time, the hardware of the time, for example the monitor which as I mentioned in my previous comment only had cells that were equivalent to 64 pixels. As for seeing better images on an 8 bit machine; show me some example of a better image that was taken from an 8 bit machine and I'll accept your original claim that some games had better graphics than today's game. I very much doubt you can.

I played plenty of games on a Commodore and loved most of them, but I can remember how poor the graphics were compared to games released today.

User with Pentium4 (or lower) shouldn´t use it - Stop and go Play :(

I can play Oblivion, Fallout3 and also Skyrim (all with many Mods) without any lagproblem, but this Game is unplayable with my System.

André Uwe Dürner,
No one else reported issues with lag. Thousands of copies were downloaded.The most likely explanation is that you may have had something running on your computer that was conflicting with the game, or your graphics drivers may be outdated for this game. It ran absolutely fine on three of my computers, and one lap top (that only has a single core cpu and an integrated graphics chip).

is this the best graphics that you can come up with?
My Commodore 64 from the 1970s was better than this.

No it wasn't.

Bob,
We tend to remember things from our past; especially things we enjoyed through ''rose tinted spectacles''. There's no way the graphics from a computer that boasted a 320 x200 pixels image size with a maximum of 16 colors would be graphically better than today's game. The following example shows a 1920 x 1080 images of a screen capture from School of the Dead: Anastasia, reduced to 640 x 480 compared to three popular Commodore games. (Draculas Castle, Ghost busters and Donkey Kong)
The size of each cell on a commodore monitor was equivalent to 64 pixels on a modern monitor. You can see this clearly in all the Commodore games images as the text and images did not have smooth lines, instead they looked stepped (like a Minecraft game), becasue the resolution was so low and the monitor cells were so large; whereas today's game has smooth curves with no stepping.

Jerry, Totally agree.

There's no way the graphics from a computer that ''boasted'' a 320 x 200 pixels image size with a maximum of 16 colors would be graphically better than today's game, especially considering the size of each cell on a commodore monitor was equivalent to 64 pixels on a modern monitor. As I said in reply to Bob, we tend to remember things through rose tinted spectacle. I remember playing the RPG 'Darklands' via a 640×480 VGA monitor in 1992, thinking it was the best thing since sliced bread, but when I compare it to even the lowliest arcade game released today, it looks absolutely horrendous (though i still consider the actual game play brilliant).

The game is quite bugged. Zombies can push you out of the screen, the gun sometimes completely stops working (even though I have a lot of ammo). Sometimes you don't score a hit, even if you stand just near monster, etc.
And it's ridiculously difficult, as the monsters respawn in a few places, and you have limited life.

We have guest staying over Easter, so I may not have time to post a full review today. This is a 48hr giveaway, so will add to what I've already posted if and when I have the time to play the game further over the next two days.

Introduction:
This is the story about a girl named Anastasia, who ends up in a school filled with hideous monsters and gains amazing strength after a strange incident. She has to find her brother while trying to defeat crowds of the dead, collect everything useful and leave this terrible place where she is losing her mind every minute.

Fight dozens of monsters within the walls of a creepy school! Many unique enemies and bosses.
Edited reference accessed HERE. 22nd April 2019 2019
Installation:
School the Dead - Anastasia downloads to a 192 MB zip file that unzips to two files, (a set-up executable and a read me). The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed if you wish. The installed game is approximately 189 MB in size.
C:\Program Files (x86)\School Of The Dead Anastasia
Five shortcuts are installed to the desktop, four of which can be safely deleted (i.e. Falco Space - Online Game!, FalconLine Online Games Website, FalcoGo WebGL Games! and Free Games Downloads!). If you don't want to install the games shortcut to the desktop during installation, just make sure the install desktop shortcut is unchecked when the 'additional task's window appears; you will still get two of the other Falcoware shortcuts installed (i.e. FalconLine Online Games Website & FalcoGo WebGL Games shortcuts). Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure you also uncheck the appropriate checkbox when the 'additional task's window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window).

The Game:
I doubt I'll have time to post a full review of this game today becasue we have guest staying over. The game is running for 48 hours, so i'll try and post something tomorrow. form my limited game play experience I would give this an overall positive thumbs up. I like these types of arena games, though it's not strictly a full blown arena game because you have some elements of exploration. There are weapon pickups as well as magic; but ammo and potions are limited. You also carry an axe, which you swing with the LMB, but you can only swing it a few times before your stamina bar is depleted. it takes several seconds to recharge, so make sure you can maneuver away from any undead while it is recharging. The magic weapon is activated by the RMB. To hit an undead locate your mouse pointer over the victim and fire.
After each wave of undead you get several seconds to recover and find more ammo and health potions. Just walk over these to pick them up. The action key is E, this opens doors and the map, which you can access at various points through each level. I've posted a few videos, one of which is a full walk-through which took 1hr 17 minutes to complete. If like me you are a slow player, the game will likely take much longer to complete.
I'll update this further when and if i get any spare moments once our guests have departed.

Conclusion:
I've only played the game for a few moments so that I could post some screen captures. It's definitely a game i will be exploring more later. The Steam community give this an overall positive review, but I cannot give it a score at the moment as I've not played it long enough. Judging by the videos I've watched and the limited experience of the game (about 10+ minutes) I would suggest down loading it as it looks like a decent game and seems well constructed. There are several language options available (see image above).
Videos of School the Dead: Anastasia:
You can see a few in-game videos of game play HERE, HERE (русский), HERE (teaser trailer) & HERE (full 1hr 17min play through).
If you miss today's game giveaway you can always get the game via Steam HERE for £4.79/$5.99/€4.99/₽199. The Steam community give the game an overall positive thumbs up.

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting School the Dead - Anastasia to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e. the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try white-listing the setup.gcd file. In the almost 12 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.
If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, you have a game to offer the community, or are unable to download the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve you can do so HERE
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the developer NOINDEX GAMES and the distributor Falcoware Games for giving away School the Dead - Anastasia and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.
