I guess it’s not too late for writing a postmortem of my game with seriously too long title.

What went right:

Finishing a game. It speaks for itself. It was a lot of fun, too!

Shooting mechanics. It’s an entirely complete, ray-based weapon system. Weapons shoot with random deviation (0.1° step), and there’s support for multiple bullets shot at once.

“Art” style. I guess calling this stuff “art” is an exaggeration, but i really like how it turned out. Two-color menus look really nice in my opinion.

What went wrong:

Idea. My game doesn’t really follow the theme closely, people left some ideas in the comments. Why i haven’t thought of them earlier? 😉

Sounds. Not really wrong, but there’s exactly one gunshot sound for all of weapons in game.

Laziness. I should’ve added more species of zombies. This would make the game really more diverse.

Lack of polish. People complained about too long delay between waves and crappy controls.
