Maze Shooter

by Yoni - Competition Entry


You are a brave warrior who has fallen into a robot-infested labyrinth. You have no ammo or any means of destroying the robots.

Maybe you can still figure out a way to survive.

If there's only 1 robot left, you will be able to disable it even without ammo. So the goal is to kill all the robots except 1.


The exe version can run on its own. The source version requires:
- Python 2.5.4
- pygame 1.9.1
- (optional) py2exe 0.6.9

To run: ; or MazeShooter.exe
To compile:

- Yoni

Haha, nice maze generation. Funny SFX for win/lose.
also: I just lost the game.

Fun game, I like the sound effects. Might be a little too based in luck though as one time I ended up being able to kill all the enemies just by moving right a bit moving back and moving right again, because they were all nicely lined up.But this probably won't make me mark you down.

Nice game, just didn't enjoy the movement that much, it was "clunky"... allowing for sliding on walls would have improved the game to no end...
The randomness makes it hard sometimes to accomplish the level...

Great adherence to theme, great retro feel. Really great first entry!

The idea fits the theme well, and it was pretty well-executed. I would have liked movement to be a bit smoother, however, and I found the mazes were often too difficult to line enemies up in, while other times an entire line of enemies would kill themselves. Great job anyway!

Seemed a bit slow

I thought this was kinda difficult. Like others said, it probably depends a lot on your luck with the maze generation. I think it would help if the player was allowed to touch the robots, just not touch bullets.

Very nice for a first entry, quite fun!

Agree the movement was a little clunky and that some luck was required (once I started in a twisted little passage with no exit trapped by robots, with no room to kill them).

Nice concept although quite easy to get stuck in a dead end. :(

Actually pretty fun. I played a few times and died until I got the hang of it and killed them all. It is often simple little games like this that I find the most fun. Liked the fake 1982 copyright date too.
