You are just coming from the mall, on the way to your car. Sadly, the way leads through a car park which is a famous hideout for robbers and other criminals - it's pretty danegrous to go there alone, so take your pepper spray and show them who's boss!

Actually really fun once it got going! Could do with the difficulty ramping up faster though, or the gaps between waves being shorter. The hectic waves were great fun but the easy ones and the walking segments felt like a chore - if condensed into 10 waves for faster play it could be really addictive. Also liked the retro SFX, except for the incessant tick/footstep one... and kudos for having a leaderboard :)

Good one :)
Quite charming aside from the walk step sound. Is there an end to the game? Would've loved to see some more progress like wave number or parking lot floor number.

An endearing game, finished on first try with one bag remaining. Not that innovative, since it's basically a low-fi version of Space Channel 5, but the premise of pepper-spraying ninjas kept me smiling. Like others have said already, the difficulty should ramp up earlier, and the tick/footstep sound is a bit annoying, while the other sounds are retro just in the right way.

Rhythm macing game? Genius! I only wish it had ramped up faster so I realized that was the genre I was playing. At first I was like "why can't I move, and what is that godawful clicking sound?" Quite a bit of fun in the end.

Well done!
At first I was like, I totally hit that guy but he stole my bag, and then I was like, ohhhh rhythm game!
Congrats on finishing the LD!

I found the metronome sound effect really irritating at first, but after a while it just sort of became monotonous background noise I could zone out to.
I do think it does start off a bit too slow though.

I agree with the comments on ramping up the difficulty faster. Pretty good once it starts getting difficult. But still.. ninjas!

This is really great simple game and is pretty entertaining. It is one of the only games I played a couple of times.:)
