Doctor Whoops and the Running Fellow

by Fiona - Competition Entry

This is an unfinished entry, but it's still highly playable.

What I didn't have time to finish:

* Music and sound. The entire thing is silent. This is my biggest regret.
* The vast majority of the last level.
* An ending. (The game just closes)

To play use WADS(or arrow keys) to move and the mouse to shoot.

This was tough and I appreciated the frequent autosaves. And the dinosaurs.

Mainly it reminds me of a scene from Doctor Who:

Doctor: What?!
Donna: Oh!
Doctor: What?!
Donna:Who are you!?
Doctor: Wh-
Donna: Where am I!?
Doctor: WHAT!?
Doctor: WHAT!?!?

You've got a good thing going both in style and gameplay. I like the combination of pre-determined hard obstacle patterns with a relatively forgiving checkpoint system. Kept me on that "just one... more... try" edge.

The graphical style hit a really nice spot. I felt it needed perhaps a bit of tweaking/cleaning up, but it was very unique and inviting.

Overall a job very well done.

You really shouldn't joke about pregnancy.

This is a quite interesting take on the runner-genre. And I oly figured out that you can move 30 secs in

Fun doctor who tie in and nice graphics. I felt like the movement wasn't useful enough, though.

Making a multi level game with a boss fight at the end is quite an accomplishment for a 48 hour contest. I really like how each level had its own game dynamic. The intro was a bit too long, but game itself was great.

finally back to reviewing.. had a lot of fun with this. I try not to give out too many 5s, gave you a 5 for fun because I was determined to beat the boss despite rising frustration, which means you were doing something right :) Sound would've been nice, but otherwise great entry!
