Cityscape

by mattdev - 48 Hour Competition Entry

Finally finished!

In Cityscape, you're trying to survive the oncoming zombie hordes. In each level you have to survive for 60 seconds, before heading to the exit point (which appears on the mini-map as a yellow dot) - if you make it that long, you win the level. Each consecutive level is increasingly difficult.

You've got to also keep your food levels up, and refill your ammo occasionally. There are shops that spawn randomly (marked green on the mini-map), which sell these goods. If you run out of food, you'll gradually lose health until you die.

Aim with the mouse, shoot with the mouse button, and move around with WASD or the cursor keys.

Food and ammo always seem to be more expensive than the amount of money I have. Also, if I shoot too much my character seems to decide to tard around regardless of the direction I try to send him in.

However, you did a good job of making the situation feel tense by swarming the player with an assload of zombies, and the music is very nice.

Nice game, good theme and although at times it can be a little overwhelming fighting so many things/getting stuck it still leaves you trying to win and thats fun.

Didn't even really need the gun, there was no way I could kill all the zombies and so the only thing to do was keep moving. Overall alright.

This was sweet! Music was fitting and most of the mechanics were self explanatory. I think it'd have been nicer with a warm up period and barricades but I enjoyed it a lot, solid effort.

good submission, I enjoyed playing it. Zombies! Would have been nice to have had some sounds on the gun fire, zombie death, shop buying ect but I really liked the music.

It's easy to get stuck against walls, which makes it more frantic but it could've been a bit more forgiving. Cool game overall.

Not bad, can be a bit overwhelming too soon, maybe impossible XD but I dig the idea, time didn't allow for good balance but I hope you can work on that later.

Fun, but zombies die too slow. If you are cornered, you're toast. Although that may be the point. Could use a little variety. Overall, nice art and music. Could use sound effects. Could you more interesting layout, but of course I realize this is a 48h entry.

What a mean game. The zombies seamed almost invinvible. The soundtrack is great. Missing sound effects.
