I loved it. You've got mad skills.

It was a bit difficult to play on a trackpad, but other than that, it was great! I used to play a lot of Virtua Cop, so this really brings back memories. Great job.

Excellent! Difficulty was just right - died my first time, then beat it on my second run. Reminded me of Time Crisis. :) I love that you can shoot down the knives! Great job.

Nice work! I would've liked a cover mechanic (i was searching the keyboard for one, though i probably only needed it coz i was trackpadding). Loved the deadpan voice...

@pdyxs: The Shame of it is, that is my normal voice. I am just too self conscious to scream into the microphone. Also I did not want my neighbors calling the cops on my death screams.

Really cool entry. Again the trackpad difficulty was intense. But I enjoyed it and actually played it through anyway. One of the best games I've seen so far.

The intro screen is funny.
But the enemy's throw there knifes a bit fast. didnt get too far :(

* Very nice. Finished the level.
* Had a hard time with reloading. Is there a key for it, what I do is I click on the icon on the lower right
* Sometimes the enemies doesn't die at the first hit.

Very good entry, I liked it.
The only bad thing is the sound of the gun. But 5/5 for Theme and Graphics!

The gun sound is me flicking my note book right next to the speaker. I never claimed to be an audio engineer. But I am glad you liked the rest of the game.

I'm biased. I love railshooters to a fault. But this was an incredible piece of work for 48 hours.
Animations, scripted scene, ragdolls (I adore ragdolls - ragdolls are proven to make any game 83% more legendary) - considering I spent the better half of a day not making squares collide I must bow to you sir.

Excellent piece of work :)

Oh yeah, great twist on the prison break meaning :D

Great game.. I always wanted to make a lightgun game... maybe for the next LD. A lot of content and really fun. Good luck!!

Neat. Although it took me 2 seconds to realize it was on rails :-)

Very impressive animations (and graphics in general) for being done in one weekend!

It was a little frustrating that once a knife was in the air, there didn't seem to be much you could do to avoid it (though it's possible I missed something).

Thanks for a great game!

Nice. I particularly like how you can shoot down the knives.

So much fun! Wish I had a light gun and a foot pedal. As skilled as this guard is, I doubt he'd be keeping his job for long after this incident.

i bet this would be fun as hell with a light gun. what you achieved in the time limit is utterly staggering. amazing work.

Virtua Cop in 48 hours? Consider me impressed. The game was also really fun to play. Top notch graphics considering the timeframe.

Nice game, I like the use of the rag doll effect, the graphics could be a little more polished but the animations are cool. The gameplay is well tweaked.

That was awesome, but very hard on mousepad. Great animations and ragdoll =D
