Siren's Wail

by panzermancer - 48 Hour Competition Entry

(this paragraph relates to 8/21/11) I was only aware of this particular dare about 18 hours ago, if that. I started working on it at about noon, with some barebones things done in the morning. I personally found it fun to make, although I assure my next submissions will have more time spent on them.

So pretty much, your city's about to be nuked or something of the sorts, and logically it'd be best suited to high-tail it out of there. Of course, nothing's stopping you from grabbing some loot along the way - call it reparations, cash it in for your troubles. A non-linear goal of simply "get outside the city" and plenty of different ways to interact with the game world allow for all sorts of different solutions, not just one. For example, you can:

-Drive a tank through a strip-mall
-Assassinate a general and raid his military base
-Rob a bank using mines

And so forth and so on. Source is included in the zip, and I even put an .mp3 of the soundtrack in case someone finds it catchy.

Have fun!

Even with the simple graphics, this game was still quite fun. I spent at least 20 minutes playing this game!

Nice game! The only thing I don't really like is that in the narrow corridors, it can be too easy to get hit by a bullet.

Nice! There's definitely a lot of mazes in this LD, but this one actually has stuff to find!
