by bzizizi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A game about killing singing zombies and exploding cars in a once nice city.

Changelog 1.01:
- Nerfed zombie speed and health

I used some samples from "ATOM SPLITTER AUDIO - Games and 8Bit Kit Volume 1 and 2" i got from http://woolyss.com/chipmusic-samples.php. These are original and royalty free.

Also used plenty sounds from bfxr.net.

A map is provided here as the city is quite large and boring: http://ld22.mgrilec.com/map.png, as well as being displayed underneath the player at ld22.mgrilec.com.

None of the zombies sang :(

I enjoyed it initially, but there was too much slow grind/running away for my enjoyment. I got killed when I was almost at the shopping center, and didn't want to replay it.

Good game, but the zombies could use a bit of a difficulty drop ;)

it's not really singing, more like playing randomly pitched noises :)

Zombies! I love zombies. I was intrigued by the "singing zombies" in the title, but the zombies in your game don't sing. I felt a bit cheated.

I really wanted to sing, because the song in the game got annoying really quick :-(

The challenge was good, though. I wish the city was a bit smaller.

Cool zombie game! You got most of the basics working pretty well, but the game could use some more variety. The zombie movement was also very...mathematical - In that they all sort of swooped in at you in the same way. The music started driving me crazy after about the fifth repetition. Overall good work though!

Pretty hard but quite fun! The music/ambiance suited the game well and the movement and shooting was well done. I am quite a fan of top down shooters.

I found it quite hard to stay alive at times due to the slow fire rate and fast enemy movements (1.01) and it wasn't intuitive to know where to go at times - with the indications being written on the ground. I would suggest perhaps a minimap or an actual map instead would make navigation in the game a little easier.

Overall, great game! Well done!

I think if the map was smaller it wouldn't feel as grindy. I was wondering why the zombies were walking faster than me. I liked the graphics and the music. The cat noise kept throwing me off since I kept thinking it was my cat. =^!^=

good looking game, the idea isn't bad, but needs more time to be executed better. Sound is good but the music loop was too short and got tiring quickly. I would love to see a shoot key added, constantly clicking the mouse button is uncomfortable to some of us. good work!
