Painkiller

by @Micle2000 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Well, first Ludum Dare... didn't do too great but its pretty close to the theme, IMO.

It's about being trapped in a mental hospital, all by yourself.

Protip: Actually click on the inmates to stab them.

I couldn't seem to stab people, so just spent the time running away. Music is really ominous and fitting, adding to the desolate and panicked mood.

Thanks! You have to actually click on the people to stab them... probably should mention that somewhere

probably music related...
also, sorry if the music keeps playing after the applet is closed

Congrats on your first Dare, Micle2000. How the music keeps playing after the applet's closed is a nice touch to represent the lingering mood. ;)

I got stuck on the third floor (the one after the first enemy), but it was a pretty impressive first game. Definitely dig the dark atmosphere and the soft piano. Good job!

Nice that you participated in your first dare!

The game is too glitchy though, you need to reserve more time to test if everything is working.

The worst offender is that too often, when you appear in a new floor, you may be stuck between boxes without a route to the next stairway -- you need to set up some routine in the maze generation function that verifies if there is a valid path between the entry stairway and the exit stairway before validating the level.

Good luck next LD!

I like the game's randomness, but it some times put enemies very close to my spawn.
