Zomble Hunter Deluxe

Yay, my second Ludum Dare

You are a zombie, and you walk really slowly, and are really vulnerable. However, you do have the ability to go into an all out rage, and charge towards the enemies (by left clicking).

You want to eat the humans (to get some score) and destroy the blue guards. Watch out for heroes!

Note: Source is in Flash cs3 format.

Cool game, with more difficulty than expected. But maybe it's a little too random, because when you have several blue guy on screen, it's the end.

Nice job creating a playable game. I really felt slow and vulnerable as a zombie. Although, it wasn't very apparent how to use the special charging ability.

A demo screen or 5 second tutorial would have helped make this immediately playable, though the learning curve isn't that steep.

It's not immediately apparent that heroes are different than people to those that haven't read the directions. If there was some obstacles it could be a bit more interesting as the guards have a tendency of backing you into the corner if you run out of charge. A little more graphical feedback or sound to let the player know what is going on would be helpful.

Interesting idea but it seemed really buggy to me. The framerate was really inconsistent - the action would speed up randomly at times. I was a bit confused about when I was raging and when I was vulnerable too.

I sort of like the charging aspect. Too easy for blue guys to gang-up on you. Controls didn't feel right. I'd have either had the zombie follow the mouse pointer and charging when it was clicked or had a charge key on the keyboard.

Good Feedback.

I made this in Flash, which only has a preset frame limiter, which is pretty constricting.

Interesting game. I really liked it, was confused at first. But after a few games it became clearer.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
