Zombie Blocks Attack

by hgouveia - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Made with Construct2 by Scirra.
Music: http://www.audiosauna.com/studio/
SFX: https://www.bfxr.net/
- W to move forward
- S to move backward
- M to mute audio
- Mouse to aim and directions

The idea is to survive the 3 levels in order to win,
each level has 3 zombie waves, each wave gets harder!

Good Luck! ;)

Only tested Google Chrome

Reminds me of a kind of Killing Floor but 2D, it is fun albeit a little hard.

Cool game, man. It's hard when you can run backwards! Also my game's source is now live, if you wanted to take a look (https://bitbucket.org/jhrrsn/ld48-26/src)

Nice controls and effects, it's very polished.

I like the concept and the look, but it seems that I could easily find spots where all I had to do was not move, not engage the zombies, and they'd never be able to reach me. Also, the green boxes were NOT clearly ammo until I ran out of bullets :)

Good idea, nice juice with the screen shaking etc, maybe a but too easy to cheat

"Hmm, what should I do about this "minimalism" theme? ooh, I know, minimal thought process for a compelling enemy! ZOMBIES!"

Love it, I don't know why it is, but give me zombies and a gun any day of the week !

It kinda differs a little from the survivals i've seen around

Nice job!

Ahhh I kept running out of ammo! Really cool.

Why would I want to hit 'M'?

Apr 30, 2013 @ 12:45am

Cool little design. I guess it's a points chase but if the object is really survive then all I had to do was wait in a corner... I wonder if adding some other feature that forced you to hunt the zombies would have helped, like maybe if you have some bar that's draining and is only re-filled by zombie blood or something.

Cool little game, but I thought it could be a little bit harder. I felt there was no challenge in the first two waves, and the main difficulty of the third was that I ran out of ammo. Otherwise, well done!

Music is pretty inventive :)

The controls are good.
Weird thing is that I managed to survive standing still at a random point on the map. I beat the game without doing much (killed half a dozen baddies).
Also, when I stop the music I can't manage to turn it back on.

The controls felt good and the game play was fairly enjoyable. The graphics definitely felt minimalist ;). The music combination of music and graphics gave the game an almost tron feel.

Yeah, great controls! Nice interpretation of the theme. My only complaint is that the audio is a bit grating. Other than that, solid game for 48 hours!

Nice game, I didn't much like how you couldn't sidestep or move backwards

Nice game! Preety good executed top down shooter. It was fun, but I missed the option to move sideways with A and D. It seem, that sometimes enemys can glitch through thin walls, if they push each other.
I really hat a lot of fun playing the game. Good work!

Solid game, nice death effects and good use of minimalism. I'd have liked to move sideways too though, good for storming in around corners :-).

Pretty good 2d shooter, fairly hardcore.

Nice, but I didn't want to play it long because of the blood.

Great game! I've really enjoyed it.

May 6, 2013 @ 6:54pm

The music got repetitiv in the second level and I got short on ammo, so I just waited in one corner for the timer to finish ;) I liked the controls, overall it fit the theme quite well.

Spiridios says ...

Need more ammo! Ok, maybe not, but that's what I kept saying while playing it. :P Fun little shooter, just hard enough to be challenging.
