Nice job!
I had some issues with the game... everytime a guy would hit me, the game would stall before playing the sound...

Nice and simple game. The big enemies took me by surprise as I was standing right next to the black boxes when killing the last small guy. Vertical shooting might have been nice, but good job for 4 hours!

The game really could've used some set of instructions, took a good while for me to find the shoot button.

I liked the enemy sprite :)
Ability to restart the game after you have died would've been nice too

So to be clear...Is it supposed to look like he is in a padded cell?

Definitely theme: Straigt up shoot everybody.
It was a bit annoying that you can lose multiple lifes on one enemy.
Some bug with the sprite flip: When walking diagonally the sprite sometimes remains in the left/right pos while the figure is actually shooting at the correct side.
Oh, and the fire button is X everybody.

I thought it was taking inspiration from that old halloween commodore game but then suddenly I found I can shoot XD

I thought it was too easy, but then suddenly these huge enemies showed up! It was a cool surprise to me. The look of the enemies is cool, but the gameplay could be a bit more innovative.

The bio says it was made in 4 hours, so props for that, but the game was really loud and there wasn't any real clear goal. When the big enemies spawned it made me jump, so you got a point for humor. :)

So, after giving it another try, i must say, it defintitly is nice, especially for 4 hours, good job dude!

Nothing else to really say than a simple and short game. Not the best around but for the couple of minutes it runs, it's alright.

Apr 29, 2013 @ 6:18pm

Simple and fun. You shoot, enemies die.

THE HUGE GUYS GOT THE JUMP ON ME! Caught me off guard, haha! Not bad for 4 hours!

Pretty nice for the development time. How about making the game a bit harder to increase play time?

Simple & Fun. Where are "replay" or "continue"?

LOLZ! I kinda flinched when I saw them. :) Good job!

Good for the development time. Would be nice to see some AI and additions like being able to shoot vertically or in a different direction to your movement.

Pretty nice, the music was nice and addicting :)

May 3, 2013 @ 12:43pm

Fairly simple fun but I'm not complaining considering it was just developed in 4 hours.

Thanks for posting the gameplay video. I couldn't play the entry since I'm not on Windows.

Would have been nice if the enemies reset when you die, but otherwise quite playable. Amusing animations too.

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.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
