This is a pretty original idea! I think the collisions are a bit off, since I would shoot 5 or 6 times straight at the guy and it wouldn't kill him. Nice job though.

I just improved the collisions. Now it should be a bit easier to kill the guys :)

Survived 1m50s :) Became way too hard quickly though: those old men run fast! I liked the fact that the laser goes both ways (but be honest, that's probably for ease of implementation, right?).

Maybe the collision boxes are too big, cause it seemed really hard to avoid them.

@nddrylliog: Well played! I haven't spent a lot of time on the AI so it still needs some tweaking.
About the laser you are right :) Typically I use line/circle collisions which is more straightforward. But I think it is also fun to have both directions.

That old man is crazy and, I suspect, a product of cloning technology.

That was daft but fun. :-) The gun direction was a bit tricky to get used to though.

Simple fun game, felt like 20 hits made it drag on a little too long, but overall pretty good.

Genuinely made me laugh. I also liked the out-of-the-ordinary shooting mechanic. Is it shooting back through your own chest, though? It also fits the theme well and I enjoyed the music.
Good work!

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.
