Neat little concept. I like the music as well. It is a bit too easy...until you get killed by a moving block.

It could us ea reload button. The relationship to the theme is tenuous at best.

Not a valid Win32 application, it seems. Shame.

I found that I spent most of my time in the game trapped by the blocks.

Good music and it was kinda fun, I like the implementation of '10 seconds', the moving walls were cool!

Brilliant concept, never seen anything like it so far. However sometimes a zombie spawned on top of me and I lost :c

Cool idea with the moving walls. I thought the zombies didn't feel like a threat. I think it would be really fun to take this idea and make it into a multiplayer game, replacing the zombies with people.

Damn Walls! Only problem: sometimes I die with no zombie nearby neither walls...

I liked it! Those walls can be dang brutal though - good thing they warn in advance when they'll be moving.

I like this a lot. It gets really tense when the timer's ticking down and you're waiting for a wall to move so you can grab a coin to reset it :)

A pretty smooth game. There seems to be something wrong with the rendering of the surrounding tiles. The player seems to slip under the tiles and blocks don't appear when I can collide with them. The audio is ok but I think the font is pretty hard to read.

The use of the theme is pretty nice, leads to good pacing. The controls are very nice to use.

The concept is good, even if spending a lot of time trapped inside walls can be a little annoying. But I had fun (and I liked the music)!
Also, naming the player instead of taking the current time for the highscore board would be a plus.

Bullet trails would make it look better, I think.
Very nice mechanics. Good challenge trying to avoid getting crushed by walls.
Nice work!

Having the walls constantly shift around was a cool mechanic. It made the game more frantic as you run around shooting zombies and collection coins. The music did start to get pretty repetitive after a short amount of time.

Not sure why, but Avira thinks this game is a virus and won't let me run it.

Nice game. :)

The concept of an ever changing stage was interesting.

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.
