Extreme Zombie Blood Withdrawals

by brobutter - 48 Hour Compo Entry

In the game, you somehow became addicted to zombie blood as a child so when you grew up you became a scientist and created a zombie apocolypse just to satisfy you thirst for zombie blood. Then you realized that it's messed up to unleash zombie apocolypses on innocent people so you decided to save your town from the danger you created.

The goal is to save the people with arrows above their head by touching them.

But at the same time, because you're so addicted to zombie blood, you can only go ten seconds without zombie blood before you start to die. So you have to also make sure and slaughter a bunch of zombies so you can drink their blood.

It's not as finished as I wanted it to be but oh well!

this game lack of innovation (just for me :D), but it's very well made! Good job!

Extremely fun! Usually games made this quickly that have upgrades are really not very well considered but you didn't focus on the weapon upgrades but rather the difficulty of getting all the civilians in time. Nice work!

Wow, this looks surprisingly very polished, I liked it. Not very original but everything is so smooth and fun that I forgot about that. I also like that after the 10 seconds countdown you don't die immediately, you still have time to deal some damage and maybe gain some seconds. Nice job.

This had a good implementation of the theme and was fun to play, but the repetitive audio got annoying.

What a cool game! Great job! I never saw any weapons to pick up though...

The music is a bit too much for me. Especially since there are no sound effects at all.

I also found the screen shake when you shoot distracting.

Other than those minor complaints this is great stuff.

Main menu was a bit static, needed more life to it. Sweet little game and that was before I remembered there was a shop. Like the graphics, music suits, all very satisfying. Probably did shake too much, think it did my eyes in a little. Otherwise a great game with polish.

Pretty fun. I liked this camera effects when shooting and the music fit pretty well. Found it a little bit easy and didn't need to buy any guns other than shotgun to get through the game without any issues. Still, it was fun and satisfying to play. Good work for the 48!

The shaky cam screen was a little too much

Nice work. Polished graphics, good sounds. Zombies are bit overdone though. Some of the zombies look like creepers how they walk without arms and their feet just march on. Very cute. 4/10.

8/10, sorry. (4/5, but I put 4/10 DOH!)

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.
