Screenshot looks cool, but when I tried running it my antivirus automatically removed it :/

Thanks for your reply! I guess that's because it was a single .exe so I changed it. Should work now.

Great game!
But when you have no ammo left, you can´t open the crates.

Looks very nice... Great job!

No worries people, it's no virus. It was made with Game Maker so that confuses me.

Really awesome graphics ;) And easy to learn hit-N-run gameplay (boxhead like)^^.

Nice game. There seems to be pathfinding bug, if i hug that campfire, enemies don't update moving direction, they just go into whatever vector they had. Otherwise very nicely finished game.

Awesome graphics and pretty fun game play!

I had to disable my antivirus to play it. At first I didn't know you had to shoot the boxes to open them. Also somehow my guy gut stuck in a tree stump above the starting position.

Hey there :) Must say I was really impressed by this game! The graphical style and audio is wonderful, leaving a great atmosphere. The overall experience felt really polished, you did a great job!

The gameplay mechanics might not be new or innovative, but they work and the game is great fun. I also like how you can be strategic about the first weapon, grouping enemies together to damage more enemies with a single shot :) Small cool details like that makes for a good game. Enjoyed the unlockables too :)

One small thing, I noticed that pressing q seems to enable some sort of debug screen for colliders or something, you get this overlay of red and green squares. Just a small detail :)

Great job! Good luck with the competition :)

I made my senior project in highschool with an earlier version of GameMaker and Mcafee removed it right before the presentation (the next update fixed it though). That was tough to explain.
I personally find the game too difficult simply from being hurt by the explosions from the first weapon. But other than that it's a fun little survival shooter - round 3 was the farthest I made it. And the graphics are well done :)

Aug 26, 2013 @ 3:12pm

The retro graphics are very nice and personal in a way.
The game is also quite challenging (only ever made it to weapon no. 2...) and in a good way.
Look at all these guys celebrating christmas with me after I ran out of ammo: !

Looks really neat. It's kinda annoying when you have to wait for the next supply. The starting ammo is not enough for all those monster, well for me that is.

Thanks for all the nice feedback (also thanks Schwiggy!). I will now fix the little bugs.

had fun with this!! the only problem is the audio is a bit low.

Thank you :) You're right, I'm sorry about that.

Liked it very much, wish i could do graphics like that ^^

Very cool game. :) Doesn't seem to fit the theme that well, but other than that I really like it. Simple yet challenging gameplay, it actually feels quite good and is very rewarding.

Nice game :)

I enjoyed this game a lot. The way the crates drop in reminds me of worms

Really liked the track, and the grenade launcher is really fun to use because of the delay.

I ran out of bullets though and couldn't open a supply crate (if A opened crates that'd be good even if it didn't hurt the zombies)

Good game overall. Thanks.

Good game, as others have pointed out, a way to open crates when lacking ammo would have improved things, I got completely stuck and just had to let the things eat me :(

The rounds (60s) are a bit long, especially the first one. Really loved the overall gameplay. The explosions are a bit strange: you take damages until a little bit after the end of the explosion anim (old school!).
The theme connection is also a little light.

Thanks deepnight! You're right, I tried but didn't have enough time to fix the explosion "bug".

Nice game!
I liked how standard gun's bullets added depth to gameplay, since at first I shot at will and then realised it's counterproductive :D

The graphics and music were nice. The movement was smooth, but it was annoying to have to stop moving and aim in order to attack enemies. There were some other small gameplay annoyances, but it felt nice overall. Good work!
