by bonsairobo - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Trapped in a room filled with zombies, your weapon may only fire every 10 seconds.

If you want to change the resolution, it's in config/window.cfg. On the 2nd line, 0 for windowed, 1 for fullscreen.

You might need this Visual C++ 2012 redist:

Also, this game requires an OpenGL 3.0 compatible graphics card.

Fun game, but the controls are too ambidextrous for me.

Hello! The idea sounds nice, but i can't get the game to work. I installed the redistributable you provided, but when i run the program the following happens:
Windowed mode: the screen opens for a split second and immediately closes.
Fullscreen mode: the screen turns black and flickers a few times between the desktop and the black screen,then program closes.

I am dead. Liked the bounce mechanic, was able to harvest lots of zombies by hovering in my bullet. Felt like 10 secs was a long time to be doing nothing while I waited for the zombies to catch up and eat me, I think that took away from the fun.

Fails to start on 32 bit Windows XP: not a valid win32 application.
Ouch :(

The only reason that would happen is if you are missing one of the resource files. On linux, I could tell you to run the game from the console to see which file you are missing, but SDL on Windows does not allow console output (to my knowledge).

And to RandomMOO, VC++ 2012 apps won't run on Windows XP. Blame Microsoft, or me for using Visual Studio.

Having a hard time getting this to work. I keep getting the missing dll error, even after I used the link you provided to install it. :/

I envy you, the balance of this game make it perfect for fun :)
add a flocking technique and you'll have a crack!

Fun game! The most fun is when you get the bounce power-up and just raking up kills as you herd all the zombies. I like the lighting effect and nice music.

27,300 score ^_^, pretty neat concept, well done!

Game booted up in a borderless window in a wonky resolution, but it was playable.

I just re-uploaded with a default resolution of 800 x 400. I tell you how to change it in the description, but hopefully that is a better default for people who don't read it.

Overall a good experience. It loses steam after awhile, but was fun while it lasted. Bouncing triple shot for the win!

I cant run the game, same problem as first comment.
If I can rate the graphics though, they are a bit dodgy, the colors are not picked very well but for compo I think its good.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 11:40am

I just can't help myself, wherever I see pixelart - I give 10/10))

Zombies keep coming, bullets keep falling, life keep fading)

Great job, thank you for this experience!

Game doesn't seem to get harder.

The 10 seconds charging is too slow. When you get the bounce weapon the game get more interesting since then you can finally do something while your weapon is charging.

Also for those who wonder you can pick up both triple and bounce and it is exactly as good as you would think.

On Arch Linux 64 bit I'm getting an "error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory".

"pacman -S sdl
warning: sdl-1.2.15-3 is up to date -- reinstalling"
I've worked with the unstable SDL libraries before, not too keen on installing them again :-S

I don't really like installing things, but I think was pretty neat! I also quite like your programmer art (I like anything
- have you seen mine?!) :D , so well done.

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.

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.
