10 Second Shooter

by mcbeckjr - 48 Hour Compo Entry

WASD scrolls through menu.
E to select, Q to return to main menu from info pages.
WASD/Arrow Keys control movement of character.
Space to shoot.
Read the rules for more info.

Set in a retro 80's class reunion.

*Known Bugs*
-Sometimes the zombies will not die when shot. Restarting the game should fix that issue. It seems to be caused by pressing the spacebar before any zombies spawn.

You should put a basic animation, and some sound effect beside our shot =D

Thanks! :D Animation is my next step with this, I didn't have time to add it during the competition.

Link works. I like the art and music. The art is simple but effective.

I liked the music, it kept the intensity up. My high score is 1632.2, I think that's pretty good.

My best is 1773, it gets tough at the higher levels!

Not bad! While the game doesn't match the theme very well, it's fun.

Game isn't loading for me

I didn't have time to make a loading screen, so while it may seem like it's not loading it really is.

Pressing space also scrolled the window, which made the game a bit hard.. =)

I really liked the background music and the sounds. Controls were smooth. I felt i died due to my mistakes and not those of the game.

Pretty good game. The controls were very smooth, and the music was pretty suitable for the game. My best is 1883 or so. Also, you can't go wrong for the "pew pew pew" sounds!

I liked the music, but gameplay was a little lacking. Overall I think you did well.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 6:11pm

Did you make the music?
Overall it needs more weapons and enemies.

mcbeckjr says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 6:13pm

I made the music using Garageband on my Mac, and the game using Flash CS6 on my PC

It's simple, but a lot of fun. Great work, man. The shooting is very satisfying.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 11:16am

Simple but fun! Not a big fan of the music though

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 ( 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.
