Basically a survival game against the clock.

Player starts with 10 HP, but looses 5 HP every 10 seconds and 7HP when bit by enemy. Killing an enemy spawn a healt pickup with 5HP.

Every 10 seconds the enemies also get faster and start spawning faster so eventually the player will be overrun.

So pick up the gun and try to survive.

Heh, why does he have two flashlights? :) And i like the "nyum" sound effect :) Gameplay is boring though

At first the game had a long story and different kinds of mechanics and finish goal. The Main character was supposed to be a robot, thats why he has 2 flashlights facing in different directions.
Post-compo I'm going to change the mouse pointer based on character health (0-20 red, 20-40 yellow, 40+ green) to help get some sense of current state, but ideally would like to keep the HUD to a minimum.

I don't like how the enemies can turn you. As soon as one got to me, it was game over! I made it 51 seconds, and it was pretty fun! :)

Nice idea, but I don't quite understand how it fit the theme... For the game itself, like the fact that it was dark.

Nice graphics effects. One note: I know, mouse rotated player, butt he player should face in the direction of motion automatically.

Nice graphics and lighting :D

Really really annoying sound though. Ahhhhh.

The sound was kind of broken (all staticy) except for the 'nom' sound, which was pretty funny. Neat game, regardless of the small flaws.

Atmosphere dark, spiders .. All that I love!

The visuals were great! Some enemies spawned on top of me, but otherwise good.

Thats beauty! Very well done atmosphere, the lighting is quite impressive.
Also, I like that the gameplay pushes to play fast.
Critics? When the spider is too close I can shoot them.

Nice work with the lighting!

Oh man, I've got arachnophobia and I don't like the dark... AHHHHH! The gameplay was alright and actually voicing the 'nom',death sound, etc. was pretty funny hah. There's a glitch though a spider seems to get stuck to you and you can't shoot it for some reason (hitbox too close?) so you just end up dying : (

Besides the "explosion" in the back (sfx) the sounds are great :D

Things that bothered me: the repetitive explosion sound, neither flash light facing forward, the inaccurate cross hair, and being unable to shoot a spider when they are close.
I do like that you destroy the spiders for time to benefit your own self preservation (rather the usual, pointless 'points'), and I was quite fond of the controls.

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.
