Hair Cop

by PixelRebirth - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are a cop with very good hair who is tasked to defuse various bombs. Terrorists guard the explosives and may arm them remotely. Beware, if you don't pick up the schematics you will have to flip a coin to decide which wire to cut.

Xbox 360 Controller recommended.

Keyboard controls:

Press down near the bomb to disarm. Left or right to choose a wire to cut.

Wow, really exciting gameplay :D Love the NES style, even tough I didn't liked how it was blurry...

Thanks for playing! It shouldnt be blurry actually, but it kinda depends on the browser I guess. Use Chrome or any Chromium-based browser for best experience.

It looks good, it play well ! Hair Cop is a really cool game as it is in fact. Plus, and that a real plus, the graphics are near awesome. Overall, enjoyed it, even may consider replay.

I loved the audio, graphics and gameplay. Really nice style and atmosphere! Embarrassingly, I couldn't work out how to get past the second level but I'm sure that's my problem not yours...

Almost perfect game, I'd suggest to show SPACE instead of A/B when no gamepad is found, otherwise I get frustrated...

80's Hair Cop + NES Graphics. What an excellent throwback! Could've used a soundtrack.

I love the NES style graphics and the game is very fun. My only issue is that I can't use my xbox 360 controller, don't not why but it's not working.

I'd like to see a longer version of this game.

Love the 8-bit inspired graphics, but I don't see anything specific to the NES there. This could be reproduced on just about any 8-bit computer.

Good luck!

Great art style and concept. The sound effects aren't bad... they serve their purpose, but could have been designed a bit better. The bad guys get alerted too easily - they should have to have a line of sight on you. The second level was unbeatable for me, couldn't figure out how to reach the lower platform without hitting the spikes. Definitely needs a super cheesey '80s style chiptune soundtrack to complete the atmosphere. Not a bad interpretation of the theme. Tight controls (with the exception of that falling mechanic which is what I assume kept me from beating level 2).

Awesome gameplay. Really hard, but enjoyable :D

@Dooleus You need to jump in order to be able to move while falling and not just drop down. And you're right about the chiptune soundtrack!

Nice job, I enjoyed it. Cool old-school graphics. Somethings very satisfying about kicking in the doors.

Hair Cop is the shiiiiit, it reminded me that I needed to watch Axe Cop. Great job!

really nice game -- spikes -- why does there always have to be spikes

Very nicely executed! The plaforming has a very good feel to it and I like the twist with the avoidable coin flip.

this is an awesome job for just 2 days.
One of our best rating is for you.
Well done :)

Is there a reason for enemies bullets to go through the walls and mine not? A little unfair. Also I didn't like the falling mechanics. Anyway, I must say this game has a very nice style and graphics.

Sep 3, 2013 @ 7:22pm

Omg so AWESOME. NES+oldschool difficulty and a mel gibson wannabe. This was fantastic! Top marks, seriously!

Very nice game. Looks and feels pretty polished. The only negative is that the controls sometimes don't recognize jumps.

I loved this. At the beginning I felt it was a bit on the hard side, but once I got used to it, it all worked very well. Loved the NES-style graphics (it seriously looks like a retail title from the eighties, impressive work!). The sound effects fit, all it lacks is a heroic soundtrack.

I'm a fan, hats off! :)

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.
