Zombie Mall

by DaveSilver - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My game is pretty simple, you play as a guy who is trying to escape a mall infested with zombies. If you get hit once you die. The other way that I'm adhering to the theme though is that you can only do one thing at a time. You can run and fire, you can't reload while moving. Not much ore to it than the. Good luck, and enjoy.

The aiming in this game is... difficult to get used to. It's also a bit too bright for the gameplay and concept - a bright look works for action-y zombie games, but not one that plays more like a horror game. Similarly, I'd like to see death animations and some kind of ambient sound - it doesn't have to be music, maybe just a low drone. There's potential for a good horror game in here if you expand it.

Cool game! Needs animations though. And the movement feels a little spongy.. maybe reduce the acceleration/deceleration time.

I don't know why, but I like the fact that you have to load the gun before you can fire the first time.

Overall it's nice, definitely keep working on it if you still want to.

It's hard as nails, but I like that!
My issues however, are the same as already commented, but there is potential for a fun game. If you decide to continue developing this, try something with lighting and shadows(unlit hallways, lightning/thunder outside, flashlights, torches), I believe that would make a huge difference already.

Having to reload one bullet at a time is a nice touch, makes it a lot more dramatic. Was being able to aim only while standing still by design? Overall a fun game, good job!

I got to unlock the security but never made it outside, ha ha ha. Fun game! The one-touch-death thing makes it hard though.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
