Really enjoyed this game. 3D top-down visuals were really well done, and the game is challenging in a rewarding way. Good stuff.

Pretty easy game. Felt like it was too simple - could have had extra weapons, different enemy types, powerups, or other mechanics.

Nice game, faster player movement would be nice though.

Not bad! The game would have felt a bit more lively if you moved faster I recon.

The best part was the intro sound.

Audio was very funny (and fitting!). Nice and simple challenge, though I would have liked more visible bullets.

My reaction time could be a bit slow due to sleep deprivation from the weekend. Also, you actually have arrow keys for movement as well (was about to complain that mouse + WASD is not really friendly to left handed ppl with laptop). Good graphics with nice sound effects though!

Ahhhh getting cornered when those blue punks are creaping up to you is pretty scary... ah ah ahhhh, cool intro sound :)

Kills: 42 (reminds me of Douglas Adams :) )
It is my best score from more than 10 games! Nice and very challenging game.

+1 For the start jingle. Good catch phrase too:
"1 man, 1 life, 1 weapon, 1 mission: survive"

I really liked the audio :) And the blood. My best try was around 85 points.

Simple gameplay, on the other hand not much innovation there.

It had a few skips when I played the web version. Its like it bogged down for a second then caught back up. Otherwise everything played pretty good.

Gameplay mechanics were pretty solid although the player was a bit slow.

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.
