City of Death? That's a title that I like! I liked the style of your game. The sprites need some polishing, but damn, how did you manage to make the game so immersive? Then noise in the screen can be a little bit too much, but I see what you were trying to do. To be honest, it's one of my favorite games so far. Good work!

This is cool! I've just started going through the games, but this is probably the best thing I've played so far :) Feels genuinely tense.

Thank you, Alvarop. I started the project programming and no time to work the design better. I freaked out, hahaha, time was to short. I'm glad you liked it, but ... you got the helicopter? :) hahaha!
PS.: sorry bad english :p

Can't say that most people would want to create an account just to try the game on the web. Would have liked a description as well... Aesthetics are great.

Thanks Infin8, I update the descriotion. I did not know you needed an account to play on that website. I'll try to fix it.

I really like this game. The noise / film grain when you're running is a nice touch, along with the drum loop fading in. The mood is excellent. I just wish I could understand what he's saying every time I walk into a shadow.

Definitely one of my favorites so far.

Sweet game, man! Love the atmosphere you've created, and it manages to really give you that 'Oh shit zombies are chasing me!' feeling. Excellent!

Fun and very tense! It was a bit hard for me :P I think with a little bit of polish it could be really great!

Dec 17, 2013 @ 6:59pm

WOW! Really good! Gameplay works well, nice graphics, sounds and atmosphere!

Dec 17, 2013 @ 8:16pm

Weirdly reminded me of the top down bits from super probotector. I liked this, was pretty fun.

I liked your game, its funny and original, but the noise screen effect is too strong in my opinion

Nice! I like the stealth mechanic. The audio & atmosphere were pretty good as well. Of course maybe the zombies wouldn't detect this guy so easily if he stopped talking for half a minute, haha.

Nice film grain and great 80's apocalyptic movie aesthetic! It was surprisingly stressful when you can tell where you need to go but there's zombies everywhere between you and your target. Nice work!

Nice little game, I liked the visual effect making everything all blurry with retro-noise when the character runs too much. Solid work for a 48h compo!

Very retro, loved the loading screen! a bit too difficult, but great work for 48 hours!

I like the old-school GTA aesthetic mixed with the zombie gameplay. It also has a killer tone and mood that I enjoyed.

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.
