by Blinked - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The year is 2043, and it is Christmas Eve. You are a survivor, and just want to enjoy the day tomorrow... But those damn Zombies just won't leave you alone. In order to protect your only Christmas tree, you must kill them all, before they ruin Christmas.

WASD - Move
Mouse - Aim
Left Mouse Button - Shoot
Hold Shift - Run

Search the map for powerups between zombie waves, they can increase your score, and give you new weapons.

Linux version may have issues, I have no way of testing it.

Great game. I love how you made it so you needed to search for weapons and power ups, that way the player won't just sit there and shoot. The movement and shooting felt very fluid. And i loved the music.

Simple yet sufficient. Smooth game-play and a catchy soundtrack.A little challenging at first but easy after you get the hang of it. Balanced.

It was a bit surprising to find out the zombies didn't care at all if I put myself in the way of there progress towards the tree, but then I figured it could actually make for a nice aspect of the mechanic -- shoot and block.

Funny how we both had the same idea for this theme. I made a twin stick shooter myself and it's fun to compare yours to mine.
Good job on the graphics and audio. I liked the overall feel of the game, and the execution.
It was hard to fit this kinda game into a theme, so can't say too much about that.

Other than that it was fun to play and to see it.

34.5k points ! I think it's a nice touch that you can go and get points on the edges of the map. The game is fun and completed.

The music is GREAT !

Well done! :) I suggest adding collision for the bullets with the tree :)

I really like the music, and the lighting was cool (particularly for finding my tree again). I felt like it could have been a bit more varied between the waves, but then I guess that's just the time constraint hitting you.

Loved the lighting effects and the mechanic of having to go out and scavenge to increase your power. Liked the emergent mechanic of how important prioritizing targets were. Overall really fun game. Great job!

Oh no! Christmas is ruined! I enjoyed this game, with the breaks in between waves to rush out and find things.

I liked the game if I though the three to be a fruit three!

I liked the lighting..
It feels like it needs something to prevent permanent running, otherwise there is not really a need for the two movement speeds...

Great idea, although it would have been better if there was some kind if collision on the tree so you need to move around.. now I can just stand still and shoot :P

Awesome! 5* in fun and overall!

My one beef is that the chaingun is underpowered. I felt like I was better off with the shotgun.

But the game is really fun yet simple. The holy grail of LD. Kudos!

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.
