Orange is a nice color... :)

Graphics feel pretty under average, gameplay feels uninspired, and sfx gets annoying.

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 7, 2014 @ 9:14pm

@SnowyBirds thank you ;)
@Ult Pixel my dear , Pixel , gameplay is simple : Attack everything you see , is that harder for you ? Pixel Game 8Bit Sfx that's simple.

It wasn't obvious at first that space bar needed to be hit repeatedly/rapidly. Something to help make the player understand would be an attack animation-- that way you can see pressing space = punching.

@hd_ The ennemy life bar ;)

My score was 2960. I didn't know if there was any projectiles? My gun would fire but it wouldn't do any damage unless I was pressing space. I started getting pretty crazy with the giant zombies and then there was a big hammer?

Pretty

I was pretty confused when playing, felt like I just stood still and spammed spacebar, and the sound effects where super loud and not very pleasant.

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 12:46pm

@aeveis nice score ! ;) the character is a psychopath so yep the player must get crazy ;) and the big hammer is here for a little help.

@aslakhol Psychopathic sound effect ;)

Dec 9, 2014 @ 12:50pm

It's a great game, but needs some development. Either way, nice work!

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:29pm

@RetributionStudios thank you , that's why we add it to the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store , to be updated ;)

The web version doesn't seem to exist.

Skills641 says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:42pm

Can't download file

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 1:46pm

@JoshuaBurr , they are no Web Version , it's just a link to the PC (desktop version) XNA has no Web Version.

@Skills641 tell where you have a problem on the download website.

Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:16pm

game not opening.

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:17pm

@GameDevExtreme did you have .Net framwork 4.0 and XNA ?

maxyan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:34pm

Why did you add empty web link if the game has no web version at all?

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:38pm

@maxyan I was thinking that the empty web link was removed , now it's removed.

mauris says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:44pm

Nice little game) Little work on art and polishing will do the job.

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:45pm

Thank you @mauris ;)

LimeniusTeam says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:50pm

I think your link to Web is broken.

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:53pm

@LimeniusTeam they are no Web version of the game. Only PC/WinStore and WinPhone.

This game is simple, but it's still pretty unintuitive. What weapons are unlocked at the moment? What does the blue bar in the top-right corner mean? What is that hammer? These questions should be answered somewhere!
Footsteps are completely unrealistic.
Also, 0-1-2 is not good, 0 is on the opposite side. 1-2-3 is better.
I liked varying enemies' names though, you put a bit of originality there.

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 3:17pm

@Madball
1) weapons is unlocked following the number of the ennemy you killed.
2)blue bar is the ammo/fuel bar for the gun and chainsaw.
3)Pyschopath walk !
4)just for 0 you are mad ? it's not a dance game with 1-2-3 tcha tcha tcha !

please, check the game. It hangs when I open the exe :(

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 6:07pm

@indie4fun you must unzip it , and did you have .Net Framework 4.0 and XNA ?
@spirulence please remove the link , i didn't authorize you !

davient says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 1:04am

Lets see what's next. Oh a giant hammer!? Keep working on it :)

Kitch says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 3:11am

Good job for a 9 hour project. Hit all the high points, sound, death effects and animation.

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 11:32am

@davient @Kitch thank you guys :)

Dec 10, 2014 @ 5:31pm

Well, it's COOL for something that was made in 9 hours, 26 mins and 9 seconds. On the other hand, if you were working ~30 minutes more it could have been like 1000x better.
This is a JAM entry so people had like 62 hours more, minus sleep.
Sorry, but XNA and .net framework dependency isn't nice either. Dropbox is also a lot better to upload your game.

The graphics are "typical paint" and we have a black main character on a black background. About 1 minutes of work.

The audio was another weak point, you said it's 8bit, but 8bit doesn't mean you can't have a background music. Making a looped background music takes ~5 minutes.

Humor was fine, the names of the zombies made me laugh. X)

Kardfogú of Creative Sectors, out.

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 6:42pm

@Creative Sectors 1) the short time was for breaking our personal score.
2) Paint.Net
3) Psychopath character with black clothes because it's night. what else ?.
4) background music with a psychopath character is not fine of my view for this game.
and thanks :)

Dec 10, 2014 @ 9:40pm

The controls didnt feel like they did what you described :/

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 11:03pm

@taviandir left is left , right is right , space is space , 0,1,2 is 0,1,2 , what's wrong ?

The orange really makes the game stand out, which is nice. Still could've done a bit better. Overall a pretty fun game.

rjhelms says ...

The zombie names were great. This game has the right idea, but feels like a rush job - if you had taken the whole jam instead of just 9 hours I'm sure you'd have realized the potential a bit more.

LogicielAllan says ...
Dec 13, 2014 @ 8:40am

@Kuality Games thank you :)

@rjhelms it was a rush.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
