I can't get back into the buy area

Cool top down counter-strike with frogs(?) and lasers! The doors could be a lot less annoying they're not clearly doors and they're directional (maybe arrows on the floors). Repetitive sound effects can be irritating try lower less sharp tones or adjusting the pitch each time.

you have to kill every monster (at the beginning using a knife)

The controls are a little bit weird and I had a bug once where it wouldn't let me in the buy zone again (even though I killed all monsters). But otherwise interesting concept.

Fun game! I enjoyed it more than I expected. The controls are very strange, and the shotgun is a bit OP. Also the sounds seriously hurt my ears so I couldn't play with my headphones on

There´s a bug you getting trapped in the room before the shop. Cool game though!

Not bad (I like the shop), not innovative though.

Nice idea with the shop
But controls are weird. Why WASD moves it in local coorinates and not world?

Nice little game, but the controls are imho a bit weird.

Well done!

I really need the side shift to play normally. )

Nice idea! My main issue was with the controls - with top-down shooters like this, its really best if the move controls are _independent_ of the aim controls. Nice work!

I thought for a while the controls were sideways-WASD. It took a while to realise they were relative to the pointer. Innovative, but confusing.

I think there was a bug in the door opening/closing code -- I kept getting stuck in the room just before the shop :-(

An interesting interpretation of "entire game on one screen"!

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 (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.
