Nice game, I like the graphics. But how do I kill the zombies?

How many planks does the city need? It always shows 0%

30 Planks for 1 house 300 Planks 1 city also the tutorial states that you use the axe to kill the zombie which is controlled by mouse. Hope you enjoy

the axe/mouse mechanic is pretty nifty, but it's a tad awkward. Fun little game overall!

Pretty cool! the only thing is that you can basically just run in a circle to collect the wood. Other than that, the idea is awesome! - Kintinue

Neat game! The only thing I didn't like was the fact that the axe moved opposite of the mouse location. I would personally prefer it if the axe always faced the mouse.

Nice music, nice game. Control feel a bit weird. Good entry overall!

The game is interesting. I did encounter a situation where I totally drain my stamina and lost my ability to swing. I had to run into the zombies with my axe pointed at them.

It took me a minute to get the mouse right hah. Fun game though. Good job!

You had a very good instructions screen. I wasn't lost at all as to what I was doing, or how to do it, which is total props. :) Once I got into the game and started playing it, though, you mentioned that the axe swinging was a bit derpy, and I DO agree.
There needs to be a more solid axe swinging mechanic and you probably need better collision detection and perhaps some visual feedback on screen when your guy gets hit. I thought I was killing zombies, when in fact I was dying pretty pathetically. ;)
I was also challenged to get to 300 Wood, and I managed to do that really easily once I discovered how to avoid the zombies entirely. Then it became very easy to do so. :) With more balance, I think that this game could be really good!

pretty much fun. I liked it. I liked the music.
It was easy once you get the hang of it, I wish the game got harder by time.
also I think controlling the axe was a bit...ummm... confusing, I know you did that to add challenge to the game but I think the challnge should lay somewhere else.

good job I really enjoyed it

Probably the most amazing music I've heard so far. The game was okay though; the ax was unwieldy and difficult to use.

Fun to windmill that axe :P
Nice job.

I really enjoyed this one. The music is really nice and I like the concept. The graphics hurt my eyes(graphic designer), but it's still quite fun to smash up the zombies. The trees grow fast in this universe.

Need to be fast in axe rotation! xD

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.
