Nice little game. I liked the number of available weapons, the extra effort on the graphics (particles, etc.) and the behavior of some of the zombies who keep moving while attacking the boxes (that's pretty stressful!).

Good game. Difficulty could have been ramped up more quickly. As it is, it feels a bit slow.

I liked it, particularly the graphics and music. Had some fun, tense moments. One random thing to note - I thought the zombies' shadows were horses that they were riding. I hadn't seen many horse zombies before, lol.

Nice game. It was a little easy for what I played, I reached wave 12 and no zombie got me, I felt like it wasn't exactly challenging. Nice particle effects and nice music beat between waves :)

Love the visuals! The lights, the particles and the kind of cute zombies.
fueelin is right though, the shadows do look a bit like small horses. :D Considering the only visible light sources are on top, the shadows should really go to the bottom. But other than that it's looking really nice.
I'd argue though that the prices in the shop are a little high. It takes so long to get enough money to buy something, which makes the gameplay rather monotonous.

Really cool everything. It starts out easy but then after a few waves I got more strategic like trying to time the reloads to zombie deaths. Well, except for the UZI, it was just straight dumpin' then :-)
But on my machine the game started to noticeably slow down after ~13 rounds or so, and then even crashed at wave 20 with "Fatal Memory Error, Out of Memory!". Guess something is not cleaning up properly?

Neat little zombie defense game. Having multiple weapons added a lot. Pretty fun overall.

The game is great. It is a bit slow at first but then improves :)

It is very slow to start, especially with the emphasis on repeating the gameplay since you can't buy new weapons once you've started. There wasn't a lot to do, the enemies all behaved the same way, and as a result the gameplay felt really flat. There was very little motivation to keep playing after the first couple of waves since the guns were only statistically different and everything felt the same.

The sounds were great, graphics and particles were great too. Loved the blood splatter effect the best.

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.
