One SCREAM! for the game

by t4u - Compo Entry

Screen kinda sounds like scream so that's how I came up with the idea.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kate is typical slasher-horror hottie. Help her survive home invasion until police arrives. Use your daddie's gun to kill baddies. As every teen girl you can use your mind blowing scream to kill them as well.

Controls:

WSAD - Movement
Mouse - Shooting
Spacebar - Scream of death


Reloading takes about 10 seconds after you shoot your last bullet.

It starts once you shoot your last bullet.

It is fun, but too simple. The fact to have two attacks (fire and scream) it is a nice feature, it could be more.

Graphics are nice, quite challenging but a nice take on the theme! :)

Confusing game. Not completely bad, but the gameplay is pretty simple.

I like the idea but it needs to be developed further. Gameplay isn't evry engaging and there are a few technical problems that prevent the game from being enjoyable...

Hmm, not bad, just needs to be bit more engaging and less repetitive, the game could perhaps get more difficult as the police is closing in. Perhaps different enemies inspired by various horror movies.

Sound hazard detected when using scream when there are many opponents on the screen. Quirky idea, but it's been used before, and it needs more polish! Good job, nevertheless.

Having two weapons is an interesting ploy, and the gameplay is mildly fun, if not a little difficult. I couldn't manage to win. Reloading takes WAY too long IMO! The theme is sexist, and though I know it's parodying a trope, it's just not appealing to me at all.

Nice little game. A bit on the simple side and I am not sure how to reload. Keep making games!

Fun little entry. Most of the time it didn't seem like you needed to shoot, however right when you were reloading, you needed bullets so bad.

I wish bullets were infinite and that screaming did not lock up your movement. The movement pattern of the enemies was chaotic at first, but then I was able to make sense of it enough that dodging them was relatively easy. I liked that the scream had a long cooldown and it would really save me sometimes when they would swarm me. I also liked how all the bodies would stay, hehe. However, I felt a bit jipped because I would be doing so well, saving my ammo for just the few guys that I couldn't avoid, and scream killing tons of guys multiple times, and then one time while the scream was still going, some guy walks up from bottom of screen, who wasn't even there a second ago, and kills me before I can move. Pretty hard game and I think it leaves me feeling a bit powerless in controlling the outcome despite feeling like I was doing pretty well. Graphics are either very abstract or very cheesy, however you want to look at it, haha. I personally prefer more shading and more colors.

I like how villains just run blindly forwards, probably because of these silly masks.
Fun twin-stick shooter with a good theme. :D

Neat game! Was really hard playing on a laptop touchpad, but that's probably just me. Really silly concept and the art really works well with it too.

Nice that you have implemented Newgrounds achievements.
Pretty much all areas could be improved upon given time.

I really liked your take on the theme. :P Also enjoyed using the scream attack. But part of the reason was that I couldn't get the bullets to shoot at all, so the scream was the only attack I had. :P In any case, this was a really funny game. :D

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.
