Smash TZ

by cinderous - Jam Entry

Inspired by Smash TV & Boxhead, this is a top down survival shooter. Last as long as you can in a room being flooded with zombies grabbing power ups when you can. This is my first ever game jam entry and I'm pretty proud of it :)

It was a bit hard for me, but it was implemented cool! I liked the laser type bullet! Sound and grapsh are okay too! Good job! Theme 5+

Game is a bit too hard, and not much originality. But you did a good job!

I like the shooting effect. First it was a bit hard to understand the zombies were dead cause they only stop moving. Anyways, cool game! :D

Thanks for the comments! I tweaked it a bit to give the gun a bit more stopping power ;)

Not sure what was up with the animations... I reuploaded the same unity file, zombies should actually flop over when they die now and not slide around. :P

While not the most beautiful game in the bunch, this was was suprisingly fun! :) Great idea with the auto-fire: made playing on a touchpad quite bearable. The updgrade system does it's job well - it felt really rewarding when my gun got to the "super-fast-shooting" level :) Managed to get 5240 points.

Solid gameplay but graphically a bit bland.
Also I think you could add more interesting decisions by adding a cooldown or some other form of limitation because as it is the player will hold down the mouse button continually.

Always love me a crimsonland style game ^_^

The game started suuuuper slow but once the enemies started coming at a good rate I has a great time dodging around and mowing lines of enemies down! Just would have loved the difficulty curve to have ramped aup a lot faster personally.

The sounds and graphics are good, maybe have the monsters a different colour to the floor though as they kinda blend in too much.

Controls are nice and responsive and the gun feels good to shoot.

I liked that the powerup/health/rate pickup spawned out of the monsters instead of randomly since it forces you to go into an area where there are a lot of enemies (or find a way around them).

Lovely little game :)

Yay another zombie game! :P

Awesome work, controls felts tight and while simple, the combat felt rewarding.

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.
