Fire in Cage

##You can enter the portal to avoid monster chasing.

Simple shoot game. My first Haxe program, no time for sfx.

Good work for a first time with a new language. I'm not brave enough to try something new for LD.

I wish you thought at us, the poor guys with azerty keyboards :) . Too bad there is no sfx, the game has some good ideas and the graphics are very cool (and I liked the weird-color-blood-on-the-floor).

I really like the pixel art. The game could use some music/sounds though.

Hey a mini smash tv clone! Lacks sound and some polishment, so would be a base for a more developed good game. Well done.

OMG. I just opt-out some choices, like "Overall"....

Thanks for the game! Nice graphics and generally nice eye to the details! I couldn't use the portals though. :(

Nice and simple game. Would be better with some audio but I can understand the lack of time :)
A bit slow though. I may be better if it was faster.

Nice game and simple,but great idea. Well done (:

If I had made this I would've made the movement slightly faster and the bullets more damaging, you don't really have time to move out of the way or blast enough enemies. That does however make the portal more of a necessity, which is a nice addition.

Nice one! Like the portal idea but have not many chances to use it (Maybe it's just me being too sucked in shooting game...have killed some and be killed more often ;-P

I'm trying hard but I can only killed 27. The pixel images is pretty lovely. I fond of your avatar :) Maybe it is good to create some 'level up' or 'new equipments' to make it more easier and funny :) Anyway, really well down.

Very effective, simple shooter. Love the transport thing. Awesome!

Its a nice game, but I think more speed would give more fun. All enemies come to me and I couldn't run!! Art is nice

Ah you did better than I at using Haxe for the first time. Fun game!

Dec 10, 2014 @ 2:41pm

Not bad! It's solid and I like the warp doors idea. Wish it had more effects and weapons to things could stay more varied.

I like the character art. It would be interesting to see how the portal idea could be expanded.

Nice work! The character's movement and the portal warping could be a little faster, just to liven things up a bit. The art is great, though I might not have the main character point a gun directly left or right, since he fires in all directions.

Needs a bit of balancing and of course SFX.
You can make quick simple 8bit sounds with SFXR

Nice graphics but the game lacks feedback. A bit difficult to now when the player shoots and when an enemy is hit.

Good focus on the details. I liked the blood splatters, the enemy sprites are great. I liked the warping mechanic to avoid the monsters and also the way monsters spawns. Too bad there is no sound, it would have made the world a bit more lively.

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 ( 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.
