Pretty neat. I quite enjoyed taking really precise sniping shots at a zombie behind a person. Quite satisfying to make the shot.

Watching those little dudes flail about while crossing that field it was hard not to want to shoot them. I love the art style, It's simple and effective. The game concept is great! Awesome Game, Great Work!

Good game.
I know low ammo is kind of part of the genre, but I would have loved some more bullets. :) Shooting cubes is fun.

Really cool game. I really liked the art-style and premise. Gameplay was simple and fun with easy controls. Great Job! I would definitely like to see this fleshed out more.

Love the low poly. Felt super statisfying making those long range shots too. I really enjoyed this, great job.

Solid little game, plays well and looks good. I noticed some of the zombies getting stuck facing each other, unable to move, it was hilarious, if that was a bug, keep it XD

Aah. Cool graphics. Shadows changes everything. I like it.

HA! I really like how you have to conserve ammo to the point that you're making choices about who to save. Making quick prioritization decisions made it really compelling. Nice work!!! You should be proud :)

Nice defense shooter game with a nice art style. The only two things i have to complain:
1) There`s no music! Shooting zombies with no music is only half the fun! ;)
2) Somewhat more serious: It happened quite often that i lost people because i couldn`t see them in time. This happens at the sides of the screen.

Great game, though lacks some music.
Also sometimes survivors get stuck near the shelter.
Anyway, awesome :)

Dec 9, 2014 @ 9:51pm

Awesome graphics and gameplay. Good fun!

Dec 9, 2014 @ 10:47pm

Loved this one. Cool polished graphics, fun and simple gameplay. Needs some work on aim (or I need some work on mouse control =D).

For a while I thought the zombies were no match for my drawing tablet. I was finally overcome in the last seconds of day 7 by those sneaky ones on the edge of the screen.

Great art style, very challenging as the zombies tend to follow the same path behind the survivors!

nice graphics and environment!

It would be better if you could highlight the zombie that the player is currently aiming at. Since the player have limited ammo, I always had a feeling 'whether its gonna hit or miss'.

Simple fun. Quick pick up play. Clean lego style visuals :)
Just wish I could not get zero even when I save someone :(
Maybe If I wasn't so horrible :)
Going to try another round or 2!

Very cool graphics! Not much sound though
I thing the amount of ammo is a bit too low
But the game overall looks and plays goon enough!

I love the zombie ai! "Where is my human go! Oh, there is an other one".

Very well done!

I liked that the zombies had independent behaviour! i found the aiming a bit inconsistent, but it's hard to explain why.

Dec 11, 2014 @ 8:17am

Great entry! Time pressing creates good challenge :)

Cool. The only problem I had was that people trying to get rescued would run in front of my gun and get shot.

Ahh, another good day! Haha. It's kinda hard to not kill people. I really tried in the beginning but after I didn't care anymore...for the greater good ^^ Different weapons would be nice, like missiles to shoot over the people behind the zombies. Other than that good job :)

Dec 22, 2014 @ 1:06pm

It was satisfying to hit the zombies, and I liked the use of the theme. It all fitted together nicely as an idea

Very nice! The art style reminds me of Minecraft. :3 It's kind of impossible to shoot at zombie that's chasing a person toward you. But aside from that, this was really fun!
