Got to level 5 and got a bit lost ;) Nice level generation! Good varied mazes. Its cool that you went with level-shifting but unfortunate that there's no reason to go back up to top level so that the level changes its layout (at least as far as I got.)

Player movement feels pretty awkward, sadly - the way you don't turn instantly feels off with WASD controls. No real difficulty curve either as far as I experienced? Maybe later on if I had stuck with it? But yeah time constraints I imagine :)

The zombie noises made me smile :D

Well done! :) I liked the zombie sounds! :D Didn't recognize the LD theme, though.

Thanks for the feedback. Think the issue with the controls is to do with how I handled the animation. As for going back to the surface, yeah I had a few ideas for that but ran out of time. I might try and add some improvements after the competition is over :).

The game really caught me for a couple of minutes before it got too repetitive. Nice job on the level generation! Did not understand where the theme was applied, though.

The actual game was fine, but things such as poor control or your character and huge maps kind of drew from the enjoyment a little. Otherwise, I was pretty ensconced in the experience until I just couldn't find a way out of level 7. Solid entry :)

It was a fun game, although the collision with enemies wasn't perfect.

I couldn't figure out how to go down the stairs nor how to talk to the character. I also couldn't walk down hitting some sort of invisible barrier. At least I almost broke my keyboard and mouse hitting all the possible keys and buttons.

The way you attack is difficult. Great game, seems that you did a lot of work.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
