Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Don't' Let The Zombies Escape

by Luis_Antonio327 - Jam Entry

WARNING: the final version of the game was very bugged and I couldn't solve anything in time, sorry guys :/ (the resolution is one of these problems)

The game is about a government scientist and he was experimenting with humans to find a cure for a disease, but when it was massively tested on a machine, the remedy began to turn everyone into zombies and the scientist must stop with a pistol and a Grenade at the end of the room (does it make sense? No but ok).

Controls

Movement: WASD
Shoot: J
throw grenade: K (the only grenade is in the end of the room)

(sorry about my english, i used a little of google translator XD)

It seems that you cannot die and the granade didn't work. Also the resolution to play is very low. It was a good idea tho. Keep improving!

Gameplay was OK, except pressing K didn't seem to throw any grenades. Not that I needed them--it seemed a winning but fairly boring strategy was: stay in the upper left corner and keep shooting. A few minutes later and you're still doing that...seems it would go on forever...

Second playthrough I got the grenade near the door, but couldn't seem to throw it. After that, my health wouldn't go down, and actually I went through the door on the bottom of the room, into a white area. I could go in or out and would blink as if taking damage but my health was stuck at 2/4. More zombies kept coming, game didn't seem to end.

You didn't put Mood as a category but, in my opinion, that's maybe the game's strongest aspect. The music and lighting and graphics combined well. Also I thought your description was funny :)

I also discovered I could walk up to the top of the top wall and the zombies would follow me there. Seems fairly buggy and also doesn't seem to fit the title--the zombies always go after you, so they never escape...

Simple plot, remember a lot of old games. There are a few bugs. You can pickup the granade, but there's no way to throw it.

Good art btw. :D

Fun game but wondered why the bullets take longer to shoot. Still, had fun with it! Nice implementation of the idea.
