A game of "terror" made in the game maker! Congratulations on the expensive work, I did mine over there too ... and I know how hard it can be to do it.

I loved the art for this game! It was a little buggy. At least I think it was. I randomly disappeared and couldn't move after I managed to kill a few creatures. Nothing had made it to my body yet.
If this isn't a bug, perhaps make it clearer when you've failed?
Either way, I enjoy it. Thank you!

The game looks pretty good, but it left me somewhat confused.
I couldn't really tell if I made progress or not.
Is there an end to the waves of enemies or is it an endless game?
Some kind of indication of progress would improve the game in my opinion.

Nice Idea and it feels really cool controlling the main character.
The camera could be somehow nearer to the action, cause now it's more like a building game view and not creepy action.
I missed a game over screen.
The story behind the game is pretty cool.

Nice game! It was a little buggy for me (Sometimes the character disapeared). I didn't understood well how the gameplay works too.
I liked the Player sprites and the overrall graphics of the game. It was a good entry! Nice job ;)

Neat twist on "tower defense", with the jack-in-the-boxes as static defenses. I didn't see a bug-critter get into the room when I died, and I'm wondering if it was a code-bug that did it.

I appreciated the solid pixel art and sound effects, especially the breathing. Good feedback and interesting gameplay overall. I like to win, but I don't mind survival games either. Thanks for putting this together!
