The Labyrinth Room

by savinvadim1312 - Compo Entry

Hi everyone, Here i am with my first Ludum Dare. Too exhausted to make a good description, anyway here it is!

You are the victim of a human experiment! You've been placed in a small room with only one exit. This exit is quite challenging because it is through a Labyrinth. The Labyrinth is full of monsters and it is said that nobody has ever returned from there, so be careful. Once you've entered the Labyrinth you have 2 options: find the key and after that find The Exit Door or get back to your room where is safe and more importantly in your room there are weapons for sale and moreover you can regenerate your health here. The point is that the Doors between your Room and the Labyrinth will not be opened forever, you have a timer that shows after how many second the Doors will be closed. Don't stay too long in the Labyrinth, it's quite dangerous and once the Doors are closed you will be trapped in the Labyrinth and you will have only one solution: Find the Key and after that find the Exit Doors. You might not succeed without any regeneration and weapons, so get back to your room until The Doors are closed.

The point of the Game: Get out of This Labyrinth
How? -> Find the exit Doors and open them
How? -> Find the Key for the doors
How? -> By killing enemy Spawners

hmm, Challenge accepted! huh

This is my first LD and i'm quite excited about it. Maybe this is not what i planned from the begining but i'm pretty happy with what it turned out!

I like the concept. It feels like a mix of gta and diablo somehow. After a while I just started running from those monsters (Maybe avoid that somehow).
The music is very repetetive and (SORRY) gets a little bit annoying. But it still fits the theme of your game.

Pretty cool game! I loved the top-down view and the fast-paced action which reminded me of Hotline Miami. The game is pretty easy once you get the gun... Somehow my fists were more accurate than the chainsaw :) My only real complaint is the main music composed of just a loop of 8-9 notes... The loop is too short and the sound gets on your nerves, or drives you crazy to the extent that you become a zombie... Wait....... :)

Great job overall!

not too bad, but the constantly running back and forth to the center got frustrating. though you did add more time each time, the music really got horrible after awhile. i made the mistake of short music loops too before, try and go for 30sec loops bare min before you loop. it will sound alot better then.

I punched many spiders and made a lot of money. Gotta agree that the music is really annoying.

Not bad, but sounds and graphics must be a bit better

Clean top-down shooter, but change this annoying music. Well done ++

The game did make we want to see what was at the end of the Labyrinth. I feel like the timer should reset when you get back to the entrance, otherwise you just have to wait it out before you open the door again.

I'm sorry to say it, but the music was physically painful. Very short loop with high dissonance is not a good combination.

Got a nice Gauntlet-vibe from this. Controls work alright, although I had some trouble figuring out how far do my fists reach.

The camera is maybe zoomed a bit too close and the music is quite unnerving, to the point of madness :D

Good game, but graphics and sound need to be upgraded.

I liked it a lot! Combat feels really clunky but it had a cool retro vibe and was still pretty fun.

Graphics could be improved but the concept is great :) The sound is a little repetitive but solid entry! - Joey

A fun top-down shooter! The gameplay is definitely the strong point of this game, graphics are pretty interesting for a compo game, the controls are great, as other people said the music can get on your nerves but it's no biggie. All the things considered the game is great, especially for a first entry, and it's fun to play which is the most important part, great job!
