Nice work. Got to wave 3, but quickly died :( That random ghost that appears in the dark was annoying! Sprites were good, as were the sounds. The use of the TV and lamp made gameplay interesting. Really wish the camera was zoomed out a bit more. It was hard to tell where things were. Hope to see more from you guys!

Nice game, but you should put the reload button on the right button of the mouse, using the mouse and the R button it´s not effective.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 6:38pm

Hahaha, Thanks for the comment, i'm not an artist but I did the most that I do an art,And the zoom of the camera was by purpose, but i will think in zoomed out a little.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 6:40pm

Thanks for the comment trodrigues! i will add for the right button, good sugestion!

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:02pm

I liked it, but def needs a different reload btn so I can comfortably run to the right and reload at the same time. The audio and visuals were pretty good. Good job.

Fun and challenging game. I went until wave 3 ! I would have loved a reloading animation (or just a loading bar), because we don't really know at first when we reload (apart sound, but it appear too early and is too short). Good game !

Nice work! I would have like some visual or audio feedback when you damage enemies but overall it was fun :)

I honestly felt the game was just too hard, mainly the lack of ammo even at 100 % accuracy rate, and the lack of movement speed. Also whats the point of Lamp or TV? should they distract enemies? help against the ghost, I didn't get it, I believe some minor tweaks of numbers could have made the game much more fun, good try never the less.

Nice shooter game. Like the idea of the game. The game play is smooth and fun. The graphics is good and the audio goes with it. Overall good game. Keep it up!

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:20pm

Thanks for the comment Yvanor =). Yeah, we have a problem with animation because another person make the player and i the gun, and the time over, but possibly i will add a reload bar.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:22pm

afinkyu_Pheaky thanks for the comment =). i will add for the right button, i didn't think of it at the time =(.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:24pm

nilead thanks for the comment =). We chose not to show it to be more difficult, but who knows ;).

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:31pm

indrkl thanks for the comment =). We know the problem with the amount of ammo, but i believe the problem is the amount of monsters, we did not have time to test 100%,And the TV and the lamp are to push the enemies and kill the ghosts =).

Nice game. I thought R was the appropriate choice for reload personally (it's intuitive and standard). When right up close to an enemy, my bullets seem to just go straight through them. It would also be nice to preempt reloading to switch weapon.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:33pm

kamranwali thanks for the comment =). Good thing you liked it, even though it's a long way from us ;).

Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:36pm

kernel panic thanks for the comment =). i will check this later, probably the bullet instance is too far ahead

It was a decent game but a bit too zoomed in. The room seemed massive if you are a normal sized person. Waves seemed a bit too long and reloading for some of the weapons took way too long. All in all, a decent game.

Good little game, nice idea. Reloading was awkward, took a long time and hard to tell when it was done while dodging monsters... Good idea with the TV & light.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:16pm

GoofStudios thanks for the comment =). The problem with art is that I'm not an artist, I tried to imagine what it would be like, I did not have the time to redo and it ended up like this =(.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:17pm

manax thanks for the comment =). i will add later a reloading bar ;).

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:23pm

Good one. I liked the art which ws kind of coherent and cute. Same for the audio and nice idea to use toy guns as weapons.
It was too hard for my taste, I didn't get very far and would have wished for an easy mode.
The flashes are very cool and add to the mood.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:32pm

stupidmindlessf thanks for the comment =). thanks for all ;), yeah, probably will have a easy mode.

Nice game, but the reload system is not effective, after the ammo end, the reload could be better if is automatic

Dec 15, 2016 @ 9:29pm

GuiGsthanks for the comment =). the reload system is part of the gameplay.

nice game

Good job on this game ! I achieve wave 3, I did not understand how unlock new weapons...
The gameplay with the lamp and the TV is very interesting !
Keep creating games !

Very spooky indeed. The game plays very nice and the controls are good. The art is on point, and the music is pretty good, if maybe a bit repetitive since the loop is so short. Cool stuff!

Dec 18, 2016 @ 1:34pm

Thanks Ednei!

Dec 18, 2016 @ 1:36pm

Darenn, you get in the chest.

Dec 18, 2016 @ 1:38pm

neon, thanks for the feedback!

Fun game, though not a very new idea

Dec 18, 2016 @ 2:59pm

Thanks for the feedback Soundless_dev!

Nice game, the mood is great. I think it lacks some feedback when you hit a monster.
Besides that a good entry overall :)

I felt it was too easy to get cornered, especially when trying to get ammo from the crate, but it a fun game none the less.

Nice graphics, nice lightning, good idea with the lamp & tv!

I would appreciate somej kind of easy-to-hard levels so I can see my progress.

Thanks for sharing, had some fun time!

Nice diversity of monsters and weapons. I love the little details like the ghost apparition. I made it to wave 3

Pretty enjoyable game, nice graphics, good sound, and solid controls, is there a way to get new weapons though?

Ellian says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 5:36pm

Nice work!
The random ghost that appears on the right side of the room is really annoying, but using the lamp and TV to force the player to move around the room is smart. Overall, good job!

Feels quite unbalanced, and very difficult. I got pushed into the corner behind the chest by the monsters and could do nothing but die :(

SleepyStudios says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 5:55pm

Nicely designed overall. I liked the ghost blocking the chest and the lamp mechanics. Could do with some more combat feedback like screen shake etc.

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:07pm

fufi, probably i will add latet =)

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:08pm

saurterrs Thanks ;)

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:08pm

thedashdude, yeah, i have a little problem with this, but i will fix it =)

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:09pm

StaNov, we are working in this balance =).

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:10pm

Qui, thanks for the comment. =)

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:10pm

nick.bota, just pick in the chest.

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:11pm

Ellian, thanks for the feedback!

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:12pm

Noah Ratcliff, i will fix it =)

Dec 18, 2016 @ 6:12pm

SleepyStudios, i will think in this =)

thanks akai_0okami!

Dec 18, 2016 @ 7:33pm

Hey, I liked your game it was actually fun.
You can improve the audio and the graphics at some point but overall not bad!
And please go and try out my game!

Nice game. May be too large player on screen.

Palarus says ...
Dec 20, 2016 @ 5:16pm

Good work! It's pretty funny to play! Also the art it's quiet good. I feel that some animations would make a great favor to the game. I like the use of elements of the room and the various weapons! Good work.

Very good survival and hard. There is some thing that I dont like - when zombies fit closely, nothing can be done, no mather how try

jramell says ...
Dec 30, 2016 @ 4:42am

I liked the ambiance, but it could use better sound effects and might benefit from faster movement.

Mood was spot on, although the music got a bit repetitive.

Good variety of weapons and enemies, as well as things in the world to help you out.

That giant Ghost though :(
