Nice game. Although I encountered a bug where my keyboards inputs where not recognised from time to time (therefore I could not move for few seconds). Good job though !

The game was quick and fun. Only problem I found was that the bullets hit the wall if the player is against the top wall in the room!

It is very similar to my theme idea. A fine compo entry. I like the gfx.

Pretty solid. I don't like how your life just drains when you touch enemies though.

The controls are a bit weird, as they seems to not be recognised sometimes.
Your mapping isn't perfect either, some walls feel bizarre.
Good game tho

Kill kill kill. I like being able to move an shoot in a different direction.
The splash screen and graphics does the job pretty well.
The reload takes time which forces the player to dodge between the zombies, which is nice.

Zombies goes in straight line without avoiding the wall. It helped me more than once.
You may be interested in implementing path finding based on a potential field to make the game harder.

The game has potential; it would be interesting to add some variety in the enemies. Some could run at the player when too close. Or stand and jump, forcing the player to dodge.

The sound is a bit repetitive, but helps to established the ambience. FYI the game crashed in the second level.

This is a classical shoot them up, with multiple levels.

It would be nice to have the sources of your game. I only found `.class` in your archive.
Thanks for making this game!

Simple and fun game,but maybe to simple.

Dec 12, 2016 @ 9:12pm

Neat game! Got a crash/freeze after about 380 score? But otherwise it was really great!

Nice Game! Simple but pretty funny.

Dec 12, 2016 @ 9:32pm

This is game is pretty hard. But its also really charming. I like how the movement is locked to NSEW. Hmm Maybe the Zombies could be a bit slower so I could get away and catch my breath. Fun!

Pretty fun! Good job :)

Btw, After a while, I got teleported to another place (an island?), and after a while, shooting enemies, the game froze.

Fun to play! I like the particles effect. The letters on the menu screen could have colors with better contrast. Also, the pathfinding could be improved. Good work!

Nice fun little game! Needs bit working on sound volume balancing atleast for me some sounds were way too pronounced. Also had bug where last bullet of the clip never shot out, needed to load 2 bullets atleast to shoot any!

Cute zombie shooter, but feels a little limited. Definitely room to expand post-LD. Having to hold R while moving wasn't a pleasant experience for my hand.

Graphics, while basic, are pretty cute. The audio could use some TLC.

That was a very interesting game. took me a few runs to realize the bullets were going where my mouse was pointing :) I loved the pixel art, sound and music set the tone and I really liked the health over the enemies. Well Done!

Really good! love the pixel art! Also the UUGH from zombies. Gives so much gamefeel. Some zombies stuck on the place moving really slow trying to catch I don't know if it's a bug.
Good work!
