Cool game, sets a good mood all around!
I kinda got stuck at the title screen for some time, the instructions were a bit unclear to execute.

This is weirdly scary haha. the sounds caught me off guard. The scrolling is a bit hard if you're not full screen

Great entry, a bit difficult to understand at first, but the sounds and graphics really are scary. Good work.

Hey, that was a pretty good game! It gave me a jump or two!

Some things were a bit confusing. For example, in the beginning, I spent a good time trying to left click on the phone (you have to right click it to begin the game).

Also, there is a red marker on the top left that, maybe, is the number of aliens left to kill? But it was not clear at all if it was that, or your life, or what.

I think the intensity of the attacks needed to increase a bit near the end of the game.

But you get a 5 star for mood from me!

Thanks for the game!

I almost quit playing this... How do you answer the Phone? Controls?

Great black & white art. Great Sound. Great mood Reminds me of the film "Signs".
I like how you must always be on guard. Had a hard time aiming.

Fits the theme very well.

Great job!

Great game! The only disadvantage of this camera control

Dec 12, 2016 @ 1:46pm

The viewport was really hard to control but I feel that kinda added to the stress, well done!

Hey man, about my game not working on web version, i fixed now, i just accidentaly left on "draft mode" instead of "public mode" so only i could play the game, so really sorry about it!

I will test your game later when i got more time and vote / comment here again, if you can test my web link again, i will be appreciated! ;]

That was actually scary. I liked how the viewport required concentration to move and there wasn't a fast way to turn around.

Oks i am back to test it now!

Well, this is really a scary game there! really like this one, but i thought the controls for move the camera kinda slow sometimes, so sometimes coudn't react that quick because of that.

But the terror and mood in this game is really great and reqire a lot of reflexes there, good job!

I really enjoyed this game. Was stuck at the start for some time but I got it. I wish it was full screen and the moving controls were handled better. Other than that it did a great job at setting the mood and engaging me!

Very scary game that controls mood. Great job!

Nice. Graphics look fine, game really keeps you in a "danger" mode for five minutes (that loud alien sound might be the one which does the most), but it gets a little bit too predictable closer to the end of the game.

I think this could get better if ammo is added (meaning you have to shoot more precisely) or reloading animation ("OMG reload faster he is right here!1!").

Also, I thought it there would be a huge amount of aliens closer to the end, but I my case I shot a small bunch of them, then waited for 20 more seconds and it just ended with "Congratulations".
