by Xinelu - Jam Entry

This is a short but hard game!

I really hope you guys enjoy it !! =D


NY City, 1988

The task forces strike the Projects, building by building.
And at the last apartment of the eighty floor, the officers found a little girl with a briefcase full of evidences.
While she refuses to cooperate, you found your way to the one-room apartment where she's being held.

Nice little top down shooter. Are the enemies supposed to fight back? Because none of them did anything to attack me, but then again i sniped them all from far away!

I love this style of game. Not sure if I was supposed to lose somehow ...

I decided to run around enemies and they started shooting. Fireworks! They saw me through the walls and kept shooting but didn't kill "hostage". Can't say that I disliked this game. It's good. Does the absence of source code ok? Probably you should add it to follow the rules.

Ran into a few issues where my shot would knock me out of the house, and wasn't exactly sure how I was meant to get through the crates without glitching it. Music/sound is great.

Was fun sniping people with silenced gun, just wish it was longer. I thought the story was interesting as well.

I definitely tried to shoot behind the wall on the bottom, got thrown forward and lit up real good. Then I saved the lady. I felt like a total badass rolling up on all those ninjas and blasting them. This one was fun, I hope more rooms appear for amelia in the future.

That's a ballsy take on the theme, good production, great job

You got that 80's action flick vibe down :)

It's satisfying killing the enemies in one hit. I like the gritty art style

My favourite thing about the game: shooting drops empty shells. It's all in the details. Also, reminds me of hotline miami, which I loved.

As mentioned previously, enemy AI could be a little better.

Nice entry nonetheless!

I like this type of game, that's cool. With your first screenshot I though it was a creepy and nightmare game, but it was kinda cool :)

Dec 12, 2016 @ 3:59pm

Short, but fun. The sound fx for the gun + this animations was perfect. Felt totally like sam fisher :-P

Dec 12, 2016 @ 6:39pm

In the vent area you can get knocked out because the gun has collision. Other than that, I found it fun to play!

Hey intwresting history and ambient

Great job- this was fun- although the enemies field of view was not much of a challenge. I had to get up pretty close before they would shoot at me. Once you lose you have to refresh to replay- a restart button would be nice. overall it was a fun game- keep up the good work!

Dec 12, 2016 @ 7:19pm

I like the simple combat and stealth aspects a lot and it help this game be more than just a test of skill but I feel like this game would be way better with more than one room so I feel like the theme hindered you more than aided you. of course there is only so much you can do in 48 hrs and the game was still satisfying to play :D

Soundless_dev says ...
Dec 12, 2016 @ 7:27pm

Seems a little bit easy, I just walked around and shot everyone as they watched and seemed pretty okay with it.

Nice top down shooter, its remind me hotline miami :D

Graphics are great!

Loyance says ...
Dec 13, 2016 @ 12:24am

This is a nice game. Right after the intro (which is done very well) the game reminded me of Hotline Miami!

Tbh, I found the title picture kind of "clickbaity", as I expected more of the horror-like game. Still, it's pretty good!

Megalink says ...
Dec 13, 2016 @ 1:36am

Was kind of short, also the enemy AI needs some improvement. However, the story is pretty great! Good job. :)

Nice sound + graphic,
Gameplay was fun left me wanting more here. Got stuck outside the level but 'r' reset saved it

Pretty fun top down shooter. Found out I could jump through walls while shooting. Would have been nice if the Ai wondered but it was fun!

wujood says ...

Cursor fitted perfectly. Made the game 20% better!

Logicon says ...
Dec 13, 2016 @ 4:03am

Nice game, I never seemed to get close enough to enemies for them to fight back. The items on the wall that were brightly colored made me think I could interact with them.

Reminded me of an old action movie.

Dec 13, 2016 @ 5:01am

Very hard game to play. Please make it a little easier.

Tkachov says ...

A very short and cheap Hotlime Miami clone. I mean, there were TBS before HM, but this just seems to be very similar.

Yet, the enemies just kept standing while I'm killing them from the distance one by one, though obviously a guy who sees how another one dies would start doing something. Another strange thing I've noticed is that the game gets more laggy in the end (may be just a minor web-version glitch).

I like top down shooters, but felt it was easy since the AI field of vision was very limited.

Darenn says ...
Dec 13, 2016 @ 10:03am

Yeah it's a very short game. I like the graphics and it's very nice for a game made in 24h. But I don't understand why it is hard ? I killed all the guys without dying once because they don't seem to react to what we do. But i you had more time, i think you could have done a very good game ! I hope to see more ;) Keep creating games !

Good audio and setting. A little too short for me, it would be nice to have some balance between point and click and instant death.

jusw85 says ...
Dec 13, 2016 @ 1:01pm

Rather than thinking that the game was too easy, I just imagined I was playing a top down Splinter Cell type game, I crept around all the boxes trying to stealth the enemy, feels more fun that way :)

Amelia is a nice girl and i wanted to save her. But then i went out of map

piller.yann says ...
Dec 13, 2016 @ 6:30pm

With the sound of the gun, killing enemies is satisfying.

Dec 13, 2016 @ 7:39pm

Way to easy, Would have been cool to have the guards moving around or at least rotating, but i enjoyed it none the less. I saved the chick.

Fun), but strange)

Dec 13, 2016 @ 11:09pm

I was having fun, quite short game! ;) I had a problem when suddently I was moved out of the walls. Had to restart. Didn't happened again. I didn't know what i had to do, I tried to shoot her, is that the way to finish the game?

Fuad says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 12:45am

Nice and satisfying sound and reminds of hotline miami. :)

I wish guards can move and give some challenge but I understand that ask about AI in 3 days time is too much.

I don't understand why this game is offensive?

SoulBound says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 4:21am

Short but fun! I had a blast getting the guards attention and trying my best to dodge bullets (I mostly failed).

Cool mood game and great sound effects. Definitely a good vibe. Wish you actually had to escape the 70 floor building floor by floor!

Good game! The theme and the music really sets it apart, the mechanics are very sharp and the graphics are really enjoyable, would've loved to see some more levels though.

Palarus says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 5:08pm

I snipe all the enemies. Interesting story after all.

Dec 14, 2016 @ 6:09pm

Has a lot of potential, and had some nice little features like the gun being pointed up while walking in the tight corridor, but it really would have benefited from a little more content. The game was fun overall; nicely done.

Mieeh says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 9:13pm

My view range is longer than the view range of my enemies which makes this games super easy. Maybe improving the AI would make this game better, great start!

CoderDozer says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 4:12pm

Cool game, wish it was a bit longer.

Ednei says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 3:45am

very cool! Simple control, good graphics!

Nice job!

terryg says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 4:16am

Nicely done. I was able to get to the end. Good take on the theme.

JesseyCool says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 9:34am

Nice top down view

Dec 16, 2016 @ 7:27pm

The enemies are so stupid! :)
But on the whole game fun

Gyfis says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 7:27pm

The enemies were like frozen and didn't shoot or anything. I would like to have the game much longer as in the current state it is just a matter of 2 minutes. However, pretty smooth with nice graphics. Good job

YOU'LL ALWAYS BE PERFECT YOU'LL ALWAYS BE BEAUTIFUL OUR HEARTS WILL NEVER FORGET YOU
But seriously, pretty good game, but the enemies were a little too oblivious for my taste.

dunin says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 10:57am

It is hard and there are some bugs (no more bullet from my gun, go through the crates)
but once you know exploit crate bug, it is more easy to master!

Split82 says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 1:05pm

Short, but fun. Good job!

Minato4th says ...
Dec 27, 2016 @ 12:00pm

Very well, its like "Die Hard" =) Game play is good and you must always think what to do next, well done!

Cool little game.

Straight to the point with great mood to it.

Enemy ai aim at the character even if he is behind walls but that's ok :)

Jan 20, 2017 @ 7:33pm

Very neat little game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/1nLjn2-nhmQ
