Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Zombie Swarm

by Magius96 - Jam Entry

Its a twin-stick type shooter set in the mythical zombie apocalypse. While enemies are coming at you from all directions, you will want to watch your shots as your ammunition is limited. Thankfully for you, it appears that every zombie is carrying at least one or two bullets, or a grenade. You only get one life, and the zombies are coming faster and faster, how long will you survive?

I used Unity3d Professional, Paint.Net, and Audacity.

Vocal sound effects were created by me, other sound effects were sourced from The background on the title screen was obtained online, but all other graphics were created by me.

I like it. I thought it would be really basic at first but you have all of the mechanics of a one roomed zombie shooter down. I even saw the stats screen when you die. The music must have been open-source or you specialize in it. I even found out that the grenade can kill the player.

Very cool dead animations and super complete system given the time, would add more ammo drop to make the game a little bit longer (or I am super bad at it ^^)

The movement was too slow to really be enjoyable for me- I couldnt really manuver around very well- rand out of bullets super quick and died.

I suggest you pace the difficulty a lot more. Start out with 1 or 2 zombies and work your way up to the hoard you get on starting out-

Awesome work submitting and finishing! Keep up the good work.

It's clever how you made survival zombie game where ammo is hard to come by even harder when your character always shoots at leat two bullets in different directions. Player really has to lure zombie in special positions to save some ammo. Pretty decent game in overall

Simple mechanics but is good to play. It would be better with high quality graphics. Good work!

Simple, but well executed. The ammo scarcity seems like it would be a bad idea with this type of game, but it really works here. Great job!

Simple but working fine.
The first run was confusing but once I get it was much more easy.
I would have liked a way to trow the grenades, different weapons and also different kind of enemies.

Good game ! Well done !

Cool! One-room survival horror! I didn't realize how sparse the bullets were at the beginning and I held down the fire button, leading to my swift demise.

My second run went much better.
