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

Awesome. I didn't find a way to change weapon or alternate fire (unity launcher preferences confused me) as well as HP bar. May be this is a wine (kubuntu) issue. Doesn't matter. I got a lot of drive playing it!

In "fastest" mode PC run away from room. Zombies too! World's infestation began! Great philosophic game! Increased my rate!

When I try to launch the embedded game, I get "NoSuchKeyThe specified key does not exist.". This is on Chrome Version 48.0.2564.109 (64-bit), on Linux Mint.

WASD does not work unless the game is maximized. I really like the speed of this!

Classic zombie horde gameplay. It would be nice to see the bullets move on the screen when you shoot.

Cool! Saw your comment on my entry and knew I had to check yours out as well!

The controls feel great and I like the simplistic art style, great job. I'd love to play an expanded version of this.

I didn't expect anything when I started this game. I said to myself "this is just another shooter game" - and finally I had fun playing it. This is hard but with awesome mechanics. It could be interesting to add other features. Really well done. A good casual game ++

I kinda wished there was something new in this, but it really is just fighting a swarm.

It's a perfectly playable game, very fast, very challenging, over all it's a good game for 48 hours.

OK, I have to admit that I only spent a short time actually playing the game. Seemed good indeed for compo but on web the keys indeed did not work (don't have a Windows machine here, can you export a macOS version?)

Anyway, instead I took a cue from your screenshot and had the room fill to the brim with zombies to see what would happen. Amazingly, Unity's physics solver can hold a ridiculous overload of objects inside the room and only at this point:

did it eject the first zombie. At this time the zombie horde was already a green undulating mess with zombie meat squished together in horrific ways. It was only once it got to the 1 fps simulation rate that it really started throwing out suckas, one at a time.

So, in short. Great game :) I had fun.

Ah, never mind in fullscreen it did work. I reiterate, nicely done!

I died...

Oh well.

Nice work!

Great little Game. The controls were a little bit confusing. But i had a fun while playing.

The game has a nice pace, but it felt too fast for me! :P Zombies come too quickly and it's really hard to get health packs, I kinda tried getting some, but so many zombies made it impossible. :P

Controls work great, but for arena shooters, something more automatic feels better. :)

If you can balance the zombie spawning and controls, it'll make the game nicer to most people. Visual HP bar would help a bit too! :)

Cheers!

Like it. Zombies are fast though.

Jan 1, 2017 @ 10:34pm

Speed was a little quick for me, but it was nice that it was different then I expected. I'd like to see gun upgrades, because the zombies get overwhelming quickly.

I agree with the other comments that the zombies are too fast. It was fun though, and when all the zombies pile on after death it made me laugh.

Nice! I like the feeling when you shoot! It feels good to kill zombies!

On the other side, the zombies felt a bit too fast, and they seemed to duplicate themselves

Good job! Keep up the good work!
