DESCRIPTION AND PLOT
Introduction (you must not animate this in your entry)

The main hero's color is #000262 (dark blue). He will fight various armed or unarmed opponents of your choice.
At the beginning and ending of your entry animate the hero coming/going up a set of stairs, into/out of an elevator or through a door. He uses a gun as the one in this image: http://image.shutterstock.com/display_pi c_with_logo/52025/52025,1204084757,1/sto ck-photo-black-semi-automatic-handgun-is olated-on-white-9823588.jpg If you're only doing 2-D you can trace the one in the picture. If you're using angles, try to draw as accurately as you can. He can pick up other weapons on his way but he must drop them by the end of your entry. He must still have his gun by the end of your entry. He can kill his opponents. He must not be killed or heavily injured during your entry. You can include many rooms or levels in your entry.
