Thanks for front page! ^^

This is my first game and submission to NG. Hope you all like it. :)

The objective is simple: escape the evil research facility Helltowers with your life.

Note: There are prisoners to save in this game, but I omitted their dialog and any interaction with them in this version to quickly get it finished. This doesn't effect beating the game though.

Enjoy,

-- Will Harrison

EDIT:

Here are some tips for the difficult parts:

- Always shoot repeatedly and fast (especially with the Zappers).
- When you dodge, you can double tap the up key and it will always work.
- Save up HV ammo for the 2 lower levels (purple and dark areas).
- Don't waste EX ammo on Zappers (you'll likely miss and waste the few EX ammo there is).
- When shooting Zappers, wait till they get to their highest point and hit them twice.
- Use HV ammo on Zappers if you have any (you'll destroy them in 2 hits).
- If you can't beat a Zapper coming after you, walk out of the screen (if you can) and come back.
- EX ammo is useful if you're being attacked from both sides and you want to quickly dipose of one or both enemies.

If you follow these tips you should be able to beat the game in 3 or 4 tries. :)

Amazing Graphics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great job on the graphics man!!!!their amaizing. Game was good over all but something need to be fixed like the fact the health is so low. There is also no were to save so when you die well you gotta start over. But over all great game!


ZZR responds:

When I was making it, I thought it was too easy.... and I was worried everyone would say, "damn this game is too easy! BLAM!" ... that's why the health is only 4 hits and there's no save points. sry >_< ..in future versions, I will definitely add health and savepoints. :)

with some work it'll be perfect

great graphics. really great.
my big qualms were the controls, for one. they were choppy and slow, especially when it came to walking around and turning.
sometimes the gun wouldn't respond to me hitting the fire button, either.
that, and the fact that you only have four hits and no health makes this game a bit aggrivating when you lose (since there's no place to save)
but other than that, it's really good

Good first impression. But later...

Pluses:
+AWESOME graphics!;
+Nice atmosphere;

Minuses:
-Boring gameplay;
-No fresh ideas;
-Too little amount of pickups;
-No checkpoints?!;
-No possibility to jump or crouch.

Weel, as a first try that was awesome. When I saw the graphics I was like paralyzed for a moment. They are REALLY great. But, as appeared soon, it was almost the only advantage in the game...
The music and the graphics created a scary atmosphere. It could be better if the game's genre was adventure instead of action.
What does the gameplay consist from? Walking around, picking up a few items, shooting a bunch of zombies? Not interesting. Sorry, too boring. If the main hero could do some actions besides walking and shooting it could be more interesting.
If there are any kinds of items you can pick up, why don't you make a big amount of them? The guy could use grenades, find keys or other stuff like that.
It's really frustrating when you've got really far and you get killed. But in most of games you're given checkpoints, or at least a certain amount of lives. Why couldn't you make so?
My advise: try yourself in adventure genre. I'd love to see such work of yours. If you have any problems involving programming, feel free to E-mail me.
~Good luck with an adventure game! ^_^


ZZR responds:

Thx, I was going to have jumping and crouching, but coding that became extremely frustrating XD... so I decided the gameplay could just be walking, dodging, shooting, and switching ammo... which is better than just walking and shooting :P

re adventure, it was supposed to be a blend of action of adventure, but turned out to be more action, because of time limitations, but hopefully in future versions I can get a better mix of action and adventure.
