Basically, you run from a thief-murderer, get into elevators and get moneybags.

Based on a game of a friend of mine (and a friend of his too >_>)

It might just be that the link is broken. If it is, don't tell me. I don't care ._.

Btw, the highscores use your newgrounds name. If you're not logged in when the game loads you can just choose any name, but Guest_ will be in front of it.

Just telling you guys about some (known) bugs:
-Highscore bug: Guests have strange html in their names for some reason
-The highscore list is way too small, but as far as I know there's no way of helping that.
-Often, in the beginning it indicates your logged in and at the highscores still asks for a name.

Repetitive and offers nothing new.

This could be a much better game if you added modes, items, abilities to enhance gameplay. Modes could be like time attack where how long you can last before getting caught by the bad guy or a bad guy mode where you have to catch the kid before he escapes and sics the cops on you.

Items could be things like traps you set to slow the enemy down a la Home Alone 1 and 2. Like rigging the elevator door to drop something heavy on the bad guy when he comes through.

Abilities like jumping could help you last longer and avoid trouble. I dunno if you want to rework this game, but if not, it could be something for the sequel if you feel up to doing one someday.

I have thought about the first thing, and I've also thought about a sequel.
But I'd rather keep the sequel for later, once I've made some other games... so probably it won't happen anytime soon :/

Also, I like your ideas :)
though jumping would make the game too easy... and the floors would have to be twice the height ._.

Not bad for a simple game.

I like the concept - fun in elevators. I'll admit that I only played long enough for the "thief-murderer" to catch me a couple times. After that I figured out that he would eventually get me again and I could only play for so long. And that was kind of a bummer. I would prefer to have some kind of defense.

Would be an idea, but since it was meant as an arcade game I thought to rather keep it less complex :)
