Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

First of all, congrats on making an entertaining game. I especially enjoyed the music, choice of graphics, and the easy controls. So far I've played the game twice. Once to get used to it (wasn't able to find her) and another time to see if I could actually win.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, but I had 100% on all of the map and completed all of the side missions (fugitives, letters, food) and still had to let time run out because I couldn't find her anywhere. After reading many of the comments, it seems I'm not the only one who this has happened to. Hmm...

I'll probably try to play this game once more since it was so entertaining, but the frustration of feeling like I have completed all areas without actually winning the game was a big negative for this outstanding gameplay.

Still trying to find the bitch...

I had all zones on 100% completed every supply/prisioner mission and no clue of the daughter... :/

Its...

...not a matter of ease, her locations are randomized so finding her in a minute or 30 seconds should be irrelevant. I have been to every area, collected every weapon, found a virus, killed fugitives and I've still been unable to find her. Now I gotta cross reference 66 fucking clues with each part of the town to figure out where she is :(.

The game is the shit btw.

Engaging, but...

Well, I really enjoyed this game for the most part. I thought the system of exploration was really neat, and searching the dead bodies for clues to narrow down your search made each room feel important. I agree that pressing up to go down a ladder seemed odd at first, but since up is used for all actions in the game, you get used to it pretty fast.

I have a few minor complaints. First, friendly fire. In a 2D game like this, instead of providing realism, its just really annoying. Its not that bad when the survivors have a long-range weapon; you can just stand behind them and conserve ammunition. But when a survivor has a melee weapon, their AI is very poor; they seem to just wander around, and its difficult to protect yourself without killing them first.

Second, melee weapons are basically useless. It seemed like the hit detection was a little off, and they rarely dealt the damage I expected them to (for example, I felt the chainsaw should have been a little more powerful). I suppose melee is supposed to be a last resort, but if you do opt to make yourself vulnerable by fighting within arms reach, there should be some sort of payoff.

The thing that bugged me the most is that I couldn't seem to find my daughter. I unlocked 100% on every section of the map...but no daughter. Maybe you have to complete all the side missions? There was still a section where I hadn't handled the fugitive and a section where I had to find letters, but otherwise, everything was completed. If those missions were a pre-requisite for finding my daughter (which doesn't make much sense), I would have liked a heads up.

Overall, though, I think this is a really great game, and I think you deserve the front page.

Frustrating, Brilliant, and Frustrating...

I give this an 8 because it was fun.

I would have given it a 10, had it not been so frustrating.

My first time through, I searched EVERY location, and saved dozens of survivors with time to spare.

Problem being, I never the girl. I thought possibly that you got lazy/evil and never put her in the game at all. That's probably my biggest problem with this.

But I played it again. And I found her. Well, the city got nuked before we left, and I'm really not going to play this again in order to actually win.

Why?

All the combat is pretty bad (melee being worse than ranged, but the guns are pretty sad too), and the best way to defeat the enemy is either use allies or enter/exit doors until you get the right placement of zombies.

Speaking of allies, friendly fire is not realistic, but annoying in this. Also, your allies die far too easily, which is frustrating.

There were a number of other small issues, but overall I did enjoy it. Afterall, I played it twice. I mean, this clearly isn't as good as Last Stand: Union City will be, but I'd say its better than most flash games that make front page.

Overall: Frustrating, Brilliant, and Frustrating...
