Hi there!
This is my very first game submitted to Newgrounds.
Special thanks goes to Adam Atomic for creating Flixel and Kevin MacLeod for providing the music!

Thanks for reading!

The game is now much more left-handed-friendly and allows moving with the arrow keys!
When carrying the minigun you become slower and jump less higher!
Fixed the medal-popup-problem!
MENU-button is now MAINMENU-button and asks if you REALLY want to leave and to lose all your process!
You can now switch weapons by pressing 'Q' and 'E'!
"How to pause" now explained ingame!

Very Enjoyable, Simplely Pure Zombie Carnage

I have found one of my new fav games ever!
I love the zombie genre, and horde games too, so this natraully appels to me. And the thing I loved the most out of this was the "Swarm" mechanic. Simplely, the zombies don't get tougher, but they get more of the each time until you are overwhelmed!

I have struggled to find a half-decent zombie game that employs this idea. Most Zombie games just make them tougher, which is the lazy way in my option. 1, it makes no sence on why a single zombie can take 16 rounds to the head when 20 minutes ago it took one has always annoyed me and ruins most games like this. Luckly you didn't fall into this trap, I found that the waves were just right on the difficulty level although a hard mode would be nice.
My only complaints would be the types were a bit lacking. Now don't get me wrong, too many types ruins the entire game, but too little can be a downfall also (L4D got it right, Hunter,Smoker,Boomer,Witch and Tank ^^ although the latest 2 are ok as well). 1 or 2 more added to this would be great. A faster one perhaps?
Also the minigun was massively overpower but, I guess you did that for kicks, since its like the last gun ^^ The shottie is proberly the best all-rounder gun and works well againist all of the zombies.

Please make a sequal. these kind of games don't get made often enough. (sry for any spelling errors ^^)

Pretty Good

I enjoyed your game for what I thought it was: a quick, simple zombie shooter. I felt that it was a very good first submission and that you should be proud of yourself. I also agree with the other reviewers in that if you wanted to make a more lengthy game, more upgrades and such elements would probably be needed. I would love to see a longer sequel with these elements. I look forward to playing more of your games. :)

I enjoyed it, to a certain extent.
The zombies once introduced there was nothing more new.
The weapons were available from start, you just had to make your way there from earning money but you knew what it was you where getting.
There was no upgrades, no such thing as; Barricades? Survivors? Explosives?

There was no new areas to unlock or move to.
I suppose it sticks to its title, but it COULD move on to other houses?

It was enjoyable for so long...

I like zombie games so your rating will no doubt be high due to that.

Make a sequel, i'd love to see more things included of what i've mentioned.

A very good game.

I was playing this on a laptop, and didn't find it that hard to play. This game was pretty simple to use. The animation was 8-bit, which I loved. The sound was good also, I enjoy the zombie's voice in the start of each round. The minigin is the most powerful gun in the game. I stay in one spot when I got it, all I did was turn around and killed many zombies. Thank you for reading.
