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 entertaining

It's not exactly something new, but it is entertaining and the graphics are good. The only thing that *really* annoys me is that you can't really get to the very end of the game screen. I don't keep an eye on my character too much, I often focus on the zombies. It was almost too late when I realized that my character was stopped by an invisible wall. Maybe you could mark that border better. Otherwise very good!

Cool Shooter


The first half of the game is a bit frustrating, due to the fact that zombies will eventually muscle up on you, as your guns aren't strong enough, and the slow reload times. The most frustrating thing was the collision detection. There are times when I was nowhere near touching the zombie, and I got hit. This is especially true when you're trying to jump over them.

While I feel the M16 is the best gun, it runs out of ammo too quickly. I do like how various guns affect your movement and jump ability too. With the minigun, you're basically a rock, lol. However, this gun also makes the game too easy.

The pixel art graphics were done well. One thing I would have liked to see was the progression of the day from day to night as the level goes on. The music and sound effects were good too.

The game does add a little bit more to the traditional fixed shooter, as you're not entirely restricted to a single spot, as you can move and jump around. The zombies do get too repetitive, especially in the later waves, with so many of those smaller zombies coming at you. It seems like it would be difficult to expand upon, due to the limited space available.

Otherwise, cool game.

pretty good

the game is fun and the guns aren't over powered but the space you get makes it really hard to fight in but other than that its a fun game to waste alittle time on.
