This game was submitted to the mini Ludum Dare #35! This means that it was created in under 48 hours!

Woo! Thanks for the front page Tom!!
And thanks Prodevus for telling me!

You are the zombie in this human apocalypse arcade game (Interesting twist, huh?)
The goal is to survive for as long as you can while humans try to capture you!

Disclaimer - you can not infect other zombies, sorry! I hadn't thought of that until you guys told me. I will work to create an altered game-mode version in the future :)

- There's achievements for you to get! GET THEM!
- Try and get your name at the top of the scoreboard (see below).

It's an infinite world with the following features:
- There are bricks that you can break by shooting at them. The humans can break through blocks also!
- There is TNT which you can blow up (But be careful if you're too close!).
- There is water which slows you down.
- There are health power-ups that restore 1/10 of your health.
- There is Notch's Minecraft head! It only has a .0075% chance to spawn. It's just for fun.

TIMELAPSE!

Now that I've actually had a good chance to play it, I've found that having a strategy is the best way to survive. My strategy is to go back and forth in an area right from the start, breaking all of the blocks and shooting anything that's in my way. Once the humans come and start breaking the blocks, I'll have more room to move around! Using your enemies to work for you! How cool!? Also, using that method, it's easier to find hearts.

UPDATED:
- Score save properly again
- Reset highs scores because of weird numbers (Sorry!)
- Added pause
- Updated instructions
- Added energy boost

Very fun game. Nice and simple, the kind of thing you can load up and play whenever you want to kill some time and enjoy yourself without being overly complicated - everything you want in a flash game.

Zanzlanz, I think part of the reason shops in flash games are becoming popular is because of the aspect it adds to the game - if someone sees something in the shop they want, they become hooked. It adds something to the game, changes the gameplay slightly, and gives players something to aim for, a goal, you know? Makes a game feel a bit more substantial. That's my reasoning anyway.


Zanzlanz responds:

Your statement brings up a little nostalgia of how Flash games used to be like. Remember the first BIG flash game? I believe it was this one: myhelicoptergame.com. It's so simple yet it was a time killer for people on the internet to play. Nowadays people are looking for full-blown PC games on Flash.
There's no problem in that, but it's crazy how fast things changed.

Your reasoning is as good as mine is for shops. But I had 3 people comment about shops on this game (my first shooting game), and I've never gotten that request before. I'll keep that in mind for later though - add a shop. xD

The Notch head was rare? I found it on my first game and wondered what it was. I thought it was a human base or something. Also, the medals don't seem to work for me.


Zanzlanz responds:

Yes it's very rare. I've only seen it 3 times during my development (and one time I was invincible and was actually searching for it).
Medals never work for me either. Everyone else says "What are you talking about? Newgrounds works fine for me!" but I can never connect to the API. I wonder if you're having the same problem as I?

very very difficult but very fun at the same time. if you expanded on this concept and add some features you could end up with an amazing game. the main things this game needs is a shop and some money to be earned per kill.

Zanzlanz responds:

Yeah maybe in a future version I'll add some cool features like that :)
Where is everyone coming up with this shop idea in the first place? Is it something with shooting games I didn't know about?
