Happiness is a barbarian with a laser, sword and jetpack.
Certainly has a few issues that need to be iron out like passing through walls in a couple spots; final boss not placing sentries at all the 2nd time I fought him, the bird boss being easy if you slash it then jump on the platform above it and wait for it to return then repeat, not really knowing what the beer does until the end, freezing when I dissapeared into a wall while messing around after the end.
It is certainly worth 5 stars nonetheless, I enjoyed the hell out of it!
(it also took me an embarassingly long time to figure out the green guys were slashable)

Sorry to hear you encountered some bugs, and unfortunately I was unable to recreate them while playing. But I'm really glad to hear that you enjoyed it still! Thanks :)

I remember those old men from the Legend Of Zelda games. I appreciate you including themes like that. I admit that some of the enemies seemed too difficult to kill. The worst offenders were probably those jumping green guys. I couldn't understand how to injure them. I'm glad you didn't have to kill a different old man every time for the medal. Wow, I'm deranged.

I thought the graphics were really good. I just like the idea of a barbarian having more than one weapon, one being a gun of all things. It reminds me of "Gundarr". The sounds were pretty authentic too. There was a unique way of showing health and of getting new things.

Thanks! Really glad you liked the design choices.
You have to shoot the green guys and then slash them when they turn red :)

Great game, but the controls are kind of unresponsive. Also it's a pain to kill infected because you have to shoot then slash. I wouldn't have a problem if the gun doesn't have strong knockback. Last of all, what does beer even do? 3/5

Thanks, the control issue might happen because of lag. You should try the standalone.

Beer makes you stronger, and actually enables you to kill the infected with only the sword. You can kill almost anything with just one hit when you're drunk. Enemies also fly further, which is hopefully fun. Oh and it doubles your score :)

This is pretty cool. ^^ I'm sure I'll keep coming back to it. I feel pretty lost at the moment, but it seems like I'm moving towards something, so that should be fine, lol. This game has such a retro feel to it. Something about how quick all the movements are, I think. I'm glad you're pretty forging with the save points and stuff, though. I think I would have ragequit pretty quick, otherwise. XD

Thanks! And good to hear, remember to drink beer if you get into a hard spot. Beefs you up nicely :)

I don't understand why Is there no jump down button? Good game tho.

Thanks! Most levels are designed with this in mind. It adds a bit of a strategy to the narrow space fights.
