Go for it man! These days the knowledge gap is lower than ever. Pretty much anyone can make a simple game with a little work. Cheers!

After reading all the reviews and watching the intro I had a feeling I was going to love this game...but...was this an early April Fool's joke? I mean I can't even make the first jump on the first stage! I kill the dude in the elevator and the guard on the roof next to me then I use C to run and no matter how far back I start I either run off the roof without jumping or the jump falls short...I've tried it at least 15 times and died every time. I don't know if this is a bug or what, but I have to give a zero star score since I can't even play the game.

DEDPIXL responds:

Oh no! I worried this might be the case for some. You do know there is a double correct? That may have been the issue. If you sprint and double jump you can clear it with ease.

It was cool how much I could get into this game. While it was quite repetitive, I still enjoyed the heck out of it! I think it was mostly because it was just fun to shoot your enemies over and over again. I still die fewer times than they do! It's nice how it's so easy to understand. I think the graphics are actually quite good.

I like how they yell "murder" right as they're dying. That does suit their last words. I wish I had some of those. It really is pretty easy once you get down to it. Going on the tops of the buildings give you fewer points. Besides, it's no fun that way.
