Code Red is an action platformer where you take control of an specimen that has escaped out of his containment chamber needing something, nourish yourself with human flesh while your mind is stormed with the need of reaching a room.

Game made in 72 hours for the Ludum Dare 37 game jam, we've added fixes in the following days due to feedback.

This is the post-jam fixed version, if you desire to play the original jam entry you can head over here:

-You can slash while you're running
-You can slash while jumping
-Eat to regain health.


-W,A,S,D to move (or arrow keys)
-Shift to walk
-H (or C) to slash
-J (or X) to Grab and eat
-K (or Z) to scream
-Jump agaisnt wall to climb
-Esc or P to pause

It's a nice game I love the ending but please add more!

VeryEvilTomato responds:

It was a Ludum Dare game so that's why it's short on content, really glad you liked it so much!

Not necessarily one of my all-time favorites, but this game is really fun. I really liked the twist of managing your own lives to go through the game. I've never seen a game do that before. Overall, it was a great concept and was well-done for a game jam. I would say that I would only criticize the story. I understand the whole romance, but the story feels very lack-luster. It was missing something. Maybe a background as to how she was captured? Anyway, loved the game! I hope you make more like this!

We wish we could've explained more, it was very rough for the time given! Who knows if there might be an expanded version on the future, although I'm personally a big fan of interpretable stories, I'll take your opinion in count! Thanks! :)

This is really good! I eventually gave up to watch a playthrough of it tho when I kept on dying. lol

VeryEvilTomato responds:

Hahaha we did make certainly a small difficult spike on some sections, although I'm glad you still managed to enjoy the game, thanks!!!!!

This is a really good game, the controls are a little floaty, but otherwise perfect!

VeryEvilTomato responds:

Thanks a lot man! Really appreciate it :)

Really cool but I cant use checkpoints. :(

This seems to commonly be a browser issue, if you could contact the programmer and send him details that'd be really helpful, in any case try another browser or reload the page please!
