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

nice final to the game , i not expect that,


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great Game, the plot was good, the controls were fluid and the AI was nice. Felt like the ending was predictable, by which I mean as soon as he sat down with his lady friend I made a bet to myself saying that the guards were gonna bust through the door.

Man, you never fail to amuse me, this was cool, the gameplay was fluid and the art was good. Great job dude, i wish this was a bigger game, even though the story woudln't fit. That's the best thing, the story just fit so well with the premise, great game.

We did have some thoughts on expanding but we were following up another project at the time :) Thanks so much for checking out this game after playing Sucker Munch!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This game is really fun. I wish you would expand on it though add more lvls and maybe we could play as different monsters. I know this is just me saying that but I think a lot of people would like it!

You're not wrong, quite a considerable amount of people have mentioned that the game should expand. We really appreciate the comment and we'll definitely think about it while we work on another game in the meanwhile. Thanks!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Excellent game! I really liked the ending and the pixel art (at least for me) was is very enjoyable and I didn't run into any bugs what's really great. The only problem was that sometimes it would freeze but I think my computer is to blame for that one. An overall great game without any outstandingly bad glitches or bugs. Hope that there will be more stuff like it.
