Thanks for front page! ^^

This is my first game and submission to NG. Hope you all like it. :)

The objective is simple: escape the evil research facility Helltowers with your life.

Note: There are prisoners to save in this game, but I omitted their dialog and any interaction with them in this version to quickly get it finished. This doesn't effect beating the game though.

Here are some tips for the difficult parts:

- Always shoot repeatedly and fast (especially with the Zappers).
- When you dodge, you can double tap the up key and it will always work.
- Save up HV ammo for the 2 lower levels (purple and dark areas).
- Don't waste EX ammo on Zappers (you'll likely miss and waste the few EX ammo there is).
- When shooting Zappers, wait till they get to their highest point and hit them twice.
- Use HV ammo on Zappers if you have any (you'll destroy them in 2 hits).
- If you can't beat a Zapper coming after you, walk out of the screen (if you can) and come back.
- EX ammo is useful if you're being attacked from both sides and you want to quickly dipose of one or both enemies.

If you follow these tips you should be able to beat the game in 3 or 4 tries. :)



you shit bastard

Amazing graphics for a flash.

Most people don't put shit into graphics on a flash,but you have achieved something for this!The action was ok,the zombies need to be a little easier to kill,You can't jump or run for some reason,maybe it's because you spen most of the time with the graphics,maybe it was because, you didn't want us to jump across those gaps or whatever.The point is,graphics aint worth shit unless you can make a good game
to back them up,7/10,4/5.

Not bad, but could be great.

This is not a bad game. The graphics are superb and the controls are simple. It's also quite big, so there's lots to explore. However, there are lots of serious, easily fixable flaws.

1) Your character can't duck, jump, or run.
2) The zombies move too slowly. You could compensate by making them easier to kill.
3) No save points.
4) No power ups.
5) No background music

If these flaws were fixed (and it wouldn't take long), this could be one of the best NG zombie games around.

pretty good

excellent graphics, pretty good physics, but many flaws. No way to rescue ppl, no check points, too short and more. If fixed, it would be great!

good but not my sorta game
