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. :)

I hope you'll make an update so you really can rescue those people. Also, running and jumping would make it better. I'd like to see a splinter cell mgs type stealth action game from you in the future in this style.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very good

the only thing i think you make itbetter is a jump option but other then that bravo. Just one question whats up startign with only one life ????

Very nice game!

I have to say the graphics were brilliant! It was a very good idea but I think some areas could ahve been improved.

Good points:
-Graphics are awesome!
-Good game idea
-The game isn't too hard (well for me it was since I don't usually play these type of games ;P)

Bad Points:
-As other people mentioned health too low
-As other people mentioned no save points
-I didn't know how to help the people in chains ;S I went up to them and pressed all the keys but didn't work xP
-Erm.. the zapper thing was annoying but now I know how to kill it Lol
-Hm.. not much else :D

Anyway good game dude :)

I was going to make the prisoners saveable but I had to finish it quickly so I left that part out... :P

Amazing Graphics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great job on the graphics man!!!!their amaizing. Game was good over all but something need to be fixed like the fact the health is so low. There is also no were to save so when you die well you gotta start over. But over all great game!

ZZR responds:

When I was making it, I thought it was too easy.... and I was worried everyone would say, "damn this game is too easy! BLAM!" ... that's why the health is only 4 hits and there's no save points. sry >_< future versions, I will definitely add health and savepoints. :)
