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. :)



Rated 4 / 5 stars

cool game, but just frustrating

nice game, good graphics, had to jam the Ctrl key to actually stay alive but got hard. storyline could have been better. but this game just got me frustrated. you should have put in some health packs or something like that. otherwise, it would have been, to me, beatable. still, good game though.


Rated 1 / 5 stars


it was boring it was too slow, there were a lot of annoying bugs. for some reason pressing up didnt help me all that much. the only good part was that the graphics were decent.

Cool but buggy

Cool looking game, nice animations and graphics. But there are definitely some bugs that threaten to frustrate the player. On two occassions I was unable to dodge and move whilst an enemy was attacking, thus killing me. Needless to say annoying.
