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. :)



Woah, the graphical intensity in this game is pretty amazing, all graphics three dimensional and smoothly moving, it's a challenge getting through, though I was a bit dissapointed to realize that I had almost been at the verge of completion a few times already when I finally started getting the hang of those zapper routes and making my way to the C4 without losing any of my health, wish it had gone on from there, and I hope you will be making a sequell to the series, sound effects were good, controls were all easy and the level of challenge constantly rose for each level down underground. Great menu and concept as well, keep it up!

Room for improvement

The game is alright but is missing some key things.
1.An aim control. the drones move too much and an aim control would help.
2.A jump button. I've been stuck countless time in a corner with a drone when there is a ledge next to me that could easily be jumped on to.
A good attempt but very basic.
