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. :)



alright but difficult.......

Not a bad one

I can tell that a good bit of effort went into this one. The visuals are fantastic, and the gameplay is pretty good. There are 2 things I don't understand. First of all, the main character just strolls along like he owns the place. I personally would have been running my ass off. But that kinda gives him the appearance of being badass. Secondly, the whole damage thing is off. I was shooting an average of 6 headshots per zombie before they went down. Headshots, mind you. 6 of them. Per zombie. See where I'm going with this? It is just a little ridiculous. And you only have to be hit 4 times until you die. Hit by anything, including: gunshots, zombie, and drone. I like this game, it just seems a little off balance.

Its decent

the game has good graphics and a nice story though there are some flaws. Like you die way too easy it takes 4 hits from a zombie but it takes like 5-6 shots from a gun. If that wasnt there then it would be a 10/10 but i give it 8/10

Great game!!!

Great characters graphics and gore.
The controls didn't react sometimes and you die a bit to quickly but beside that, it was a great game!!!
