Hacklaster Mow-Down

Share Collapse

Author Comments

The patient's of Hacklaster mental asylum are very protective of their donut stash. Help Lylian hold back the waves of hospital staff who attempt to confiscate it.

Hacklaster Mow-Down is a simple rush style minigame spawned from the world of http://lyliangame.com. Simply click the lane to push a trolley down into the oncoming horde, last as long as you can!

This is a little game created on a weekend, my first flash game. The art and audio are borrowed from a main project I'm developing independently called 'Lylian'. So you could say this is a spawn from the Lylian world.
My goal is to raise a little funds and/or interest for the main project http://lyliangame.com .

Admittedly the game is a bit slow, and probably too easy. So perseverance conquers all here.

The game is best enjoyed with your favourite beverage in one hand, and mouse tap happy with the other.
There is a highscore table available, WHICH NOW WORKS here!: http://pixelpickle.com/mo wdown/highscores.php .

Also, found a bug in the game, will need to tweak and re-upload it as soon as I get the chance.

Got bored

Good at first but i got bored on stage 44, other than tht its a good game.

Great Game

It was a great game man, I got hooked and did like 60 levels. Would be better if there was a few more types of enemies coming at you.

ionside responds:

Cheers, KalasGibari! Yeah I did have another enemy type; called the Ratchildren. But the extra sprites caused cpu melt down in later levels. Due to my inexperience in Flash I'm sure. :)


Looking forward to your main project. The protagonist (that little girl or what it was) looks realy nice and ...well I am looking forward to that game.

PS: Is the spawn number rather random? I got to stage 108 but I have like half the score of that guy on stage 95. Bug or random spawn number?
PPS: The music is awesome - it's what actually made me keep playing.

ionside responds:

108, wow! Ok I need to get this crossdomain highscore table working here.
The spawns are random in a controlled fashion. I've made tweaks to the game since that person got to level 95, so sorry about that inconsistency.
If I get the highscore working through here I may reset the table and keep the old as an archive.

Yes I'm looking forward to releasing the main project!


this is a pretty good game, after you play a couple of levels you get hooked, i played 50 levels.

the only thing i was wondering about is the story, wtf is going on. the only thing i can think of at the moment is a zombie horde in a hospital

ionside responds:

Thanks, WahPUNCH!

Story: Lylian and her comrades have been cornered in the laundry floor of the Hacklaster Mental Hospital for the mentaly incapable.
They scored themselves a bunch of donuts from the head nurse's private stash and now she's let loose the entire hospitals staff to retrieve them.

Only Lylian can fend them off with her unbound straightjacket. While the other are in the back... eating protected donuts.

I would change just one thing

make the bins respawn just a little faster.

ionside responds:

Thanks for the feedback, Kortech. I did put some thought to changing the trolley spawn rate, but was worried it may make the game too easy (?)
