Hi there!
This is my very first game submitted to Newgrounds.
Special thanks goes to Adam Atomic for creating Flixel and Kevin MacLeod for providing the music!

Thanks for reading!

The game is now much more left-handed-friendly and allows moving with the arrow keys!
When carrying the minigun you become slower and jump less higher!
Fixed the medal-popup-problem!
MENU-button is now MAINMENU-button and asks if you REALLY want to leave and to lose all your process!
You can now switch weapons by pressing 'Q' and 'E'!
"How to pause" now explained ingame!

Good game, BIG flaws!

This game is fun as hell, but it has ONE FATAL FLAW THAT YOU NEED TO FIX! It's the pause button. Some one calls you when you are at wave 8, and you can't answer because there's no pause button. The menu button just takes you to the MAIN menu?! In other words, there's no pause button. Even if the game is short, there is no excuse for that.
OK... Whats good about this game? Well, for a pixel game, the graphics are good. The music, and sounds are good, but the music just doesn't fit.
The game play is good, but the level is a bit crowded, giving you little space to escape when there's a hoard of "little zombies". Add to that the incredibly short amount of ammo and your screwed. Overall its a fun, and addicting game, with a good challenge. You can't really bash the game for lack of variety in zombies, or repetitiveness, because it's too short. 8/10 4/5

Thank you very much! Well the "pausebutton" is like in every flixel-game clicking out of the screen. A play-sign should appear and the background should turn darker. :)

Fun, a bit easy!

Liked the medal variety. I played it twice, the first time dying because I bought the Uzi and later on the AK47 ... too much waste on full ammo and health that I couldn't buy anything higher... died.

Second time through, spammed the hell outta the pistol and was shooting (pun intended) towards saving up enough to just buy the minigun... which is a bit impossible, so I settled for the M16. Lemme tell ya, it's easy to keep up with that M16 for one day and then buy the minigun... and still have enough money to buy all the other guns... lol

Ultimately, the minigun is the only one you'll ever need to use... the creator of the game might as well just put infinite bullets on it, because you'll never use at least 2000 of it's full ammo anyway. The draw back, as mentioned is that it slows you down and you can't jump as high - but that thing spits high damage bullets w/o a break, so all you have to do is stand on the porch and you've got all the range you need for the zombies coming to you.

Disliked that it looked like you had room to move between the edge of the screen and the box in the yard... but there was no space and you could get trapped and gang banged by zombies there.

Disliked that there was no sound or anything to inform you that you're out of bullets, other than the little ammo notation in the bottom left corner. Maybe I just suck, but I had to completely focus on the hordes of zombies rushing me.

Great job, and music choice, for your first game on Newgrounds! =)

Thank you very much! Great review! Actually there is a "click" sound when you're out of ammo, but it's probably a bit quiet.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

2 easy

it was way to easy and had no skill invovled. all you did was buy the gun you could afford and refill heatlth and ammo, then just sit still and shoot the zombies! jumping is useless cause even when ur above the zombie's head they can still hurt you! But nonetheless it was a good time waster :p


Rated 4 / 5 stars

i enjoy playing this game

but it's way too easy, especially when you have the last weapon
so -2


Rated 4 / 5 stars
