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!

Pretty Good

I enjoyed your game for what I thought it was: a quick, simple zombie shooter. I felt that it was a very good first submission and that you should be proud of yourself. I also agree with the other reviewers in that if you wanted to make a more lengthy game, more upgrades and such elements would probably be needed. I would love to see a longer sequel with these elements. I look forward to playing more of your games. :)

Fun game,but very short. Additionally, the medals aren't working. I'm not sure if it's just me or an actual problem.

Schulles responds:

I am not sure either... I don't know, what I could have done wrong, but there's actually no "Hey, you unlocked a new medal!" thing. However, the medals are added to your profile! So they are working... somehow... ;)

pretty cool

Too easy though, took no damage after day 4. I skipped the shotgun, brought it at the end because i had the money, was a waste anyway.
Reloading the minigun puts all your ammo into your clip, 3000 shot clip woo.

Those zombies

This wasn't that good to me, but it was pretty fun to see how it went on after only ten days. I would recommend this game because it has some interesting medals to get. Then again, I didn't seem to even get any of the medals as I was playing this. For whatever the glitch, this was still a nice game. I liked how you had a lot of good mobility. What I didn't like is that it was practically impossible to jump over any of the zombies without getting hurt.

Well, I guess it's better at being hard that way. The music was pretty good too. It could have been more detailed, as I am reminded of those bunny invasion games where there's a lot more going on. Then again, maybe it's better that way because it isn't so complicated. Gee, is it the second day of 2012 already, seems too soon.
