Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

The bug where the wizard disappears off the map when charging down the screen is still there. I cannot beat the game because he never comes back >.>

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

While I love a lot about the game there were a few bugs I encountered that kept me from going above 3.5 stars.

1) Sometimes Rupert doesn't respond to the movement keys and seems to run across the screen in a random direction.
2) Rupert would frequently get stuck to the edges of the screen and become unresponsive to the movement keys for several seconds which led to him getting the crap beaten out of him by zombies
3) During the final boss encounter absolutely nothing I did seemed to damage him, his health bar never moved at all. I don't know if this is because I haven't figured out how to damage him or not but it seemed odd.

1) Even without any upgrades if you move around and don't miss I rarely found myself at 10 or less health, and once I got some upgrades it never happened. Maybe instead of 75% more damage at 10 or less health something like 15% more damage at 50 or less would be more useful?
2) Also, I love the armless zombie surfing, but it would be nice if you could control your movement a little better. Obviously pinpoint control would be too much, but a little more would be nice.
3) Even after the Lucky Me upgrade I didn't notice a difference in the drops left by breaking the crates.

That's all I've got for now. Overall, awesome job! Can't wait to see it again in a couple of upgrades.

Pretty cool game. It just sucks that the last boss disappears, after trying to ram me, every time.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

This game has such a lot of potential, but it's kinda wasted, I think. First, like others said before, the endless clicking is totally annoying and the fact that there are no really different or useful weapons (yeah, I know, it's 1902) doesn't exactly help with forgetting about the monotony of this game. I mean, I barely even used the rifle, because the pistol does almost the same kind of damage, shoots faster and has unlimited ammo.
But actually over and over doing the same shit again is what kills the game for me here. I mean, it doesn't change at all. Only the mass of Zombies varies and that's it. The perks don't even really influence the gameplay. And that's already my main critic point, but as it's a really big one I only give 3 stars.
