v1.8 minor fixes & further modification to level 3.

v1.7 allow SHIFT to be used instead of CTRL for single select (for Mac users). More explicit hint at start of level 3. Increased scroll margins to reduce mouse-out frequency.

v1.6 fixes the bug if you finish level 1 while the 'exit' popup is still visible (thanks whitemang!). Also turned off the preloader adverts.

An anonymous office skyscraper in the city. A rogue email containing a deadly brain-melting cybervirus. One minute you're buried in spreadsheets and the next you're fighting your way through the undead. Now you and your co-workers must make a break for the roof and a helicopter evac - survive at any cost!

EDIT: front-paged, thanks NG!

Not bad.... controls could be better, but not bad. Some way to make people stay at one spot would be nice.

Thanks for the feedback.
You can't pin them down - they will always flee from nearby zombies... but if you just let go of the mouse then they tend to stay more or less where you left them. They also cluster together so sometimes you might get a tendency to 'drift' a bit as they all try to get into a group. I normally move each group into a small or safe room before leaving them alone.

I like this game, I like the concept, but I'm not the biggest fan of the controls. Personally, I would have prefered WASD for movement and mouse for shooting, the player playing as a certain character from the building and escorting other survivors to the exit. That would have made a more enjoyable game for me, but this game wasn't just made for me. I do like the concept, the action is good and the game is enjoyable so ultimately you did a good job and this game will be a welcome addition to the games available on Newgrounds.

Thanks! We thought about making the game like you described but we really wanted to try this control system out.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Brilliant little game. Love the 8bit retro graphics and really enjoyed the subtle strategy needed to win the game. Good job!
