This game was submitted to the mini Ludum Dare #35! This means that it was created in under 48 hours!

Woo! Thanks for the front page Tom!!
And thanks Prodevus for telling me!

You are the zombie in this human apocalypse arcade game (Interesting twist, huh?)
The goal is to survive for as long as you can while humans try to capture you!

Disclaimer - you can not infect other zombies, sorry! I hadn't thought of that until you guys told me. I will work to create an altered game-mode version in the future :)

- There's achievements for you to get! GET THEM!
- Try and get your name at the top of the scoreboard (see below).

It's an infinite world with the following features:
- There are bricks that you can break by shooting at them. The humans can break through blocks also!
- There is TNT which you can blow up (But be careful if you're too close!).
- There is water which slows you down.
- There are health power-ups that restore 1/10 of your health.
- There is Notch's Minecraft head! It only has a .0075% chance to spawn. It's just for fun.


Now that I've actually had a good chance to play it, I've found that having a strategy is the best way to survive. My strategy is to go back and forth in an area right from the start, breaking all of the blocks and shooting anything that's in my way. Once the humans come and start breaking the blocks, I'll have more room to move around! Using your enemies to work for you! How cool!? Also, using that method, it's easier to find hearts.

- Score save properly again
- Reset highs scores because of weird numbers (Sorry!)
- Added pause
- Updated instructions
- Added energy boost

haha sometimes i just blowed up the TNT right next to me in my last heart just to day in a defiant blaze of glory.

good game for being made in two days, if yor are making plans on a full out sequel listen to the suggestion you already have.

Zanzlanz responds:

That's a cool way to play! ;D
I will listen; I trust my public's opinion very much (to a point, though, haha), and I do take everything into consideration. I just wanted to keep this game, in particular, very simple. But if there is a sequel, then it would not stand to be simple :)

A bit imple for me but still a nice layout

Zanzlanz responds:

Imple? Do you mean ample? *Confused*

Was a fun ten minutes or so. Good game to kill a few minutes. Don't let the negative feedback bother you that much. People are way too critical sometimes.
Of course I see the possibility of you expanding on this game more. But for 48 hours I would say this gets the job done well enough. Hope to see more from you.

Zanzlanz responds:

Thanks for your positivity! :)
Programming for 2 days straight wore me out a little - I might get back to this project later and make it more "complete." I'm not sure yet though.
