We made this game in 48 hours for NGJam8.Its been fun.
When the theme was announced(at midnight here..),Padraig immediatly shouted(via IM) "CAB IN THE WOODS".....get it :D. fun.We brainstormed ideas,eventually deciding to make a game based on a taxi driver for the supernatural, who only takes fares from pop-culture monsters :D. then went to bed,where Joe had an Epiphany and the morning after said "What if rather than making 1 game, we make 3 mini-games..cause like..who needs sleep?".Everyone agreed so we began.We made 3 games with completly different gameplay mechanics,Slender being a pacman clone,Yeti being a momentum avoidance game, and swamp being a mario style water level.Fun for all the family.

Phew, Thank god thats done, hope you enjoy, we've been staring at this thing for the last 48 hours and no longer feel gentle with reviews :D

Thanks- Team DJP

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I GOT STUCK IN THE TREES But this game is EPIC!!!!!!!!!


Rated 2 / 5 stars

+Flashlight effect. Nice touch

+Music is good

+Most of the art is good


-Fail on not using Mouse.hide() to hide the real cursor.

-Music is repetitive and gets annoying quickly

-Barely any plot, if not none

-Not interesting, I got bored in 2 minutes

-Tries to be scary, but fails

-Graphics could use some more work

-Slow and laggy, needs optimization

-Controls are wonky and stiff as fuck

-Not immersive at all

-Atmosphere is lacking.

-Repetitive gameplay

-Making the player jump through hoops with inane excuses like "Oh by the way, Slender hates zombies, so you aren't allowed to run them over even though that would logically make him happy". Bonus points for the excuse contradicting itself.

Final score: 4 pros / 14 cons = 0.286 = 3/10 = 1.5/5

Since you only had 2 days to make this, however, I'll give an extra half-star.

Cheers for the review :D, The break down does help alot, as personally this is my first real flash game.We more did this for the jam than anything else, cause we love jams,having attended like...5ish jams in the last 2-3 years.We learned loads, that we will hopefully put in the next of our games...if we make another flash game, i don't so hard to make "original" games in flash, since there are millions of games out there already, meh, ill make something over the summer.. :D
