Death Cabin

NOTE: The game may appear to be laggy during the main menu when ran in Chrome. But the gameplay should be unaffected!

You start the game without any weapon, and thus must obtain a random weapon dropped into the cabin periodically. A key component of the gameplay is the conservation of ammunition - the constant dilemma between eliminating nearby threats immediately or saving some bullets for when things get tough should keep the player on his/her toes. Should you run out of ammo, you will be left with no means of defense; at least, until the next weapon drops.

There's some problem, you need to add some instruction on how to shoot and walk.
Because some other new players will just probably die.

This is a great game but enemies keep spawning right where I am, I died 4 times for this reason. It's a good game overall, the weapons aren't many but that's not even a problem for me. This game deserves 4 stars!

A great production value on a simple concept with very pleasing results.
However, a number of faulty design decisions mar the experience and result in a rating lower than the game deserves.

Let's get to the meat of this:
1- Wait for better weapons. At the end of each wave, you leave on enemy and then try to get a good weapon and a spare one on the ground. This has to be changed.
2- Small number of weapons. Each weapon is an adventure on its own and I loved how you change your play style to fit with each weapon. I wish there were more.
3- Shootyourself pistol. It is so weak it hurts my soul. Please buff it up a bit. You can make it more valuable by making it shoot downwards for a second jump (a suggestion).
4- Enemy quality over quantity. The game becomes impossible when there are so many skeletons/zombies walking around while the jumpers jump at you (unless you have a rifle) so measuring how many enemies that you can maneuver with different weapons and adding new types would make the game better.
5- No progression. I know it is a simple game but there are simple things you can do to make the experience last longer and increase replay-ability. Buying upgrades between rounds or unlocking more weapons and such.
6- Motivation lost. There is no reason to try to overcome the next round other self challenge, and that doesn't run for long. Adding things at certain milestones (like an extra health every 5 rounds) would make surviving the round more rewarding and more satisfactory.
7- No pause and no sliders. Pausing mid game is very important and I gave up many good rounds because someone was talking to me and I couldn't pause the game. Audio sliders may not sound like a big deal but they aren't hard to implement and are very valuable.
8- Background. The grey background is acceptable, but you can add windows and put those nice dark trees behind them for extra artistic touch, it will make the atmosphere better (especially with occasional lightning).

Good job on a good game.

Thank you for the very helpful feedback! The issue of progression is definitely something I am keeping in mind (as well as increasing content). As of now, I am slowly working on improving and expanding the game for the PC platform. If you are interested, you can follow the development of the game at http://gamejolt.com/games/death-cabin/90316

Thanks again!

Sometimes the red area doesn't show for me.

ChinyKian responds:

How peculiar... thanks for letting me know!

A good game but it has some bugs. Enemies will appear on top of you. You can not defend yourself if you run out of ammo.

ChinyKian responds:

Hello, where the enemies spawn are indicated by the red-aura-thingy on the ground. I probably should have made it more obvious. Thanks for the feedback!
