Code Red is an action platformer where you take control of an specimen that has escaped out of his containment chamber needing something, nourish yourself with human flesh while your mind is stormed with the need of reaching a room.

Game made in 72 hours for the Ludum Dare 37 game jam, we've added fixes in the following days due to feedback.

This is the post-jam fixed version, if you desire to play the original jam entry you can head over here:

-You can slash while you're running
-You can slash while jumping
-Eat to regain health.


-W,A,S,D to move (or arrow keys)
-Shift to walk
-H (or C) to slash
-J (or X) to Grab and eat
-K (or Z) to scream
-Jump agaisnt wall to climb
-Esc or P to pause

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Good action game, fun gameplay, nice visuals, adequate music, interesting story, the ending was nice and cinematic. The game is too short for me to give 5 stars, but it's solid 4 stars. If this game were any longer it would need some more stuff trough to not get repetitive and boring, like some additional abilities that the character unlocks (evolves) during game and additional enemies and obstacles, maybe bosses. With the existing amount of variety of 4 different encounter types (scientist, stunner, gunman, turret), the game ends just when it should trough.

Great Game, the plot was good, the controls were fluid and the AI was nice. Felt like the ending was predictable, by which I mean as soon as he sat down with his lady friend I made a bet to myself saying that the guards were gonna bust through the door.

Man, you never fail to amuse me, this was cool, the gameplay was fluid and the art was good. Great job dude, i wish this was a bigger game, even though the story woudln't fit. That's the best thing, the story just fit so well with the premise, great game.
