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

Brilliant game! Great graphics/music/movement. Poignant ending. I enjoyed playing this. Very well done.

great game, nice visuals and music, and a great and heart wrenching ending! I just wish it had more content and wasn't so short. a solid 4 and a half stars from me

Code Red was my favorite game before signing up for Newgrounds. I love the art, animation, music and combat in this game. This game should be the blueprint for all great games.

This game was absolutely amazing. Gameplay was great, graphics were good, kinda retro. This was the best game I have played in a while, and I do not dought this game will find it's way to the popular section.

Great game! Love the art style and the tight controls, and the fact you can eat people!
