  • Fixed player teleport on terrain glitch.
  • Fixed player can't jump when on enemy ragdoll.
  • Other fixes.


  • If after winning the game highscore and medal aren't published, go to menu and press 'X' on keyboard / xbox controller until it works.
  • Minor fix.


The project started in January 11, 2019.

I usually prefer to program from the lowest logical level possible, but at the same time creating games without an engine is quite tiring.

So I found a compromise:

game creation = engine;

software creation = libraries.

GML better reflects my needs and here it is my entry.

pretty nice challenging game having latency 30% actully helps a bit by slowing things down when things get to heated
the last level of the game is so unfair it just keeps on spawning things

HealliesGames responds:

The trick is to kill all the enemies, before the game screen fills with monsters.
It is not an infinite wave, after a while you reach the end.

This game doesn't have controller support at all.

HealliesGames responds:

Oh yes, I forgot:
By updating his policy, Google for some strange reasons, disabled by default the controller detection.

You should do something on the settings, or try Firefox / Opera to play the game.
Sorry for the incovenience.

oof very challenging game! but the concept of it was great!

HealliesGames responds:

When I was trying it, thought it was even too easy haha!
I appreciate it, thank you. :)

el juego me encanto, pero al terminar el juego no me dieron mi medalla

PD: ya me aparecio la medalla gracias

HealliesGames responds:

Try pressing X in the main menu. :) Thanks for playing!

Quite an interesting concept. When you lose "health" the game slows down (thus the Latency in the title). I enjoyed it, the controls take time to master, but I like it.

HealliesGames responds:

Mastering controls is the key to get an highest score, however I recognize through keyboard it's not the maximum of comfort (it's no coincidence that I put the possibility of playing it through a controller).
I'm glad to hear you liked the concept, thanks for playing and for feedback! :)
