House Hunting

Author Comments

I originally posted this game during the fall of 2000, but it was never submitted via the Portal until now.

This game was inspired by an incident where police approached a "suspcious person" (innocent black guy) in our neighborhood as he was about to enter his house. When the man reached into his pocket and pulled out his wallet, police mistook it for a gun and unloaded all of their ammo on him.

Your character will approach people at their doorsteps. When they turn around, you have a split second to decide if they are holding a gun, or a harmless object. If you kill too many innocent people, it's your ass!

Note the fun details, such as the ability to shoot out car windows and leaves from trees. This game is actually packed with tons of easter eggs, so you will never find them all. :)

I remember this!
I always killed the suspects because didn't understand English

Ok what the fuck? am i on drugs or is this real?

Fun game here

Well it was fun, made me laugh, very entertaining, great job tom, like the sound-FX aswell, how do you have the time. tom you seem like you are busy to be making games but I have to say this was a really fun game so nice job indeed.


Sad to say I didn't care much for this. It's mostly because it's too boring. You just have to wait too long. A shooting game shouldn't have that. It's weird how I could shoot the windows. You'd think I'd lose points for that.

The music is fairly nice. "Police Bike" is much better. Weird how this wasn't featured in anything. I assume you'd have the most control over it. You're still great.

Beat this in 2018. The trick is to keep your arm relaxed and not worry about Easter eggs.
