    Super Shotgun Deathrace - qrunchmonkey - Competition Entry

    In a dystopian future ruled by zombies, you'll have to rely on your superior human reflexes to survive. Press X or Space to jump, use the arrow keys to move. Good luck, and don't get bitten.

    Uses Flixel 2.5 and Flixel Power Tools. Music made with Garage Band for iPad. Sounds generated using sfxr and my lungs. Edited in Audacity.

    Also, I'll be posting a timelapse of the whole 48 hours (minus sleepingtimes) - stay tuned for that.

    Fun little platformer, and I just kept taking the boxes even if they never gave me anything. Since it's quite fast paced but precise, I would recommend having a slower max fall speed, that way it wouldn't be so hard to land the jumps between zombies.

    I love the jokes. "you found 50 shotgun shells"^^

    I found it really fun ! ^^
    I loved how you mocked the theme a bit.

    It is a nervous and speedy game, and the audio fits the game perfectly.

    Great entry for the LD !

    Ha, this one was comedy gold. Loved the taunts, great work!

    kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. I think the only thing you could have done is make the key to skip the end game screen something different. I kept missing it! Also did that screen have more jokes on it?

    Hehehe. Nice twist, nice theme subversion, and I had fun dodging zombies for a while. The jokes totally make this. The controls are a little twitchy but it still manages to be fun. Good work.

    Man you got it man. Your timelapse is plain awesome. Your community effort in all is awesome. I liked your postmortem and all.
    The game. Pure genius. The massive brain messages, the crate messages. The pace. Everything is great. I loved the humor. Sadly I am just too bad to win this thing, if it is even winnable, dunno. But I loved it very much.
    This is pure gold here.

    I clicked it expecting A) Shotgun B) Race C) Death?
    I found a nifty platformer instead.. it was fun.. I finished it thrice, once in the bottom route and twice and the upper route .. the lower route is pretty challenging.. I enjoyed playing this game a lot. I think you did something in 48h that most games can improve on, you actually made the game balanced and tweaked the gameplay to the point it feels right.

    Haha, good one ;)
    Love the polish stuff like crate and zombie messages and the sounds. Not too easy.
    Solid entry!
