This mini game was made in 72 Hours for the 72 Hours of Pixelation contest, by Krut, Delgneigth, who were drawing, and I. It came along some troubles and a lot of rushing/cutting corners at the end, but it is still an enjoyable game for a quick action.

You play as Gustav, a troubled mental patient escaping from the mental hospital that he has been locked in for 15 years. He only has a short amount of time to get out, before the hospital explodes. He must reach the top of the tower to escape. Fill up his power bar (in blue) by killing monsters quickly. When his power bar is filled up, time will be frozen for a short moment. Use this to your advantage to kill more enemies and escape the level with a larger time bonus.

Cursor Keys control moving left, right, up and down.
Jump: Z key
Run: X key
Slash: C key

Controls can be changed on the Options menu.

You made this in 71 hours. You must have had atleast 1 hours sleep. ;) Good for a short minigame.
Posted by ChrisB 5th August, 2003

Yes, this is good for a short minigame. Nice graphics, too, but it helps when you have two other people to make them ;)
Posted by Blake 5th August, 2003

Yeah, well we were all really slack on making it until the end, when the deadline finally seemed real.

Yay! I'm 5th on the scoreboard! ^_^ How come blood comes out of the ghosts when you hit a little guy?
Posted by Blackgaze 6th August, 2003

this is good, very good but the thing i didn't like was the first monsters. They are ghosts but they look a little odd to me

This is pretty cool as it is, but if it were made into a full game with multiple levels it would be incredible.

oops double review sorry :)
Posted by ChrisB 27th August, 2003

What I don't get is if you never gave a score higher than 7, how can you give it 8/10 overall? :P Go to your User Admin page and delete the review.

Who cares about me giving it 8/10 I sure dont :)

You have some definite talent. I'd like to see a game with this much effort put into it (a full game that is). Fun for a mini-game.
