Mayhem 3 (Or Mayhem Triple as I sometimes like to call it) is an action platformer with a large variety of settings, enemies, weapons, characters and events. Customize your loadout with the dozens of different guns or melee tools. Each action scene is a unique set-piece that promises something new or challenging, and there are many cut-scenes to break up and pace the gameplay.

Mayhem 3 tells the epic story of humanity's struggle with a force so brutal and bizarre that our only hope lies one random Mexican citizen; Mig Carter. He'll travel across the barren Mexican deserts to reach America, where the real threat is unfolding.

It's violent and has some swearing so disgress the hell out of it.

Actually this isn't going to be in GOTW since its a demo, but what I've played of it is really quite clever.

Though, I died when I fell down a hole and suddenly started at a completely different frame, where bunnies and cockroaches? would forever appear, with a helicopter saying "demo over" or somesuch.

no dice. i wont give this 5 stars and you can all hate me all you want, but its just not THAT good. yeah its got pretty graphics. diving jumps. and wall jumps. but they arent done THAT well.

first of all. the roll jump. unless you absolutely NEED it for a future part in the full game, its not needed.

second. wall jumps. annoying as shit to do. its a bother to have to hold left, space then quickly hold right and press space again, rinse repeat on some of the higher wall jumping areas. it needs improving. and the dive into a slow slide makes it diffucult to get onto oddly small platforms. it took me 15 trys to land correctly and jump up before i fell back off at one point after the giant bunny.

third, repetetive gameplay. if the full game doesnt have a shit load of more types of enemies. i will get bored like i got bored of the demo, after 10 minutes.

the only part of the game i loved was when the sky started flashing and the capsules started to crash down at the beggining. then it was just "moody soft music, bunnies with guns (some that kill you instantly? or maybe i only had 1 health and it only respawns you with ONE health -.-)

now the redeeming "qualities"

great enemy ai. picks up dropped guns and shoot at you. melee jump kicks. but they only seem to just follow you. meh. its better than most ai ive ever seen though.

the story. excellent so far. quite bizarre but hilarious.

all in all this needs quite a few tweaks for the final release.

i think it was in an article here i read recently that often higher ratings are becoming standard and i think a 5 is way to generous.

good work none the less.

anti-cecil, the rolljump makes you temporarily invulnerable. you can use it to get past bullets when enemies shoot you. i don't see why you think it's useless.

it's also the first 3 levels of the game, i don't really know how you can complain about the lack of enemies.

i didnt notice that it made you temporarily invincible since almost every encounter with rabbits with less than a shotgun i died.

i didnt say its useless its just not needed. it makes the game harder imo to play.

when you say first three levels are you saying its a lot? or a little?

all i said was it was very repetitive. i hope there ARE more enemy variations, cause it would suck with only a few standard bunny enemies and giant boss bunnies.

"O.k. So, I start up the game, pick new game, hit the first letter of my name and am immediately shot out the front door of the character's house to fly across the screen, smash to the ground, explode, and then be judged with three number cards... Oh.. Then a guy and a car fall out of the sky... I'm really confused. Am I missing something here?"

A debug key I stupidly left in the game

And aside from the mouse, obviously, the controls are perfectly customizable for those who've never played an FPS before in their life.

And circy where'd you fall through? There's no intentional bottomless pits in the game.

the wall jumping should be fixed its way to hard to do and its confusing too, and the 2x4 is too weak, youd expect a melee attack to be strong, but its useless, considering youve got infinite ammo.

also i really hate that you just made the 4x4 swing using script, it looks real stupid when you elbo is touching your face.

other than that it was fun

i dont think the ammo is infinite. the little green box behind the weapons gets vertically smaller. ammo? or maybe i just imagined that?
Posted by Dustin Gunn 17th August, 2008

the melee weapon is for layups and air juggling which isn't really necessary this early in the game

This is really well done.

I think there is a slight learning curve for getting use to the controls... but this is expected when you start playing a new game.

I've got to be honest I can't quite remember if I fell down through a pit or simply died, but either way I ended up skipping some frames to the end frame where the helicopter appears saying "demo over" and then bunnies appear forever.

Fan-freakin'-tastic. The set-pieces are absolutely mind-blowing. So when can we expect the full game? Ten, twenty years?

One bug, though: I died on the second level and respawned at the start of the third. Unless your intent is some demonic plan to reward suicide, I doubt that was intentional. Also, having to push in the direction of the wall to jump off of it is a bit needless, I think. If your character is already facing the right direction and he's next to the wall why do you need to push into it? It feels a bit fiddly.

This is totally rad! I love the little, funny things that can be found everywhere. There are some bugs, like when I try to give a player name with 'p', it screws up. Also, I'd prefer having the jump button as W.

Very delightful pack.

Really great game and fun to play! I liked the controls and the gameplay. Only played to the second level after the giant bunny so far and I'm wondering if there is any use to the money I get all the time?

I only have one complaint so far: please change the fact that you restart with only one health. It's really annoying playing a difficult part over and over again with just the same amount of health.

Btw great music too. It reminds me of Deus Ex and I fucking love that game

And I have one major suggestion: do bullet time! It would be an awesome effect and would make the dodge move more useful (in fact it's so fast right now that I can't really dodge anything without jumping into another crowd of bunnies)...

Great game, really... Solid feeling.

I can only echo what others have said really, wall-jumping controls annoyed me and re-spawning with 1 hp is no fun.

I really like the style though, so FINISH IT SOON PLEASE
Posted by Toadsanime 17th August, 2008

This looks really, really awesome.
However, as some of you may know, playing sequels without knowing of their origins slightly irritates me.

Is the first two really old games you've made in the past or something?

"This is totally rad! I love the little, funny things that can be found everywhere. There are some bugs, like when I try to give a player name with 'p', it screws up. Also, I'd prefer having the jump button as W."

You can go into options and change the controls

"One bug, though: I died on the second level and respawned at the start of the third. Unless your intent is some demonic plan to reward suicide, I doubt that was intentional."

Yeah I've been racking my brain trying to figure out why the hell this one happens.

As for the walljumping, having it automatically walljump if you press jump near a wall kept making me die when I implemented it, and I thought giving the player more control would be better, but I'll make it an option since there's been so much feedback about it.

If no mistake, HWA version right? It's runs quite slow on level 2.

Pretty cool, but the jumping puzzles are a bit annoying. The wall jumping needs fixing! It is really awkward.
Posted by Dustin Gunn 17th August, 2008

I guess that's a popular sentiment, I must fix!
Posted by Dustin Gunn 17th August, 2008

as for the health when respawning, I got talked out of saving that data at all, so I guess respawning with full health now
Posted by 3kliksphilip 17th August, 2008

After getting past that debug thing, I have to say that his is very good. Nice graphics, interesting story and AI, not that happy with the jumping off walls, I always forget to hold down the direction I'm holding onto when I jump (Feels unnatural)... but this game deserves a great mark- I mean, it's better than almost every other platformer on this site, ever!

To be more specific, Dustin, theres a bit after you kill the giant bunny where you have to wall jump onto a platform, but the trouble is that he does a belly slide off the platform. you have to kind of fudge it to be able to stay on the platform. Other than that there is just something unnatural about the control of the wall jumping.
Posted by Dustin Gunn 18th August, 2008

I've already changed the walljumping, but you can jump as soon as you hit the ground to prevent sliding off

I bet that international semi in the begginning was full of illegal immigrants headed to america...
Posted by AndyUK 19th August, 2008

Very polished. Fantastic stuff so far. I kept panicking a bit when the rabbits had guns which was making extremely hard for me to actually kill them.

I don't like how you have to hold shift to get your meele weapon out though. It would also be nice if it was a bit faster at clearing rubble especially if you're under attack at the time.

Then i warped to that level where the helicopter tells you the demo is over.

yeah this game is very very very nice but this is just the demo and is rather buggy so we shouldn't really be rating this... but i am anyway cos everyone keeps giving it 5. Having said that, this demo is better than most platformers here. Without the bugs and on the full game i expect to give it 5/5.

i suggest improving the control system a bit.. perhaps allowing for more use of the mouse like for jumping n stuff.
Posted by Codemonkey 19th August, 2008

This is really great but the dying and putting you back where you were is SO buggy, I skipped to the end like 3 times.

Posted by Dustin Gunn 20th August, 2008

Ok I fixed the 1 bug the demo had, removed the "P" debug key, changed the walljumping, made you respawn with full health, aaaand that's about it.

I really want to congratulate you on making this game so cinimatic, the way you managed to have floors breaking, and rockets hiting the ground to feet behind you, without any glitches at all. I love the place where I can pull out the uzi's, roll and shoot the peices of roof that'll kill the rabbits lol.

the controls DO suck a bit.. not the controls themselves but the fact that in this demo they dont necessarily stay on what you set them to. and you cant set any controls to the mouse buttons which is annoying.
Posted by Dustin Gunn 21st August, 2008

what do you mean they don't stay on what you set them to?

They read them straight from a txt file so the only way they wouldn't stay is if you're playing from the zip

Great game ! The wall jump is a bit too difficult (the tetris like stage becomes too difficult because of that...).
