The zombie project of finally-done-ness! Features online and local scoreboards now.

Click on a sleepy student with the left mouse button to throw a marker at them and keep them awake. If you catch them early, you get extra points! Don't throw anything at students who are awake or you'll lose points. Click the right mouse button to reload. The longer the class goes on, the faster the students fall asleep, and you can't reload in the dark, so be sure to keep a full stock.

If more than one student falls asleep at the same time, the game is over!

Be sure to hit powerups with your markers to get upgrades like a bigger ammo box, the ability to throw three markers at a time, and slowing down the rate at which the students fall asleep. You cannot throw markers directly at powerups.

A giant thanks to Matt Boothman for the pixel art (if it looks bad, it's something I drew), Hempuli for some help with programming, and Kevin MacLeod for writing and putting free music online.

Suggestions welcome, but not necessarily put into action. For this iteration. I have other projects.

Is that detention?

There is no books on the desks.
Posted by OMC 3rd March, 2010

Nor is there a door in the room. And nobody's breathing. And you aren't fired for throwing markers at students.

Good point though.

Thanks for your feedback on the project page.

The door is behind the teacher, and he gets fired when more than 1 student falls asleep.
Posted by OMC 3rd March, 2010

And the books are invisible! And/or it's detention.

I love those hilarious graphics by Boothman. And the music... it's just so darn perfect. It was pretty fun, but more powerups would've been nice, like rapid fire markers or an emergency alarm like in the original (or a squeaky toy. )

Overall I thought it was pretty darn fun.

Can't play on my laptop, AV is flagging the live receiver.mfx as malware-genericA. Retarded Software!!! Not yours OMC my AV
Posted by OMC 5th March, 2010

What antivirus do you use?

Course I guess it wouldn't do any good to report it since the live receiver is outmoded.
