Metroidvania Game Jam Entry

For best experience read the instructions and tips before playing! :)


Welcome Agent! Once more we need your help. This time to eliminate a very dangerous individual - a scientist that is trying to develop a WoMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction). A bomb that inflicts the worst of all damages - makes everyone infinitely hungry. You are our only hope. 


Important!

Critical bug

Please bear in mind that the contains some bugs, one of them is quite critical. Sometimes after death the player does not respawn. The game is saved after you enter each level - in case the screen goes black and player does not respawn restart game and select "Continue" from menu. 

Which version to play?

If you are Windows user it is recommended that you use the downloable version. Saving is not fully optimised and the game is having quite a lot of sounds which even with good internet connection lags it sometimes. Also when playing the web version it seems some sounds are missing completely. 

Recording the gameplay

Feel free to record and share the recording of the gameplay :). 


Instructions

[WSAD] - Movement

[Left Mouse Button] - Shooting

[Q] and [E] - Changing weapon (when available)

[R] - Reloading 

[F] - Interacting with environment, picking up items

[TAB] - Using first aid kit (when available)

[M] - Map and time counter

Tips

  • Save your ammo as much as possible
  • Check achievements in the menu - this will help you to determine your gameplay style
  • Utilize shadows - when you are hidden you inflict massive damage
  • The peaceful achievement is really hard to get especially if you try to get the careful achievement at the same time
  • Remember there is no pentalty for death so you can also go full berserk! 
  • There are all together 5 weapons. Top 3 weapons are "not that easy to find". Having all of them makes the game significantly easier.
