About

This is my Ludum Dare 41 entry!

My goal here was to try mix turn based and fast action. I drew a lots of inspiration from John Wick movie & gun fights :) This game is quite special to me as I only created it in less than 24h! Much happy.

  • new character skin,
  • the ability for you to grab enemies to use them as cover!
  • a new enemy type (strong big guy),
  • a better UI,
  • updated music & sfx,
  • an extra combat area,
  • balancing.

I have discovered that dead bodies damage cover and enemies behind cover, and that i can kick my cover and instantly run to dodge grenades

i finally beat it! this is an awesome game please expand upon this it has so much potential!

I did all of the waves with one mag.

Wait what? How? 馃槄

Since its the same enemies every time. I realized that if I had a human shield then I didn't need to waste a single bullet on them. I'd head shot and let them be killed instead of me. Also, lots of kicking. Lots of grabs and covering until the guys with pistols were stunned and the guys with bombs were firing on me with speed.

Well done!

groovy game.. I like the little touches of kung fu inspired sfx, human shield is a neat balancing mechanic, kept me at it for some time.

Really cool game! I loved how it managed to take turned based combat and turn it into something that feels extremely chaotic.

very fun game all it needs is checkpoints

Very interesting gameplay. I really like how you implemented the quick shot / head shot mechanic featured in the movie. Head shots do more damage but quick shots are instant and cancel enemy's attack (especially the grenade guys). Initially i thought that not explaining clearly to the player the advantages of each attack was detrimental to the game but now that i finished it i think it's better like this since the player is naturally going to discover them by die / retry. Plus, the game was made during a jam so obviously some choices were made here. Overall, i had a blast. The last waves are quite challenging but you really get this 'John Wick' feel and that really all that matters. Great job!

A great faced paced game with a good mix of difficulty 

(+1)

very fun game almost or probably is a puzzel game 

if I have one problem with the game is that you cant cancel a action which is really annoying since if you click cover on a box on the other side of the map  so you cant do anything about it

(+1)

Fun and not easy either, I like it

I am your Fan!! your Game So Coooool!! So Lovely!!

Fun little game that presents a very decent challenge. Loved it.

I wish there was only more 

(+1)

Great game but add checkpoints. A way to do this maybe could be making a variable that raises in the number when you beat a level and setting up a level restart for each number

(+1)

Cool game, but a way to start in side of the nightclub instead of having to do the start again and again would be cool

Small, but very addictive!
