This is not a bad walking sim. The visuals are spot on. I think 13 floors worth is hard to justify without some narrative or challenge, though. Halfway through, I started wondering if there was going to be any variation at all.

Thanks for playing!
That makes sense. The monsters begin to change a bit the further you get down, Perhaps 13 floors is a bit too much.

Died on the final floor! Great particle animations and cool music, but wow, so crazy violent for a pico-8 game :)

@lassehonnens, yes 13 floors takes a long time for what feels like a quick paced game!

I missed the zombie part and was wondering how an elderly person ripped my character in half.

I agree that adding some story elements could add a lot to what's already there, which was still pretty fun despite being so straightforward. The shell and grenade drop ratio hit a sweet spot of constantly almost running out without actually running out (too often anyway). Halfway through, I learned to strategize by not picking up item drops straight away. There was some strategy in knowing when to use grenades as well.

All in all this is pretty solid for your first pico-8 game. It's maybe a little violent... lol. But at last you made them zombies.

oh wow! that's awesome!
I love seeing pico-8 game turn into full non-pico-8 games!
I'm gonna look into it, cuz it looks quite cool!
