EnterTheGulag

by

SquarePegStudios' first title 'Enter the Gulag' is a permadeath shooter with a focus on fluid physics based combat within the scorched gulag caves.  Enter The Gulag, infiltrate all hostile spawners and blast away the hordes that awake within the Gulag. It is necessary to master timing and physics in the fully destructible caves if you wish to survive and achieve  'Victory'. 

Good luck in there soldier!  #action #retro #horror #arcade #shooter #survival #permadeath #dungeon

So many fixes, and all the audio re-done.

Nice job. I think that your game is cool. I would recommend you set up a full-screen resolution setting because I have a 3800+ pixel monitor, and it makes my windows very small. However, I loved the game, and I would like to play it more in the future.

I actually love it. I killed everyone but 3 stuck enemies. It did not take their hp anymore for some reason. I hope you update your games in future.

Mechanics Level Design
Hey, comrade. I loved playing your game again. I see it has more enemies now. I would recommend you place fewer enemies in the same area and create more maps, so after finishing one map, you would be able to go to the next map with more difficult enemies.
Also, I recommend you create a page on such a website like "Itch.io." You will be able to post updates in real-time and make a development log for others to see. Additionally, I would be able to subscribe to your blog updates and play new versions when you do so( if you want, of course.)
I made a video about how I played your game this time. I hope you check it out.

I did not put a dislike for your level design. It just said me to tell what needs most work. Lol. I like how your levels look like.

Game Graphics Tutorial/Learning Curve
I need more of an idea of what im suppose to do once im thrown into the game. it was hard to tell if i was damaging the enemies. You made me realize i need a way to exit out of the game. Can i only shoot while im charging? that was unclear. I did like the graphics where the game is going seems cool, just needs to be clearer to the player what the goal is.

If you have time to try my game i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Thank you yeah the game is early I will add more structure and build a narrative to give the player more guidance when they're thrown in the game. Yes you can only shoot in a charge so theres a timed cock of the gun you start, when you press right mouse, and then the ruler zipping sound informs the time till the gun becomes uncocked and needs recocking to shoot. Sure I'll check it out.

Animation Controls
So, I like the idea, but there needs to be better controls and the rotate point on all of the enemies needs to be at their center instead of wherever it is now. It seems to be in the gun of the player character. This means he rotates inconsistently and can get caught in walls very easily.

I like the enemies and the destructible environments, so that's a really nice touch. Same with the reload animation. Those are good, so as long as the controls are improved and given a little more variety in what you can shoot, I think this'll be a great game.

Mechanics
Shooting with weapon feels really weird, I don't really understand why I couldn't shoot while charging a little longer. Shooting became a deal breaker for me, so I didn't play for that long, but you really need to work on it

i can change that its designed how it is purposefully to make shooting more skill, timing, and physics based than holding in a direction
