  • Do the villagers ever spawn out the open bottom door in a later level?
  • Camping out on the door and eating villagers feels nice, a high risk high reward play. Maybe I'm just bad at the game, but I never got more than 3 villagers at a time at the door. It would be nice to explicitly tempt the player, by having the seeker deliberately stand at the edge of the map for a short time.
  • Maybe combine that with multiple doors? You already have one visible. There are two other houses that you could use.
  • The stutter when you eat a villager feels bad. I know you need to slow down the vampire when eating for balance, but maybe animate the stop a little more? A two frame animation of the vampire nodding her head down to simulate a bite would do the trick.

  • I can tell you've put a lot of polish into this, but the gameplay is not really my cup of tea.
  • It feels like trogdor.
  • The graphics are top notch. Really, really excellent.
  • A vampire game should have blood. Using a poof for the villager death animation is awful.
  • A vampire game should have blood. Dead villagers should bleed when they die. A pool of blood can't be worse than a poof.
  • A vampire game should have blood. Maybe adapt the vampire's death animation for the villagers, so they faint from blood loss?

I really liked your game, It actually looks like a real NES title and the difficult setting is pretty good.

But there is something that bothers me and that's the time limit, it's probably something that you implemented to add stress to the player but you should really consider adding 10 seconds more at leasts. There were times when I died by time limit just before reaching the goal.

Waifu aside, this seems like a real game that could've been made during the era you're going for and included on a 1000 game compilation cartridge. This can be a compliment if you want it to be. In that capacity it already stands on its own, although an extra enemy or some equivalent to the Pacman fruit wouldn't go amiss. I like the hunter's AI.

  • As always your title screen pixel art looks really nice.
  • I game over'd on Night 4 due to running out of time. I think you need another way to scale the difficulty as the nights progress (although I guess this is just for the demo).
  • I'd be interested to see how the game would play with: way longer time limit, 2+ enemy dudes, only 1 villager girl at a time, and some way to affect the movement of the other characters (e.g. lure the enemies away while you trap the girl). Or something. Just more a "stealth game" compared to the current "frantically mass leech hordes of girls".
  • You've really captured the classic pixel art aesthetic well.
  • I can't really tell what the enemy dude is doing when he catches you. It sort of looks like he's holding something up but I can't tell what it is... maybe it should be a cross?
  • The girls really like running across the bridges towards me at the start.

It's very bare right now, but this reminds me a lot of various old Commodore 64 and ZX Specturm games, mainly Castle Wolfenstien. With more levels and maybe an Evil Otto to spice things up, this could be a cool callback to that era of simple games.
