Cheers for checking it out. I'll make sure to fix that when I get time.  Kind of ironic that it's that particular phrase haha.

You should be able to see it now.

I've had topics for troubleshooting and bugs, but no dedicated topic for feedback and comments.   So with that in mind, if you wish to express your thoughts on the game, please feel free to do so here.  

Thanks for the trying the game out.  Got some good ideas there on the cons.  I appreciate all support, it helps me get through projects but I will still take what you say to heart.

Ah man, thank you so much. I'm glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the feedback.  I'll hopefully come back to this one someday.  Needs a lot of work.

Good to know the difficulty is okay.  Thanks for the playthrough.  Very enjoyable seeing how peeps play though the game :)

Really nice playthrough and could tell you enjoyed it.  Thanks for checking it out.  More coming.....soonish I suppose?!      Takes me a while to get things moving.

Glad to hear, wanting to strike that balance.

Nice!

Was rooting for you to get to the final level. Thanks for checking the game out.

Thanks for the feedback and great that you enjoyed.  Definitely glad to hear feedback on the reloading.  Obviously, the game being very early in development this is subject to change and especially so if a lot of people are reporting the same kind of feeling.

More destruction is definitely on the cards, it's just way more work than it initially seems but I'll be doing what I can as it is incredibly fun to just blow everything up.

Some issues might be fixable with a few tweaks, so here is some guidance if you are having issues with running the game.  If you can't find a fix here, none of them work or the issue is not listed here or on the bugs post, leave post here.

  • General
    • Game doesn't start in browser - Most likely the browser is not supported.  The game has been tested in Chrome and Firefox.  The game may work in mobile browsers, but is not supported.
    • I have {insert name} light gun and having issues - I'm afraid I can't offer support here. Please refer to your lightgun's community/website for help.  The game is currently only tested with the Sinden Lightgun.
    • I'm having performance issues - This relates to the HTML/web version and will be fixed in the future.
      •  To mitigate performance issues, close all other tabs in your browser and make sure it is the only window running.
        If you have a device that has power modes, make sure it is in some kind of "performance" mode.

This thread is to catalog any bugs.  If anyone should find a bug they can see if I have already been made aware of it.   Minor bugs will be grouped up and sorted together.  Major bugs, such as crashing I'll try to get on asap.  If you do suffer any crashes, additional info such as operating system and graphics hardware will help with identifying the problem.


  • On Windows Edge and Windows Chrome browsers, if you select to hide the cursor, it instead shows as a black square. FIXED

Nice one, thanks for sharing.

Will do bud.   I'll try warning if you don't have a controller connected, or automatically switching to keyboard control scheme.

Thanks for giving the game a go.  Utter mad lad going for the keyboard controls :)  

I will try and improve them in the future, but for now it's so those without controllers can still play.

  • Camera jitters when looking at Nutlet from the front with keyboard controls.

Thank you, I'm glad.  Enjoyed watching your gameplay and don't worry, more is to come :)

  • Game save issues
    • Progress and/or options configuration not being saved - make sure you have write access to the directory.  This will vary on operating system, but generally try to extract the game to it's own directory.
  • General
    • Game freezes on loading - This is usually due to tabbing out of having focus of another window while the game is loading a level.  The game shouldn't crash and even if you get a "not responding" warning, if you wait it should carry on as normal once it's done.  The game should be able to handle you tabbing out whilst the level is loading, the OS just panics as it thinks it's lost communication.
    • Windows 11 - Game is untested on Windows 11, Windows 10 and Linux are currently only supported.  Sit tight for if and when any Windows 11 issues are addressed.

  • Stutters/hiccups in performance - Simply not yet fully cached all shaders used.  Will be fixed soon
  • Primary/Pistol shots don't hit enemies.  This seems to manifest after melee attacks. Still not hunted down the exact cause for this.

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
From memory, I believe you smack the hands then smack the head/torso.  It is probably woefully imbalanced though as I believe you get overrun by little skeletons if you don't do it quick enough.

I think basically, just farm up until you have stupidly high dps and you'll top it. :)

Either way, thank you for the kind words. I'm looking forward to getting back to this.

Damn this is soo good.  Best crate smashing simulator ever made. Okay okay, I'm kidding.  The game is seriously fantastic.  The graphics, sound and music are all on point.  It really evokes the retro feel of the PS1 without the jank.

Kind of feels like a 3-way love child of Resident Evil, Silent Hill and Dark Souls. Finished in 34 minutes, 2 secrets and with a C rank.  Took me way to long to figure out the final boss haha.

Only other thing was, noticed was on Linux, when enemies appear the sound cuts out.


TLDR: Loved it, just play it.

Added to bug list :)

Thank you for the detailed reports, really appreciate it :)  I've listed them above and will include them in the next update.

    • Mouse still showing in-game after tabbing out - Just tab in and out again or open the pause menu (escape key) and it'll recapture the mouse.
    • Game crashes on completing a level - Make sure you have downloaded the latest version.
    • Game crashes on exiting to the menu or restarting a level - Make sure you have downloaded the latest version

  • Moving while using a terminal will cause you to continue to move upon exit
  • Boss health display needs fixing - shows incorrect number of tentacles
  • Occasionally on repeated level restarts the game will crash. If you have restarted multiple times, it can also happen when loading the next level.  To mitigate, consider restarting the game.  This is a priority bug, and will be fixing ASAP (as of 17/09/22) Edit: Potentially fixed, will push update soon
  • Chainlink - enemies can't see you. Not exactly fixed, but redesigned the levels so that this isn't an issue that comes up.  These were intended to be a means to allow the player to see what is coming but really doesn't make sense that the player can't be seen so "kind of" removed.
  • Crash sometimes on level restart
  • Stairwell collision/teleporting
  • Level 2 odd lighting coming up stairs
  • Level2a room with shotgun, two enemies appear in that door instead of behind it.
  • Enemies popping in on level 2 and 3
  • Handrail collision  can't shoot through hand rails
    • standard railings
    • stairwell railings
  • Level 5 - Missing spawner eggs
  • Fix focus on options - can select main menu options by accident.
  • Level 4 boss repeats animations upon death if you tentacles are killed after


    • Tentacles making incorrect shot sound, should be laser not pistol
  • Elevator door z-fighting
  • Terminal will show both success and error messages if code entered quickly
  • Log spelling errors for "Weapons Lockup" and "Evacuate"
  • Missing collision
    • Level 1 & 2 vertical pipes
    • Blue barrels on level 2
    • Terminals
    • Medical cabinets on level 3
    • Level2a duct beside the regular exit elevator 
  • Level 3 door locked messages on empty cell and blocked/jammed doors - needs removing
  • Level 6 pipe showing through next room unintentionally.
  • Level2a locked alternate exit door message
  • Interacting with the elevator shows a message. In LowRes mode, the message is clipped.
  • Level3a
    • Pipes upper Unit 2 stick out to the next room.
    • Black rectangle on the ceiling of the green card room.
    • Ceiling of the small room behind the blue door is black.

Indeed, runs with absolutely no problems in Windows 10.

Gave the original a go without realising there was a Gold edition.
Had the original running with Wine no problems, this for some reason had issues with the sound library.  Wouldn't work with mono either, so hopped into Windows just to give it a try (Something I don't do on a whim).

Love all the different locals and the enemies.  Levels are kind of like puzzle.  You have a set load out and you get to learn how best to beat each enemies.  Best weapons, positions etc.

There's a lot of charm with this, lot's of little touches that show attention to detail and it's simply good stuff.  Really does capture the feel very well of the C64.
