Untitled 2D zombie survival game

Ok, very early in development; but i have something! it’s very simple, an i recognize there are issue and a lack of features.
List of magicalness to be added:
Nice shiny graphix adjustments (rain, shadows, day/night cycle, etc)

W - move towards cursor
Shift + W (hold) - Sprint
left click - shoot (automatic gun)
right click - reload (no ammo count atm, initial mag is 5 rounds, total ammo is unlimited)

Damn, haven’t missed exporting these games

I will add that eventually (if i continue to develop it) i want to add multiplayer, voip, etc. However, it’s out of my range of knowledge, i wouldn’t know where to start

Here’s a quick demo:


Nice work on that soldier with a weapon, or did someone else draw the soldier?

It isn’t sprinting way too fast, the sprinting is fine :wink:
1 tip: move back the camera a bit more.

Thanks :stuck_out_tongue: , yeah, the soldier is actually a open source asset.

Camera will be moved back, all i need to do is make the window bigger
Also, i forgot to mention sprint is shift + W

Edit: ekk, i need to make a credits.txt

also, how does this look for the zombie

Make the skin greener. Easy fix.

Either-way, people deserve credit

Anyway, bullets now line up with center of the cursor! (crosshair)
(even though it isn’t visible :frowning: )

Another edit: i hate having to define for each and every frame where the bullet shoots from :frowning:

where is the Uplink rebirth

@Today on the back burner, lost progress due to a computer change over, and it’s ruined the development process for me

:frowning:: Wha-- Bu-- N–


@Lukas_Schuurman tbf, it was probably never going to be complete

Edit: Is it fair that the character can’t move when reloading if reloading only takes 1.25 seconds?

It’s fair, makes the game challenging :wink:

@Lukas_Schuurman Ok, thanks


  • many more animations (Idle, Reload and shoot) (Still melee attack to come)
  • “zoomed” out (scale halfed)
  • Sound!
  • Crosshair “centred” with shooting point (well, it seems like that, not literally how it’s done)
  • Bigger window! (although, it could be changed anyway)

(bullet isn’t rotating)

On created (or while shot button is down) -> Set angle toward Mouse.X, Mouse.Y

And if you want some recoil:

On created (or while shot button is down) -> Set angle to bullet.Angle + random(0,8) degress

Random values are to change of course.

btw. you can give to player 8 direction movement, disable “Default controls” and then in event sheet:

W is down -> Simulate 8Direction pressing Up

@iSenzo yeah, i’m aware :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s because of an effect, but i just removed it and it seems to be working fine (doesn’t add much value)
Thanks for the recoil though :slight_smile:

I actually hate the 8 direction movement, so i created it to “follow” the cursor when holding w, however, i do recognise there should probably be movement for “A”, “S” and “D”

Set “Set angle” to “No”, no more auto rotation and of course keep “Set angle toward Mouse.X, Mouse.Y” :stuck_out_tongue:
Any possibility of adding lightning, rain, reflections, grass and shadows? :wink:

@iSenzo egghm shadows, grass, reflections, lighting and rain? :frowning: damn the pressure is on (although, i reckon that would look REALLY nice)

What is the “set angle” to “no” in reference to?


Heh, what about muzzle flash, bullets falling on ground and blood particles?

@iSenzo STOP! you’re making me tempted to do it…

I need to find a decent set of animations for a good muzzle flash, i already looked into it.

Blood particles will come when you die (i hope)

Bullets falling… i’ll try… know a way? (de-spawning them may be a problem?)

However, grass, i need animations (again)
lighting i think is supported in construct 2, but i don’t know how it works
I would imagine reflections are hard
rain, i think i could do , but would require some magicness to make them look nice

See you tomorrow!

Shot, create another object (I recommend new object for fallen bullet), some rotations, a bit of physics and you’re done (I think)

No animation need, just simple one picture then animate it via Sine :wink:

It is but it sucks so you would make sprites, change their blending mode etc.

Almost there!


@iSenzo atm, the rain triggers on start of layout, i made a function to disable the rain(disabled group and destroys all instances of"raindrop", do you know how i would re-enable it

that rain looks like this is CS2D
