Z and X again...
A lot of developper using z but its in another place in european keyboard layout. (its swapped with Y)
At least an option to change it, or an alternative binding like (A and S).
Yeah, turns out Central Europe uses QWERTZ rather than QWERTY, which is used in North & South America, and Western/Northern Europe. Sorry for the inconvenience! :)
I think the "syrian" is missed down from the title. The refugees are all men (no womans or childrens), they destroy (avoid) checkpoints and going until they die. (Do you feel the similarity)
About the game: its a nice concept. Not too hard, and the 1,2,3 are better then Z,X,C buttons.
Well, you as a player destroy the checkpoints, and you're actually from Earth. All the refugee does is escape ;)
This game reminds me Metroid, in a good way.
But the controls are horrible. Okay, there are 3 preprogrammed choices, but if we can choose our controls it would be the best. The basic controls are a bad choose. Why always X and Z? Only in american layout this two button is next to eachother (in hungarian eg, its swapped with Y), and why shoot is righter then jump?
The game lagged for me, and I didn't know its the code problem, or the flash plugin started to play jokes again...
The backstory (I give up playing after a 15-20 min) is not bad so far, and for a ludum dare its enough. If you ever upgrade this game to made it more playeble it will worth 4 or 5 star, but until is no more then 3 from me...
