Gave it a go!
14 captures was my best round.
No bugs. kinda fun, only for a couple of rounds.
Needs to have additional animations, more fast running people (only got 1 of them). Perhaps make the world larger and allow side-scrolling of the ship (in a smaller scale of course).
Long term goal, have vertical and horizontal movement with potential attacks from random citizens.
Just my feedback, and in no way meant to be offensive.
I cannot even create a pong game.

Thanks for the feedback, Jet!

I'm waiting on my animator to get back to me with the women's animations. Hopefully by this weekend's update!

I have more levels planned, with different locations and types of victim. I should have at least one done for the update on the 21st/22nd September weekend.

Interesting suggestions (larger world, attacks from victims)! I have some ideas along similar lines, and I'm not sure whether to add them as a set of later levels or a completely separate game.

Thanks again!
