Games / Codename Z: Incomplete Operation

About the game

The goal is simple: get from point A to point B in one piece while an army of zombies and trollfaces are trying to stop you. And like if it wasn’t enough, the facility’s automated security system is also your enemy! But don’t panic, the map is full of ammunition and medpacks.

You can discover this dangerous world in a top-down view, where lights play an important role. The flashlight becomes a crucial item, which can be switched on and off with the F key. In many parts of the map you’ll have to find your way in pitch black while fending off enemies. Luckily they’re just as blind in the dark as you are, but beware, if you get too close they sense you!

The game has full support for the Xbox 360 Controller! (or any other controller that either uses XInput or has the same button and axis binding)

The game was made as a school project, the task was to create a video game in C# under the .NET framework.
