Explore the evil research facility known as Helltowers and rescue as many prisoners as possible. Beware of the zombies, guards and other enemies that patrol Helltowers.
Left and Right Arrow to Walk
Up Arrow to Dodge
CTRL to Shoot
Shift to Switch Ammo
Enter to Use Elevator
Here are some tips from Will Harrison, the game developer, for the difficult parts:
- "Always shoot repeatedly and fast (especially with the Zappers).
- When you dodge, you can double tap the up key and it will always work.
- Save up HV ammo for the 2 lower levels (purple and dark areas).
- Don't waste EX ammo on Zappers (you'll likely miss and waste the few EX ammo there is).
- When shooting Zappers, wait till they get to their highest point and hit them twice.
- Use HV ammo on Zappers if you have any (you'll destroy them in 2 hits).
- If you can't beat a Zapper coming after you, walk out of the screen (if you can) and come back.
- EX ammo is useful if you're being attacked from both sides and you want to quickly dispose of one or both enemies."
If you follow these tips you should be able to clear the game in 3 or 4 tries :).
Escape from Helltowers is another cool shooting adventure game. The 3D graphics are nice. However gameplay is rather limited and moves are slow. But whatever! This game worth being played.
