A downloadable game for Windows

An audio-only, Berzerk-like shooter for the second No Video Jam.


The arena consists of a grid-like maze of rooms populated by angry robots. Collisions with walls and robots are deadly, though touching a wall will make a power-up sound and give you a second to move away.

A beacon is centered in each room exit. The beacon for the correct exit emits an alarm. Follow the alarms to successfully traverse each level, or hunt robots off the main path for (eventual) extra points.

There are three robot types, from easiest to most difficult:

  • Dumbasses have minimal visibility range, and don’t shoot far or accurately. Level 1 is populated exclusively with dumbasses.
  • Jackasses have mid-level visibility and range, and shoot more accurately. The jackass is introduced on level 2.
  • Badasses have as much visibility and shot range as you do, and are far more accurate. Badasses begin to appear from level 3 onward.

Robots can sometimes shoot or collide with each other. If a robot explodes, a shockwave takes out all nearby robots after a short delay.

Killing multiple robots in a 10-second window grants a score bonus, indicated by rising musical tones. A 4-tone sound plays when the bonus window resets.

The level exit plays a three-tone signal when it is visible. Move within range to activate it and advance. You cannot advance to the next level if any robots are visible.

Hi, I can't get the game to start. When I try, it pops up with a command prompt window, then immediately exits. Windows 7, NVDA screen reader.

Replied to you on Discord already, but if anyone else encounters this, Windows 8.1 is probably the minimum supported version. Sorry.
