Midnight Stalker

Posted by on December 31, 1997

You are trapped in a maze where bats steal your bullets, spiders stun you leaving you helpless, and progressively faster, stronger armed robots relentlessly track you down. Armed only with your gun, how long can you survive?

Inspired the Intellevision game “Night Stalker” and done purely as a way to do a little beta testing so it’s still a little rough, but playable.

The Hard level will randomly rotated any unplaced pieces every 20 seconds to make the puzzles even harder.
