Video Tutorial #2

Hello everyone,

Developer here! Today, I have created a new tutorial upon request from the community and players. This video shows "The Land In Snow phase 1" level where the criteria of unlocking the door is to collect 15 snowmen without which unlocking the door is next to impossible. This video tutorial will give you an idea where you can find the snowmen hidden under the snow. The door gets unlocked as soon as you collect 15 snowmen.

Here is the video tutorial for you:

Thank you for your patience! It has been a bit late to post this tutorial on Steam and I apologize for that. I hope it will be hugely helpful for the players stuck in The Land of Snow level. If you have further queries and want me to make more tutorials based on hard levels please feel free to let me know either in the comments below or you can make a new discussion thread. I hope, you are enjoying the game.

Play and Enjoy!

Thank you!

New Update #2 - V1.3.3 - Volume Control And Auto-save

Hello everyone,

I am glad to notify you that I have finally introduced some important features into this game with a little modification in the "Game Menu".

I have successfully added some of the great features which were missing in the previous versions of NightmareZ and special thanks to all the people who have provided constructive feedback and supported me to improve this game project.

Features Added in V1.3.3 :
- Added in-game Volume controls: This is a feature which most of the people asked me to work on. So, I have finally added in-game Volume Control in "Controls" menu. In this case, you need to press 'N' key to reduce the volume level and press 'M' key to increase the volume level. Moreover, the volume levels can be adjusted during the gameplay too. That means, you can control the volume level by pressing the same two keys even when you are playing the levels. Please note that, changes to the volume control will be effective for the current session only and it requires to be adjusted again when you run the game next time.

-Added Auto-save Feature: In the previous version, I have added save and load feature. But from now on, the game will be saved automatically at the beginning of each level except a few special levels where the checkpoint is easily accessible. You can collect checkpoint balls to save the levels too.

-Added Cursor key movements including WASD movement: From now on, you can control the player both with WASD controls and cursor keys. This feature has been added because some people like to use cursor keys for player's movement instead of WASD controls. Having both the features is necessary and hence, added.

-Escape button "Exit": The Pause menu has not been completely done yet. In the previous version, if you accidentally pressed "Esc" button while playing the game you used to lose all the gameplay progress. So, in order to stop this from happening, the game progress will be auto-saved even if you accidentally press "Esc" key to exit the game. That means, the game will be saved automatically before it takes you to the "Main Menu screen" in this version.

This is all about the latest version V1.3.3 which has been released today. However, a new version will be available with a capability of taking in-game screenshots and adding more options in the pause menu with some added features here and there. Thank you very much for your patience!

Special thanks to everyone who have tried out the game and your feedback helped me to improve the game. I hope that I would be able to add the remaining features very soon. Thanks for your continuous support guys!

Note to existing customers: You should get a new update notification in your Steam client. It is hereby requested that you download the latest version if you want "Volume Control and Auto-save" features to be enabled in your game.

Best Regards,

“NightmareZ is a platformer which is rough around the edges. Progressing through the stages themselves, with the player character’s majestic, if clumsy, movement is a blast. The stage pickups are placed deliberately and in ways which require experimentation to collect, rather than a linear progression of “Keep moving right.””

“A little action-platformer that shows a great deal of promise, its fast, frantic and all round pretty damn fun!”

“NightmareZ is a pretty good time waster. I would get frustrated with the deaths, but would be determined to continue on. It was a good frustration and I found myself laughing at myself when I kept dying to those scythes.”
5.4/10 – TICGN
