afternoonstalker - A robot-killing game
In Afternoon Stalker,
you are in a
two-dimensional maze where you are attacked by robots that
shoot at you and that you must shoot down. You must pick up a
gun somewhere in the maze in order to have a few bullets to shoot.
Avoid the spiders and the bats, which can paralyze you long enough
for a robot to come and shoot you. The bunker where you start is
your only protection.
Use the arrow keys to move
and the Ctrl key to shoot in the direction you last walked.
You can also shoot in a fixed direction with the
keys (this is the same convention as in vi).
The Escape key pauses the game and shows the main menu.
The P key also pauses the game the same way.

Rule set #1 applies the original Afternoon Stalker rules.
Rule set #2 is slightly different.
The game starts with 5 robots instead of 3,
and the number of simultaneous robots increases more quickly.
There are only gray and blue robots, but they move slightly faster.
The number of bullets in a gun increases as the game progresses.
Bonus lives do not come as often.
Do not pause automatically when the window loses focus.
