You must get to safety, escape the mutant mosquitos of madness using your jet boat and super shooter.

Game was made over an hour and a half using construct 2 and paint.net
Output is HTML 5, included in the zip is a minimal webserver so it will run offline.
Just run the rungame.bat to start it up, in internet explorer no less!

Webserver from here: http://code.google.com/p/bareboneswebserver/

added Online version (exactly the same, just hosted on my webserver)

Made For: 
An event

I found it strange that

I found it strange that there is no visual indicator of progress besides the MILES counter ticking off.... It's off-putting that the riverbank is static, BUT, the way that the mosquitoes are left behind in your wake when engines are engaged sort of gets around that... it's really quite a bizarre effect. I like that.

It's also great that you can just stay put and shoot... playing the game out in a survival mode (which is how I first played the game, having neglected to read the instructions.)

I liked it.

Yea, you should've seen it

Yea, you should've seen it before I made the mosquitos get left behind, it was very odd feeling. Given more time and better artistic talent with paint def would've helped the motion look better. I should've put a score counter in, the basic code is already there. Also proper levels instead of just hitting play and magically at the next level.

this reminds me of the fly

this reminds me of the fly swatting game in mario paint, even though i can't articulate exactly why
