Frantic Killer

At a Glance
  • Generic Company Place Holder Frantic Killer

The instructions for Frantic Killer are short and to the point: "Shoot in the head. Shoot the Grenade. Don't Waste bullets." Ah, the sheer essence of all the very best games.

Like the instructions, the art work in this Java shooter is equally devoid of frills. Stoner rock loops play in the background adding an intensity that belies the fact the characters you're shooting at are only slightly more developed than stick men. The characters' heads are nothing more than circles. Even dead stick men tell no tales, or get other people's promotions, especially when they're shot in the face.
