A downloadable game

It is 2020. It has been 2020 forever. It will be 2020 forever more. You must escape 2020.

Collect all 44 keys from the rooms of 2020 and find the exit to escape. Your task won't be easy. There are monsters roaming the many rooms and they aren't looking to be your friend. Blast them before you become their dinner. Oh, did I say they have acid for blood? Well of course they do, this is 2020 afterall.

Use the joystick to run around and shoot. Watch out when entering a room - you'll only get a second to avoid any monsters that are close by.

The game is available to play for free, but small donations are most welcome. Happy new year 2021, let's hope it's a good one.
