The world needs somebody to make things better and rebuild what has been lost!

According to scientists, the probability of an onboard computer error is only 0.0001%, but we had to be the ones to get that lucky ticket!

This is a dynamic action game with unstoppable shooting against superior enemy units and a limited movement area. The game is done in three-dimensional with low-polygonal models that add charm and create a unique style. From a bird's eye view, we follow the adventures of astronauts who find themselves on the Earth of the not-too-distant future, which has survived the post-apocalypse.
Solve the mystery of the crystals and break down the wall of misunderstanding!

In Brief:
Please read the above introduction for the back story.

Mistake has cute low poly and colourful graphics. Run around a restricted area collecting crystals and avoiding the wildlife that constantly re spawns. You can pick up various power ups that recover health lost from the animals that have attacked you, speed up power ups around the arena that double your movement speed, double damage power ups, as well as double the rate of fire from your weapon. and increased bullet spread where you fire three bullets at the same time and new weapons which can be selected using the number keys. I've only found one extra weapon so far, a pulse laser pistol. Survive for a couple of minutes on each level to progress to the next level. There is no level map, but you'll find a continue button in the main menu that you would think allows you to continue where you left off, but when I rebooted the game after dying on level four, it started me from the very beginning, though it appears to keep some of your previous score, but not the one where I managed to get to level four. .

Lose all your health and you'll have to start from the beginning. Watch out and avoid circular glowing area that appear randomly on the arena; this is where animals respawn.

You have to pick up seven crystals to complete the quest. I've not succeeded in finding seven crystals yet, so don't know if that ends the game or starts a new level?

Yes, I finally managed to collect seven crystals over two levels and it just starts over on the new level. After two levels you change to a watery environment. I died after the fourth level and decided not to carry on as it's after 3am here and I need to retire. The under water levels become harder because not only do you have to avoid the various marine life there's lots of trash being thrown into the sea ; which if it hits you, you lose some health. Also every second level the animals get larger. trying to get you. I did take some more screen captures, but had forgotten that I'd turned off the screen capture program while playing one of my old favourite games (Battlefield Vietnam, because it uses the same key binding to take screen captures; whenever I took a capture with Ashampoo running, it would drop the game to the tasks bar, which was annoying, so I'd closed it down, but forgot to boot it up when I re started todays giveaway. Too late now, but I will say, the levels do look different and there are lots of new animals to see. When you shoot an animal, you don't kill it, you send it to sleep. When it sleeps it disappears. Only to respawn later.

Between each new environment (seems to be every third level, you'll get a few pages of a story board to introduce the coming levels.

You can see a video of game play HERE.
We've had similar games to this previously (the names escape me). With 26 different language options, this game should be open to a lot more people than the usual games we get here, or for that matter many of the big name games and well known indie arcade games.

The game play does become a little tedious (IMO) after a while, but it's an ideal coffee break game that'll take you out of your reality for short periods. You have unlimited ammunition for your weapons, though you start with just the one and pick up new ones via the power ups you'll find scattered around each level.

Notes on Security

I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found zero hits from 59 antimalware engines. You can see the results of the scan via the link below:

This is really a Mis-Take.
The menu points "Leave" and "Play" do not work.
So you can neither play the game nor leave it.

software-nutzer, If you find the in game interface does not respond your display scaling may be a bit high. Try to reduce the scaling to 125% or even 100% I found that some games with a high amount of scaling settings may cause some games to not work correct or not launch

This game has pretty good visuals for an indie game. It's very much playable and I love seeing the cuie little animals. But if there is one thing that turns me off is the killing of actual animals. However these are animated and the developer took care to not include graphic violence in the game as the animals just lay down and disappear off the screen. (The animals looked so cute in the game fyi. )

The shooting style of the game reminds me of Smash TV with the gun allowing you to shoot in all directions via the mouse and the WSAD controls of the game.

Hi Buzz, I thought I recognised it, lol. Didn't realise it was only five months ago; seems a little too soon to give it away again?

Here's part of my my original comment made at the time.

The Game:
Mistake is a cute looking action shooter where you land on a future earth and have to fight off numerous attacking animals, You get three lives with the ability to pick up new lives via the heart shaped power up if you lose any. You have your trusty weapons that sends any animal you hit to sleep. You can pick up new weapons on your travels such as a a futuristic pulse laser pistol to keep you safe. Fight off these animals while exploring the post apocalyptic world of a future earth. Collect crystals and various power ups that increase your movement speed as well as your firing rate and others. Each round lasts two minutes . Survive to the end of the level to move to a different environment with different creatures to send to sleep. If you see a circular patch of light on the ground avoid it because it signifies a spawning animal/creature.
In short coffee break sessions this is actually a reasonably decent game to play and is quite challenging as well. I've not managed to pass the first level after several attempts so cannot say how many levels are available. It's definitely one I'll be keeping and will endeavour to play some more later today so that I can update this short review with anything else I discover.
