This game just looks awesome and well made for a doom clone an awesome job but does feel weird using the space button to lock on other than the RMB but it's alright i hope to see more of this.
Snap the Sentinel - Episode 1
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Conrad Ocean was once the most powerful shark below sea level. As heir to the Ocean family fortune, he had fame, influence, and practically anything else he wanted. That is, until that fateful day when he was exiled from the seven seas. Bitter and vengeful, he began to use his fortune for evil. Soon he had built a business empire above ground, complete with skyscrapers and factories -- the perfect means to poison his former home with toxic muck! His robotic minions have helped nearly complete his worldwide monopoly, but one tough turtle dares to stand in his way.
Enter Snap the Sentinel! Snap sets off to rid his home of Ocean's mechanical scourge and set the world back on the right track. Are you ready to raise shell?

Thank you guys very much for this game! Thats amazing! Me with my friend really enjoyed of this!
such a great game, works beautifully on delta touch with a controller
I love this game! But, in the results screen after beating a level what do I press?
The latest versions of GZDoom completely redid how the results screen works, which introduced a bug where you can't proceed on the results screen. We're working on a fix for this, but in the meantime using the version of GZDoom in the Full Download works as a temporary measure.
This is fixed in the update we dropped today -- Any button will work! You'll want to grab the Full Download once again :)
This game is amazing!
Can i run this in the mobile version of GZdoom
thank you SeventhSentinel, very cool.
Awesome game! Consider nerfing the big blue bots so that they have to reload every once in a while or add more cover to sections with them (otherwise, their spam is pretty hard to avoid)
Hey, first off, excellent work! Just want everyone to know that if you have Smart Autoaim in GZDoom set to "Only Monsters", kicking cans (in v2.2) won't work. Took me a while to figure out haha.
are there gonna be future updates for co-op?
This is one of The Best game in itch.io right now. Everything in this game was good. The Story was good ( could have explained a bit more) , the music also fit into the Game, the Graphic perfect, The Controls were very smooth, which I like cause, that's make me enjoy gaming so much. I give it a 10/10. I can't wait for Episode 2 to come out. I recommend everyone playing this Game ASAP. I made a little video if someone is interested. If you liked it let me know in the YouTube comment. Thanks
i thought the initial version was already rad, but this update makes it like extra rad
Hello, i wanted to ask if you have a 2d or 3d picture of the main character. If yes can you pls share it? Thanks :)
i love this game
Really Cool game i really like the mix between the Old Cartoon style and 3d maps. but the reload sound gets a little bit annyoing after a while.
I am on MacOS, and I downloaded it, and it showed up in my downloads as a strange file, anyway to fix this by re-naming it or anything else?
Here's what you need to do to run Snap on Mac:
1. Download Just the IWAD, which should be called snapgame.ipk3
2. Go to https://zdoom.org/downloads and download the Mac version of GZDoom (the blue one on the left)
3. Copy the included app bundle to your applications directory
4. Open Finder, then press Command+Shift+G
5. Enter ~/Library/Application Support/
6. Create a folder there called gzdoom
7. Move snapgame.pk3 into the gzdoom folder
8. Run GZDoom -- If you are prompted to select from a list of games, click on Snap the Sentinel and press OK
You should now be playing the game. Whenever an update for the game is released, just replace the old snapgame.ipk3 with the new one from Just the IWAD and you should be all set. I would like to note I am not a Mac user myself, so I won't be able to provide any further assistance. Good luck and have fun!
It was a really fun game, reminded me of the old doom games, and can't wait for the sequel!
So...This game is amazing! I noticed the game has multiplayer. How does it work exactly? I found the Host & Join Multiplayer files it's just that. Whenever me and a friend tried it, we never succeed. Let's say for example, my friend and I live in different parts of the world or we live in the same country but in different areas? Does our computers and wi-fi have to be on the same IP address? Or is it more than that?
You need to make sure the port you pick is forwarded. The default is 5029.
I've only played the first level so far but I gotta say I'm hooked, like Doom meets Megaman meets the Ninja Turtles with Contra guns.
Excellent game. Short for 10 levels, but punchy and action-packed.
Simplicity was definitely leveraged here for a more arcadey action experience, but I do hope you expand on the mechanics at play in future episodes/installments. For example, the lack of jumping and crouching was an obvious limiter to force the player to deal with projectiles on the same plane, but I've always hoped to see more FPS titles that take more advantage of jumping and sliding with attack patterns that encourage it.
Alternatively, using the kick as a reflector - or even absorber - for projectiles could create a number of interesting options for the player. Those early robot sentinels fire constantly enough that it's extremely difficult to cross them up, but timing a kick to create an opening could add an extra layer of challenge.
Maybe something more could be done with the weapons too...being able to hold an offhand or having special altfires...but I could see that one bogging down the simplicity of the game without adding too much to the experience.
Really fun, plays well, and is really good in general.
this game is just amazing. good music, fun level design, and a lot of replayability thanks to the secrets and difficulties!
my friend can't join for some reason, how do i fix this ?
Wait Snap is a turtle i thought he was a bird
This was a really good game! Thank you for making this! 😄
Very fun, the spreadshot is my favorite powerupp in the game.
Really great shooting game! I Liked the cartoonish style when reloading the gun!
This game is in my Top 5 of the Week!
Take a look!
Reef Skyscraper was absolute hell,
Please let me know if I made any factual errors or blatantly missed out something huge. I might explore the other features and make a second review.
I didn't realize I forgot to make the slime at the end of the Easy/Normal path hurt the player. Thanks for mentioning it! It's also worth noting that though the game jam is called 7 Day FPS, it has very loose rules, meaning we were allowed to take as much time as we wanted to make the game -- so we started two weeks early :)
keeps saying this. dang it
Script error, "snapgame.ipk3:defcvars.txt" line 1:
Unsupported version 221 (220 supported)
Sounds like an out-of-date GZDoom install, not sure what system you're using but make sure that you're up-to-date. If you're on Windows, the full download has a compatible version already.
I'm dearly enjoying making custom maps for your conversion! I love the arcade style of it with doom's pace! I'm trying to make some faithful maps how I can, did y'all have any particular philosophy towards escalation of difficulty or enemy placement? I'm mostly goin on the ol' doom mentality.
Good game, quite some fun!
Just one question...
...Why are you obsessed with making Snap drop the F-Bomb?
I mean, I know it's for the "Very rude" mode or whatever, but... Really?
snap forever (map)
this games kinda short. im here to fix that! i made a level thats "infinite" once you get to the end you will die. thats intentional. its so i can make the enemies respawn.
salts' reply here is based on the original post:
(so i've been working on pro-longing the experience by using the mapping config, (no, im not trying to use zone builder or something stupid.) and how can i make a, for example, a robot respawn? if i cant, in the next update, could you add that feature? thanks!
edit: i have gotten around this, but it would be cool if respawning enemies was a feature. if you're interested in the map i was making, download it here. if you die at the end, dont worry. its intentional. since i cant make enemies respawn, its a way of making them respawn. have fun!)
Hi, it's cool seeing people already interested in modding :)
I can already think of a few ways you could do this without me needing to add anything, but based on how your level looks, I would use an ACS script. ACS scripts are how all of Snap's maps do most of the advanced level changing. You can make one for your map by opening the "Script Editor" window in Ultimate Doom Builder.
The "SpawnSpotFacing" function lets you spawn any object at "Map Spot" things. You would place the spot thing, give them tags, then use the function to spawn robots in at all of the tagged spots. The script could repeat the action on a timer using a loop & delay, or happen when you step on a line, or when you activate a switch.
Don't really have room to explain further than that, but here's some resources you could look at to learn!
Absolutely loved this game! Small yet well packed with content - challenging enough and very satisfying! Waiting for more updates.
oo o a ah
friendly doom version do be looking kool
Just finished playing through this: great work! Mixing quake/doom style movement with megadrive music/sfx/visuals was an inspired choice! Definitely going to try out Sonic Robo Blast now.
Amazing quality, awesome gameplay. Now that’s what i really wanted to see. Good work!!
me: why do i like this game so much?
my brain: because you play srb2 and like run 'n gun games
