We just discussed your game on our podcast! Come check us out!
Episode 2: Shooters
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Year 3021. What the elders used to call Reality is now just a vague remembrance. Mankind has survived by importing every single conscious spirit into layers of quantum based virtual spaces. But men's pets have evolved into nasty ghoulish capsules and they are now preparing for the Great Invasion of the Layers. You've been sent to Layer 1 in order to clean their colonies , reach the Capital and stop the spread of these anomalies.
"Panic on Layer1" is a fast-paced FPS in which you will have to violently destroy colonies one after another, in order to reach Capstule Town and save what's left of humanity.

Great podcast guys ! Loved how you go in depth in the gameplay mechanics, it feels like you really took the time to analyze the games. Thanks for trying Panic on Layer 1, I'm really glad you enjoyed the game :) I'll definiteky check your other episodes !
THIS IS AN ENTERTAINING FPS GAME FORSURE.
Climbing my way up the leaderboards ;)
Absolutely love this. Wasn't expecting to play a random itch.io game for 6 hours. Honestly, if you worked on some of the textures and added some more to the campaign, I could totally picture this being a console game that people would pay for. Unfortunately I'm broke right now but if I could donate I would, excited to see the future of this game. Will likely be uploading videos of me trying to get the highest score possible.
Colony 10 and an infinite mode score over 1000 👌
Damn dude the highscore is getting pretty serious ! Congratulations to you and big thanks for your good words, I'm verry happy that you liked the game :)
Time for me to work on beating your score... Waiting for your videos to see if we share the same techniques !
Panic On Layer 1's all time highscore has just been beaten and goes from 343 to 458. Latest colony annihilated is now Colony 9. Contratulations to Bowtrix & Mr.Bell !
I had a lot of fun playing this game. To start with the controls where a little strange, but once I got used to them it wasn't bad. The music is great and energizing! The gameplay is fast and fluid and the potato men are cute and scary. Good job, and thanks for sending me this game!
Great playthrough, thanks for trying the game ! And congratulations for making it to Colony 7 :)
Cara, gostei muito do seu jogo, foi tão viciante para mim que quando percebi que estava jogando há quase três horas kkk, as explosões e o modo como o cenário é destruído são ótimos. Tudo de bom para você mano, vou tentar um novo recorde.
Hey Fleacoco! Are you interested in having this game used for student purposes? We run an online sound design program and our students would love to contribute their sound design to this! If it interests you, we could maybe work out something where you can update the game with their audio contributions if you like how it sounds. Is there a good way to get in touch with you? Would love to talk more on Discord or some form of DM online if you're interested in something like this. Keep up the good work! Really great stuff
Hi Ryan ! That sounds like a nice idea. We would need to talk a little bit in order to set how we could work though. You can reach me on Discord : fleacoco#4639
Funny Gameplay. No story behind, am i wrong?
This is a fun game. I really like it so much. Nice work on it.
Great playthrough man ! You went pretty far in the game, it was good fun to see you playing even if it was so sad when you falled off the map :)
Thanks for playing !
I definitely love graphics! Reminds me of Super Hot and Project BlockchainZ, 'cause of the minimalist aesthetic. Shooting feels cool, and that's the best for me. Keep working, devs!
Infinite mode playthrough !
2nd update of Panic On Layer 1 is now out !
Nice little game. We gave it a go.A note for other Youtubers: turn off the music,you will get a copyright claim!
Very nice video thanks for giving the game a go! I see you made a fair amount of money, sounds like you did great :)
Pretty cool game, once I remapped the controls it all handled well. Sometimes it felt like ammo crates weren't appearing at all, which I had to opt out and just restart sometimes because of it. I like the different mechanics, adding a jetpack, grenades, etc. It would be nice to have those from the beginning, just because the game is hard, so it's hard just to get to those mechanics, and I'm sure I haven't even seen them all. But this was fun, thanks for contacting me!
This is a great playthrough, thank you for trying ! Love the thumbnail too :) Quick tip, you can climb obstacles by double jumping in order to get the crates falling on top of them. Cheers!

Hey! Nice job, it looks interesting but a bug kept me from having a enjoyable experience.
-The Horizontal negative(-) axis and Vertical negative(-) axis default to 'q' and 'z' and don't update in-game if you change them from the configuration dialog.
Also, that footstep sound is annoying :p
Hi ! Thank you for trying the game.
Did you try modifying the inputs in the "Controls" section inside the game menu, rather than in the start window ? This should normally work - please let me know.
Also I'll do something about the footsteps :)
