Hostage Crisis is a retro-looking shooter where you storm an office complex in an attempt to rescue numerous hostages from bad guys. Destructive environments make things more interesting as you can place explosive satchel charges and throw grenades at walls, helping you to get to the hostages while taking out the enemy.

Definitely worth playing, but I have a few complaints:

* The time bombs are useless. They almost never kill anything on the other side of the wall, and they can't be thrown on the ground like grenades or remote bombs, only attached to the wall.

* There's no way to drop the bomb you have without detonating it. If you have a grenade when you need a radio bomb, you'll have to waste it.

* The gun seems to lag a little. It will keep firing for a few seconds after I release the mouse, or take a moment to start shooting.

* This one is an actual bug, not a design complaint: I was awarded "Total Victory" after blowing up a soldier with a bomb, but the description says to use a pistol.

Other than these minor complaints, it's quite fun. It's a good mixture of action and puzzling.

I've been enjoying this game for a couple days, but I cannot seem to wipe out those dang grenade launcher guys! I shoot them and hit them with grenades and they just keep on one-shotting me.

OK this game has officially become addictive. But there aren't enough levels! Where are some new ones? Or maybe an editor?
