Shadowgrounds

Shadowgrounds

Shadowgrounds is an epic sci-fi game that blends addictive oldschool gameplay and modern technology into an alien-battling carnage festival.

The game is a fast-paced top-down shooter similar to the Alien Breed series. Like the earlier game Death Rally, Shadowgrounds presents an anachronistic concept with modern resources. The plot of a monster attack on a space colony exists only as a thin justification for the action, monsters are plentiful and weapons large.

Shadowgrounds has an impressive weapon arsenal that lets you kill aliens in many cool ways. But that's not all! Each weapon can be upgraded three times with powerful modifications! Unleash the flames of the flamethrower's fuel trap, cause mayhem with the grenade launcher's poison grenades, slash and dice the monsters with the laser rifle's pinpoint laser, and many more!

Shadowgrounds uses cutting-edge realistic lighting and glow technology to light up the battlefield. Procedural texturing system enables virtually unlimited number of animatable effects such as water and lava. The lighting and the flashlight also affect some aliens' behaviour. Take advantage of that and turn the tide of fear against the enemy.

Shadowgrounds Survivor is the sequel to Shadowgrounds.
