REL Games has announced the release of Deadhunt, an addictive first-person arcade shooter (FPS) game, available immediately for USD 19.95.
The undead hordes seemed endless. Thousands of zombies and skeletons surrounded the last bastion of humankind. Many have fallen in Earth's final battle. With grim determination, the last warrior moved forward into the mass of bones. Without hope, without mercy. The day of reckoning has come. Survive as long as you can, kill as many as you can...
Remember those super addictive games from the past where you have to survive as long as possible against endless hordes of monsters? The longer you stay alive, the more perks and bonuses you get. By collecting items from slain monsters, you consistently develop your character.
Deadhunt will remind you of those good old games. However, it brings a brand new level of game play to the genre. Unlike the old 2-D top-view style implementations, Deadhunt is a modern first person 3D-view game using all the power of modern 3D accelerators.
The game features an outstanding arsenal of firearms. Player can wear pistols, automatic guns, shotguns, machine guns, grenades, etc. Monsters usually carry swords and halberds, but they can choose from 20 different weapons. There are 50 different monsters divided into 3 main classes (zombies, skeletons and bugs). The models are very realistic. You can, for example, shoot off the sword-carrying hand of a monster. Crippled creatures will pursue you, trying for a knockout with its other hand.
In addition to 40 missions in 4 episodes, you can choose from two different game modes: "Survival" and "Greed". In the "Survival" mode, you simply need to get as many points as possible by killing monsters and gathering items. In the "Greed" mode, your score is zeroed if your character dies. You have to stop the game in the moment when you feel that death is inevitable.
The demo version of Deadhunt can be downloaded by following the appropriately named tab above.
