Official description

Shadowgrounds is an epic sci-fi game that blends addictive oldschool gameplay and modern technology into one big, nasty alien-battling carnage festival. The game is played from a top-down third person perspective that gives you a better view of the battlefield and allows tactical use of weapons. New tactics become useful as your arsenal is upgraded to even more destructive weapons!

Upgrade your Weapons
Shadowgrounds has an impressive weapon arsenal that lets you kick alien ass 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!

The Monsters will Freak You Out
Keep your cool and enjoy the thrilling atmosphere. Realistic lighting creates detailed shadows that make you jump out of your skin. But the lighting and the flashlight also affect some aliens' behaviour. Take advantage of that and turn the tide of fear against the enemy.
