Earthlings were badly hit by the devastating meteor shower that hit the planet. However, part of the rain was crystals, which became a source of valuable fuel. When the crystals were over, the Earthmen found a way to teleport to the planet from which these crystals flew to Earth. People moved to this planet in considerable numbers, managed to settle down there, but when they extracted crystals, they accidentally opened the portal to an unknown dimension. The portal became the door for the monsters that captured the planet. Only a small number of people remained. They want to survive. And they are trying to regain control of vital objects.
You can play three characters. All of them have different abilities and weapons. Everyone has their own ways to fight for life and territory. A range of improvements allows you to acquire new weapons, sharpen the methods of violence and increase the stock of life. Ammunition causes more damage, resistance to poisons appears, there are clues about invisible monsters. Yes, it is useful for surviving earthlings - it's difficult to fight off monsters. Because they are everywhere and quite reasonable. This planet belongs to them already. Hundreds times increased insects and reptiloids, abundantly armed and perceiving people either as a forage, or as intruders. From mission to mission, heroes make their way through mountains of corpses, crowds of furious beasts and through territories that have become empty under the onslaught of aliens. And this constant tension is periodically replaced by exclamations of heroes: life is beautiful!

Shadowgrounds Survivor reviews and comments

Compared to its Predecessor, these are three Short Stories. In later Levels, the Fun Factor drops. If you like to run in a closed Room in a Circle, you can access without hesitation. It's not Realistic. Tactics are actually not present or possible. The Opponent reacts to Light (Flashlight) and Sounds (Explosions, Falling Noise of an Object). For me personally, the Replay value is low.

I think for 79 zent dar it is in the boprit should strike me 100%! Those who don't believe it should pull their demo and convince themselves! .Super Pysik by objecten!. Slightly Older Luk!. Class sound and absolutely Genius light effects of the Flashlight since it does not shine structured but after the Peg!. Cool weapons and monsters. Level system---------------------------NIGHT! Troz of all the great things, it is not easy to hope! And you should do it co-op! But it makes massive laune. Hahaha hardly finds a disadvantage ^^ great game ^^ "MapEditor" He is not the heaviest editor, I think even without a little Tutorial what would be Helpful!) Would make more people Level ev for the game! Please youtube Tutorial Who will check out the editor!

No real Review, more a small Workaround For those under MacOSX Mavericks: The Workaround is originally English, and was taken over by me 1:1. Originally posted by Xandr: I found a workaround For Mavericks users. It's based on solution for Penumbra Overture, which experience the same problem after Mavericks OS X update. Folow the next steps: 1st Start game normally using Steam. You will see launcher window. Setup all essencial options like resolution (you can't change it from game). Don't forget to enable sound. 2. Open Terminal application and run the next commant (replace USERNAME with your own Mac OS username): Sudo open/Users/USERME/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Shadowgrounds \ Survivor/survivor.app/Contents/Resources/survivor.app 3. It will ask Admin's password, type it and the game will start. I guess that means Frozenbyte Should only fix launcher to close this issue. Thus, the Game is at least playable because the Support is set based on age. Link to The Developer post [frozenbyte.com] To the Game itself: To kill a few Aliens in between, ists perfect. The Gameplay principle is ala Diablo, with fewer RPG elements and especially modern Arsenal of weapons. The Story is not the Bringer, but I think this Game never tried to break out of the Drizzle and Budget market anyway. But dull-hbly, it has always had its own Charm anyway.:)
