About

You wake up dazed and confused, probably from the effects of cryosleep. No one can be seen around, but you soon start to find the bodies of your dead crewmen. The ship is adrift, and whoever – or whatever – killed your crewmates is probably still around. Syndrome is a sci-fi survival horror game that takes place aboard the "Valkenburg", an exploration and science ship equipped with the most advanced systems in the Novacore fleet. You need to find out what happened to your crewmen and do whatever you can to survive this nightmare. The enemies are powerful and numerous, which means that stealth and evasion are often the best strategy. You'll find weapons aboard the ship, but ammo is scarce and should be wisely spent. FEATURES ● Claustrophobic horror: The action takes place inside a spaceship. There are countless horrors inside, both physical and psychological. ● Fight or hide: There are weapons on the ship, but not enough ammo to take everyone out. Use them wisely. ● Engaging storyline: Nothing is what it seems. Something very bad happened aboard the ship, and it’s up to you to find out what’s really going on. ● Reactive enemies: They’ll follow noises and investigate any disturbances. ● Interactive scenario: There’s plenty of exploration to do inside the ship, and many things to discover.

Syndrome reviews and comments

A unique 10-12 Hour Horror Experience, not a real replayable as there are no Levels of Difficulty, New Game Plus or anything like that. The Horror is already easing in the first Round and fading completely at the second. The great Strength of the Title is the Staging and Atmosphere, but the numerous Bugs make the Combat System frustrating, making much of the actual Gameplay difficult to enjoy. The Story is flat, Running Burgers until the anti-climatic End is reached. The Stealth Elements are rather meagre and largely unnecessary, as pretty much any Opponent can be defeated with the Tool impacproperly. Only for Opponents You get firearms out Or just run. Defeated Opponents partially take advantage of after loading a Game Score, even the very big ones (yes, even if it was created after defeating them), very smart in a Horror Game with limited Resources. Given the current Price of 22 Euros, consider whether it's worth it.

A Classic SciFi Failed Horror Game!! About the Game: I'm just wondering at this Moment what were the Developers actually thinking about? This is probably the Most Miesest Sci-fi horror Game I've ever seen just Catastrophic, I know it in a Horror Game that you can hide or Run away from your Opponent and hide the Opponent just goes on without Showing that you u Nter a Table located, After that you can get up again and go further but here it is just not the Case, the Opponent apparently steers to the Player by Navigation, you Race away is miles away from away then You go to a Dark Corner where actually you no one else m See more, however, the Opponent can not walk past but fix himself directly into this corner and kill you while you want to run away. As soon as you miss out in one Stroke it starts to Bugen during which he gets out for the first time have hit you at least 2 Hits, you beat yourself to nothing happens. Horror Moments: Actually I expected that you can also experience these Jump Scare, Unfortunately, were Disappointed, at the Beginning you start in a Capsule so you wake up to you get out of the Capsule for the First time, and run through the Ship without a single Opponent Nevertheless, at a Later Time you get the first Wrench where actually does not bring anything, You can not fend off any enemy Blows with it, although you can block in the Event this Function is superfluous. I don't want to recommend the game to others but the Developers would have really put a bit more tired in principle they have of course also had it stolen from another game called Alien Isolation only they have here bit of Mround state a State rather Mutant Robots that are not even Creepy, but more to laugh at because they are more Like Clumping than Running.
