Info over het spel

Retrovirus is a six degrees of freedom shooter which sends players into the depths of a computer on a search and destroy mission against an invasive virus. Retrovirus is being created by Cadenza Interactive, the indie studio behind the popular tower defense game Sol Survivor.


Players take command of an antivirus program, armed with the tools necessary to erase the virus’ very existence from the system. Movement and exploration are core to the gameplay, and players are encouraged to adapt to the demands of a world where free flight is the norm. Of course, the virus is armed to fight back, and first person shooter combat features heavily as players test their level of comfort with movement within the machine environment. Each player is able to customize their antivirus program with different plugins, allowing for a variety of approaches to a given situation.


The Retrovirus single player campaign focuses on the core story of the game, with the player’s goal being the eradication of the virus and the discovery of its origins. To defeat the virus, the player must solve puzzles, engage in dogfight-style combat, and explore the depths of the virtual world.


Retrovirus also features multi-player modes, designed to engage players’ social and competitive sides. Co-operative multi-player allows players to complete the campaign of the game with a friend, teaming up to restore the system to working order. Competitive multi-player will focus on the core of the six degrees of freedom shooter, hearkening back to the action-oriented shooters of the late 90’s and early 00’s.

Features

  • Discover movement within a six degrees of freedom environment, free from the limits of traditional gravity-based environments.

  • Customize an antivirus program, focusing on strength, speed or cunning, with weapons and utilities to suit a variety of play styles.
  • Join with a friend to remove the virus from the infected computer by playing the campaign in co-operative mode.
  • Compete against other players in a variety of multi-player modes, testing the limits of combat with six degrees of freedom.

Once you get past the vertigo, Retrovirus becomes a great little shooter that also resurrects an FPS sub-genre that absolutely deserves its new lease on life.

A very fresh and new concept for an FPS. However, do keep in mind it is horribly optimized and only runs on the best gpus from 2011 and onward.

IT IS HORRIBLY UNOPTIMIZED.
DON'T BUY FOR MULTIPLAYER, THERE ARE VERY LITTLE ACTIVE PLAYERS.

If you got past the requirements to play what you are left with is a fast paced, puzzle-solving, riff raff of a good time.

Graphics are old, controls are clunky, story seems outdated (get it?) Yet theres something about this game that makes you wanna keep playing it.

Retrovirus is a pretty fun game, I am not certain what genre I would call it, Adventure?, Mystery?, Action?, Shooter?, it can be all of those things and more, the single player is a good length and has a story that can keep you entertained, it's not best seller but its fun. and the multilayer, well i'm no expert, I was only ever able to find two or three player matches but I enjoyed myself there a bit as well. Overall I think its one of those game where you love it or hate it, I think its best too read up on the game yourself but I wish you luck and hope you like Retrovirus at least as much as I did.

A brilliant little game (although quite demanding on your PC) if you have the specs to run this game it's certainly worth getting

Pros:
It's simple, virus-blasting fun
it has a suprisingly in-depth Storyline (if you take time to collect all the E-Mails)
Combat is straightforward and easy to understand, same with upgrading and new weaponary
there aren't any forced tutorials, you're free to charge in guns blazing if you wish or to take it slow and be tactical
The game itself is quite amazing to look at, texture quality is good and the lighting enhances it if you can run it on High
Once you're past the vertigo and motion sickness from the 6-degrees of freedom, it's really enjoyable to control

Cons:
Certain objectives aren't very well explained
there are a coule of spelling mistakes and pronunciation errors that I've noticed so far (I won't mention them)
this is the biggie and, I can't stress this enough, This Game is TERRIBLY optimised , you need a Beast of a computer to actually get through the later levels when more and more enemies are sent at you, if you have a low or mid-range PC, Do Not Get This Game
when you first start going through pipes and turning upside-down, you'll get quite dizzy or confused, so give yourself time to adjust to it (apparently it has Occulus Rift support but I doubt that's a good idea)

Overall, a good game but it has it's downsides, the big one being the poor optimisation which made me quite sad when my PC started failing to Cope with the later levels :c
