About This Game

Deadfall Adventures is an action-driven first-person shooter, spiced up with elements from action-adventure games. Become an adventurer, hunt for treasures, explore unknown regions of the world and rescue the damsel in distress from the clutches of enemies, both earthly and not-so-earthly. Join James Lee Quatermain on his journey across the globe!

The Story

The year is 1938. James Lee Quatermain is a man of many talents, yet holding on to money isn't one of them. James is an adventurer by trade, just like his legendary great-grandfather Allan Quatermain. And he knows how to squeeze money out of this famous name of his, while at the same time despising it. Despising those who believe his great-grandfather's tales of the supernatural and those who make fun of them alike.

Accordingly, Quatermain isn't all too keen on escorting Jennifer Goodwin, an US agent and former colleague of his, to an Egyptian temple structure in order to retrieve an ancient artifact - The Heart of Atlantis. Neither does he believe in the reputed invigorating qualities of this artifact, nor does he care the least that a division of the Ahnenerbe, the Nazi department specialized in the occult, is after The Heart as well.

But life has its ways of changing one's perspective. Quatermain soon finds himself part of a hunt across the globe - from the stormy deserts of Egypt to the icy depths of the Arctic, and all the way to the steaming jungles of Guatemala. In long forgotten temple structures the thrill of the chase awakens the true adventurer in Quatermain, as he and agent Goodwin strive to be one step ahead of the Nazis and the Russians, one step closer to obtaining the Heart of Atlantis. And deep in these temples, where age-old guardians awake from their eternal slumber, James soon learns that his great-grandfather's stories are not as crazy as he had always believed. For all things live forever, though at times they sleep and are forgotten...

Fair idea, mediocre execution

As a game, DA is a fair one. It's probably not going to be one of the titles that you will remember with nostalgy 10, 20 or 30 years from now, but it's not horrible either.

In terms of game concept, the main shortfall is its lack of originality: there's not a distinctive feature that sets it apart from other titles, not in terms of mechanics nor progression, or characters. The fact that the game is inspired by the H. Rider Haggard novels (the same that inspired Lucas/Spielberg for Indiana Jones) makes the game feel like a knock-off of the glorious franchise from the '80s. There's the fedora, the rolling rock ball chasing you, the ride on the mine cart, the female sidekick, etc...

At this point I would have still given it a "thumbs up" though: afterl all, not every single game must be ground-breaking and innovative. However the execution is also unimpressive:
  • I played it on "hard" (the max level available) on both combats and puzzles, but neither were much of a challenge (and I'm just an "average Joe" kind of player).
  • A couple of times I walked behind a rock/tree/wall only to remain trapped behind it, or having my character bouncing up and down and not moving anywhere.
  • Sometimes clicking items in an order that did not reflect the programmers expectations (e.g. during the briefing at the agency) simply made impossible to make any progress, obliging me to reload the last saved checkpoint.
  • Body animation is rigid and definitively sub-par relative to mainstream titles.

I should also mention that I played DA on a linux box (64bit, brand new nVidia card with proprietary drivers, CPU 8 cores, 16Gb RAM) and the port is of beta quality at best. In particular there is some issue with shader compilation, so that even on my machine (which is quite top-end, hardware-wise), just to boot the game requires ~3 minutes.

In-game transitions between different segments of a map are affected by the same problem, although at a much smaller scale (5-10 seconds of waiting). This is acceptable while roaming on foot in the map, but it totally breakes the experience in fast-paced transitions like those in the mine cart run (basically you are left with a fixed screenshot and the music background, and when animation resumes you are much further down the railtrack than when you last were playing.

Again: the game is not horrible. It's "ok", but the world is a big place, and I would rather recommend something else to a friend.

First, let's get one thing out of the way: this is not an Indiana Jones clone. Indiana Jones was himself based on and a tribute to Allan Quatermain (H.R. Haggard, 1885) and Professor George Edward Challenger (A.C. Doyle, 1912). And the protagonist of this game, James Lee Quatermain, Allan Quatermain's great-grandson, has a completely different personality (and a couple of jokes in the game point out those differences).

But the feel, the mood and the ambiance are the same, so Indiana Jones fans WILL enjoy it.

The good:

When Lucas created Indiana Jones, he was trying to recreate the feel of 1930s action serials. This game succeeds in re-recapturing that feel and it's the main point in favor of this game. The scenery is beautiful and even the ceilings are worth admiring (not to mention that they also sometimes hold clues or things with which you can interact). The plot is unoriginal, but still engaging. The puzzles are logical and well integrated in the flow of the game. There's an interesting selection of weapons and they feel well balanced. You can kill an unarmored human enemy with one or two bullets, but they can return the favor, so you can't play this game as if you were Rambo. The journal, a very obvious copy of Henry Jones' journal, is not interesting to read, but it is very useful. Sometimes it just provides a hint for a puzzle. Other times, it's a key part of the puzzle and you can't solve it without consulting the journal. A nice touch is that the foreigners you meet speak in their native tongue, which makes it feel more authentic.

The bad:

The game is so linear that you might not notice a difference if they put it on rails. Backtracking is impossible because your entrance is invariably blocked every time you enter a new zone. I can't see this game having a lot of replayability. It uses the lazy, antiquated, and much hated checkpoint mechanism. Sometimes, the chekpoint is so far back that it can take 10 minutes to replay the part leading up to your death. Movement and shooting are ok, but in almost every other part of the interface, it feels so much like a console port that it's practically a slap in the face to PC users. You can only scroll back and forth between your weapons; you can't select the one you want directly. The POV is very strange and gives you the impression that you're only 4 feet tall. This feeling is exacerbated by the fact that you're unable to jump on a crate that your grandmother could jump over. The jumping is so sluggish, in fact, that it's more irritating than useful. There are glitches that will let you get trapped between two objects and your only option is to restart from your last checkpoint.

The acting is a bit on the campy side, but not so much that it ruins the game.

But for all the little irritants, this is a fun little trip into an Indy-esque world and I still recommend it, though not at the ridiculously high full price.

One odd thing: the optional Allan Quatermain revolver that comes with the Deluxe edition is worse than the default Webley; it's just prettier.

Two suggestions: (1) don't swap your basic revolver for a better one you find. The basic revolver has infinite ammo, your new one does not! (2) If you're so inclined, you can change one of the ini files to give yourself infinite ammo for all weapons (instructions are on the web). A nice side-effect is that you end up keeping almost every weapon you find (you can usually carry only two), but you occasionally get stuck on one of them until some random event in the game clears the buggy state and you can switch weapons again. It's a fun way to run the game a second time.

Personally, I enjoyed the experience that was Deadfall Adventures, because this game is meant for people who are fans of the Adventure/Fantasy genre, but with archaeologists.

Sadly this means not everyone might enjoy this, as this follows the usual "Get to the artifact before the badguys get to it and use it for world domination" cliche. Also, since the game is focused in the first person, some gamers might expect alot of good action in a first person perspective environment, but I will say that the shooting bits of the game are pretty generic, along with the usual cliche armies of Nazis and Russians (yes the two most cliche kinds of badguys in shooters are in the same game together.)

In my opinion, I did not mind the cliches as they were exactly what I wanted and expected from the game, because the game does take place in the eyes of an archaeologist, and I always like adventures involving such a profession. This game does it's best to recreate the kind of Indiana Jones like adventure we expect in a game involving archaeologists, so I understand why the shooting sections seems generic, because the game wants to focus more on the actual adventure and not just drown it in FPS heaven... which can be a bad thing if overdone.

I heard a bunch of people complained about some of the puzzles in the game, saying it was either too confusing, too straight forward, or the hints of the ingame journal seem too vague. I played through the game myself and only once did I have to look up a walkthrough for a puzzle, turns out that certain puzzle I was stuck on was super simple as all I had to do was shoot a lever. Some puzzles in the game did seem confusing at first to me, but after some thought and looking around I did actually figure out what to do, and the journal only seemed very vague to me just once in the game, which was at that one super simple puzzle I mentioned. There was indeed some simple straight forward puzzles, but I felt these puzzles were a simple relief to the bigger and more complex puzzles I encountered previously. Overall, I felt the puzzles were fun and it felt good just to finally solve each one.

My only complaint in the game is character animations in the cutscenes. Characters move awkwardly in cutscenes, which reminded me of how bad the character animations in the game Dead Island were in cutscenes when I used to play that.
Other than that, I pretty much enjoyed myself with the rest of the game.

My favourite part of Deadfall Adventures was the very cool and well done minecart chase scenes were done in the Mine level of the game. That part of the game made me feel very nostalgic as this seemed to be a clear reference to the minecart chase scene in the film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

Sadly I could not try out the multiplayer portion of the game, since nobody was hosting anything. So I shall skip this part of the review since I was late for the party.

Overall, I enjoyed this game. I really liked the adventure it let me experience, as I also had alot of fun with the characters, even if our archaeologist hero seemed awkwardly animated in cutscenes along with everyone else. I got through alot of fun puzzles and moments in the game, just feeling the nostalgia of older adventures touching my heart with each step.

Now, I recommend this game to people and fans who enjoy adventures starring archaeologists, travelling, exploring temples, avoiding traps, solving ancient puzzles, and recovering mythical and genuine artifacts for fortune and glory. This game is not as bad as Metacritic says on the store page, as I feel it deserves more, because the game is based for a certain kind of audience who would enjoy this, no matter how cliche the things in this game sound. I missed playing a good adventure starring an archaeologist in the 20th century, and that is exactly what I got to play once again with Deadfall Adventures.

Thank you Farm 51 for giving me another adventure to play. I hope the next adventure you guys make will be a successor to Deadfall Adventures, because you guys deserve more than that cruddy 53 out of 100 Metacritic gave you for it.

Played it all the way through. A nice little Diversion. Nothing ground breaking in gameplay or story but still very entertaining. I have to say that the puzzles fit in well and the environments are often very beautiful and well done.

Definately worth a play through, although there won't be much here to bring you back once you've beat it. Looks like another case of crammed-in multiplayer that no one asked for forcing the single player experience to be shorter.

I will only comment on one aspect of this game, the stupid save system, the person (for want of a better word) that put a checkpoint autosave in a game with exploration as its basic gameplay feature, in a game with traps and instadeaths needs to leave the game industry, I hope your company took a bath on this game and you learn from your lesson.

Bugs - check, both as enemies and the glitchy bad sort
Fun Quicktime events -check
Novel FPS platforming - check
Instadeath - check
Sparse and inconsistent checkpoint savesystem - check and doublecheck
Mandatory secrets - if you want a fighting chance later on then yes check

On the plus side it's larger that the sum of it's parts. Like, you could be jumping from platform to platform to reach an artifact, fall of and instadie because...water is deathjuice...and find yourself back 10 minutes and a platoon of enemies when the game decided to save. So that's a bunch of previously mentioned parts, but the agrevation is larger than the sum of it.

This game contains this direct quote:

"Arctic Nazi Submarine Mummies? Any other time that might be unusual"

And it's fairly typical of the game. I'm not sure if it's just bold-facedly dumb or working on at least some level of irony.
It's definetly not 5 star game play and the writing/ voice acting is pretty atrocious. But it's fun!
Imagine Uncharted had a baby with Indiana Jones. You've got Deadfall Adventures. It's worth keeping up with the gameplay for the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ly funny story. And vice versa.

Worth a play if you can pick it up cheaply enough.

o.k, first i must say that the graphics of that game are really splendid, you got there some fine views... the other things like the plot or the voice acting and puzzles are o.k but not more then that, anyway the importent to me that would drive me to give this game 10/10 points, is the joy that finally someone is doing the good fun old indiana jones games style but with updated good graphics and all, why is everybody always doing all those sad and rotten zombie/ horror games? why don't make a happy and good-feeling-leaving games like this game or ps3 uncharted, that were so enjoyable to play... hope someone high there is reading this review and will do something...

This game is enjoyable and fun. Has some bugs (don't try to wander off from the path because you can get stuck), but overall it is OK. If you want a light-weight Indiana Jones adventure, I can recommend this one.

This is by far one of the worst Linux game ports ever! The game has a nasty aim bug, apparently you can fix it when you disable mouse smoothing, but that doesn't seem to work for me, so aiming in the game is sluggish and a pain in the butt. Not to mention the occasional hang ups. Nordic games has really messed up the Linux port big time and maybe they should consult Feral Interactive or Aspyr on how to port properly to Linux. Nevertheless, the game performance is good and it runs fairly smooth until you actually have to aim and shoot, that's where it goes down hill. Too bad, this game had potential, but it's definitely not worth 49,99 bugs. If you can get it for 10 or 15 bugs that's acceptable!

If you're into single player adventure games this is for you. If you're into Co-op campaign games, look elsewhere. This only has survival co-op and a very bad one at that. It takes a whole clip to kill one enemy, and this was on easy mode lol. I bought this for the co-op, but there is nothing listed about the co-op aspect of the game on the store page. If only I would have waited or done some more research, I feel like a noob. If I didn't pick this game up for real cheap, I would be very upset at myself lol. Instead of adding a "funny" button to reviews, they should of added a "Maybe" to the recommend buttons. 40 dollar pricetag? No way.

Way better than the critic reviews in my opinion. I bought it for $4 on Humble Store and was pleasantly surprised by how fun it is. Basically a low budget Tomb Raider in first person, with some hilariously bad voice acting. Grab it on a sale for $5 or less. 6.5/10

Well I missed this game when it first came out and thanks to an online buddy for turning me on to it! I'm having quite a bit of fun with it. Nordic Games have a bright future, they are still rough around the edges a bit and certain areas of this game could've been more polished (voice-acting being my biggest complaint). The core gameplay keeps me playing through and it has enough variety to keep me entertained throughout thanks to scenery changes and the different types of enemies. Yes, the combat could be a bit better but I really like how the guns feel and sound quite authentic.

If you see this game available at a reasonable price and you are a fan of action-adventure games (i.e. the new Tomb Raider reboot...which I thought was amazing and the Uncharted games) this game is right up your alley. Being a fan of Indiana Jones does help a bit too! :) Forget the awful Alan Quartermaine movies from the 80's though... although this game's voice acting isn't top notch it's still better than those movies!

The developer listens to the community (just look what they did with Red Faction G! They totally ripped out GFWL and have put a lot of time and effort implimenting community suggestions and the game is now better than ever. The reboot of Painkiller they did was also well done although I wish they'd do a completely NEW title for the franchise and make it great to get recognition.

Well to sum it all up this game is a fun romp (even the multiplayer is decent) and I'd most certainly recommend it to any FPS fan who doesn't expect AAA titles with every game they play. Play this game knowing it could be better but enjoy it for what it is! Nordic Games have a bright future indeed and I'll be keeping my eye on them for sure.

This is like the "Sky Captain: And the World of Tomorrow" of videogames.

A genuine pulp-adventure, but ultimately flawed in many aspects. However, if you can appreciate the good things it has to offer you will have a fun time with it despite it's flaws. Beware though that this game is tetering on ♥♥♥♥ and Average, you will only enjoy it if you have specific tastes and a lower threshold for mediocrity.

This game has really great atmosphere, a pretty decent amount of variable but simple puzzles, and some really well made unreal engine 3 maps that keep the adventure from becoming too stale. Also there are plenty of forked pathways to find hidden treasure and it seems to be a little different everytime you come upon one.

What's average is the gameplay. It's just another one of those FPS games with Call of Duty-itus. Boring linear paths, regenerating health, flat battlegrounds for the most part, aiming down the sights to be able to hit a target, etc. However, something about it feels a tiny bit worse than most generic call of duty-itus shooters.

What's really bad is the voice-acting, A.I, cutscenes, and the overall assets. The music is really bland and a half ♥♥♥♥♥ rip-off of uncharted or something. Voice acting is bad but not in a fun corny way. Gun models and sound effects are amatuer, in fact there are many amatuer UE3 mods that are even better in those regards.

I would buy if you are a huge fan of Indiana Jones or Uncharted type things because the atmosphere is amazing in those regards, and if you are an FPS ethusiast who can even enjoy the slightly below average FPS gameplay.

This game is very buggy, but in singleplayer at least, all the bugs I've come across have been innocent, charming ones, like ending up with a handheld flashlight with your tommy gun instead of the gun mounted one it should be, so it looks like you have 3 hands. Also, the cutscenes, AI, and voice acting aren't very good, but no worst then most budget games of this style of gameplay.

So with all of it's problems I will recommend this game (when it's on sale) to two groups of people, people who really, really like Indiana Jones, The Mummy, or anything similar, and people who just saw one of those movies or whatever and want a simple first person shooter to go along with it.

Deadfall Adventures is an exploration-oriented, first-person adventure game with some shooting and puzzles, including puzzles that involve shooting and shooting sequences that require solving puzzles to survive them.

The story is a typical Quatermain-style adventure - while it won't win a Hugo, if you like punching Nazis, shooting Commies, immolating mummies, or applying dynamite to irreplaceable archeological treasures, there is something here for you. The fighting sequences are mainly creative and well done - I enjoyed them more than, say, Bioshock Infinite's. The puzzles are generally straightforward, but they establish a nice, relaxed pace between the high-tension action segments. I took about 20 hours to play through the single-player campaign - I attempted to collect most of the optional treasures, at least the ones that were semi-obvious, along the way. "Normal" difficulty combat was perfectly doable with a gamepad - if you're using a mouse, I'd bump it up to "Hard."

Thanks to The Farm 51 and Nordic Games for porting this to Linux - I played the complete game on Ubuntu 14.04 x86-64.
There are a couple of technical issues, but I'm not sure if they're Linux-specific or not: Load times are massive, over 5 minutes for a "cold start"; the gamepad mappings are odd - "Jump" and "Use" are mapped to the same button, so you need to hold LB to interact with things (or perform mêlée attacks), which simultaneously toggles your flashlight.

Overall, I would recommend this game to fans of the genre.

This is one of those bad games that I personally enjoyed for some reason. And I do mean bad.

First up, the price. I got it on sale for $4 USD, do NOT pay more than that.

Second, I've noticed a silly argument on it being based on a book series vs. ripping off a movie series. It is based off a book series that also happened to inspire Indiana Jones (some), BUT it also does borrow from Indiana Jones. It doesn't "rip it off" but it directly references Indiana Jones on multiple occasions and clearly draws inspiration from the movies. Which isn't a bad thing! It is based on the book series but also inspired by Indiana. I just don't even know why its a discussion but it is, and I just kept it going haha.

LOTS more bad stuff; Graphical glitches, frame rate drops, downright silly character animations, plot holes, plot jumps, invisible walls, places to get stuck, clunky puzzles to get to areas our adventurer could clearly just leap or climb to, mindless AI, and more I can't recall. But worst of all is the silly saving system. Checkpoints that activate after killing certain enemies or triggering certain puzzles. Rather annoying on a game with hidden side treasures and traps that insta-kill. Upon death it reloads you to the checkpoint and you gotta get all the side stuff again. There just happened to be a few long distances with high chances of death between a few checkpoints that made this a fatal flaw but for the most part the checkpoints do come often enough. Another time I killed a boss with minions still running about and it triggered a cutscene that when over had me standing right in the middle of the surviving minions. You can read all the negative reviews that elaborate on all the problems and more I didn't mention.

I guess I should mention that despite the bad animations, graphical glitches, and frame rate drops, this game does look pretty damn good overall. And then also, I only play single player games and didn't even attempt the multiplayer.

In the end though, I had fun. I really did. This game has some sort of weird charm to it that got ahold of me. Maybe it was the over the top adventure, or the cheesy one-liners, or the puzzles that actually took thought, or a little bit of all of it. It was a fun casual game that took just over 8hrs to complete. I just simply had fun. And you might too! (If the price is right of course!)
