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...

It's okay with a hefty sale.

The graphics are pretty decent in the game, almost every thing else is pretty cheesy and mediocre. Though for 5 bucks it's entertaining enough to make it worth your money. When playing the game you see the potential it has, but it has been brought down by under par voice acting and dialogs with weird pauses during conversations and a very cliché story.

There are also a few bugs in the game such as accidently pressing a wrong key (T) where your character becomes frozen and unable to move, you have to reload a checkpoint to fix it. You can also find maps in the levels, but no key to bring up the maps and look at them.

And in general the gameplay and game mechanics is really not what you expect when you look at the nice graphics. It is just so under par compared to the graphics and the pretty detailed texturing. Shooting in this game is plain bad, your accuracy (unscoped) has little to do with hitting the AI target or not, it's unpricize by design. The AI is pretty bad too. instead of you going in to cover and shotting at the AI tactically from a dfistance you can just go beserk and run up to them and shoot them in the face from 1 meter away. And there are dozens more thing I could sum up that is either completely missing ((mini)map for example), or lacking and under par.

The game is a lot like Uncharted, but then clearly made with a much lower budget and a worse story.

Verdict: 68/100

Got this on sale for $5, you can't go wrong with this one for that price! Had just as much fun playing this as I did watchin the old cheesy Allan Quartermain movies, King Solomon's Mines and Lost City of Gold.

This game has some potential to be an amazing game.
It hasn't been done perfectly so like me you will probally have to ignore some stuff to enjoy the game.

Felt like the movement wasn't smooth specially when you are running, perhaps also some fps drops.
But as I said you look past that lil wierdness and then you enjoy the game.

Well I really did have fun playing this game, it's not that hard and solving the puzzles ingame isn't that hard either but it's fun. I had 12 hours gametime so I was happy with that.

You are a treasure hunter and you must find several pieces to, because it's what you get paid for do your job.
I don't wanna spoil the storyline so thats all the info im giving you.

The only downsdide of this game is the Multiplayer, nobody is ofcourse playing it and if you manage to get a group to gether and play it online it's kinda laggy, not fun as you will never 100% this game!

Like I said the game is fun, look past it's flaws, enjoy the storyline and have some relaxing fun.

Pros:
- Fun Indian Jones type adventure
- Super cheesy dialog = Funny
- Inexpensive (5 euros)
- Decent graphics
- Runs on Linux

Cons:
- Glitchy (example, I often see a reflection of myslef on the ground which makes it impossible to see where I'm stepping)
- Multiplayer is dead - No one is playing this game
- Hasn't been updated in ages and the Linux version is still in Beta (with no hope of a final release)
- The puzzles were not well thought out - they are either too easy or the solution is not clear at all (and you just somehow manage to solve them).


Overall: If you can pick this up on a bargain sale, it's worth it for the single player. Just don't expect any support from the developer as this game has already passed it's development phase.

EDIT: After getting almost to the end, the game stopped launching entirely. As there will be no more updates for this, I would recommend stayng clear of it.
