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

Summer-Rain enters the house to find everything
inside looking a lot like an Egyptian tomb. Startled,
she spins round only to find a Mummy breathing
heavily while the world beyond the porch is the
interior of a Pyramid.

Before she can scream, you rush to her side, dressed
like Indiana Jones sans hat and jamming a weapon
from a bygone era up at the Mummy's chin. Firing
point-blank, the Mummy dies as you turn round to
check on Summer-Rain.

She's hysterical, screaming that she came home
early from classes to spend quality time with you,
and here you are, playing another game that has
fallen to the wayside.


Summer-Rain is adamant now, her silky hair
looking very frazzled from the stress of your
digital adventure taking over reality again. You try
to explain that this is simply the game's immersion,
and that it's really just a simple first-person shooter
at its core with some complex puzzle elements.

She's scowling now, your beautiful flower of death.
Crossing her arms, she angrily says that in the time
that she's with you, she knows all about your habits
with 'immersion'. When she opens her eyes, she's
not surprised in the slightest that the entire living room
has morphed into an Arctic tundra, with you at the steps
of some ancient, forgotten temple entrance.

You hunch over your flight coat and give her your hand,
beckoning. Summer-Rain groans her signature groan.
She asks if this is simply the stairs up and you grab her
to shelter her from the violent snowstorm. Inside, she
looks in wonder at the remnants of a lost civilization,
an endless series of stone carvings with light shining
upon them providing an eerie tranquility.

Summer-Rain asks what are you both doing here, before
you explain that according to the writings of a certain
Allan Quatermain, Esq, the key to unlocking Deadfall is
in this forgotten Pyramid in the ice, an artifact known as
the Heart of Atlantis. Summer-Rain raises her eyebrow,
asking if this is the same Allan Quatermain that writer
H. R. Haggard had his character star in. You nod, saying
that so far, it's like a thinking man's 'Doom.'

Suddenly, Russians appear! You curse under your breath
as a firefight breaks out and hand Summer-Rain a rifle,
muttering that you thought when you escaped the Nazis
in the Sakkaran desert along with the Mummies, that that
would be the end of it. Summer-Rain groans at you again,
quipping that in a game like this, its never that easy.

You fight off the Russians and a battalion of returning
Nazis through an abandoned mine, exploring crevasses
and caves for Maps and Ancient Idols which can be used to
upgrade your health and gunplay mechanics. Summer-Rain
asks if there was anything that she had missed and you
hand her an Ancient Idol to improve her marksmanship

You tell her that was from the levels she missed in Egypt
before kissing her briefly and opening a secret door deep
within the Arctic Temple. You exit a world away, in the dense,
lush jungles of the Maya. You tell Summer-Rain that with the
Heart of Atlantis and the many scattered maps recovered,
any more puzzles can be solved easily and the mystery of
Xibalba, the mystery of Deadfall- can be revealed.

Summer-Rain grows ever more worried, with the amount of
Mayan undead warriors swarming from the shadows and
zombie Gorilla-beings baying for both of your blood.
The Russians encounter you one final time with whatever
remains of their expeditionary force, but you and
Summer-Rain make quick work of them with the amount of
Ancient Idol upgrades and weapon variety you have at your

Finally, you arrive in the magma-soaked depths of Xibalba,
to find that the ultimate villain, Dr. Heinrich Hagen, turned
into an Avatar of otherworldly power and hellbent on global
destruction. It's up to you in this final fight as Summer-Rain
is surrounded by the armies of the dead, summoned by

You draw your Quatermain pistols that have served you well
throughout the adventure and unleash a barrage of firepower
that the best of mankind's weapons have to offer.
You alternate between dynamite, rifles and even RPGs before
reverting again to your trusty Quatermain pistols when
Uberhagen falters in his would-be ascension.

Glancing at Summer-Rain, you shout that you'll do you best.
Summer-Rain pushes past another Mayan undead warrior
before shooting it through the torso, nodding that she knows
that you always do. You take aim at Uberhagen and fire.

The world flashes to white as you and Summer-Rain awake
at the foot of your bed. Blinking, you sit up and find that
you're still dressed in Quatermain's adverturer attire as you
try to feel if your limbs are still attached, with Summer-Rain
opposite you sporting a matching look, equally confused
and worried. After a time, both of you can speak again.

"I-" You begin, before Summer-Rain finishes for you.

"I think we've finished Deadfall." Summer-Rain exclaims,
looking about your bedroom. You nod silently, almost eagerly,
glad that you and her finished it, saved the world, and most
importantly, saved each other. Summer-Rain smiles again,
the same smile that you knew when you first got together
with her over a different game.

"Front porch and driveway as ancient Egypt, living room and
stairwell as the Arctic Temple and our bedroom as Xibalba?
my my... you have quite an imagination, don't you?"
whispers in your ear, unholstering the Quatermain pistol you
have with you. "Little early for Halloween, isn't it?"

"It's never early for a game like this either..." You manage
to reply to Summer-Rain, before you embark on a whole new
adventure of your own together with her.

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.

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.
