About the 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...

Deadfall Adventures is a good fun cool blend of adventure, FPS with a decent selection of puzzles. It's not a bad game by any means, but had so much potential to be great. If your looking for an Indiana Jones first person shooter look no further.

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.

i found this game to be very fun and interesting. The stroy is decent 6/10. Graphics by 2013 standards are visually good 7.5/10, with just a few slopy animations here and there. But now the puzzles, they are a good blend of thinking out of the box and at the same time common sense and guess work. give the puzzles 8/10. Combat is fun and i admit to being scared by a random zombie head full size on screen. I'd give it 8/10.Unfortunately, the multiplayer is dead though. :/. Set on hard all around the puzzles can b very tough but, for the experienced gamers, combat remains semi-easy. Altogether i loved this game but i my opinion, get it on sale if u can cause $40 is a little steep for this game.

Well, il start by saying that it was a pleasant surprise to play this game, if you are a fan of the movies of Quartmain adventures, you sure feel inside one of his adventures, the game have a decent combat mechanic and very well made puzzles wich give you the sense of adventurer looking for loot, just like Quartemain.

All the diferent scenarios give you the feeling you are travelling around the world, even not using a top engine, the graphics are good and make the enviorement more believable, some animations are fun others a little dumb, but doesnt get in the way of the gameplay.

There are some variaty of old model weapons, they feel satisfying when firing them but the little ammo you can carry for each one may feel frustrating in some fights, also they have pretty good sound if that matter for any of you.
The Loot incentivate the exploration to get skill points to improve your character and weapons handling, but the levels are very linear, there is 2 or 3 ocasions here you have a little more freedom but, this is a linear game at is core.

The Survival mode is very good to play alone or with friends wich give a more extense to the gameplay, or if you are more of a competitive player, the multiplayer is also satisfying with some fun modes you dont find in other games, but in that regard you have better options for the classic modes.

Conclusion, it is fresh experience from what we have in the market about shooters, with the adventure touch that make Deadfall a diferent game from the others, and if you fan of QT adventures, you surely feel the similarity betwen them, so id give it a try.

Yes, after a looooong time I just thought that this game deserves a small recommendation / review!

This game is one of my longest dreams that came through. A game where you can be a true adventurer as the famous Quatermain (or Indiana Jones if you want) and this in a Ego-Shooter. What the ♥♥♥♥; is that kinda cool? Really? Adventuring in a Ego-Shooter?
YES, that is possible. The Farm 51 developing team has made a great game with that. You have brilliant graphic moments (Unreal Engine 3), but of course there are also some bad graphics in there. But hey, nevermind. The important part is that you have really AWESOME PUZZLE moments here. Some of 'em are tricky, lots of 'em are "normal" but funny. The dialogs between James Quatermain and Jennifer Goodwin (your female partner) are funny and make you feel you're just right here - within the awesome temples and pyramids. ;)
So, if you love lots of puzzles, adventuring and of course Ego-Shooter then you have to try this game. :)

Pros:
» lots of puzzles (easy and hard / before you can choose the difficulty for puzzles)
» awesome atrmosphere with pyramids, temples and other "Egypt stuff"
» nice graphics with the Unreal Engine 3 - the most time
» funny dialogs
» well-done mixture of adventuring and Ego-Shooter
» long-driven story ( I played the whole game with adventuring moments 17 hours^^)

Cons:
» shooting moments are boring and not challenging
» some graphics bugs
» at the beginning the controls are a bit complicated
» The multiplayer part is a waste of time


Tell me what you think about this game if finished! :)
