About This Game

Chaos Domain is a game about shooting bad people in the face.

Apart from that, it is also a run and gun platformer, powered by Unreal Engine. The game is highly influenced by games from 8-bit and 16-bit era, including Contra/Probotector series, as well as titles like Abuse and Doom Troopers.

The game is set on a huge spaceship occupied by chaos cultists, where the main character (who clearly looks like a hi-tech version of the god Anubis) must kill everyone in sight. The game is obviously not story-driven, it’s all about action.

Players can upgrade weapons and purchase special items that can boost their performance. Local co-op for 2 players is available.


FEATURES
• Classic gameplay.
• 10 levels split into sub-areas, which gives us about 30 stages.
• Upgradable weapons and a range of special abilities to choose from.
• Pure hardcore run and gun action.
• Traditional 2 Player local co-op.

Arid level design filled with sloppy platforming, glitchy controls and slightly annoying soundtrack. Based on screenshots you might think that this game will be a decent Contra clone, but it isnt, not the slightest. It is a bleak platformer in which your sole purpose is to jump around and kill some bad guys.

It needs some serious maintenance in order to be playable at all. Controls especially.

Do NOT buy this game. I got it for free and believe me it's not worth any sum of your money.

Imagine that it's E3 for the year 2050. Some random guy steps onto the stage and starts introducing a new game genre:

"This year, we are bringing side-scrollers to the next level. Behold, the next generation of side-scrollers ..."

*crowd anticipation*

"... Forward Scrollers!"

*crowd applaud in confusion*

"Forward scrollers are basically the same as side-scrollers with only one difference. You can only go right."

*crowd started to talk*

"The main purpose for this evolution is to increase the difficulty of the game. Imagine, you can only venture forth, and not back. If you missed an item, you will miss it forever unless you replay the whole level..."

At this point, if you still feel that there is absolutely nothing wrong with what you have just read, please do not hestitate to make a purchase of advanced and futuristic piece of "forward-scrolling" game known as Chaos Domain. If you find something wrong with what was just said, congratulations, because you belong to this era.

To be fair, this genre of "forward-scrolling" is nothing new. There are many games from more than a decade ago that offers "forward-scrolling" mechanism. There are also many games which offers no tutorial, such as Super Mario and Chaos Domain. There are also many scrollers that allows you to shoot and jump through the ground, like Chaos Domain. There are also many scrolling shooters which allows you to shoot at only 8 directions, or have only 3 1-hit-kill lives, like Chaos Domain.

Seriously, to be fair, the design of this game is more than a decade old, and launching a "forward-scrolling" game in 2014 with only a somewhat 3D graphics (which has glitches to begin with) is not something we should see in the market. We are not in the year 2050, and imagine that Half-Life came out 17 years before this horrendous craft ...

Playtime:

Graphics: Decent

Controls: Like ♥♥♥♥♥. Aim up, down, left, right and at 45 degree angles only. Aiming up and right makes your character move aswell.

Diffuculty: Insane. Hotline Miami style enemys. Atleast makes the game a challenge.

Performance: Top Kek. Pretty well optimised

Audio: Soundtrack made me want to commit suicide


Overall don't take the game ever if it is free. Wastes 2GB of Storage space.

I can see a whole bunch of people disliking it because of it's difficulty, or the fact it plays best with a controller, but it is little things like that, that bring me back to the 80's and gaming on my NES. As much as us in the PC Master Race hate to admit it, consoles were the only real place to play games before the 90's or throw your quarters away at the arcade. Sidescrolling with limited lives, continues and patience. This game doesn't have graphics that will sweat your 780ti or 290X, or make your processor cry for mercy, it doesn't have a pulse pounding 5.1 soundtrack, or multimonitor gaming, it doesn't have a near endless list of graphic options, or a lengthy tutorial on how to play, it doesn't have some loose story (in fact it has none at all) with bad voice acting or a star studded cast. What it does have, is nostalgia, and it has it in spades.

Very Limited Lives? Check
Limited Time? Check
Limited Continues? Check
Limited Forgiveness for miscalculating movements? Check
Sidescrolling action? Check
Best played with controller? Check
Frustration Inducing? Can be.

This isn't a game you're going to get lost in for hours, but it is one you're going to go back and try and beat again and again, for small periods of time, and more than likely get your ♥♥♥ handed to you again and again.


I would really have preferred if you could use the D-Pad instead of the analog stick. These controllers today just do not have the responsiveness of the old Arcade sticks of yore.

Oh well, if you want to play a game that is a short time killer, or enjoy being challanged by having to discover how to play on your own, or just like baddies that can hit you with ease and love tossing your controller; This game is worth the $10 entry fee.

Need your hand held all the time, or need eye bleeding graphics, a forgiving system that always makes you feel superior, or if you just need to feel like a PC Master Race ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ by never touching a controller; This game is NOT for you.
