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.

This is a broken game and you should not waste your time on it, when I originally bought it, the game worked about 50% of the time and then you reach a certain point and the game completey stops, never to work again. The developers offer no support on the matter, so you should not risk spending your money on something that most likely will not work.

In the event the game does work, it is still a pretty poor game, and not nearly as good as the original contra, which is sad, given that Contra is about 30 years old. Your main character is Anubis, althoug there is no story as to why or how that ties into Egyptian mythology, and you just run through the levels, which all look the same and fight the same looking enemies over and over again. It is very repetitive and the placement and attack patterns of the enemies do not induce that heart pounding tension that these types of games are supposed to produce.

There is an upgrade system in place, where you can buy useless temporary upgrades and upgrade your terrible gun into a slightly less terrible gun, also power ups are few and far between, which means you will spend most levels armed with oonly your basic pea shooter, which further adds to the monotony of this game.

I just got this game today for free.
Great looking screenshots made me think 'Hey, its like Contra'. .. No its not..
Its bleak, empty, and feels loosly put together. Hardly any polish.
No thought has gone in to making the levels (the first 3 i tried anyway).
If this was an ongoing project then I would have hope, but if they are calling this the finished game then im done with it.

Unreliable platforming, sloppy controls, and a truly annoying soundtrack. I got this game for free and I want a refund.

Chaos Domain is a bland, uninspring platformer in which you jump around and shoot the bad guys. The controls are slippery and there are some performance issues. The game gets very boring very quickly, as there is no story whatsoever and the gameplay gets repetitive. There are some upgrades for your character, but they don't seem to do all that much. I got the game for free, but I'll probably never play through it.

The first negative review I've written and certainly not something I take much pleasure in.

Chaos Domain as has been mentioned by many reviewers is a return to the age old Contra formula, static 8 directional shooting (much like the sort a classic D-pad was meant for) with awkward platforming, enemies that can shoot you through platforms that are supposed to be solid objects and ridiculously slippy controls without all the fluidity of Contras double jumping, this game is best left on the wayside.

For those of you like me, who don't own a 360 controller and don't necessarily see it as a requirement for games on a PC- don't get me started, the control scheme is a nightmare. I'm left handed and the standard controls are made with a right handed user in mind so you'll need to go through the borish task of arranging them to better suit you. The keyboard controls are poorly responsive and in a twitch shooting game where dozens of enemies might be shooting at you at once this is unacceptable.

Now on to the basics, I played one mission- that's three sections of a map that are broken up to create a single mission- so three 'check points' as it were. The beginning of the game as you might expect has you running to the right- but not able to return to the left (!) to collect missed pick ups or kill enemies and has you repeat this process three times, all while being shot by enemies through floors and walls, ceilings and anything else they seem to teleport their bullets through, which would be forgivable if you didn't get three lives (and one continue on the easier difficulty per check point) and died when you were hit once.

At the end of the first mission I was faced with a boss that is clearly a rip off of the loader from Aliens and other titles in the same franchise where it might well crop up. You are on a conveyor being dragged towards it while it fires either on a platform above it, or down the conveyor you are travelling on. You MUST hit it in the cockpit, meaning you need to be on the upper platform- not an issue, if not for the respawning guy on the platform above, lobbing grenades down at you that have an AOE far larger than is indicated by the explosion shown on screen.

It was at this point I turned the game off, and cursed myself for even bothering to pick it up.

I'm not going to list pros and cons for this, as I can't be bothered to do so. I'll simply offer my honest advice, keep your money, don't waste your time and don't waste a friends time- unless he/she and you are equally brain dead, by forking cash over for this half baked attempt at a classic and realized concept. Your friendship will swiftly end, your irritation will reach maximum levels in record time and your relatives will swiftly disown you if they learn you have this in your library.

character moves too slow for pace of the game
enemies spawn so you have to die to get thru the game
couldn't get thru first world without game crashing on me
conveyor belts
funny ragdoll physics

your friends will say don't play it
you'll say you can't stop me
they're right, they can't
but the game will

gg overall 10/10

No, don’t even think about this game. Chaos Domain is absolutely terrible. I could barely stand 10 minutes of it. No story, just puts you into the game. No explanations of controls, had to switch to controller just to play it and even then the controls were awkward and terrible. So hard to aim and cannot aim down. Enemies can shoot through platforms while you cannot. Everything kills you. Going near an enemy kills you. And the boss fights are more frustrating than Dark Souls! This is just terrible.

The controls are not good at all. This can mean death in many cases. The gameplay gets boring. This could have worked better as a flash game.

I got this game for free and this is the best free game I've tried. Although this game is extremely difficult even on easy this game is quite fun. But however the game seems to crash every 10-20 minutes frequently. Making me not to recommend this game to anyone.

Even if you have more money than sense this game is unplayable so please do not buy it.

Remember Commando on miniclip?

It's like that, except a lot less exciting, repetitive, annoying soundtrack, and no point or storyline...

:/

hate this game, as does everyone else.

I got it for free so I can't complain. But since it is one of the worst pieces of entertainment I have ever seen, I will. The default configuration is wasd/move and space/jump, and fire is the K key... you cannot rebind it to mouse 1, this game is keyboard control only. There is no gamepad support which is inexcusable. I could probably program gamepad support myself into a game, yet it eludes the capabilities of these people. Nobody wants to play a sidescrolling platforming game with keyboard only, or any game for that matter. Even if I could use my gamepad, I wouldn't want to. Everything else sucks too but it is not worth my time to elaborate on details, that is how bad it is. It feels like someone's first raw attempt at making a game with some game maker program you can buy on steam. One thing I will say is that it had horrible screen tearing, which is especially noticeable in side scrollers, because vsync is off by default and there is no option to enable it. I could have forced it with Nvidia control panel but again, the game is not worth the time.

If the next time I am at a fair and I pop a balloon with a dart and I can pick either this game or to drink after a homeless guy with mouth herpes, I would choose the latter.
This game has NOTHING on Tiger wrist watch games and I sincerely mean that from the bottom of my heart. This game belongs in the gutter, lying next to the homeless guy as he pisses himself while drinking cheap booze.

1/10. I gave it one point because it functions.

Not the best game there is. Rather dull gameplay with rather questionable explosive splash damage and rather bland level design. It's nice to see that the creators wanted to make a 2D platforming run-and-gun kind of game, but it seems to do it by the numbers, as opposed to trying to make gripping and enjoyable set pieces that litter games such as Contra or Metal Slug.

Add to the the occasional crashing issues and the awkward controls sometimes, I wouldn't reccomend it. But if you get it for free like I did, you can't moan too much. Nice efort, poor execution. Which is upsetting as the concept of being Robo-Space-Anubis sounds rather cool.

Soundtrack is pretty fun though, can't fault that.

É um jogo a primeira vista bonito mas limitado, Porém após se aprofundar mais tempo nele, o desafio começa a atrair você. E as músicas são legais apesar de ficarem um pouquinho repetitivas depois de tantas vezes tocando. Os efeitos sonoros são ótimos, e os gráficos atraentes. Simples mas muito atraentes por causa dos efeitos e animação. Depois que se domina o jogo, lá pra frente, se enxerga um jogo viciante por causa das qualidades citadas acima.
