About This Game

Mars, 2044. The UN establishes MARSCORP (Martian Security and Economics Committee) under the leadership of Samuel Longwood. In the years that follow, the UN gradually loses control of MARSCORP, mainly due to the non-transparent licence policy of its director. Longwood uses his autonomous status to create vassal relations between the corporations and MARSCORP. The unshakable power position of MARSCORP is supported by the companies and thus they acquire additional rights and licenses. Longwood and his consortium become extremely wealthy from this arrangement. However, dissenting voices in MARSCORP begin to challenge Samuel Longwood's authoritarian policy. They demand his dismissal as director and a complete redistribution of the mining rights.

But Samuel Longwood keeps an ace up his sleeve for occasions like this…

Chaser awakens on board the spaceship H.M.S. Majestic. He doesn't know who he is, what he's doing here, why he is being sought by men in black uniforms and what they will do to him when they find him…

The player's goal is to find out who Chaser really is and why he is being hunted. The story leads the player from the H.M.S. Majestic to Montack City on Earth, then on to Siberia and finally to Mars, where the trail ends and hopefully the truth can be found.

You know what I love about this game...

It exists at the end of that small window in time between the original "forced 3d" shooter era of games like Doom and Duke Nukem, and before the modern era style of FPS took over. It feels like a lost relic from a past era, and a hybrid of old and new concepts.

That being said...this game is ambitious and really dumb in a "so bad it's good kind of way". You will quickly form a love/hate relationship with every aspect of this game.

The area to area shooting and combat mechanics are really quite good, but also really unforgiving. You can save anywhere, and you'll need to!

Cinematics and voice acting are really rough, but not dull or pretentious. It's a lot of tough talk and mafia stereotypes.

Now, the bugs and glitches...yes, there's a lot. They don't break the game or make it unplayable, but they do provide many good laughs.

So...enjoy this old school dumb shooter and buy it when it goes on sale.
