In a cold, dark future dominated by mega-corporations, a small lonely planet on the edge of habitable space is the site of a shadowy research facility specializing in necrotic tissue reactivation. You are a scientist who has suddenly awoken to the realization that you are the lone survivor.

Prepare to die... often.Kishko | Oct. 29, 2013 | See all Kishko's reviews »
As the others reviewers point out, the game is not for everyone, but it wasn't meant to be. It was meant to be Quake roguelike top-down shooter and on these elements the game fares pretty well. The atmosphere is really intense: The space station is riddled with interdimentional black blobs that make your brain explode if you get too close; It is plagued with hordes of various mutants and monsters while the armament for your disposition is scarce. In order to keep your ammo at the reasonable level you will be forced to take risks and roam the station in search of materials, which you may combine and create new weapons and items. The game is quite hard and you have to prepare for numerous replays. The graphic side of the game resembles Quake with its bleak, monochrome palette while the pixel art tips the hat to the whole generation of retro games (while the font is a dead ringer for this used in Liero). The downside of this design is that after a while rooms start to look alike and repeat, there is a bit too little variation in elements you may find scattered on the level on every other replay. To sum up, the game is a fine treat for those with retro sensibilities, who are not easily scared by the high difficulty level. The price is a turnoff, but keep an eye for discounts such as the recent one and you may get it dirt cheap.
Awesome Rouge-like game.domingz605 | Oct. 26, 2013 | See all domingz605's reviews »
Are you searching for a really good and hard game? You should buy Teleglitch. This game is really hard so you will die many times. And that can be a bad thing about this game. One of the thing in this game that not everybody will like are graphics. This game have mixed graphics. It's like 8-bit game with 3d sprites etc. But the graphics add something to this game. The controls are good. Overall this game is really good. It's not a game for everyone. If you like challenge you should buy this game.
What's round the next corner...?mintyjones | Oct. 22, 2013 | See all mintyjones's reviews »
There's nothing more exciting than running willy-nilly through a scary complex, with an ever increasing horde of monsters chasing you, and waiting for the right moment to drop an explosive charge in order to wipe them out.
And that is just a normal occurrence in this game. As with most roguelikes, just one more go is necessary in order to get just that little bit further.
The simple crafting system is exciting as new items gradually appear out of the bits and bobs you collect along the way.
The graphical presentation is very atmospheric, with the 8 bit retro look breaking down everything to it's simplest parts, while the POV vision works very well, hiding the monsters in the shadows.
WARNING - this game is hard, and will test your mettle. Get ready to die more...
Great rogue-like for fans of the genreasbath | Oct. 8, 2013 | See all asbath's reviews »
This is a rogue-like that I can see myself playing for years to come. It's a survivor horror game where ammo is scarce, enemies are brutal, and you'll die. A lot. And in ways so frustrating that you demand yourself to do better next time (only to do horrendously worse than before).
The game has barely anything in the visual and audio departments, but it more than makes up for these in the gameplay. It creates a truly frightful environment by physically blocking out areas that you cannot see, so you are constantly surrounded by blackness leaving you to determine whether you're ready to round that corner. Maybe there's nothing, maybe there's a horde ready to attack.
The game isn't for everyone: it's frustrating, it's time consuming, and it's always very different between different playthroughs. The gameplay is relatively simple in that you pick up items, slap them together if possible, and just keep on scrounging through everything for more ammo in order to survive.
One of the major benefits of the really basic graphics is that it requires barely anything to really run the game, and that means even the weakest of ultrabooks and Atom-based machines could run this game without any problems. An excellent solution for killing time in the airport with your less-than-stellar netbook (though not at high framerates)

DOOM meets QUAKE meets roguelike-likes
What I like about this game is how you have to switch up your playstyle to survive as you go along.
Hit level 3? Prepare yourself!
Level 5? Change it up! Or you'll die.
Level 7? Get re- OH MY GOD THERE WAS A GIANT SQUID AND IT ANNIHILATED ME WITH A LASER BEAM
Pros: Great and addictive gameplay, awesome aesthetic and feeling, text logs give a good feel of the story, combining items are cool, finding secrets are great, enemies are interesting and make things frantic. The level select system is cool, rewarding progress.
Cons: Map could use a bit of work( scrolling takes a while in the larger areas). Could use some more enemy types (towards the later levels, it's always the same 4 or 5 kind of enemies with palette swaps).
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT ALT-TAB THIS GAME IF YOU DO IT WILL GLITCH AND YOU WILL HAVE TO SHUT IT DOWN
I've done this a couple of times and it's frustrating to lose a run just because you wanted to check the internet.
Hopefully they'll patch it soon (the devs are super responsive :D )
Still, it's amazing, and you should try it. Seriously.
I can't stop playing
