The Humble Frozenbyte Bundle Reviewed

Filed under
Gaming

Time for another Humble Bundle review! After parts one and two, the Humble Indie Bundle project ran their third collection, which earned just short of one million in one week of sales. Unlike the previous two, the third Humble Bundle offering focuses on a single game vendor, Frozenbyte, with three complete games, one online pre-order demo and one early beta pre-order prototype. The games include Trine, a side-scrolling action and puzzle game, Shadowgrounds, a shoot 'em up shooter and its sequel Shadowgrounds: Survivor, Jack Claw, which is going to focus on realistic physics combat in a modern urban environment, and Splot, which is going to be a 2D adventure arcade.

Shadowgrounds & Shadowgrounds: Survivor

Shadowgrounds is a horror shooter, played in the top-down third-person view, with a restricted camera angle. It's very similar to Doom, including the overall feel and the dark, scary atmosphere, except you're detached from the action on the ground by about 15 meters. However, the distance does not diminish the tension. Even though you enjoy a much better field of view and lighting, the sensation of panic and claustrophobia are artfully portrayed, which is not something I would have expected from a game like this.
