Dead Containment Preview
Posted: 10 days ago.
Play involves precisely targeting and shooting enemies so you kill them before they reach you and cause injury. It's brash and over the top like a Die Hard film. You collect items by shooting them to boost your score and gain weapons.
As you progress there are decisions over which path to take through a level, and bigger harder enemies to take on in boss encounters. You can also attempt the game in single credit mode, where your restarts are limited, for an extra challenge. There are also moments in the play where you must rescue civilians.
Although most people will play this with a mouse, the game does support Light Guns. Either way, it's a game that recreates the simple joy of only having your gun reticule between you and the zombie hoard.
