Intro & Summary
A dark, paranoid parkour trip through the gritty 1980s streets of Seattle during a zombie outbreak as a middle-aged Randall. Deadlight never got the attention it deserved, probably because, as an indie game, it launched on X-Box and was quietly added to Steam, which is a shame because it's surprisingly well made 2.5D platformer, and has plenty of character and a strong atmosphere and art design and offers a bit more than you'd expect.
What could've been a flat 2D platforming experience has become an interesting world with history and characters worth paying attention to. That and the art style make this a fun experience.
* Rich, interesting variety of collectibles and easter-eggs
* Mechanics (like the Yo-yo) keep it form being boring
* Great art and level design
* Fairly strong platforming
* Comes with many problems of the console- plays at 30fps, poor controls, poor graphics and optimization options, etc.
* A few small mistakes make some moments cheap and annoying
Deadlight is fairly short, and comes in at around 5 hours playtime, which some feel is too short, but I say it fits perfect for the game and never overstays its welcome, but it isn't enough for Deadlights price. Deadlight has little re-playability, though does add a little with good collectibles and achievements. Pick it up at a fairer -50% or less to get your moneys worth.
Available for £9.99/11.99€/$14.99 on Steam, the soundtrack is fairly nice, but not worth paying for. Also available on X-box and does come up in indie bundles from time to time.
* There are some interesting easter eggs including shoutouts to games like Portal and Cthulu, collectible hand-held game consoles, and references to real world serial killers.
* It's playable on a keyboard, but much smoother on a controller.http://store.steampowered.com/app/211400
