Rating: 3.9 (90 votes cast)

Shadowgrounds is an epic sci-fi shooter that blends addictive old-school action and modern technology into one big, nasty alien-battling carnage festival. The game is played from a top-down perspective that gives you a better view of the battlefield and allows for different and unique combat tactics.

Upgrade those Weapons!
Use a devastating arsenal of high-tech weaponry to dispose of the alien threat. Each weapon has multiple upgrades that maximize the carnage. Unleash the flames of the Flamethrower's Fuel Trap, cause mayhem with the Grenade Launcher's Poison Grenades, slice and dice aliens with the Laser Rifle's Pinpoint Laser - and many more!

What lurks in the shadows!
Shadowgrounds uses cutting-edge realistic lighting and glow technology to light up the battlefield and create detailed shadows producing an atmosphere of fear. But the lighting and your flashlight also affect some aliens' behavior – take advantage of that and turn the tide of the struggle by using your flashlight effectively.

Destructable Environment!
What good are weapons and explosive special effects if you can't wreak havoc on the environment? Shadowgrounds lets you go all out - glass shatters, ground shakes, trees fall, crates explode and furniture is blown to smithereens. Use your environment to your advantage and survive the alien onslaught.

They’re big and nasty!
Shadowgrounds’ old-school action brings back the boss battles - big, brutal monsters are waiting for you. Prepare to face many different bosses who will do anything to stop your journey. They are nasty, blood-thirsty beasts, but don’t give in to fear - remember to use the environment and the lighting to your advantage!
