About Space Beast Terror Fright
Developed by Nornware, the PC release of Space Beast Terror Fright is a science-fiction FPP shooter featuring certain elements typical for roguelike games
The action of the game is set at an unspecified point in the future, in which the humanity possesses the technology allowing interstellar journeys. A player assumes the role of a perfectly trained soldier, whose task is to receive important data from a spaceship drifting through space. The problem is that the vessel has been overrun by alien creatures whose only desire is to eat the main protagonist alive.
The PC release of Space Beast Terror Fright draws its inspirations from the roguelike games. The insides of the ship are generated procedurally – this regards both the layout of the rooms and distribution of the alien monsters. Upon gathering sufficient data, a player has to reach the reactor, activate the self-destruction sequence, and evacuate the ship before it explodes.
A player observes the action from the eyes of the main protagonist. Upon starting his adventure, one is equipped with a machine gun and a motion sensor that can detect the enemies and points toward data storages. During the exploration of the map, a player is bound to come across some componentry that allows them to upgrade his gear. The enemies are powerful and ruthless making for challenging opponents. In order to survive, one has to shut the airlocks to decrease the possibility of an attack from certain directions. This, however, should not be overdone, as a player might fight himself trapped with no way to escape from the incoming danger. Also, the sentry robots prove very useful, as they can help us fight the alien beasts.
The game does not take long to complete, however it features a permanent death system – upon the death of the main protagonist, a player has to start over the game. The procedurally generated map makes each playthrough unique. Space Beast Terror Fright delivers also a cooperative mode.
