PSA: Deadlight is Your Second April Games with Gold Title
Written Wednesday, April 16, 2014 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Taking over from previous free Games with Gold title Hitman Absolution, today sees Tequila Works' Deadlight stepping into the spotlight, offering up a slab of zombie survival viewed from a 2.5D side-scrolling perspective.
You play as Randall Wayne, a survivor on a fraught journey to return to his family, while coping with the horrors of a zombie apocalypse set in the 1980s. You'll need to run, jump and climb your way to safety, while braving hordes of shambling undead and the last, barbaric vestiges of humanity.
Requiring a steady trigger finger and good aim, survival is the tip of the iceberg in Deadlight, as there are plenty of secrets and collectibles to unearth too. You can also attempt the rock hard Nightmare Mode, facing tougher enemies and challenges.
Deadlight is available to download via Games with Gold now for free, until April 30th. You can add it to your download queue here.
