The latest entry in the Xbox Live “Summer of Arcade” is out and it is a good one. Deadlight from Tequila Works is our highest-rated game so far from the promotional line up, earning a 7.5 from IrishVendetta84. He even said, “Deadlight intertwines many of the best 2D survival mechanics with modern sensibilities, often lacking in modern survival horror games.”
Deadlight takes place in the 1980s and is a 2D platformer where you play as Randall Wayne, who is trying to find his family in the midst of a zombie outbreak. You fight off hordes of “shadows” (zombies) and solve puzzles in your mission to get to your loved ones. The game takes a far more realistic approach to its weapons. It gives you guns, but they are loud and will draw unwanted attention which may get you swarmed. This will leave you running, jumping and wall bouncing to get away.
If this sounds like something you are interested in, then we have some good new for you. We are giving away one copy of Deadlight to a lucky reader. To win all you have to do is complete the required section below. The giveaway will end on Tuesday, August 14th 2012. Good luck.
