Zortch is a QUAKE inspired retro run and gun Sci-Fi FPS with big chunky polygons, big guns and a big dose of playful humor.
In Zortch you were tricked by aliens while on holiday and now find yourself trapped in a cell waiting for them to eat your brain. Thankfully though with a well aimed wrench throw you can make a break for freedom and leave a trail of alien bodies in your wake.
The gameplay in Zortch is much like a classic QUAKE style shooter, with you using big guns to run and gun your way through the alien ship. It’s a little more lighthearted though, with some fun environmental gags and slightly more cartoonish visual design.
It could perhaps do with some better AI in places and a bit of a UI tidy up (and an option to turn on red blood would be nice), but other than that it’s a very promising game. The guns feel great and have some cool alternate functions, there’s a nice variety of enemies to blast and the difficulty levels actually add more enemies (and more types of enemies), rather than just adjusting stats. Plus there are lots of different routes and secrets to discover in the ship, so even the single current level has lots of replayability.
