What is the new wrinkle in game play for Shadow Warrior? Shadow Warrior supports three dimensional vehicles. The vehicles that you can drive include tanks, boats, bulldozers, forklifts, and many others. Drive vehicles through walls or destroy a section of a map. Beach boats on a sandbar or muddy shore. Drive vehicles which have weapons from machine guns to lasers, or rockets. Get into some vehicles and go under others. You will drive things like boats, tanks, personnel carriers, forklifts, bulldozers and more. You can run over enemies, or shoot them.
You can use huge 3D rotating gun turrets to mow down opponents. Some turrets are on things like battleships, while some are simply set into a wall, or other structure.
You will be able to swim in the water just like Laura Croft in Tomb Raider, duck, jump, drive vehicles, climb ladders and more in this intense action game, visit realistic places and settings in the game like an airport where a plane has crashed,construction sites and more, not just dark, dreary, faceless dungeons. The game will feature "intense interaction with your environment in which you can blow up nearly every object, or interect with it in someway.
Weapons will include ten weapons not seen in other games including enemies' body parts. The game will have some really unique weapons such as the spiked ball. Cannot wait? Visit the web site for more information.
Shadow Warrior also uses the Duke Nukem 3D advanced build engine to create three dimensional environments. Like other games made with the Duke Nukem 3D engine, there is true room over room situations where you can have beams running over a room and be above, below, or stand on the beam. Ledges, true bridges and more are all possible, adding to the realism of the environment. The Super VGA 640 x 480 pixel resolution graphics will have fog effects, colored lighting, and transparent water that you can see into and out of, as well as swim in.
