Description: An Orcus Research Cartel station orbiting a deep space magnetar has gone rogue. The operating system has killed the crew and turned them into thanatoids, half-dead monsters with a lust for murder. And if that’s not bad enough, the corporate A.I. back at Earth System has triggered the station’s self destruct sequence. Your only chance is to fight your way through an army of weaponized undead and find an escape pod before time runs out or the thanatoids overwhelm you.

10,000 levels of chaotic science fiction horror that rise inexorably in difficulty. Choose which maps you play, in any order, from the dead easy beginning sectors to the certain death end sectors. Take on extra challenges for big rewards, and use those rewards to buy new weapons and survival skills. The maps start small and painless, but sector by sector the challenge mercilessly ramps up, until at some point they become practically impossible. Where that point is depends on your skill.

Review: ‘Necro Mutex’ is very much your all-action shooter like Doom or Serious Sam in which you will be shooting all manner of monsters from hell as fast as you can with the fast music banging away in the background. While it is clear from the off that this game was not made for VR like most FPT shooters it still feels good to play in VR and as long as you have a good PC it will look good and run smooth. It will be too fast-paced and nauseating for many players and the lack of multiplayer will put many others off getting it, but got this in a sale for just £1.13 and for that price you can’t argue and to be fair to the game its probably worth the full £11.39 asking price as well.
