Description

It is the year 15432, and criminal organizations are flourishing. Scavenging has become increasing profitable, since the criminal elite is willing to pay big money for their shady undertakings. A mysterious group known as A.V.C. contacts the acquisition squad Red Hunter to perform missions for them in particularly dangerous environments. The team departs on its needling ship, hoping to gain fame and riches in this perilous endeavor.

In Pursuit of Greed is a shareware raycasting 3D (2.5D) first-person shooter. Over the course of the game, the player gains access to five different playable characters, though the differences between them are mostly cosmetic. The protagonists can use melee weapons (such as daggers), but mostly rely on firearms. It is also possible to pick up and throw grenades. Ammunition and power-ups are randomly generated.
