Description

The earth is overpopulated and mankind must find a second home. The spaceship Amazon is sent to investigate Saturn and Jupiter for possible colonization. Near the end of its mission, all contact is lost with the ship except for a distress beacon. The player is part of the crew sent to the Amazon's last known location to find out what happened.

Creature Shock is a first-person shooter with Full Motion Video and arcade-like elements. Aliens of all sizes and types will try to destroy the team, but each one has a weak point that can be exploited. The fighting takes place on the surface of asteroids and within mazes of passageways underground.

There are also two 3D sections where the player gets to pilot the ship.

Trivia

Cancelled port

Atari was working on a port for their Jaguar CD, but cancelled it.

Development

The movie sequences were all rendered on 486 DX/2 66 [Mhz] workstations, which marked high end computing power at the time of development.

Manual

The game's manual had its own ideas of what useful tips can be:
"For maximum atmosphere turn down the lights and use headphones instead of speakers."

Localization

The German localization features the voice of Rolf Schult as the player's briefing officer and narrator in the intro sequence. At the time Creature Shock was released that specific voice had been especially renowned as the German dubbing voice of actor Patrick Stewart in his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the TV series Star Trek: TNG who in turn sports a similar hairdo like the briefing officer.

Though the original multi language UK DOS release features no credits of any particular voice talent.
