Description

The alien threat has run rampant. After the events of Alien Shooter the outbreak has spread to most parts of the world. A small European town now faces their wrath and the only person in their path is a man named Theseus. Using ludicrous amounts of ammo Theseus must find out where the aliens are coming from and put an end to their seemingly endless spawning. Along his way Theseus must rescue survivors, plant explosives and commandeer mounted gun turrets and tanks in order to put a dent in the alien onslaught.

Theseus: Return of the Hero is an isometric shooter game where you direct where the hero will walk with the keyboard while he shoots at what you aim at with the mouse. This sequel to Alien Shooter uses the same engine as the previous game and will see its titular hero travel from forest to city in his quest to crush alien invaders. He has access to six weapons and multitudes of other upgrades that will help him survive. There is money to be collected as well throughout the levels which will help him purchase bonuses from the shop he enters between levels. The main quest is ten missions with a Survivor mode available for those feeling up to the challenge. The survivor mode is same as others in that the onslaught continues until you die and you see how long you can last.
