An evil corporation called Golden Bell manufactures a drug called Healthy Family that actually turns its addicts into mutants and forces them to do Golden Bells dirty work. Now they have kidnapped your son, Red Chief, and it’s up to you, Victor Chopski, with your wife, Maria, strapped to your back to get him back.

Nitro Family is a first person shooter in which you wield two weapons one in each hand while carrying your wife on your back. She wields a whip, which she will use automatically when an enemy gets to close decapitating them. She will also fly ahead on command and carpet bomb areas with hydrogen gas. Use three different combo (one weapon in each hand) weapons and four different regular (one hand only) weapons to slay your enemies. Each of the “combo” weapons is upgradeable and the regular weapons can be purchased along the way from the scantly clad Lisa. Use the combo weapons to “juggle” your enemies for more Golden Bell credits to spend. Making high combo counts or giving a lot of damage to multiple enemies at the same time using explosive weapons like double rocket launcher or grenade launcher will make you enter Ecstasy mode. While in Ecstasy mode every thing slows down and your firepower damage and jump ability becomes double. Along the way you will find armor, ammunition and health in the form of food to pick up. Fight your way through 15 different locations that include Latin America, South East Asia, China, Russia and U.S.

Nitro Family is a single player game with the ability to play co-op mode on LAN or the Internet.
