KillThings


KillThings, by Orm of Digi Tallis is a first-person shoot 'em up in a similar vein to Wolfenstein but alas it was never finished. It's playable and I must admit to being impressed by the speed of the game's engine and its map function works like the one in Doom, which I really liked. Sadly, there is no sound and very little to do other than wandering the stark corridors looking for a bug-eyed stickman! But there is a level editor if you're feeling bravely creative?

This is never going to replace Wolfenstein or Substation but I'm always fascinated by oddities like this and impressed by the hopes and dreams of what some developers were trying to create. However, it's also a huge shame when these dreams come to a halt (the 'readme' explains a great deal) but at least we have this demo to play with.

   
The map is superb and moves around just as in Doom (left). Make your own levels using the editor? Go on!! (right)
