  • Death from Above -- Fight the horde, a procedurally generated alien menace that makes every gameplay session tense, exciting, fresh, and utterly lethal.
  • Well-armed Allies -- Become one of four story-driven characters and battle through an alien-infested plot while utilizing advanced weaponry and printable guns.
