Shadowgrounds is arcade style top-down shoot 'em up for modern generation. The plot, which involves distant space colony invaded by shadow-loving monsters, develops throughout the game.

There are several different weapons to choose from and each can be upgraded as player sees it fit. Some weapons have more upgrades than others. Explosive barrels and other objects can be used to increase the body-count. And yes, there are big bosses to shoot out as well.

It's not all mindless carnage though, as the real-time lighting has been integrated into the gameplay itself. Most monsters don't like light and rather stay in the shadows, making your portable light important part of the gameplay. Monsters also get blinded for a short time if you point the light straight at their eyes. Together with more or less destructible settings, Shadowgrounds offers one of the most interactive environments in top-down arcade shooters.

Audiovisual department has features, such as the already mentioned real-time lighting, atmospheric sounds and gameplay-supporting soundtrack.
