It’s a game you play until you die and then start again. But you do this with a team of four players. The levels are generated each time you play, but cleverly balanced so you have to rely on teammates if you are to survive. You need different characters in your team to do well: Gunners have powerful guns, Scouts are fast and light the way, Drillers can chew through solid rock and the Engineer supports the team with defensive structures and turrets.
Each time you set out you must also choose carefully between various powerful weapons and advanced gadgets: flamethrowers, gatling guns, portable platform launchers, and much, much more. And don’t forget to bring torches to light up the dark. The missions have side-quests like finding a particular mineral or collecting alien eggs as well as coming out alive.
