This game has been developed for over a year now and is based on the intention to give you the old school shooter feeling from the 90s. ASSETCREW is a team of currently three members who work on different aspects of the game - mainly divided into programming, visuals and audio.

The Retro FPS template is available here (Unity Asset Store):

Thanks for the presentation of our game. 

Not sure if this is a bug or not but on the Research Labs level i tried to open a locked door and for the rest of the level my gun models were invisible and i couldn't shoot until i found another gun.

Thanks for your feedback. We will check this.

We have published the Retro FPS template here: https://assetcrew.itch.io/retro-fps

This is so damn good. The gore was awesome. The graphics are Minecraft + Wolf3d.

The only thing I might say is you need to add "magazine" counts to the guns for realism (but maybe that's completely against the point here).

Also, is the Iron Giant robot killable? 

Ya'll have my support!

Thanks a lot for your feedback. You can kill the robot by shooting at its belly. There you will see a red kind of healthbar which becomes more red the more you shoot at it. I will think about the magazine point. Thanks.

We have updated the game in order to provide a map restart. So in case your alter-ego dies and the game over screen pops up, just click on try again to reload the current map. That way you do not have to restart the entire game from the beginning.

Also we have added the tag "made with Retro FPS" as this is our core template for this game. We will provide it soon through the Unity Asset Store.

We enjoyed this game!!  Pretty awesome retro-styled game!!   It was fun!! 


Thank you for the review! It was a lot fun to watch. We will consider your feedback and will try to improve the gameplay accordingly. 

Hoping to see a challenge increase in the update, the zombies are nice but are very easy to take out. :)


Thank you very much for the review! You mastered the game very well and i see that the zombies were too easy for you :) If you want you can check the last map for two additional secret weapons. BR

Two weapons? WHAT? I thought I found everything. :) 

Really solid start here! All the weapons I found were really satisfying to use and the gore was top notch! Though overall, I think the game could use a bit of a speed boost, it seems like it takes some inspiration from the shooters of old, and it certainly looks the part, but it lacks the speed. I can't say for sure though, since the respawn to the beginning after the boss fight was enough for me to call it quits. I'd love to see where this goes though!

Thanks a lot for your review and your feedback! We will try to consider your ideas in our next update(s). And sorry for the respawn to the beginning! This is one of the higher priority tasks we are currently working on.
