Ghostrunner is an action game developed by the Polish studio One More Level, also known for creating God's Trigger.
Ghostrunner takes players to a world destroyed by a global disaster, where the last bastion of humanity is a city in a giant tower. Its designer, known as the Architect, died years ago under mysterious circumstances, and now the Keymaster rules the cit with an iron hand. The community is divided into castes, the membership to which is determined by the implants installed in the person's childhood. Besides, violence and poverty reign here. All this led rebelion.
Players assume the role of a hero endowed with supernatural abilities that allow him to fight both in the physical world and in cyberspace, so that he is the only one who is able to face the Keymaster. The protagonist climbs consecutive floors of the tower, while discovering both its secrets and those of his own past.
In Ghostrunner, players observe the action from the first person perspective (FPP). During the game they travel through gloomy locations illuminated by the glow of colourful neon lights. The exploration is made more attractive by the possibility of climbing the elements of the surroundings, jumping over chasms, and even running on walls. In addition, the protagonist has a kind of "energy whip" which allows him to cover longer distances in the air and is useful in combat. Enemies can be eliminated by surprise or in open combat with the use of melee weapons. Interestingly enough, one accurate attack is enough to kill an enemy. In addition, creators allow players to slow down time, for example to avoid enemy fire in time.
Ghostrunner has high quality three-dimensional visuals. Artistic direction, detailed textures, and finally animations of the hero and his opponents are bound to be appreciated by many players. It is complemented by a catchy, atmospheric soundtrack intensifying the fast pace of the game.
