Soldat 2 is a two-dimensional shooter which is a continuation of the popular Soldat from 2002. The production offers single- and multiplayer modes and emphasises additional user-created content. The game was developed by Michal "mm" Marcinkowski from the Polish independent studio Transhuman Design (we are talking about the authors of successful shooter Butcher and action game King Arthur's Gold). This company is also the publisher of the game.
In Soldat 2, the game is watched from the side - from the side-scrolling perspective. The player's main task is to eliminate enemies on the other side (both in terms of the team and the arena, although you can move around the levels quite freely). The clashes take place on randomly generated arenas (there are several types of levels available).
In some modes, we have the ability to specify the our character class. This defines the available skills and weapons. In other cases, all the heroes function according to exactly the same rules. We can also partially adjust the character's appearance, as well as the equipment he uses. While playing, we also find vehicles and can even partially destroy the board. However, the most important thing here is, without a doubt, dexterity and sensitivity.
An important feature of Soldat 2 is support for mods and user-created content - we have a fully functional level editor here.
In Soldat 2, we can play alone or with others. However, the main element of the game is the online multiplayer mode. We have three modules here - classic, class-based and experimental/sandbox. It's worth noting that the creators of Soldat 2 took care of dedicated servers for online multiplayer mode in order to provide the best conditions for competition.
Soldat 2 has an interesting graphic design, which was made in the 2.5D convention. This means that although the game is played in two dimensions, there are three-dimensional elements in the graphics, which gives the impression of depth on the boards, and character models are better animated. The light effects accompanying various explosions and gunshots are also solid.
