Vaporum: Lockdown is an RPG from the dungeon crawler genre, inspired by the Dungeon Master, Eye of the Beholder and Legend of Grimrock series. The production is a prequel to the Vaporum released in 2017 - its action takes place in the same, steampunk universe. The authors of the previous part, the independent Fatbot Games studio, are responsible for the development and release of this title.
The action of the game is set in a world in which advanced steam technology (such as synergistic armor pieces) is very important. The script presents the events that took place before the previous game - we get a chance to learn new things about the world and characters.
Vaporum: Lockdown is a dungeon crawler. This means that we observe the action from the first person perspective and control the team of heroes. Our task is to explore locations, fight monsters and acquire new items, and gradually discover the scenario. It is worth noting that we move "in steps" (pressing a key or a button moves us forward by a specific distance) and we can rotate only by 90 degrees.
The game is based on a real-time combat system, with the possibility of stopping the action to reflect on our next step. In production you can find a wide range of opponents (with specific weak and strong points) and weapons, but the key role here is played by the development of exoskeletons of our heroes, which can be equipped with new gadgets. It is worth noting that their use requires energy, so we cannot do it recklessly. We also have the option of acquiring new abilities and armor functions - we use for this purpose material called fumium, which we collect from the bodies of defeated enemies.
In the production you can also find numerous logical puzzles, often requiring travel around the map. Among the challenges, there is no shortage of those that were not present in the previous section.
Vaporum: Lockdown can only be played alone. The basis of the game is a feature campaign.
Vaporum: Lockdown has an attractive, three-dimensional graphic design. The creators took care of a high level of detail in the locations and the heroes and monsters they met. The atmosphere, which is often closer to horror movies, is also very impressive. At the same time, however, the production is distinguished by an unusual, steampunk style.
