Matt Hazard was the star of the digital screen during the 1980s, serving up a host of action titles that made him the new face of gaming. Now down on his luck and out of the limelight, Hazard is given one final chance by Wally, owner of games publisher Marathon Megasoft, to prove he still has what it takes in new games titles. However, it quickly becomes clear that Wally has other motives when these games transform into reality, forcing Hazard through a series of classic game genres to survive.
Blending together every popular game cliché under the sun, Eat lead is a melting pot of game parodies. Cowboys, space marines, ninjas and wizards all find their way into the title, as well as nods to other famous franchises. Beneath its parody storyline, Eat Lead is still a polished and visually impressive action title.
Poking fun at the games many of us have grown up with, Eat lead – The Return of Matt Hazard is a surprisingly original look at the industry, as well as a solid action title in its own right.
Spoofed Retro Characters Fight Back – Help classic video game stars such as Master Chef and Captain Carpenter redeem their dignity against enemy foes like Sting Sniperscope and Sonny Tang and get to the bottom of why all these iconic characters’ worlds converge.
Intense Combat Action – Attack enemies with everything from plasma rifles, to sniper rifles and old-west six shooters, the sniper rifle turret, or use a number of different interactive melee moves to help Matt destroy Wally’s legion of back-catalogue video game characters.
Unique Level Design – An expansive level environment design reflects years of videogame history in a next-gen package including levels that are radically transformed via precisely timed “hack effects” to challenge Matt Hazard with new scenarios throughout each battle.
Strategic Point-and-Cover System – Eat Lead uses a strategic point and cover system that allows gamers to go far beyond simply hiding behind walls when they can move up to, over, between, and around any cover objects with a fluidity never before seen in a game.
Intelligent Physics System – Eat Lead makes use of the intelligent physics system that includes destructible items and smart objects, where items can be destroyed or moved to blow through cover or act as temporary safe havens throughout the game environment.
