The game starts with three weapons available and each of which can be used simultaneously. These are machine gun, flamethrower and grenade launcher.

Machine gun is a universal weapon that uses .308 ammo, but does little damage to certain enemies unless upgraded.

MGunUpgradesP

Flamethrower is good for dealing with organic lifeforms and pretty useful as a shielding from the swarms of enemies.

FlamerUpgradesP

Grenade launcher does a lot of damage, very efficient against armored enemies, but requires experience to use, the ammunition is scarce and heavy to carry.

Shotgun, powerful at close to medium range against groups of enemies, can be unlocked with the in game resource - Moon Resources Corp. points (MRC points). It also can be used to break through the weakened structures.

ShotgunUpgradesP

Three more weapons and ammo for them will be available to unlock with resource points in game - hand cannon, minigun and rocket launcher.

UPGRADES

Every weapon, its ammunition and astronaut equipment has up to 6 upgrades, 3 upgrades minimum. This brings amount of upgrades for only weapons and ammo to more than 50. Carrying capacity of ammunition can also be upgraded and will have 12 levels each.

UpgradeCards

Looks cool! I'll try this game out sometime soon, it looks like a cool combo between Metroid and Quake.

Not that the teaser trailer was bad or anything, it's just a lot more atmospheric when playing it.The art style comes out more too. Perhaps a small intro/teaser to the story would have been nice, set the tone. Good work!
