In the world of the future interplanetary terrorism is a big threat to the universe, but since the terrorists are not easy to find or target, an all out war can't be waged against it. Instead the Alien World Exploration organization (which rules the universe) sends bounty hunters across the universe to planets suspected to harbor terrorist bases. You play one of these bounty hunters who gets sent to a world where the most dangerous terrorist group, the New Crusaders, are thought to have their HQ.
The game is an informal sequel to 1994's Robinson's Requiem and you proceed through the game in exactly the same manner. You must gather clues and learn of your whereabouts in a fps-like environment while managing every aspect of your body in an attempt to "survive" the hostile alien world. You can play in action mode which removes most of the micro-managing, or in the standard simulation mode which boasts 22 ways to die (including hypothermia, untreated infections, etc.). Graphics are SVGA and the game offers single player gameplay only.
Deus is an action\survival\adventure game and the second and best game of the Robinson's Requiem series. Deus was made in 1996 by Silmarils.
You start the game on some unknown hostile planet with a dirty smelly old parachute that looks like it's going to fall apart with only your fists to defend yourself. The main objective of Deus is to escape the planet and at the same time keep yourself alive, which is not an easy job.
There are two game modes in Deus, Arcade and simulation. In arcade mode the game is much easier because you don't have to worry about dying from food poisoning, infection and other things. In simulation mode you have to be very very carful of what you do or you can get killed very quick. The thing I like about Deus is there are so many ways to heal yourself and survive such as making yourself some clothes.
On the planet there are a number of enemies and animals to watch out for such as snakes and birds. There is also a nice selection of weapons, such as a knife, spear and a bow and arrow and of course your fists. One main enemy to watch out for is infection, poisoning and loss of blood. I can't count how many times I have died from these things.
Sound in Deus is quite nice and varied, from the natural sounds around you to the sound of you stabbing some one to death. Graphics have much improved from Robinson's Requiem, now you can tell what you are looking at, also the enemy's are nicely detailed as well. The animals also look quite nice, except the birds. Also there is plenty of game play in Deus due to it's two game play modes and it's difficulty, that is if you don't get bored from dying all the time. Although there are a few problems with Deus such as crashing, dying and getting stuck so save often or you may just be wasting your time.
There are a total 22 ways to die in Deus, the most easy are food poisoning, infection and hypothermia. Also make sure your food and water is clean before eating \ drinking it, try boiling the water or using water purification tablets on it. The controls on Deus are also very hard, I recommend you use the key pad to move and enter to attack also use CTRL to jump.
I recommend you first play Deus on Arcade mode as it is more easy till you get used to it. So download Deus and play this great great (but hard) game. My rating = 3 (I would give it a 4 but it's quite a hard game.)
TIPS: * Take your time looking around. * Monitor your temperature if it's 37 or over you have some form of, infection or poisoning. if it's below 36.2 you are cold and should find a place to rest. * If the blue bar get's to low drink water even if it's not pure. * If the yellow bar gets to low eat any food you can find. * If you see blue stars on the screen you are almost dead. * Always bandage your wounds to prevent infection. * Only use antibiotics when needed.
Correctly realizing that the "survival simulation" in its earlier fiasco Robinson's Requiem holds great potential but was fit only for suicidal gamers, Silmarils revamped the game engine, cranked down the difficulty level dramatically and put you back on the dreaded planet Alcibiade-- as a bounty hunter this time. Survivors from Robinson Requiem will soon find that the planet is MUCH more hospitable now, and it is actually possible to bandage and cure yourself of the various diseases. It's finally fun to play doctor/survivalist/hunter in the best Robinson Crusoe tradition.
