Codename Tenka / LifeForce Tenka Distinctive Software / Psygnosis 1997

The sinister World Government building looms heavy over the desolate streets of New York. Rumours spread like wildfire, warning of genetic experimentation within its heavily secured walls. As Tenka, member of the militant resistance group Twisted Freak, it's up to you to infiltrate the World Government buildings and uncover the secrets that lie within. Using a totally 3D real-time environment Tenka features all the atmospheric lighting effects that the format has to offer and stretches those capabilities to the limit. Dozens of polygon-generated enemies to take on, a huge armoury to choose from ranging from automatic weapons and lasers to mini rocket launchers and homing missiles. It's a decent FPS game from Psygnosis that was more successful on the Playstation than PC. You are Joseph B. Tenka from Extrevius 328, a corporate conglomerate manufacturing plant for deadly warriors, known only as Bionoids. Tenka has been listed for transformation into a Bionoid, which is a half man - half droid, and that prospect does not please you at all. So you don a warfare suit and go off on a one-man quest to destroy corporate plans. The story is explained by some rather nice FMV cut scenes throughout the game. The gameplay will be familiar to anyone who has played DOOM and countless clones. Set over 20 stages, each level in the game is mission-based, and your mission is given in a nice briefing accompanied by a graphical display of your objectives. The game includes the usual array of high-tech weapons and a variety of Bionoids and other creatures to kill. Level design is average, but the creepy atmosphere is evoked pretty well through sound cues and surprise attacks. All in all, it's an enjoyable and atmospheric shooter that starts out like a DOOM clone, but makes you feel like an episode from Aliens.
