3D Realms and Voidpoint are proud to bring back the Build engine, which powered Duke Nukem 3D,
Blood, and Shadow Warrior, in all of its hand-crafted pixelated glory. They’ve spent a lot of time tinkering
under the hood to take advantage of new technology and techniques. Bigger levels, hundreds of new
colors, and morphing maps that transform mid-level are all just a few of the advancements made to the
Welcome to ION MAIDEN!
Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison earned her nickname as a bomb disposal expert for the Global Defense
Force. When transhumanist cult mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel unleashes a cybernetic army on Neo DC,
Shelly decides it’s time to start chucking bombs rather than diffusing them.
Her journey will leave trails of blood and gore in huge, multi-path levels filled with those famous colorful
keycards and plenty of secrets and Easter Eggs to discover behind every corner. There’s also no
regenerating health here, so stop taking cover and start running and gunning. Honestly, Ion Maiden
should probably come out on three hundred floppy disks.
Shelly’s quest to take down Dr. Heskel’s army will see her use an arsenal of weapons, all with alternate
fire modes or different ammo types. Her signature revolver, Loverboy, brings enemies pain and players
pleasure with single shots, or Shelly can fan the hammer Old West style. Shotguns are fun, but tossing
grenades down their barrels and firing explosive rounds is even better. Bowling Bombs are just as violent
and over-the-top as one would hope.
Ion Maiden laughs at the idea of constant checkpoints and straight paths through shooting galleries. But
just because this is a true old-school first-person shooter doesn’t mean there won’t be all the good new
stuff the last two decades have brought. Headshots? Hell yeah. More physics and interactivity? You
betcha. Widescreen, controller support, and Auto Saves? 3D Realms and Voidpoint took the best of both
worlds and cooked it all into a bloody stew.
