Free Steam Key: Chaos Domain
The Developer says:
Chaos Domain is a game about shooting bad people in the face.
Apart from that, it is also a run and gun platformer, powered by Unreal Engine. The game is highly influenced by games from 8-bit and 16-bit era, including Contra/Probotector series, as well as titles like Abuse and Doom Troopers.
The game is set on a huge spaceship occupied by chaos cultists, where the main character (who clearly looks like a hi-tech version of the god Anubis) must kill everyone in sight. The game is obviously not story-driven, it’s all about action.
Players can upgrade weapons and purchase special items that can boost their performance. Local co-op for 2 players is available.

Here is all you need to know about Chaos Domain: One hit kills you, levels can be up to five minutes long, and there are no checkpoints. I’m going to talk about many more aspects of the game because that’s kinda my thing, but the key takeaway here is how poorly balanced the challenge is. It’s a problem so huge that regardless of what you think of the rest, it makes the game virtually unplayable. But don’t fret, the rest is garbage too.
Chaos Domain dumps you into the cyberboots of future Anubis, fighting hundreds of cyberdudes along wholly unremarkable cybercorridors. Levels have only two components, hallways of fixed height that only scroll in one direction, and shafts that you can platform up and down freely. Platforms mostly hold enemies that fire slow, creeping bullets and die in one hit, but can also be laden with health pickups (more like 1-ups), new guns, or point-granting ankhs. I will go ahead and tell you now, I have no idea what is up with the Egyptian theme, especially since it only extends to the player character and point items.
There are ten chapters, three levels to a chapter. They take a few minutes to run through, assuming you are quick on the draw and don’t touch any of the numerous enemies, bullets, explosives, explosive barrels, electrified floors, or glitchy crushers littering the levels. One touch of anything instantly kills you, respawning you in place a moment later and costing you one of your three lives. Lose all three and you start the whole level over. The problem here should be apparent, because as early as the second chapter you’ll be fighting shooting dudes, running dudes, grenade dudes, and rocket launcher dudes all at once. -Audish
