About Singularity

In Singularity, you fight your way through an ever-shifting environment haunted with time ravaged creatures, while sudden time waves hurl you back and forth between 1950 and the present day. Use your wits and the perfect weapon -- the Time Manipulation Device -- to unravel the conspiracy on the remote island of Katorga-12. Armed with powerful, advanced weaponry and this experimental Time Manipulation Device, fight enemies from the past, the present, and abominations caught somewhere in between.

Summary

Some will deem this an instant classic. Blasting heads clean off shoulders has never been so much fun.

We like

  • The classic shooter feel
  • The range of prototype weapons and enjoyable time manipulation powers
  • The location of Katurga-12 and the mysterious goings-on

We dislike

  • The lack of ammo when there's so many mutants to kill
  • The predictable AI that follow the same behavioral patterns if you die

  • Game of the Month: June 2010

    Well, there we have it – summer’s arrived, and half a year’s worth of gaming is already behind us. Unfortunately, that means only one thing; we’re about to enter the perpetually dry and dismal July/August period, where sub-standard games come in abundance as companies tireles...
