Originally released for MS-DOS all the way back in 1997, Shadow Warrior was the lighthearted charming cousin to Doom, and it’s 90’s era clones. What set it apart was the game’s ability to utilize melee combat, which was implemented seamlessly. Whether you were mowing down foes with bullets or your katana, the combat was always intensely satisfying. The good news is, you can now relive these fond memories with Android’s latest release of Shadow Warrior Classic Redux.
As you would expect, this 90’s era first-person shooter is rated Mature 17+. That means you will find all of the blood and tongue-in-cheek humor that defined the series intact in all of its glory. You will also find support for a wide selection of devices including the NVIDIA SHIELD TV. There is even controller support built in for those that want more precise controls on their tablets and phones. If you do not have a controller DevolverDigital has built in highly customizable touch controls, thus guaranteeing a preferred control method no matter the device used. Google Play Games is present as well, though achievements are the only feature stipulated on the Play Store listing. Frankly, no matter how you slice it, DevolverDigital has shown that they are targeting core gamers. A refreshing sight to behold indeed.

You pay once and receive the entirety of this remastered classic. If you are a fan of 90’s era first-person shooting action, there is little reason not to pick this title up.
