Sublevel Zero: Stream it on NVIDIA SHIELD with GeForce NOW
1994’s Descent took gamers on a stomach-churning thrill ride through a labyrinth of tunnels and corridors filled with enemies. This week’s GeForce NOW release, Sublevel Zero, is an unapologetic and welcome blast of nostalgia (airsick bags optional)! Members can purchase this title now for $14.99, and play it instantly on SHIELD. (Purchase (also?) includes a Steam digital download key for your PC.)
How does Sublevel Zero Compare to Descent?
Like Descent, Sublevel Zero is a first-person shooter featuring six degrees of freedom. You pilot a spacecraft through a vast underground complex to search for technology and artifacts that will help you survive against waves of invading enemies. Unlike Descent, Sublevel Zero’s levels are procedurally generated, so they’re never the same twice—and you’ll need to use your wits to outmaneuver foes that often outnumber and outgun you.
Sublevel Zero Gameplay
When you die, that’s it: there are no “do-overs” or checkpoints here to save you. Conserve your resources, discover life-saving power-ups, blast your enemies, find the core of the maze, grab the goodies, and rinse and repeat for bigger and better rewards. Die and you start over again in a game world constructed of an entirely new series of randomly generated levels. The good news is you get to keep any items you managed to unlock before you died and use them during your next game.
