An apocalyptic action shooter set in the midst of an alien invasion. Most humans and animals have already been wiped off the planet, the eco system has been altered to suit the needs of the aliens, and the air has been made unbreathable for most earth creatures, including humans. Few humans are still alive. They are scattered, hiding in underground shelters and their fight for survival is a hopeless one. Desperate needs call for desperate measures, which could bring even more destruction.
Your mission: Survival.

Nice game and concept!
And why the heck there's crows?
They're immune to the poison air?

Awesome game dude!

SeethingSwarm responds:

Thank you! :)

A great side-scrolling shooter! I loved the story and really enjoyed finding all of the hidden areas and other survivors. I think you did an awesome job with the weapons system in how you can upgrade your current weapons and buy new ones. You definitely scaled the challenges appropriately too. The graphics are great and the sounds are fitting. Everything adds to the atmosphere of the whole invasion narrative. An awesome flash game; I'm definitely interested in checking out 2 & 3!

SeethingSwarm responds:

Awesome! Thanks :)

The Earth Taken series is one that I come back to repeatedly. I have beaten All the games at least 5 times each. It was beautifully done. Amazing job SeethingSwarm.

SeethingSwarm responds:

That's great! It's so nice to know that people enjoy this series, thanks for the kind words :)

It has a feeling of RPG's to it, I like it. The environment, music, and sounds are also pretty good. The shelters kinda remind me of the Fallout vaults. Anyway, great game.

SeethingSwarm responds:

Oh thanks, glad you liked it! :)
