Deadlock is a FPS mixing environmental puzzles and platformer elements. Your main opponents are the robots and turrets who maintain the Tower's integrity: they will use their force fields to propel you into the void, which would certainly result in you being disintegrated by the Tower’s cleaning system (basically, huge, red, nasty lasers). Fortunately, your avatar is equipped with the ‘Switch Gun’, a powerful tool that grants you the ability to switch on/off most of the Tower’s elements, like robots, turrets or jumpers (platforms that can propel you far far away). The gun will allow you to temporarily stun your opponents, to open new passages and finally, to create your own way through the multiple areas of the structure. The game also features tricky platforming sequences that require you to accurately use double-jumps and air control in order to avoid falling. Chaining jumps while avoiding enemy fire is a situation often experienced in Deadlock!
