Ades - 3d fps

Hi there, I have just been looking at some of the games from the developer 'gameactive' (The same people that made 'Athanos' the myst style game). They have a 3D FPS game with a sci-fi theme called 'ADES'. Well, it isn't really a FPS, as there is no shooting involved, but there could be some FPS games coming from this developer as they seem to make some good almost-FPS games using Unity3D. There is a lite version of the game which I downloaded, and the graphics are excellent - they remind me a of the last levels in half-life 2 with the techy, computer, matrix walls. The framerate stays very smooth and the controls work fine with the double analogue sticks. Anyway, I just thought I'd tell you as this app seems to have gone unoticed, and it is actually pretty good and has some potential to be a great game. So, download the free version, have a little play and tell me what you think

Well despite the devs referring to it as a FPS, just from the screenshots and the description, it appears to be more of a 3DMaze style game. Graphics look decent mind.

Yeah, it is just a maze game (so far), although the graphics are impressive.

Yes, there are no guns or guys to shoot which means that it is a FPS, but without the 'S' part. But this app is far from sketchy. I downloaded the lite version and the controls work well, the gameplay is smooth - the FPS is excellent, and it hasn't crashed once.

Does any one know if there are any plans to add guns and things to shoot at?

Unless there are some puzzles along the way it would get boring rather quick without the FPS part?

This game kinda looks like half life.
