Epic Games and Chair Entertainment's Xbox LIVE Arcade title Shadow Complex will be here before you know it. The game is releasing August 19, which, hold on a second, isn't very far off! Time sure does fly when you are sharing naughty Google Image search results with your co-workers and having serious discussions about Destro.
Besides it being possible to beat the Metroidvania-style game in under 2 hours (if you're really good), and its $15 price tag, we now have one more interesting tidbit to share: the Achievements. They are located after the break, in case you are in a rush or something.
One of the Achievements is for 100% completion, while another asks that you only obtain 13% or less of the items, which sort of goes hand in hand with the 2 hour speedrun factoid. The rest are kind of standard Achievements, but I do really enjoy the "get 100 soldiers to scream" one.
LET'S GET PUNCHY (15) Melee 5 soldiers
BOMBA PUNTER (20) Punt 20 Bombas
MY HEAD A-SPLODE (20) Get 50 head shots
MAKE 'EM SCREAM (20) Get 100 soldiers to scream
TO KILL A BLACKBIRD (15) Destroy the helicopter attacking the Vice President
LOOK OUT! (5) Kill a soldier with a Bomba
WALKIN' ON WATER (5) Make it from one end of lake to the other in hyper-speed
HERO (50) Complete the game on any difficulty setting
COMPLETIONIST (20) Complete the game with 100% of the items
MINIMALIST (10) Complete the game with less than 13% of the items
PROVEN GROUNDS (10) Complete the Proving Grounds
SERIOUS COMPLEX (10) Level-up to experience level 50
