Mike Leroi is the world's only hope against Armageddon. Mama Nettie, a powerful voodoo sorceress, has had a vision of the coming Apocalypse - the day that the dead will rise up from Deadside and walk the earth, conquering Liveside. Mama Nettie's only defence for the world from the coming onslaught is the Shadow Man.

The Shadow Men were ancient African warriors who were blessed by the gods and given supernatural powers. They protected their tribes from the spiritual plane known as Deadside.

While roaming around Liveside, Leroi has the ability to use different weapons such as a handgun, shotgun and machine gun. Being ambidextrous, Leroi can use a weapon or item in each hand. Other actions that can be performed are sniping, strafing, crouching, jumping and swimming. While in Deadside, Shadow Man can perform similar actions to those on Liveside, but instead of regular guns he uses the Shadow Gun -- a wraith-spitting weapon -- and Voodoo to dispose of his enemies.

This variety of gameplay is refreshing and it makes a welcome change: not having to suffer death, you just change realities, from the Livveside to the Deadside. The end is coming and it's up to Shadow Man and you to save the world from Armageddon.
