Author's Description: ATOMIC BUTCHER V 1.1

This game is a jump'n'run with strong emphasis on action and violence.
It takes place in a post-nuclear world, and you play the role of a strong but dumb mutant who is sent out by the leaders of the shelter he used to spend his rotten life in in order to bring home meat (because the food reserves run low).

So much for the story.

The controls are very similar to those used in the old classic game 'Abuse':
You move around with the keyboard, and use the mouse for aiming.

Your objective in every level is to collect a minimum amount of meat, which can be achieved by killing an enemy and collecting its corpse.

*360� seamless aiming
*perfect moon walk of our "hero"
*7 distinctive weapons
*47 different enemies
*10 levels full of unnecessary violence
*lots of secrets
*a powerful particle system
*a simple scripting engine
*even more unnecessary violence

the weakest system this game was tested on was a:

P-II/400 MHz
Matrox graphics card (exact model unknown, but it was really old)
Windows ME

It was playable on this system, but we can't guarantee that the game will run smoothly on older systems since it simply wasn't tested.

So, everything left to say is:
Download the game, play it for a while and if you feel like it, you might post something in the forum or drop us a line at

We hope that you enjoy playing the game as much as we enjoyed creating it (well, most of the time anyway...)

If you played through version 1.0 and still have the savegames lying around, you might try beating the endboss again - you will get the chance to hear 2 new songs and (most important) will get the cheats!

Overall Rating: 9.4
  • 10Atomic Butcher's gameplay is amazing. It reminds me of the '90s platformers such as Alien Carnage, Abuse, etc... The plot is simple but surprisingly holds your attention. The graphics are top notch for this genre and won't dissapoint. The sound and music are good too! Download it now! 10/10!
  • 9Great graphics, very cool menu presentation, heck I even liked watching the credits! Music is about a 9.5 out of 10, graphics a 9 out of 10, sound is 8 out of 10, but overall a 9 out of 10. Can't wait to play it some more :)
  • 9Excellent game, very well made Fallout like story. I love this game because it's fun to play it, music makes great atmosphere and everything what Butcher say in game is very funny...
