Deadlight is the fast-paced 2D survival shooter from Spanish studio Tequlia Works. It resembles a grittier version of Shadow Complex, but instead of exploring and upgrading your character, you'll spend most of your time relying on only a handful of weapons and running away from the undead horde. Here's a snippet of our Deadlight review.

"Deadlight's control scheme could not be more appropriate for fast paced 2D survival. When much of the objectives involves running away, being able to dash is obviously helpful, not to mention the ability to cushion building-to-building roof landings by rolling upon impact. When Wayne comes across a door boarded up with thick planks, he doesn't take each plank out one at a time; he simple barges through them by dashing. He also has a realistic wall jump, just not with the acrobatic excess of Ninja Gaiden and Batman in the NES games. Further adding a sense of realism is the fact that some of these moves expend stamina, which is replenished when those moves aren’t used."
