About This Game
Painkiller is a survival horror first-person shooter video game developed by People Can Fly and published by DreamCatcher Interactive in 2004.
The game is inspired by classic titles like Quake and Doom with the emphasis on killing large numbers of monsters. The game is divided into five chapters, each approximately five levels long. The player’s goal is to get through each level, from start to finish, by slaughtering hundreds of monsters.
One of the most important aspects of the game is its diversity. Each level features a new location with various themes and scenery styles. These levels include castles, monasteries, an opera house, Venice, cemeteries, etc. The monsters are also very different, on almost every level. There are five “boss” levels, where the player fights a boss.
