Added DiffLines:

* TwoFistedTales: A very deliberate homage to the genre.


* CriticalResearchFailure: The game takes place in 1938 yet, the P38 pistol was not produced until 1939 and the Wermarcht's R75 motorcycle wasnt produced until 1941, still both of these can be found ingame. The Bergmann Bayard 1902 Mars pistol never had a fully automatic function. The Nazi faction can be found using Russian and even American weapons, and the Russians can be found using German weapons.

Added DiffLines:

* ShortRangeShotgun: The shotgun is extremely short range, often taking at least a couple shots to kill past about a dozen feet, and being almost useless past about 20-25 feet. This makes it pretty poor against humans with guns, but decent against mummies (who charge straight at you).


* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Colonel Stein, the Soviet Colonel, and [[spoiler: Dr. Hagen]] can all take more bullets than normal Mooks, although they can all still be mowed down relatively quickly.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Colonel Stein, the Soviet Colonel, and [[spoiler: Dr. Hagen]] can all take more several times the number of bullets than as normal Mooks, although they can all still be mowed down relatively quickly.



* DeathFromAbove: A couple of bosses attack with what amounts to a massive, flaming airstrike targeted on the player's current position - attacks that are thankfully presaged by the appearance of a [[OhCrap huge, glowing rosette on the ground]].

* NoSwastikas: Despite mentions of Nazis and the Third Reich, there is not a single swastika in the game. Rather it's only Xs.



* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Quartermain in the beginning is more concerned with making money and collecting treasures. But then CharacterDevelopment kicks in.



* RareGuns: The game has a rather unique arsenal. Such firearms includes the Roth-Steyr M1908, the Bergmann-Bayard M1903 pistols, the Mauser Selbstlader M1916 and the Fedorov Avtomat rifles.

There's also the Walther Model SLD, which are double barrel flare guns, but they're depicted as shotgun pistols.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: The MG-34. With the hundred round magazine, decent damage and rate of fire; it can flush out a room full of baddies. However you cannot jump, move slowly, and cannot use your compass or flashlight without having to drop the gun.


''Deadfall Adventures'' is a 3D FirstPersonShooter action-adventure by Polish developer The Farm 51 and published by Nordic Games in 2013, for PC and Xbox 360. The game is set just before WorldWarII and follows James Lee Quatermain, great-grandson of Allan Quatermain (the hunter/adventurer created by [[Creator/HRiderHaggard H. Rider Haggard]]), who has been hired to seek out the [[AncientArtifact "Heart of Atlantis"]], alongside US agent and former colleague Jennifer Goodwin, before the Nazis/Russians do.

The game combines modern first-person shooter combat with puzzle solving and treasure hunting. ''Deadfall Adventures'' is basically Two-Fist Tales: The Game, with elements reminiscent of ''IndianaJones'', ''TheMummy'', and a bit of ''Wolfenstein''.

* ShoutOut: When placing the Tear of Isis in its receptacle, Quatermain muses wryly: [[Franchise/IndianaJones "It belongs in a museum"]], followed by a wish to see the proceeds in his bank account.

Added DiffLines:

* RevolversAreJustBetter: Averted. A pair of Webley revolvers are your default sidearms; they have infinite ammo, but have a below average rate of fire and a VERY long reload time, as well as strictly average damage. You can pick up a variety of semi-auto pistols, they have finite ammo but can fire and reload faster than the revolvers.

Added DiffLines:

* NonPlayerCompanion: Jen Goodwin accompanies you for most of the game and can hold her own in a shootout, but for most major firefights and puzzles she tends to hang back and let you sort things out rather than charging in and doing the work for you. [[spoiler: Dr. Hagen]] also follows you during the middle levels set in the Artic.
** GameplayAllyImmortality: Your allies seem to be unkillable, even a direct hit from a grenade will just knock them down for a few seconds. This is balanced out by the fact that they tend to hang back and camp the entrance instead of charging into the middle of a firefight.

* MeleeATrois: Mummies and enemy soldiers will fight each other as well as against Quatermain, although other than the first level the two are rarely encountered in the same area.

* PuzzleBoss:
** Averted with Colonel Stein. Because he's firing a machine gun from behind elevated cover, the game wants you to destroy the two supports of the platform he's standing on so he'll plunge to his death. However, you can just flank him and mow him down normally (he can take more bullets than a regular Mook, but still dies pretty quickly). However the game still requires you to blow up the platform to trigger Stein's death cutscene, even if you kill him and his men with bullets.
** The final boss is ImmuneToBullets, so you need to figure out a way to use the environment to kill him.



* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: The Soviet Colonel sounds like a Frenchman trying to sound Russian.
