Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.2 is a third-person shooter action game developed and published by the company, Ritual Entertainment. In this game, the player takes on the role of Julie, who is a warrior set on defending the planet Eden from Gith. The story is set 30 years after the last scene of its predecessor, Heavy Metal 2000. Julie and her group have become residents of Eden, and they discover that it has magical water that prevents the planet’s inhabitants from growing old. Despite the presence of a powerful protective shield around the planet, strange and deadly bugs manage to infiltrate the shield and start invading the planet. These creatures, which are controlled by Gith, completely destroy the force field with the help of a series of explosive asteroids. Julie and her companions must find a way to reset the shield and stop Gith from bringing their old enemies back to life.
The game consists of three main parts. The first one requires the player to explore the city, interact with other characters, and accomplish various tasks for them in exchange for goods. When the city is ransacked by Gith’s minions, Julie must look for innovative ways to defeat the enemies. Once the battle is over, the player is transported to the second part of the game – the swamp. This section features some platform-jumping sequences and puzzles, while the third and last part contains the final battle with the boss.
