Hi there!

I remember a couple years ago a small developer came out with a shooter/fighting hybrid. I think the main character had a long magic or technology based pole he used, and had a female partner that ran around with him. It was third person, but may have had first person hand to hand combat. It was based on a very weird planet and the inhabitants were quite strange aliens too. The closest I could come to it would be the look of Precursors by Deep Shadows, the makers of Boiling Point. I think Precursors, and maybe this game I am looking for had "organic" weapons? Or at least used animal parts as ammo?

The game had a very weird name too. A name that didn't have any sense. so rather than "adventures on a strange planet", it had a nonsensical name like Zygbiion.

I believe it was available on PC and 360 but only as a download.

I have a stinking suspicion it was mentioned on this site, but without knowing the name, I cannot search for it!

I appreciate any help you can give me on this. As it really is bugging me!

Thanks in advance!

It sounds like something Capcom would make.

It sounds a lot like Zeno Clash:

Kinda sounds like Zeno Clash but not quite... Nothing else springing to mind though.

Wow! Got the answer in about 10 mins! Thanks guys - you are spot on! I knew a lot about the gameplay, so hopefully that helped you all, but without a game name I was stumped for how to find it!

Thanks everyone - right first time and a weight of my mind - now off to You Tube to see a couple video's and then to Steam or wherever to download! It was just one of these games I wanted to get, but other titles kept getting in the way! :)

It's quite a unique game, so have fun.

It's more than "quite unique"; it's a parade for the joys of imagination - bursting with amazing characters, stories, and scenes. It's also a really solid and satisfying fighting game. Definitelydefinitely buy it.

Thanks again everyone - only $5 on Steam,so will have to go for it! :)

This is why it popped back into my mind, because there are just to many game clones out now - grey corridor shooters, elves and mages in rpg's and those sports cars going around in circles!

Worth noting that while obviously inferior, the 360 version does have coop which is pretty neat.
