Syndrome is a sci-fi themed survival horror game that takes places inside a drifting spaceship.
The game is played in first person view.
While exploring, the player can pick up and interact with objects like doors, keypads or computer consoles and use weapons (both melee and long range).
The enemy units are powerful and numerous, which means that the player must be stealthy and evade combat when possible.
There are weapons aboard the ship, but ammo is very limited so it must be wisely spent.
