Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef is a side-scrolling shooter with a generous helping of verticality, wherein you play as a gleeful greenskin seeking revenge after being wronged by his boss. You'll trek across the surface of Luteus prime, encountering native Orks and cutting through them on your mission with all manner of ramshackle munitions at your disposal.
