Expert Review

  • Excerpt: I wish I could invent a snazzy introduction for this review. You know, perhaps begin with a moody description of the game's dank environs, or attempt to liken the experience to a common life occurrence. Unfortunately, that's just not happening.

  • Summary: I have some really fond memories of playing through Gauntlet on the NES. "Red Warrior needs food, badly!" it would warn, reminding all of us that the Red Warrior player SUCKED. "Red Warrior, your life force is running out!" Then the annoying heartbeat-esque sound effect would kick in.

Hammerwatch for Linux Review

7 September 2013
  • Conclusion: I can't stop thinking that Hammerwatch might have been a much better game if it incorporated two different mechanics, a random level generation and a much better action curve that doesn't punish players in such a drastic manner.
  • Pros: + Varied monsters, + Beautiful music, + Secret areas, + Nice graphics
  • Cons: - Too hard even on medium, - The gameplay balance seems to be off, - Too much distance between checkpoints

Test : Hammerwatch

20 August 2013
  • Summary: Joli comme tout, hardcore comme un bon vieux dungeon crawler et clairement bourré de bonnes intentions, Hammerwatch fait l'erreur d'oublier que les pads de ce millénaire intègrent plus de deux boutons.
  • Pros: Pixel art "amélioré" du plus bel effet, Bossfights bien secoués, Délicieusement hardcore avec le bon groupe en co-op, L'éditeur de niveaux
  • Cons: Intérêt très limité en solo, Pas de génération procédurale des niveaux, Frappe, frappe, frappe, pouvoir, frappe, frappe..., Musique répétitive
