Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Every now and then, a game comes along that can only be described as special. It features ideas we've never seen before or employs old ideas in fresh new ways. It's weird and wonderful, stuffed with humor or insane concepts. There's nothing quite like it, and it manages to turn heads. Then there's the game that tries to be special but falls short of the mark.

Hell Yeah: Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is an homage to bad ‘90s platformers (review)

VentureBeat
27 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Hell Yeah: Wrath of the Dead Rabbit requires you to accept a few unusual premises. First, that the ruler of the underworld is a skeletal rabbit named Prince Ash who is a bit of a nudist with a thing for rubber ducks. Second, that someone in the year 2012 thought it would be a good idea to resurrect the trend of animal mascots with attitude from the ‘90s … and do it well.
  • Pros: These days, games that try to mimic a retro aesthetic are almost as common as those that don’t, but the point of reference is nearly always placed precisely on the Nintendo Entertainment System and Super NES. Developers want to tap into the happy memories of games like Super Mario World because they’re an almost universally beloved experience, but even back in the ‘90s, people were trying to replicate that feeling … or put their own spin on it. Characters like Sonic t...

Hell Yeah: Wrath of the Dead Rabbit

18 October 2012
  • Excerpt: You know that feeling when you’re friend posts a picture of you on a social media site and you look terrible/fat/drunk/blinking/messy/embarrassed? Multiply that feeling by 666 and you’ve got how Ash, prince of hell, feels when incriminating photos of him and his rubber ducky are leaked on the hell-ternet. You might look at Ash and wonder who on earth (in hell?

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit

Everyday Gamers
10 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Nostalgic games have been all the rage recently, looking to cash in on the fond memories of aging gamers such as myself. Hell Yeah! seems to be another step in that direction, taking the platformers of the old days, sprucing it up with fancy HD graphics and infusing a little modern humor rooted in the very games it is meant to mimic.  Will this one platform it’s way into your hearts or is it one jump sequence away from being forgotten?
  • Pros: Great humor, enjoyable game
  • Cons: NSFW language at times which is an odd fit to the game, Repetitive gameplay/mechanics

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit

GameTrailers
26 September 2012
  • Excerpt: After usurping the throne of hell, a skeletal rabbit named Ash takes some well-deserved R&R the old fashioned way: luxuriating in a hot tub with a favorite rubber ducky. Tragedy strikes when paparazzi post pics of him canoodling with the duck in the buff. Thus framed, Ash must now kill 100 monsters and get those pics back, by drilling, diving, jumping, shooting, and playing an abundance of minigames.

  • Conclusion: Instead of being made up of enjoyable traversal and exploration, the majority of Hell Yeah features by-rote stretches that pad the overall length until you face the next of your many antagonists. It's when you square off against your 100 most hated enemies that Hell Yeah reveals its true colors, and, sadly, it's also when this adventure is at its weakest. Each of these creatures has a name and a backstory, and you frequently trade barbs before a fight.
  • Pros: Responsive controls, Interesting puzzles.
  • Cons: Awful quick-time events, Distracting visual design, Verbose, cliche dialogue, The Island management subgame is nearly worthless, Punishing checkpoint system.

Hell Hath No Fury Like A Rabbit Scorned

Game Informer
25 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: An evil rabbit seeks revenge against 100 monsters in this enthralling 2D sidescroller Graphics: Colorful and comically bloody. Environments are fairly mundane, but monster designs are imaginative Sound: The soundtrack is all over place, but is mostly fantastic. A hilarious acoustic song accompanies one of the happiest levels in gaming, but other areas have grating rock melodies Playability: The big bads don't pose much challenge, but the worlds they inhabit more...

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit review

GamesRadar
25 September 2012
  • Excerpt: You can’t throw an inverted cross into the annals of gaming history without hitting a title or two that use Hell as an inspiration. As its name implies, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is the latest addition to the pile of games that’s set in the underworld, but this action platformer adds a welcome dose of humor to its plotline, helping it to avoid the moodiness that so often permeates other games of its ilk.
  • Pros: Colorful, varied levels to travel through, Over-the-top boss fights, Entertaining, upbeat soundtrack
  • Cons: Might not challenge experienced platformer fans, Little incentive to replay after beating the game, Occasional framerate issues and lockups
