Helltaker Review

There has been a rise of quirky, meta aware indie games recently, likely spearheaded by some fantastic hits like LISA and UNDERTALE. These games have a likeable cast of characters and has a distinct sense of humor that feels like its always winking at the player. Helltaker is one of the latest games to follow this trend and it's easily one of the most solid ones despite its short length.

Do note that you need Steam to install this game. Once that's done, go to this link to install it.

The premise of Helltaker is tongue in cheek and straight to the point. The main character wakes up one day with a dream - to have a harem of demon girls - and heads straight to hell to fulfill his dream. From there, you recruit a new demon girl into your harem every level, all with their own design and personality. Each level has a limited number of moves and you have to figure out a way to reach the demon girl before you die.

Considering this game is completely free, this game is very high quality. The soundtrack is amazingly catchy and never outstays its welcome, the gameplay is tight and well designed, and the general audio design is top tier. On top of that, each demon is appealing in their own way and the visual style all meshes together extremely well.

Overall, Helltaker is an incredibly fun game for the amount of money you put into it - nothing. Take an hour or two out of your day to play it.

Helltaker is a freewareindiepuzzle-adventure game with dating sim elements designed by Polish[1] developer Łukasz Piskorz, also known as vanripper. It was released in May 2020 for Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux, and is described as 'a short game about sharply dressed demon girls.'[2][3][4][5]

Plot[edit]

The plot follows a man named the Helltaker, who has a dream in which he has a harem of demon girls. Waking up, he decides to journey down into Hell to make his dream come true. He convinces the girls to join him throughout the events of the game, and after succeeding, although it is stated his time with them will be short and painful, he decides that he still enjoys it.

Gameplay[edit]

The player proceeds through a series of puzzle stages with the end goal of reaching a demon girl, answering her question appropriately, and incorporating her into the player's demon harem. Each puzzle stage involves pushing stones and skeleton soldiers around a two-dimensional top-down grid akin to Sokoban while keeping within a set turn limit, while also avoiding spike traps and collecting key items.[6] After reaching the goal, the demon girl for that particular stage will ask a question in which the player must infer the correct answer based on her personality, and an incorrect answer may result in a bad ending such as death, taking the player back to the beginning of the stage.[6][7]

The final boss level (featuring the demon Judgement, the High Prosecutor) includes phased bullet hell-like mechanics with chains across the screen.[2]

Development[edit]

Łukasz Piskorz, known on Twitter as 'vanripper', developed the entirety of the game by himself over an estimated one-year period and was the game's artistic director.[8] According to Piskorz, Helltaker is somewhat reminiscent of the Leisure Suit Larry video game series, as the main characters of both games have characteristics reminiscent of each other.[9]

The game can be played for free,[10] and an art book and the recipe for the pancakes that appear in the game are sold separately.[11]

Although the video game is only officially available in English, Piskorz has supported the translations made by the community, explaining how to make them and making one in Polish himself.[8]Command 2.0 dx update cd download windows 10.
