Who are the two new free games worth?

Horror Month is here and the Epic Games Store is already providing free games to get you in the Halloween spirit. It’s not horror games though, it’s more the setting that matters Vacation fits.

The most important core data for the games can be found here:

  • Emerging Hell: In the vertical platformer you are taken to the depths of hell from which you must escape. When you die, you lose almost all progress. So Rising Hell is a roguelite.
  • Killed: Back from Hell: Here too you find yourself in hell again – but this time without roguelite, but with puzzle elements. But especially demons are still beaten up, while groovy music underlines your bloody deeds.

As always, the offer is valid for exactly seven days and ends on October 13 at 5 p.m.. If you want to grab the games directly, the following link will take you to the promotion. If you want to know more about the titles, please read on.

To the action

That’s what you can expect from Rising Hell

Let’s take a short quiz: I will describe a game to you and you can guess the title. The wanted game is a roguelite from the past two years where you try to escape from hell. You make your way through all kinds of demons. When you die, you have to work your way back up – but hell is generated procedurally and changes with every run.

The solution is, drum roll please: Rising Hell! Okay, probably not a big surprise – but it might as well have been celebrated Hades. On paper it looks very similar, even if the style of the games is clearly different.

Another similarity is also: the feedback from the fans: Rising Hell is doing very well on Steam with 91 percent positive reviews. Admittedly, Hades is slightly more popular at an incredible 98 percent and has nearly a thousand times as many ratings. We were also more than impressed in our Hades test:

In Rising Hell you don’t play the son of Hades, but many different characters that you can unlock. They differ not only in appearance, but also in gameplay. Of course boss fights against demons like Belzebub and Co. also not missing.

Who might be interested in Rising Hell?

Above all, of course, you should be able to make friends with platformers that come along in pixel style. If you like rock and metal, that would be a big plus too. The music accompanies you during the game. Last but not least, a pinch of frustration resistance is an advantage – after all, thanks to the roguelite mechanics, you start almost from scratch every time you die.

That’s in Slain: Back From Hell

If your metal heart hasn’t been pumping to the beat of the drums often enough lately, then you should definitely listen to Slain: Back From Hell. The soundtrack of the Castlevania-esque game has one heavy metal track after another.

Even the style of the game is brimming with tributes to artwork from classic metal albums. Otherwise, you’ll blast yourself into skeletons, monsters, and other blood-stained opponents in the usual arcade fashion.

Metal: Hellsinger, another video game devoted entirely to metal culture, was recently released. In the shooter you have to shoot in time. You can see what that might look like in the following gameplay trailer:
