Our friend Salocin is back to share with you some videos and his opinion on 99 Levels To Hell, a platform-shooter where you have only one life to complete 99 levels.
99 Levels To Hell is a game that offers similar gameplay to Abuse, with some roguelike elements, on ninety-nine levels full of blood, fireballs and shotgun shots.
From Abuse, 99 Levels To Hell takes its simple control scheme: the keyboard moves the character, the mouse is used to aim at enemies coming from everywhere on the screen. As in every good roguelike, levels are randomly generated as well as the location of the various power-ups. There is however a defined rule: you have to beat a boss at the end of each batch of ten levels. These fights get more and more challenging as time goes and they are a welcome transition between two series of 10 levels. The game is highly replayable, with permadeath forcing you to start over your progression again and again.
99 Levels To Hell's soundtrack is pretty good and offers some old-school sound effects that suits the game well. The game also has a simple graphic identity and it also offers much variety in terms bestiary of enemies. Graphics-wise, we must underline the nice use of light and shadows, which work well throughout the levels. To finish, let us remind you that 99 Levels To Hell is available on PC and MAC for only $4.99.

@Tiz: Most big games were larger than what a standard CD-ROM disc could store, so it wasn't unusual that pirated games were lacking audio tracks or movies. (3 Hours ago)
@Tiz: Sega used a proprietary GD-ROM format (about 1GB discs) for storage. It did not stop piracy though as you with a bootdisc could start cd-r copies without the need to hard mod the console. (3 Hours ago)
I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (6 Hours ago)
