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.
But there's just no explanation for: "At some point soon, we better get busy making babies." This is simply just really terrible writing. (3 Hours ago)

@Sdarts: I know, it's too much. I think I'm starting to understand why some of key people at Bioware left. They saw a shitstorm comin and they jumped ship. (4 Hours ago)
ME:A is a disgrace and disrespect to the ME franchise and everyone that worked on the first 3 games, and everyone that was/is a ME fan. (4 Hours ago)
But the really, truly worst part is the writing and dialogue. I'm no writer, not even an aspiring to be one, and I'm very confident I wouldn't write this badly. (4 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: I watched it a 2nd time, Jesus Fuck! What happened to BioWare? And most important, what the fuck happened with QA in gaming? I swear QA is the least desirable job in the gaming industry (4 Hours ago)
