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.
... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (6 Hours ago)
@rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (6 Hours ago)
If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (6 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (9 Hours ago)
And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (9 Hours ago)
I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (9 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (9 Hours ago)
