Battle your enemies through a story-based campaign across multiple difficulty levels, including brutal Nightmare mode!

Will you roast orcs in pits of lava, pound them flat with a ceiling trap, or freeze and shatter them with a slash? No matter the weapons and traps you choose, you’re sure to have an orc-killing blast!

Not Recommended

Phantom
It really pains me to say this but I can't recommend the game. The first few levels are fun but they are also ridiculously easy and you can't really get a sense of accomplishment. A few levels are challenging and a few are so increadlibly hard that they are no fun, especially when you want to get 5 skulls (no deaths, no enemies got through, make it in time). I can't get 5 skulls in the final level no matter how many times I try/ different strategies, etc, nothing will work. Most levels are doable with the right strategy but not the last one. I could have looked past that but then the nightmare mode is even more frustrating. I am struggling even in the first act because not only are the enemies much harder to kill, I have less health and less money etc but I also have to fight the hardest enemies (armoured oger, 4 gnolls in one wave,...) you also have NO TIME to prepare for the enemies. 3 seconds is all you get and no breaks in between. The levels that were maybe challenging in normal are just not doable anymore. In general the game is much harder than the second one and not in a good way. It is also less fun to play alone and you feel overwhelmed quite a lot. If you like the look of the game, get the second one, it's balanced a lot better and way more fun to play.
