About Slain: Back from Hell

About this game

You control the fate of Bathoryn, a doomed hero in a Gothic world, who seeks to liberate six cursed realms from six deadly overlords. He must battle his way through this blighted land, packed with gruesome pixel art foes before ascending (or sometimes descending) into a stronghold, all the while defeating fiendish traps and vile monsters alike.

At the heart of every domain Bathoryn will confront a mighty foe - defeat it and his quest continues to its ultimate destiny. Fail, and you’ll die gruesomely – mauled by werewolves, disintegrated by floating monstrosities, squashed by great weights or torn apart by hidden blades. And you will fail…

There are 3 key areas to be mastered in order to vanquish Slain: Back from Hell.

- Learn to wield 3 deadly elemental weapons, each one exploiting weaknesses in different enemy types. Each has a different combo, timing and use. Mastering quick switching between weapons is the path to victory!

- Glean the placement and timings of enemies and booby traps.

- Generate, conserve and unleash your Mana wisely.

Accompanied by the heavy metal visuals is an even heavier metal soundtrack recorded by Curt Victor Bryant (formally of Celtic Frost).

YOUR OFFICIAL SLAIN: BACK FROM HELL STEAM KEY GIVES YOU:

  • Challenging ‘elemental’- based melee and magical combat
  • 6 hours of bone-crushing, metal-fueled mayhem & gore
  • 3 unique weapons to choose from in your fight against the demon hordes.
  • Fully recorded soundtrack by Curt Victor Bryant formally of Celtic Frost. \m/
  • Cunningly concealed secrets (shhh).
  • Boss fights, mini-boss fights, sub-mini- boss fights & macro-sub- mini-boss fights.
  • No laborious levelling, no tedious grinding, no wimpy crafting!

Got this as a bonus gift with another game I purchased and ended up playing this almost as much as the game I bought. Fun little game that was challenging at times, which I could play casually on occasion.

It was okay. I wouldn't rate it 3 stars because I know some people enjoy this type of game more then other people. I thought this game was pretty good until about halfway through and then the quality dropped off a little. One thing i really liked about it though was the art style and for people that like this type of game will probably enjoy it much more then me.

Decent for a the couple of hours it takes to finish, but nothing to write home about

+ decent although too simple boss fights + difficult, but not overly so (except for one level I had an issue with at the end) +/- short and doesn't get too repetitive +/- simple mechanics - parries on some enemies are too hard and defeating them without it is a slog * tagged as metroidvania and souls-like - it's neither. You go in a linear way point A to point B (mostly left to right) with no upgrades of any kind, just skill and three weapons to switch between.

Style over substance

Good artstyle, boring to frustrating gameplay in general - a lot of instant deaths which are not something i enjoy when it is done in the way this game does, fun bossfights though.

Hard as hell with a great artstyle and soundtrack, for fans of retro hack and slash games a must pla

Sadistic in difficulty old school hack and slash. A game which made my rage in frustration often. But with perseverance everything is possible, add to that a heavy metal art style and soundtrack and you got a metalheads dream.
