The bad news is…Yours Truly managed to 100% the twenty-six Achievements in this game in under ten minutes. The even WORSE news is that this is a high-speed run-and-gun wave shooter with only one weapon and insta-kill death the second you get so much as TOUCHED by a skeleton, and even I – someone who is completely "unco" and almost legendarily bad at such high-intensity games – 100%-ed it in under ten minutes.
Oh…but I guess that might be the GOOD news for some of you, too? That YOU CAN 100% THE ACHIEVEMENTS IN UNDER TEN MINUTES, EVEN IF YOU’RE TOTALLY CRAP AT THIS KIND OF GAME?
Damn…did I just recommend this worthless piece of donkey-doo, purely by accident? Well, sh*t. Have to try harder next time, I guess.
Verdict: 4/10 (okay, so the graphics are alright, and the gun is kinda cool too, but that’s no excuse for a complete dearth of story and gameplay).

good old fasion retro style.
Gets boring quick
Is it worth it for 1 buck I would say yes but it does get boring after a few hours.
EDIT: The Dev has done some updates to the game. The map is now much bigger and has much more room to run around, which was one of my biggest complaints. They also added sounds to the skeletons such as spawning sounds and walking sounds. Everything else remains the same for me however.
Hell Shooter touts itself as an old school FPS game… and that’s pretty much all it really calls itself. There really isn’t much to explain here. Just a simple google search gives you… nothing! The game’s name is so generic that literally nothing comes up! There isn’t even a trailer (other than the video on the Steam page) that I was able to use, so I was forced to make a short video for this review.
Did you watch the video? Well in that whole 2 min, you saw the entire game! I wish I was joking when I said that! Hell Shooter sticks you in a small graveyard, armed with a demonic weapon. The weapon fires like a machine gun if you hold the shoot button, fires like a shotgun if you just click, and as a grenade launcher with the alt fire. Your goal is to collect as much souls as possible, to score as much points to get the highest position on the leaderboard. Sounds simple enough right? Well you don’t want the skeletons to touch you, as it’s a one hit kill.
The game plays in one map. A small graveyard. This is the biggest flaw of the game. The game wants to be an “arena shooter” which is far from what this game is. For starters, this map is too tiny and lacks any paths other than the loop around the church building, lacks any sort of platforms, and lacks any room to really run around without getting caught on something. The best game I can compare this to is Devil Daggers. Now that is a game that does an intense arena shooter well! The map in Devil Daggers is much more open, so it lets you move around to dodge enemies much better. Hell Shooter doesn’t provide that. The map is fairly crapped, and the monster spawns are all over the place. Combine that with the enemies giving no sounds (other than death screams) and you will have no idea if one is behind you or not.
This is where the final issue of the game comes up. There is only one type of enemy! Just a simple skeleton that spawns randomly around the map and runs towards you. They easily die from just one hit, but they will swarm you very fast if you aren’t paying attention. Combine that with them making no sounds at all tends to lead to some cheap deaths.
There are some positives. I will say the game does look amazing and runs super smooth! Graphically everything looks well done and everything has the appearance that it fits in the world well, though the wasteland beyond the fence really doesn’t offer much for scenery. I didn’t experience any major performance issues for what little I played.
I would have given this game a much lower score, but as the game runs well, I can’t really be mad at it. The only real issue going against it is the real lack of content. Yes, it is $1, but since you see everything in less than 2 min it is a real shame. The other reason I didn’t lower the score is the Dev is still working on this and updating it, so who knows what else he does with this project! Hey, at least it isn’t a complete achievement spam game!
Helps fill my Devil Daggers void.
Glad to see the updates. Good stuff.
If you enjoy Devil Daggers, youll probably kill some time with this. Just dont expect anything deeper than what you see.
Hopefully it could develop into a fun time waster.
Fun if you don’t have much time and just want to shoot stuff.
It’s not about getting kills, you need the souls that drop and that makes it more challenging.
Would be nice if there was a soul indicator on the screen but besides that I can’t say anything bad about the game. You buy the game for what it is, an endless FPS shooter.
they have feet and when you move with feet there is noise.
as somebody who uses his ears to know where things are, it’s frustrating.
and the minigun’s firing sound is pretty grating when it’s this high pitched.
i would recommend just using an entirely different sound for it with some more oomph behind so it feels less like a scream cannon.
