Hell Hunt by T19gsHell Hunt is a “new retro” FPS inspired by the iconic 90s shooters like Quake and Blood. It tells the story of a Demon Hunter entering hell for revenge. Packed with classic elements such as key cards with secret areas, no health regeneration, and a large arsenal of demon destroying weapons. At the same time, Hell Hunt also has modern skill-based FPS mechanics, such as powerful attack abilities, special movement abilities, and upgradeable weapon systems. Features:
- Bullet time: A short bullet time will be triggered when you kill a demon during a fight, everything will slow down but you’ll move normally.
- Abilities: You can use some special abilities such as throwing katanas, dash, etc.
- Weapon: More than 10 weapons in-game (Only 5 can be used in the demo).
The demo is available for download from itch.io Playing and talking about this game it’s hard not to talk about its inspirations. In turn, it’s also hard not to talk about the other games in the “new retro” genre. Over the last few years, there has been a rise in the “new retro” shooters game. From Ion Fury the first new game to be built on the Build engine in 20 years to the plethora of indie games. Dusk, Amid Evil, Headon, Project Warlock, and Nightmare Reaper just to name some of the most popular in the genre. These types of retro shooters are a dime a dozen but once in a while, one springs up with unique concepts and execution. Hell Hunt by T19gs is just that game that has enough to stand out but if you are a lover of the classics it’s similar enough to not be alienating. With all the staples of the genre but a few twists that make it a must-play at least in this humble reviewers opinion. New fans of boomer shooters or old heads will find something to love about Hell Hunt.
