Oh Hell, no
I maintain that isometric, top-shooters are a genre that’s sorely underutilized. Thankfully, the zany Tom vs. The Armies Of Hell is here to appease fans.
The game has remained an Early Access title since February of 2015, but will finally see its completed form on the 27th of July.
In it, players take control of Tom, a hapless office worker who is bored and frustrated with the banality and soullessness of his corporate, software engineering job. This all take a dramatic turn for the worst when his company opens up a portal to Hell (clearly they never played Doom and understood how likely it is that opened portals will always lead to Hell). Tom gets attacked while running away to the bathroom, only to find himself saved and mysteriously augmented with a demonic arm. Now, he’s out to slaughter hellspawn and provide souls for his infernal appendage in order to escape premature damnation.
The game prides itself on its completely off-the-wall plot and relishes in advancing it as the game plays out. It remains a story-driven single-player experience throughout its six levels.
It also aims to be a difficult undertaking, challenging players already familiar with the genre. This, coupled with the fact that enemy placement is procedurally-generated, means that players will always be challenged as they can never know what to expect next.
You may obtain this demon-busting incursion by visiting its Steam page and parting with $12.99 of your cash. Take a gander at the story trailer below:
