Usually dying in a video game isn’t the best outcome, but in Hellevator death is inevitable – and you’ll need to die a lot to beat this Steam freebie!
Developed and published by Quasar Games, Hellevator is a new 2D platformer which will put your puzzle skills to the test as you try to figure out how death can help you escape. Dying is your only option as you use strategy to figure out how and where to die so you can reach the next platform to escape.
“Unlike other 2D platformers based on puzzles, Hellevator’s main mechanic is based upon death and possession,” explains the game’s Steam page.
“Cannot cross a floor full of spikes? Just sacrifice yourself and possess the closest body nearby! You will have at your disposal a lot of characters with different on-death abilities for you to solve each puzzle.”
Hellevator’s stellar gameplay is matched only by its gorgeous design, which uses bright pops of colour against its sinister shadows for a really beautiful gameplay experience.
If you’re not already sold on Hellevator, maybe its price tag will sway you. Downloading Hellevator to your Steam library will cost you absolutely nothing, and the game even has user reviews of “Very Positive.”
While Hellevator isn’t quite as challenging as other 2D platformers like Celeste, it’s sure to get you scratching your head more than once. If you’re a PC gamer, you’ll regret not giving this adventure a whirl.
If you want to figure out what Hellevator has to offer, download it on Steam for free today!
