(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really full-fledged game reviews as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know if it’s worth your time or money.)
This is Hell is a pixel art side scroller that released on the App Store back in November by Kilowatt Games. I guess you could call this game a platformer or sorts.Either way you look at it, the game is tough and it doesn’t try to hide it. Your job is to crawl your way out of Hell by any means necessary to try and make it to Heaven. What makes the game unique and challenging at the same time are it’s mechanics. You control the left and right arms via 2 joysticks. It sounds simple enough, but trying to climb the rough and jagged terrain of Hell can be enough to drive you crazy. Similar to games like Get Over It and Jump King, you can lose a lot of your progress with one little mistake. I’ve sunk in around 4 hours so far and have made very little progress. It’s one of those games where I just play it until I want to throw my phone across the room, then I’ll set it down until the next time I want my day ruined. I will say that as much as the game pisses me off, I keep going back to it time and time again. I love the theme and there’s always a surprise waiting around the corner. Not to mention, the radio station is absolutely hilarious. So, if you’re a fan of overly difficult rage-quit games, This is Hell is definitely worth picking up. Join my mission in trying to make it to Heaven.
