Larva Mortus is a top-down shooter. You go from room to room killing everything with up to eight different weapons. You can level up your stats, play through tons of levels, or you could just play something else.

The biggest problem with LM is that the difficulty is unbalanced. When you select your difficult setting, you're actually deciding on how much you want to be annoyed. This game features a lot of small enemies, some that leave trails of fire everywhere, spit multiple projectiles, and even randomly become invincible. The harder difficulties mean you have to put up with more of their crap, blow through all of your ammo, and possibly get killed in the process. The easiest setting seems like the best choice, since all difficulty really affects is how much the player does and takes damage. However, this setting also makes the game too easy...which I guess is to be expected...hm. Regardless, the alternative is pointless frustration.

Insta-death also starts to become a common theme later in the game. Devils and Champion Knights have attacks that'll kill you regardless of health or difficulty. Circle-strafing is a good method of avoiding this deadly attack, but these jerks tend to attack in groups, and other enemies lending a hand. Still, death really isn't very punishing, unless of course you managed to collect a rare item. There are a number of unique treasures that strengthen the player or offer a big XP bonus. These are lost if you die before completing the stage. Strangely, all of the achievements are tied to these rarities, you don't even get a cheevo for beating the game.

Larva Mortus is just a very dull game. Within 15 minutes you've seen most everything the game has to offer, and yet it just keeps going for hours, without purpose or entertainment value. There are a few moments of satisfaction, like blowing up a half-dozen monsters with a cannon, or shooting a werewolf in the face with a shotgun, but you can get more entertainment from playing a classic FPS like Doom. This game consists of running through rooms, occasionally finding something interesting, sometimes dying, and just never really caring. Your free-time is more valuable than that.

Overall, I enjoyed Larva Mortus. I got the game very cheaply using a 90% off coupon and had low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised! It is a solid top down shooter game. The graphics are decent and it is the kind of game you can just play 10 or 20 minutes before bed to relax. The music is solid for the setting. It's easy to learn and get into. There's 9 different weapons, 6 stats you can raise, and the plot isn't bad. Without grinding, you could probably beat the game in a few hours. I leveled up more than necessary to get more of the achievements, ended up beating the game at level 26 but you can beat it much earlier than that. There's 24 achievements that are pretty easy to get and random drops. I was able to 100% the game in 10.5 hours. The last few drops can be tedious but otherwise it's pretty fun overall. Grab this game on sale if you enjoy top down shooters!

To tell the truth, I was surprised by this game.

It doesn't look like much as a top down horror hack'n'slay, but exactly this spartan design is what is captivating about this, kill hordes of monsters with whatever weapon you got. Later in the game you will get better and more powerful weapons. You have to destroy monsters, hordes of them, zombies, animated skeletons, bats, spiders ... demons.

I bought it as it was very cheap during last years winter holiday sales - and it lay in the backlist of my library, just recently I started to play it.

Given, it isn't the best game around, but this type of game never gets old, or can bother you to be a bore. The gameplay is similiar to Binding of Issac and Our Darker Purpose. Some goals are hard to reach, but if you try to prepare you'll get more and more items that help to end your mission.

For the price I bought it the game is a gem, even at the original price of 4,99 it is worth your time. The game is no hype, but it is rock solid.

This game would be a great hit in the 90s. To be honest, the music is OK, just as the sounds. And that's pretty it.

First thing first.

Larva Mortus isn't a high quality game, it does not even try to be one. Larva Mortus is a top down shooter with flaws which offers you couple hours of entertainmentish.

You play as a monster hunter doing various monster hunting tasks. Across your journeys through abandoned warehouses to cemeteries you deal with undead monstrosities, werewolves and such. All are classic horror monsters, even main character is very classical monster hunter manly man. Weapons of slay include revolvers, two handed sword, machine gun etc. etc. Nothing new, you've seen 'em and know em. Oh, you'll gain levels too.

Controls work the way they should, you'll run around using wasd and with the power of mouse you'll aim and deal lead to monstrosities.

First hour of this game is pretty much fun. Also first hour of this game is pretty much all this game has to offer. You run around rooms, killing monsters with guns. Then you run around killing some more. It's really repetitive, but sometimes that is just what we need.

Larva Mortus has serious balancing issues. Instant death dealing monsters, unbalanced weaponry, easily predicted enemies. Difficulty level is a rollercoaster ride in this game. Too easy from pain in the behind hard, no gradual progress in there. Character development is simple as it should be. Problematically you can level up your character to be almost useless. (Free tip, first 5 points goes to walking speed) Still the game has few good horrorish moments and pretty good ambience. Music is nice for the first hour and then it you'll start wishing this game had few more songs. I had no techical issues with game and it ran smoothly.

Main campaing is playable only by leveling up via random quests. These put you around the globe for uh, monster killing, saving people or, you know, killing monsters. Also you can get quest for eradicating monster sings, which is basically the same thing as monster killing.

I recommend this game for horror and top down shooter fans who can deal with B-quality stuff.

Awesome top-down shooter. Good enemy variety and challenge, though I would have liked a few more types of traps to deal with. Some of the game is a bit tacky like when a random face appears or bats fly across the screen, but I think it adds to its charm.

Simple and fun. 6/10

Pros:
1. Simple and straightforward
2. Assortment of weapons
3. Challenging
4. I was having fun

Cons:
1. Not a lot of variation
2. Graphic design isn't very impressive
3. I could only play in small bursts and not for very long

Overall, it is fun but I don't want to spend a lot of time on this game. Not enough variation to keep me coming back. If you like top down shooters then you may enjoy this game.

Larva Mortus is your typical top down shooter that focuses on a horror theme of sorts, throwing at you every demonic creature in the book: zombies, skeletons, bats, spiders and even demons and vampires.

There isn't too much that makes this game stand out from other games like Alien Breed, but it's most certainly not a terrible game like RIP either.

Larva Mortus' story is decent. It's not terrific (and really not my cup of tea), but this indie game obviously shows it's trying to be something, which is almost enough for me to give it a gracious thumbs up.

If you're a die-hard top shooter fan, then this game may just be for you, and would recommend people this game for its variety of weapons to use in game.

At first glance, it's a boring room to room game that you moonwalk your way to another room. But as you play on and fight more challenging enemies, it will certainly be very addictive!

Well, it's a horror themed game - but the real horror lurks in its flaws:
enemies that spawn outside of the map never to be seen again - which is especially annoying if this happens in a story map.
It is quite unbalanced - turning it from easy to normal increases the probabillity to die from zero to somewhat 90% - you better have invested yours skills in meele 'cause your running out of ammo quite fast (above easy).

But the feeling of the game is nice - it's something between the excorcist and duke nukem :)
The price is also OK - so if you're into this kind of game -> grind for fun (i like the trophies)

This game gave me flashbacks to a Haunted House I visited once as a child.

There were no witnesses, so keep this between us, Steam. Don't snitch on me. I'll make you pay for it.

As far as top down shooter goes, this game does what it needs to do. It's not a masterpiece, nor does it try to be. Just have fun with it. Shoot some zombies. Shoot down some floating, screaming ghosts. I didn't know it was a lady in a costume on ropes, okay? I didn't know.

Just...

It was an accident.

Cheap? Yes. Bad gameplay? No. Larva Mortus I bought in an Indie Pack that constantly goes on sale. I didn't expect this game to be so much good and be under 2 quarters (When on sale) So next time it goes on sale, grab it for the cheap price and have fun in this arcade game.
