About This Game

Hell Yeah! is a crazy action-adventure platformer... In Hell.

You are Ash, a devil rabbit and the prince of Hell. When some jerk finds it funny to post your secret intimate photos all over the Hell-ternet, you get VERY angry.

Time to seek out the bastard and destroy him once and for all. While you’re at it, why not use this incredible journey to kill everybody else?

It’s you against all Hell. It’s Hell Yeah!

Key Features:

  • Tension-relieving faux-gore action Hell Yeah! helps you clear your mind after a bad/frustrating/boring day at work. Achieve this by exploring the four corners of Hell and exterminating monsters in a cheerful yet challenging atmosphere.
  • Drill to kill shooting is fun but shooting from a super sawing jetpack that can drill through walls and squash monsters into chunks is better. Hell Yeah! gives you full frontal violence in your face.
  • This game is too BIG for you 10 huge game worlds with secret areas and side quests, hundreds of objects, weapons and monsters to collect. If you’re a completionist, you’re screwed man.
  • Help us make Hell a cleaner place there are 100 unique monsters to exterminate in Hell Yeah! Some are rude, others are really ugly but they all equally deserve to DIE!
  • 'Finish him' moves that will make your mama cry inflict ultimate humiliation on the monsters of Hell using over 30 deadly “Finish him!” mini-games.
  • Pimp my drill collect loot and spend your cash in big shops where you can buy bigger guns and awesome upgrades for your ride. The donut driller skin and the ‘Sploding Carrot missile launcher make a lovely combo.

Remember when platformers weren't all trying to be arty metaphors for life, loss and all that other fancy crap? If you find a metaphor in Hell Yeah's relentless assault on your eyes and sanity, it's only because it's about to get dropkicked by an angry demon rabbit riding a giant spinning death blade with a jetpack on the back.

This is one of those games where the design process didn't involve whiteboards and long discussions, but some chemist's secret stash being ground up and dripped into the artists' eyeballs. You're Ash, disgraced rabbit prince of Hell, on a quest to kill 100 wacky monsters who saw paparazzi photos of you playing with a rubber duckie in the bath. That's as sane as Hell Yeah! ever gets. It's a game where firing shark missiles is all in a day's work.

Hell Yeah review Hell Yeah's drillable rocks look delicious. You'd eat that at the funfair.
Getting to your enemies is relatively standard platform fare, with the twist that you can often drill through obstacles, boost jump around the place, and acquire different weapons. Actually killing your foes, however, involves playing Warioware-style microgames such as stealing honey from a suspicious bee to unleash an appropriate fatality move, which might be having a dinosaur bite their head off for you.

It's the chaos of Earthworm Jim in the levels of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, with a little Ren and Stimpy/Invader Zim (delete according to age) thrown in for good measure. Gags and minigames repeat more than they should, but still survive the repetition of gags and minigames repeating more than they should, which both gags and minigames do.

The action itself, while enjoyable, soon lets things down. While Hell Yeah! is a fantastic looking game, it's one that paid more attention to looking good than playing great. There's so much going on most of the time that it's often hard to take in and get a proper read on the levels and what's going to hurt if you run straight into it.

More routinely irritating are the controls, where double-jumps, skids and simply being knocked back by enemies will often frustrate you. You want an Xbox 360 controller for this one. You could play it with a keyboard, but only in the same sense that technically you could fly if you flapped your arms hard enough. Either way, prepare for unhelpful checkpoints, and the irritations of repeated cutscenes and similar hold-ups soon being promoted to fully-fledged annoyances. They take the shine off the chaos rather than the fun out of it, however, and you soon return to the forward momentum Hell Yeah! needs.

The game's obvious enthusiasm carries it over these bumps in the road, and if you can forgive, you can easily forget in the race for the next bit of insanity. Hell Yeah! is no platforming classic, but it's cheap enough to be worth a punt if you like the idea of its craziness, and crazy enough to get your money's worth long before the end.

THE VERDICT
72/100

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit
Gory, beautiful chaos, if a little frustratingly rough behind the scenes. A good afternoon’s chaos, and that’s what matters.

Ha ha, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is a zany comedy action-platformer where you go on a bloody rampage as a skeleton bunny, fighting to regain your throne as prince of Hell while armed with drill (more like a ring blade) and a huge variety of improbably heavy weapons. I won't go into details because humour constitutes the game's greatest value but Hell Yeah! will keep you amused for a couple of hours, or for about 25 to 30% of its overall content. It's just the sort of product that makes me apprehensive of "comedy" games; past the initial chuckle you'll find that there's very little in the way of content.

Still, I'm giving Hell Yeah! a Thumbs Up because although I was apprehensive of its many questionable design decisions, I've found nothing too offensive during play and the shock humour DID succeed in making me laugh. Design decisions such as mapping jump to a face button, aiming to the right stick and firing the right trigger; it seems cumbersome to do everything at once but there is enough leeway preventing you from getting frustrated. Or like holding jump for a floaty "jetpack"-like super jump. You dread the moment where you'll have to "float" just underneath a set of ceiling spikes but such a situation never occurs.

There's A LOT of material to go through so you're certain to get your money's worth, except that it does get repetitive after a while. Hell Yeah! makes an earnest attempt at providing as much monster variety as possible but inevitably, monster patterns and executions loop around and the game turns into a slog. You gain about a dozen different weapons but little to no difference in strategy. There's even extra value in the form of post-story extra missions; but they usually involve platformer racing or killing a certain amount of enemies within a time limit. The most pedestrian of added content.

If you've already obtained this game during the Sega giveaway and haven't played it yet, then save it for a rainy afternoon or during a period when you're particularly down in the dumps. Avoid reading about it as much as possible and simply allow the story to surprise you for as long as it can. If you do not already have this game in your library and are currently staring down its 16,99$ price tag, then no, I most certainly do not recommend the purchase. Steam sale only, with the understanding that you're playing this game strictly for laughs.

Its a simple, beautiful and colorful 2D action platformer. There is tons of different minigames after you kill a boss. Very enjoyable. And not to mention the hilarious dialogue and boss fatality. Another great game from Sega that deserve a sequel.

A decent game but not worth $15. If your bored and have money to spend then go for it but wait for the discount.
