Super Spiel!
Hammerwatch bietet mit hilfe der 2D Ansicht ein altes Flair welches man bei vielen Spielen vermisst. Zudem kommen "moderne" Spieleelemente hinzu wie z.B. die Skill Shops oder die verschiedenen Klassen. Durch den Steam Workshop hat man die zusätzliche Möglichkeit sich Levels o.ä. runterzuladen. Alles in allem ein Super Spiel und nur zu empfehlen!

Das Spiel macht richtig Laune!
Habe gemeinsam mit einem Freund für beide Kampagnen ungefähr 10 Stunden gebraucht, für den Preis echt in Ordnung!
Die erste Kampagne haben wir nicht 100%ig abgeschlossen, weil wir nicht alle Secrets entdeckt haben...
Durch die Secrets bekommt Hammerwatch auch einen Wiederspielwert.

Sehr Geiles Indie Game. Bockenschwer aber macht echt viel spaß. In meiner Spielzeit hab ich nur ein Bug gefunden, aber dieser ist nie weider aufgetreten. Der Art Style ist auch sehr ansprechend und sieht für den Retro Look sehr gut aus. Also im gesamt Paket ein rund um gelungenes Spiel

Hammerwatch ist ein super RPG spiel, das mit seiner Pixel Grafik einfach vollkommen ist, es ist genug Action geboten und auch im Mehrspieler mit Freunden, ist dieses Spiel einfach genial auch die Level sind gut designte, der Schwierigkeitsgrade ist anspruchsvoll und fördernd somit langweilt dieses spiel auch nach stunden noch nicht.

Ich kann dieses Spiel wahrlich jedem empfehlen, da dieses Spiel sehr viel Spaß macht und auch die eine oder andere stunde rauben kann, in meinen Augen ist dieses Spiel sein Geld vollkommen wert.

Hammerwatch-Ein echt nettes Indie Spiel, aber ih empfehle echt den Multiplayer! Allein wird das Spiel schnell zum Frusthappen! Doch mit bis zu 3 Freunden gemeinsam Dungeons zu clearen oder Rätsel zu lösen macht hammer viel Spaß (Hammerwatch...Hahhahahhahah xD). Der pixelige Grafikstill gibt dem Spiel etwas Retrohaftes. Also wenn ihr Spaß daran habt zusammen zu arbeiten um etwas zu erreichen oder lustiges zu erleben dann ist es die Investition wert! Viel Spaß damit!

Auch hierzu haben wir ein kleines Let's Play hochgeladen:

Tolles Spiel, knackiger aber fairer Schwierigkeitsgrad, toller Soundtrack (Pens and Swords <3)

Im Coop sehr spassig, allerdings sind die Klassen etwas unausgewogen.

Gameplay mag repetitiv sein, allerdings gibts mit dem Map Editor schönen Workshop-Nachschub.

Mit Gamepad besser, Tastatur aber auch gut.

Tipp fürs Onlinespielen: Geladene Coop-Savegames kann man erst nachträglich in der Konsole auf "privat" stellen.

I picked up a four pack the other day and tossed the extra copies to my friends. At one point about two hours in we found ourselves in a situation where we had to deal with one of those lurkers that shoot spikes from the ground. To give our ranger the space to kill the lurker we needed to clear away all of the giant worms that were guarding it. Our thief ran in, threw his knives to get the worms' attention, then ran back around the corner where my paladin was waiting. As the worms circled around the corner to chase our thief they ran into my sword, and while a couple managed to poison me, our priest standing behind me had his healing beam running to keep me topped off. We killed off the horde and the ranger gave us the all-clear that the lurker was dead and the rest of us joined him in the lurker's lair to clear out to the booty.

It was at this moment I said over voice chat to my friends, "This game is awesome. Do you want to know what dungeon-crawler I believe Hammerwatch is ten times better than?"

My friends responded "Diablo 3?"

"Yeah, Diablo 3."

Much like NES Gauntlet, Hammerwatch has you playing the role of a select number of heroes set to traverse through 12 floors on a quest.There are six character classes ;Paladin ,Wizard ,Ranger ,Thief ,Priest, & Warlock. Each sporting their own normal & special attacks.Upgrading abilities & obtaining new ones come from vendors. Wiith no armor upgrades the gold & silver you find is spend only on ability & skill upgrades. Not the usual but it works with hammerwatches pacing.

Each act comes with a host of traps,secrets, enemies,mini bosses and bosses alike.The music changes as well match the floors theme.There is a toggable overlay minimap, save points can be found throughout each floor & the game autosaves between floors.Up to 4 people can play via online or local with hosted servers easy to find via a lobby.Direct ip hosting is available with a host of difficulty tweaks the hoster can choose or not. No native voice chat, but ingame text exists via hitting enter button.

The game comes with controller support,mod support,mod tools, & steam workshop making getting mods simple. Graphics are well done,ost is good, A.I. is challenging. For a fun game that you can enjoy with 4 people it's a must have for any co-oper.Best thing? No need to port forward for majority of people \o/. Get full price, or on sale, either way its a great fun game.

Hammerwatch is a game that feels like an old school (and intentionally looks like one) hack-and-slash game similar to Gauntlet. The story consists of one box of text at the beginning: "The small bridge broke behind you...there is probably no way out!" From there, your job is to kill and collect anything in your path and stay alive. When I was younger I used to play the hell out of the Nintendo 64 version of Gauntlet, it was fun when I took on the levels alone, but things really got going when a friend or three joined. Hammerwatch is similar. Due to the non-existent story, your motivation for moving forward is take your selected character from a choice of a Paladin, Warlock, Wizard and Ranger and take them to the end.

Playing alone, Hammerwatch is fun enough, fighting large groups of enemies as a lone Ranger, wiping out hundreds of bugs and creatures. The first act of the game is quite lengthy, where the constant killing and exploring for secrets slowly turns into looking for the way out. Fortunately there are save points around the world so when I began to burn out I could come back later refreshed and ready to go on. There are RPG elements in the game in the form of upgrading your attacks and adding in combos. At times I forgot that I could alter my skills, as it felt way too long between finding the vendors that I can purchase the skills from. Initially you have a basic attack and a special attack that feeds off of your magic meter. With combos added you gain bonuses such as health regeneration after killing 10 enemies in short time.

Going with old style pixel art, Hammerwatch pulls it off well and feels like a game you could have been playing in the 90's. The music works as well. For controls you can use the keyboard or controller. I recommend using a controller if you have one over using the keyboard. Not that the keyboard is a bad way to play, but I found dual sticks the way to go.

Playing co-op can be done by sharing the same screen or online. If you can, plug your computer/laptop up to a TV or have a big screen - sharing a screen can be good fun with a group of friends together. Online is great for if your friends aren't nearby or it's hard to get people together. The online experience isn't always smooth, there is stutter at times and a few graphical hiccups but neither really impact on the game and really I can't remember the last time I played an online game that ran super smooth so it's hard to knock Hammerwatch for the same.

If you feel that you are up to some level editing that is available too, you can tailor make levels that you and your friends will enjoy. If you just want to make the game harder or easier there are sliders to adjust.

There's not much to dislike about Hammerwatch unless you hate having fun, it's a fun Gauntlet style game; great fun with two to four people and fun enough playing it alone. Combined with some nice 'retro' visuals and good music to quest to, with the game editor you shouldn't run out of content anytime soon.

Highly Recommended

Hammerwatch came out just a few years ago via steam's greenlight and is extremely good. It offers you exactly what you would expect from hack and slash genre plus a few extra things. I am yet to find more enjoyable game where all you do is run around and kill stuff. The secret areas are a different thing though.

I believe this is my first game of its genre and I must say I enjoyed it a lot. There are 6 classes to choose from. All give you different abilities and game strategies. There are no skill trees, instead you can purchase your skills and stats from the shopkeepers during the game. There are different possible combos for every class. You will have to look for hidden doors, which is not always easy. Sometimes you have to go around 1 level a few times to actually see everything and find out if something moved due to your actions. Game keeps you in pace. Closer to the end the pace of killing enemies and you dying becomes a bit faster. I must say that the game is actually not frustrating at all. You enjoy every gold coin you find to spend on yourself.

The sound is very not friendly to new users. You have to install a program yourself, which is actually located in the files, but it does not tell you where and why. Without sound this game would actually suck. But, once you get it going it's just amazing. It makes the gameplay so much better and gives you a feel of really old game. I found a bug, when you get to special are the sound from previous area plays together with the new area's sound. Otherwise, the music is very pleasant and I have not grown tired of it at all.

Graphically the game looks like it was made for SEGA during 90's, but it's still a modern game. You can actually adjust the post effects so that you game looks not even 90's but 80's. You can get a rounded yellowish screen, how about that for a change on your nice flat screen huh? Everything you see is perfectly understandable and there are no visuals artifacts because the graphics are so simple. In all, graphical solution adds up to the feel you get while playing Hammerwatch.

Controlls in general are a fine, but can be a bit wonky for some classes like range for example. Shooting and walking can be a bit of nuisance sometimes. There's only like 8 buttons to push, so you should be fine with any character to be honest.

Replayabilty is under question. I guess once you finish the game with every class there's not much to do unless you gather friends to play online.

In the end the game is so good for the offered price. I would even say that buying the game at a full price is not going to disappoint you.

Very fun game, even more fun when you play with other players who are in the same chat as you such as skype, teamspeak, ect. It takes both solo skills and team skills to win in this game. So do not be disapointed if you are vanquished on the first boss. It takes times to know everything in it

8/10

I just beat this game after 27 hours, and I haven't felt that relieved to best a game in ages. Hammerwatch has all the best bits of the old 2D age of dungeon crawling, with scant few of what was terribly bad. The game will leave you to eat through droves and droves of enemies that could easily kill you in but a second if they get closer, if you're not careful the game will beat you down with it's cruel and unforgiving policy on health recovery. If you're wise and cautious, you'll be rewarded with large swathes of treasure and the satisfying feeling you get when the enemies finally crumble before your ire.

I'd highly recommend this to any person enthusiastic about the "golden ages" of dungeon crawlers. The main campain will take at least 20 hours to clear if you search far and wide for all the secrets; and there is even an expansion offering an entire additional dungeon. The game may only sport 8 stages, but they will take more than a bit of effort to clear.

Hammerwatch is a very addictive hack and slash, multiplayer dungeon crawler. Fun singleplayer, Amazing with friends! The game provides 6 classes, Paladin, Wizard, Ranger, Warlock, Thief, and Priest. Once you have you and your friend(s) playing the game, each and every one of you can pick one or the same class and just talking and killing monsters with skype is just a hilarious time. Overall it's a very unique and amazing game. Would spend another 15+ hours on this easily.
