One of the best games I have ever encountered. It's so much fun and the feel of greatness when you have beaten a hard level is enormous. I've played and beat that game once when i was little. NOW IT"S TIME FOR ROUND 2

Good game, terrible port.

Pandemonium is one of most fun 2D platformers from PlayStation era. You follow sotry of Fargus and Nikki through amazingly colorful levels. Transformation system in this game allowed you to actually play more characters than those two.

But the port quality... is terrible. Low resolution, no save option added, weird problems with framerate. Honestly either play this on PSN/PS3 or get original game and play on emulator.

My review is likely going to be biased - I was too fond of this game fifteen years ago and really too glad to find it here.
That being said, it would still be a very positive review with quite a positive score even if I were stumbling on Pandemonium for the first time.
I'd like to add that I started playing after being scared by other very negative reviews and, as a consequence, I was positively delighted to discover them to be wrong on more than a few points.

Let's start with the PROs:
- The music. It was the original soundtrack - and you'd better believe I still was able to recognize and hum along more than a piece. I loved it the first time I heard it and I loved it now replaying it on my PC. I've had levels playing in the background just to listen to the track.
- The colours. Graphics were old and not at all updated - but colours and scenery in this game are to die for. I've loved especially the last set of levels, with their airy and bright feeling changing slowly into nightmarish, dark backgrounds.
- The credits level. No, really. It was almost worth it just to play that level - it's SO SATISFYING.
- The degree of difficulty. Yes, it's a difficult game. Yes, you'll die a lot of times. So nice having to try hard and do your best.

The CONs:
- The low resolution. It's a 640x480 and it shows. On the bright side, your PC will be barely able to notice the work going on.
- The sound level. You've to exit the game and lower/raise the sound like this (or to use the ESC button, your choice). That's annoying - especially if you're playing in the middle of the night and you've forgotten to regulate the sound before going in Pandemonium mode.
- The clear laziness of the port - yeah, sorry. It was clearly simply exported from PS to PC without breaking a sweat.
- The degree of difficulty. Yes, it's a difficult game. You'll want to throw away your keyboard. Don't do it. Keyboards are pricey.

I was able to find 4 on 5 Hearts Container without any help - the fifth one, hidden in one of the first levels, I discovered by searching online, I'll admit. All of my blessing to the players whom were able to find it by their own strenght: you're gods and I'll worship you.
Going back from time to time to recharge your lives by playing the first levels will help with the hardest steps. To pause - that was one of my fears born by reading other reviews - you just have to press ESC. The same goes for changing controls on your keyboard; you can literally personalize everything.

7.5/10
Suggested if you've time, patience and flexibility and if you don't need perfect graphics to have fun.

i used to love this game back in my youth... but the thing/truth is this is just an emulated (and poorly) psx iso... not worth your money even for nostalgia's sake . better play is on an actual emulator or better yet on the original machine... totally not worth as a buy...

Yes, this was an awesome game back in the day, but this release is a joke.
- Only 640x480 resolution. Not even bad upscaling - nothing.
- Frequent issues with the game's speed and unrecognized button pushes.
- No button remapping whatsoever.
- No options or pause menu. ESC only switches to some kind of GUI in your native resolution.
And I only played for around two minutes. Maybe there's more to get annoyed by.

I really can't recommend to this one to anybody. From what I can tell, it's simply a bad port. The controls are the main difficulty here--executing a double jump is frustrating, as the controls seem sluggish/unresponsive, and yet simply walking forward seems overly sensitive and before you adjust to this issue you'll find yourself plummeting to your death a lot. The music is repetitive and the password only system is maddening.

There's a good game buried here. You can see it in some of the level designs. And sometimes it IS fun to play, but more often than not it's either frustrating or mediocre. I'm so close to the end that I'm going to finish it anyway, but it hasn't been a great journey.

If you want to give this game a whirl, maybe pick it up for psx instead. But this version stinks.

Another platforming gem from the PS1 era is Pandemonium! (1996 and brought to you by Crystal Dynamics)

We embark on an adventure caused by the mishaps of Fargus the Joker and Nikki, a young sorceress. She singlehandedly caused the destruction of their local town by casting a spell from a tome. They quest to reach something known as the Wishing Engine to restore the town to its previous condition.

We have ourselves a "not quite 3D" deal, here. The gameplay itself is 2D, but you can expect the "typical for its time" 3D rendering. There's a wide variety of stages to challenge, here. Fortresses, forests, deserts, mystical temples... (Even sawmills?!?!) and each house their own cast of troublesome foes, acrobatics and platforming scenarios. The music has a very unique fusion going on, as composed by Burke Trieschmann, instilling feelings of adventure and mysticism along the way. (Dungeon Tower... great example.). The controls are simple, but don't harbour forgiveness for you - precision is the name of the game. Fargus and Nikki each have their own special ability for you to use at your leisure throughout the adventure. Fargus provides an offensive spin, whilst Nikki has the perks of double jumping. You also have the joy of selecting whoever you wish for every level.

Overall? I'd recommend it. It's challenging, it's an adventure and offers players an acrobatic, fantasy fuelled twist on platforming with a superb soundtrack to accompany your escapades.

Quite hard to master but not unfair. It´s fun to play no matter how many times on dies.
The game might be old but the graphics are still very appealing.
I am amazed about how lively the expressions of the characters are during the cutscenes.

Che dire di Pandemonium , gioco bellissimo, graficamente molto ben fatto ai tempi, gameplay platform 2.5D funzionava bene. Ma c'è un piccolo particolare che "rovina" il gioco, la sua difficoltà troppo elevata! cazzo, è più difficile di "Dark soul"!
Il gioco era studiato per bambini, ma è molto difficile farlo, infatti io stesso , purtroppo, ho usato le password per avere tutti i livelli e tutti i cuori (visto che se non collezioni tante ma tante monete, ne rimani a 2, e fare gli ultimi livelli con 2 cuori o sei un Coreano o devi giocare lo stesso livello 100 volte.)
Non è un grosso difetto la difficoltà (con le password che hai puoi risolverla), però diciamolo un pò più facile potevano farlo.
Il gameplay come ho spiegato sopra non è male, platform 2.5D , a ogni livello puoi scegliere 2 personaggi che diciamolo... Fargus è abbastanza inutile.
Non completamente, perchè alla fine può attaccare in laterale a differenza di Nikki, però visto che ci sono molti nemici che li puoi sconfiggere saltandoci sopra, e abbastanza inutile.
Nikki, invece, ha un pregio che è anche un gran difetto, qual'è? ovviamente il doppio salto!
Il doppio salto non funziona sempre, già i comandi sono abbastanza rigidi (giustificato, essendo della ps1), ma il doppio salto và a ♥♥♥♥.
Quindi molte volte che cerchi di raggiungere una piattaforma con il doppio salto.... cadi nel vuoto.
Quindi non solo il gioco è difficile, ma se ci metti pure questo enorme problema diventa ancor di più difficile!.
Ma nonostante questi difetti è un gioco molto godibile. Però secondo me , 7 euro sono troppi per un gioco del genere, se volete comprarlo da Steam vi consiglio dei super saldi.

Pandemonium is a 2.5D action platformer. Pandemonium is hard as nails. You know this. You bought this game in the mid-90s for your grey slab and you loved it. I know this well because I was you, and I still am.

The only reason you're here is because you saw your childhood (or adolescenthood w/e) was put up in the shopfront and ported to your shiney game tower format. So did I. But do not let its looks deceive you! This version of the game is a straight, low reolution, low-poly, lo-fi, exact replica of the Playstation classic. This is why it is bad. This is why you shouldn't buy it. You already have the disc, and you probably have at least a PS2 you can run it on. Go do that. Or rip your BIOS from your console and emulate the game. But do not buy this. not for £2, not for £1. Not even for the £0.69 I was on sale for last month.

The main problem with this game is control. PCs have 1000000000000000000000000000's of options for controllers. you can use anything from an 8 button fightstick to a 109 key Keyboard, with pads, joysticks, flightsticks, lightguns, keyboards (MIDI this time) etc in between. Although the game received my Motioninjoy xbox360 pad input OK, the button mappings were way off, all over the place! UNACCEPTABLE! This problem is joined onto the next; buttonpresses and keystrokes are not always registered. Being a game with doublejump, only registering a doublejump every third of fourth try is no good. no good at all. Although it brings back cheery memories of being bad at this game when I was 7, I'm only bad at this game now because the game doesn't respond,

Very Fustrating.

There are also no options in game for sound levels. no master, no music, no SFX. nada. If you want pandemonium to be quiet you have to (sacrifice a small goat and pray to your God) alt-tab, and then alter the levels in the windows sound manager. And then (sacrafice another goat...) alt-tab back.

Now let's talk about the glorious retro graphics. Being a bad port the game is available in one of four very small, very strange resolutions. three of which will crash the DirectDraw application the software goes through. The one that works, and it is very shaky, will look bad. I am the kind of guy who complains about a 960p upscale resolution, and some people will cast that comment aside. But imagine upscaling an analog monitor's grainy, pixelly, 700px wide display onto a screen almost 3x the size. please take a moment to think about how this looks. it's like watching a 240p film on youtube. vbad.

This writing has caused me to start losing good grammar so the rest will just be pros and cons.

pros
+fast way to waste excess money
+you can own pandemonium on your PC
+retro nostalgia

cons
-fast way to waste excess money
-you can buy CSGO keys instead of this
-buggy DirectDraw launcher and DX handler
-poor controller compatibility
-no config menus for anything
-bad button response
-nothing is remastered
-shaky alt-tabbing

In summary, go just get your old PSX, PS1 or PS2 and this disc and play it, or use your BIOS and epsxe to emulate your PS1 with some GFX upgrades, like smoothed textures, extended rendering and 1080p resolutions. This here, is a minor cashgrab and is partially forgivable given it's cost, but totally not worth it.

Think!
Don't ruin your childhood memories.

A classic platformer from the PS1. My only main gripe about this game is that there are some serious leaps of faith that annoy me greatly. Other than that, the level design and the music is very lovable, or maybe it's just my nostalgia talking.

I just finished the game and ... **** yes!. It was great. Since I played it when I were a little kid it was very nostalgic for me though I never finished it because it was to hard. It was still hard, unforgiving, but still somehow fair and a very fun, i cant believe it was made so long ago.

For those of you who are expecting a graphical bump or something extra, no.

Btw for those who finish the game, wasn't the credits the most awesome credits there is?

I had some problems when I tried to double jump (sometimes it didn't take my input or something) but other that that no problems at all.

Loved it! 9/10

I remember playing this as a wee lad. My dad got a free copy with a computer magazine and I probably spent hundreds of hours playing it. Wasn't very good at it, the death music is very much familiar to me :D its a fun game even as I play it today, the double jump sometimes seems unreliable or you have to press jump again at exactly the right nanosecond.

Even after nearly two decades I still remember the highest password I unlocked in the olden days.
Level 15, KACACIBA

Almost exactly as I remember it on the PS1. Excellent game, but the double-jump still sucks, the FMV emulation doesn't work particularly well, and the button prompts are keyboard-only. Other than that, it's awesome. :3

I was a huge fan of Pandemonium and Pandemonium 2 as a child, so I jumped at the chance to buy this on Steam. While the original game was fun, and I'd play it again if I had a PS1, the PC port is not. I don't recommend buying this until they fix some issues such as movement, jumping and the ability to have a menu that works on PC.

Ah... the old days. Putting the game disk in my old Playstation one, then later, my old (still working) Playstation 2. This is a game I remember fondly as one of the best platformers I've ever played.

To put it simply: This is a game I would play, time and again, just because it's fun. It's nice that I can have it on Steam because the old disk is now practically done for, after almost 2 decades of service!

While this is almost the exact same game on PC as it is on PSX, there's the different music (one track I do not recognize because it wasn't from the PSX version), the different controls that took some time getting used to (wish I could remap the controls to something more favorable), and lack of an options menu in the main menu also threw me off.

But there's the levels themselves, still beautiful in my eyes thanks to nostalgia. The fun of becoming a frog that belly-slams weird mushroom guys, a rhino that teaches those desert-bull things a lesson, even becoming a fire-breathing dragon that toasts flying shark-torpedos!

So don't like the recorded hours fool you, I've played this game in upwards of hundreds of hours, possibly even a thousand by now! If you love platformer games, you owe it to yourself to play this classic someday!

10/10: I will never regret playing this game.

P.S.: Have fun trying to find all the Heart Containers without guides or help.

Otimos graficos para a epoca de 90, fases criativas e carismaticas, alta dificuldade. Compra certa se você jogou isso na sua infancia assim como eu :0. O unico problema é que podiam ter feito um remake onde os tivesse suporte para controladores, e pudessem configurar os controles, pois os controles estão bem dificeis de se acostumar.

This is extremely sad to play. Level 1 should have 2 different tracks that play through out. Instead there is only 1. This might not sound like a big deal, but as for me personally it compeltly kills the game. When graphics werent as specutaculr as today games got away without the best by keeping the player engaged through the music. I loved playing this game on playstation and bought it knowing the game inside out. Without the music it feels like its had its soul ripped out by the publishers - and as you progress through the game and the levels get longer and longer the music thing becomes a much bigger problem. Theres also the issue of 'fade ins' and 'fadeouts' that I dont think I ever experienced on the orignal. IE after about 2 mins of music it stops and fades in. This also happens when you die.

Also they decided to rebind the keys. I have no clue why. Im playing on a PS3 controller, using software that maps the buttons. What was the jump button is now Square, the fire weapons is now Cross. Whats really annoying is that the pause button isnt mapped at all. So if you enter the wrong level you cant get out. Pressing 'esc' on the keyboard closes the game.

On the plus side - load times dont exsist and frame rate is much better than the oringal. Id say the game runs slightly faster than the orignal.

Really lame borked version of a fantastically fun game.
