I've read all sort of bulls**t in the reviews about this game. This is NOT a PS1 port. It is the very same PC version of 1996, but with a 3DFX/Glide Wrapper to emulate the 3D cards of that time. I have the original version of this game in CD, and if you don't use a glide wrapper, you have to run in software mode, where you can't change the resolution, neither use filters like anti-aliasing. People with a little bit of effort, can find the game folder and change the graphics configs using the nglide_config app. Of course it will not change like water into wine. It is a 20-year-old game, one of the first 3D-accelerated games. Give a break.

So I recommend the game to the people who likes old games, because this IS an old game, with the limitations imposed by its age. The game runs fine in Windows 10 and with a Xbox 360 controller, you can set the resolution to Full HD (or even more), but, as I said, it's a 20-year-old game in Full HD, with pre-rendered backgrounds that doesn't change with the resolution and low-poly objects. You can see the result in my screenshot gallery. ;-)

Pandemonium is a dumb, ooooold PS1 game with some interesting ideas, being possibly the first 2.5D platformer, along with an interesting soundtrack, some challenging and really interesting levels, and mostly solid controls. Nostalgia points galore.

Problem is the Steam port is terrible. 640x480 resolution lock, and the game is terrible at letting the player try to adjust for it. It's like they just stuck the old PC version from the 90s on Steam without updating it at all.

This game is worth a try, but not this version.

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.

Still as annoying as it was when 6yearold me played it, but also as addictive!

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...

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

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 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

10/10 Those red bombs are proper ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s.
