Reviews

“The game tests your reflexes, aim, enemy management, and other skills simultaneously, does not let up or take it easy on the player. I can’t count the number of time I barely made it through a wave, and the sense of accomplishment I had afterward was always great.”
3.9/5 – Mash Those Buttons

“Drive to Hell is a simple yet challenging game that can be enjoyed in either short or long bursts, Ghost Crab Games, the developers have clearly drawn inspiration from older titles like Outrun and Spy Hunter while at the same time adding new features and more reasons to keep you coming back time and time again. If you enjoy this sort of arcade non-stop action, then your epic quest to avenge the destruction of your favorite bar (yep, that's the plot) will be a fun one.”
No Review Left Behind

“Drive to Hell is a breath of fresh air, defying convention while also building on a solid foundation to deliver an excellent indie arcade experience. It has unique enemies from the titular underworld, a bounty of bonuses to collect, and a soundtrack that wont leave your head for months. These are the types of games which you just don’t see often in the current age of mobile ports and Greenlight disasters, and that alone should warrant your attention.”

Hot damn!

Drive to Hell is a down to earth blast. Controls are intuitive,
the gameplay has a rhythm to it, that let's you directly dive
into it. Although it's a scrolling shooter, it is no bullet hell.
The game presents you a challenge on the different
difficulties, without just increasing the bullet count
on screen. The soundtrack let's you forget the time,
as you bracing yourself for just one more go.

When you die, your score is reset, but you will
always be able to continue where you left off, also
having the chance to switch vehicles and difficulty.
The level design is quiet polished and balanced.
I never got the feeling the game was unfair or
punishing. You always see, where all went
wrong. Like not having been aware of
your surroundings, or trying to hard
to get that one powerup.

Drive to Hell was an instant surpirse.
I just booted it up, not even exactly
knowing what to expect and have
been playing it for hours now.

If you have already played with
the thought of getting it, or having
it resting in your backlog, give it a spin.
You are also able to get a good impression
of the game in under two hours, so you
might refund it, if it isn't actually your
cup of tea.


See you in Hell! 8)

Fun little bottom-to-top rolling 2d shooter, reminiscent of the old arcade games. I've finished the game on normal, tried hard, and the difficulty seems fine, there's still 2 more higher difficulties remaining after hard that i haven't tried.

Decent amount of achievements, to keep you busy for a while. If you like those old arcade games, you'll like this one. Takes about an hour to run through, so it's a quick game. But these type of games aways are. Only bugs i encountered was when recording, the screen blinked a bit, but otherwise, game run smooth.

If you want to see gameplay, there's my run of the normal mode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byDMYcVxq8M

It is a great game if you like local coop. It reminds me of those old school shooters with a jet from the arcades.
It is great for beginner gamers as well which is great for my gf. ( you dont need to control 3-d )
I bought this on sale for a dollar or something. Well worth the dollar.

It's a fun game. If you love arcade games, this game will not upset you.I played like 4 hours now; i liked it so much. I hope this game will get some extra maps and cars :)

Pros:
+Easy to control
+Arcade master
+Quite fun with Gamepad

Cons:
+Kinda overpriced


I'm quite sure that this game will ruin my life because its alot of fun. Also its not "that" overpriced its worth to buy. Find a %50 discount coupon then buy. :)

And Surely: 10/10 .

A game that tries it's best to be a horror based version of 'Spy Hunter' but never shifts into gear when it comes to engaging gameplay.

I was drawn in by the graphics, but they don't work well together. The game could do with some rebalancing as well, as it's a pretty difficult game right now. On top of that the content seems to get a bit stale quickly. All in all it's a full game, but it's not pulling me in at all. Also, what's up with that intro.

A really fun top-down, twin-stick shooter wrapped in the guide of a road trip riddled with monsters and demons. The game is filled with weapon upgrades, boss monsters, and a visual style that brings me back to the 16-bit era. The game plays great with either keyboard/mouse or a controller, and the tone of the game (you are driving through hell - like in a car, capable of firing missiles, because a demon blew up your favorite bar) is really fun and doesn't take itself too seriously, which is refreshing.

I guess one could read into it a bit too much and glean a point about who is really the monster: the demon, or the couple willing to hunt him down because they couldn't get a drink, but I'm too busy blowing stuff up to care about morality in games. I have demons to kill, so pour me another!

A really fun game, and definitely worth the asking price!

Is Drive to Hell shoot'em up? Twin stick shooter? Bullet-hell? Actually, its more like a mix of all of them, plus a bit of driving game with a crazy storyline. Yeah, story is about aliens invading the Earth and you - some driver shooting the hell of them. Oh, and I'm gonna spoil it, you will me meet a big alien boss at the end of the game ;).

Drive to Hell has all elements what makes this genre so immersive - solid gameplay and good balance. Shooting is satisfying and the interesting part of gameplay is that it enforces player to pick and use different power-ups, because they are freaking powerful, while the main gun, in most cases, is weak and requires much more effort to succeed. Varied enemy types adds up to a great experience. As I mentioned, balance is suprisingly good, normal difficulty is suitable for anyone, while higher difficulties and survival mode really test your skills, but in a good way and is never impossible.

Gameplay feels good and features many cars to choose from, which can be fast, but without much of firepower or a complete opposite. Completing levels with good score earns money, which can be used only for different cars. Length is just right, there are 5 levels with 5 waves each and a boss at the end of level. Along with 4 difficulties, many achievements and survival mode it can easily immerse for at least 5 hours. For such a low price its amazing how meaty the game is.

What really separates Drive to Hell from others shoot'em ups is graphics. Its made with Unity engine and features very crisp colors, which makes it so easy to notice every enemy or bullet.

Well, there is some some problems too, coop mode works, but it can be hard to make your controller work, also music and sound effects lacks variety.

Drive to Hell really shows how indie shmups improved recently, with its slick gameplay and some inovations. True bang for your buck!

9/10

Being hopelessly bad at shoot 'em ups, I actually had a blast playing this on the easiest skill level.
In my quick look at the game, around 45 minutes, I was able to beat two bosses and not die all the time.
While I'll neve be able to master this genre, some of the games are actually fun to play, due to them being fair towards beginners while still offering plenty of higher skill levels for the hardcore crowd, and Drive to Hell is definitely in this category.

Got this game while it was in Greenlight Process From Groupee like in 2014 February so Quite some time ago it was on Desura played it there it was Pretty Good now that it Release on Steam it better With Achievements & Score Leaderboard.

You start with a single Vehicle you can unlock a few Vehicle which vary in size so the hitbox is different but it also change how powerful is the Chaingun which is the main weapon, Also the Power UP Card you Pick around Which are considered also Consumable item you can have 3 in Slot.

And each have Vehicle have 1 unique special ability you can also use a nitro boost at the cost of ur multiplier Gauge with Left Click.

You can continue from where you played before so ur not forced to play it one sitting but if you die you can continue / Retry the level you are on story mode but all ur Highscore is gone

for some it might be a problem but it possible at normal to clear the game in less then an hour with 4 harder difficulty to play / Endless survival / mirror mode

in my opinion it worth the price asked for the control are great for both M&K & Gamepad

Shoot, dodge, die, repeat.

The concept is simple... mastering it is the real challenge. Drive to Hell is a nice throwback to the quarter guzzling arcade games of old, with responsive controls, a good soundtrack, and fun enemies.

One of the best twin stick shooters to be released recently.

Nice game that was part of a greenlight bundle. Unlike a number of similar retro shooters in this genre this one smacks with freshness. Don't expect much of a story but the controller (on a mouse and keyboard for me) were suprisingly fluid. Also a bonus to many in this genre you have health rather than life--something i much prefer. The power up weapons are great, though a bit too short lasting for how fun they are. Their are other pickups useful as well to your journey through hell--much more campy than grotesque or frightening. Has a great 80-90s vibe to it especially with the unbelievably awesome soundtrack (at least to me). No 15 second endless loops that get repetive. These are quality songs that smack of a bit shoegaze 80-90s rock in the genre closest to the band the Cure.

I would definately recommend this for the modest price of $5 if you like any of the above listed.

Classic bullethell game - in hell. Standard arcade fun, quick to play. I found the "normal" difficulty to be perfect - I was able to complete the game with only a little amount of trouble. Haven't tried multi yet, but I know it should be good times.

If you're a fan of Shmups you should buy this game, you'll have a blast with it. Really great twin-stick conrol scheme makes it easy to get into and lets you do some pretty fancy moves. Animations are good, has a fun style to itself, and plays really well in co-op! Played great right out of the box, worked with my controller without having to fiddle with anything. Good number of unlockables to keep you coming back. Lots of weird enemy designs that feel unique. Cool powerups. What else can I say?
Feels like a long-lost coin-op arcade shmup. Can't beat it for the price!
