Simply amazing. Reminiscent of They Bleed Pixels, Demon Hearts is tight, stylish, and fun. The difficulty is a good tough as nails challenge without being unfair.

A "hard platformer" as made by somebody who doesn't understand how to make a fun platformer hard, rather than just making sure there are a lot of tedius deaths and time limits that force you to rush thru plain and boring levels. I Wanna Be the Guy is still free and has far more character than this game.

The design of the game is rather simplistic but don’t let that fool you, it’s still very entertaining and teeters on the edge of a rage and puzzle game. I have not beaten the game yet but I can say I plan too! With it’s up beat techno music, vivid colors, challenging puzzles and oh so cute main character, Demon Hearts may have my heart for some time to come.

Fifty plus levels. Full controller support. Amazing platform game play with difficulty oozing out of every moment in the game. A cool character to control. Sound good? If it does, this game is for you! Killing demons is fun when you're kind of a baddie yourself in the game!

This game has tested my abilities and i love these types of games. The music is awesome (even if replayed quite often) but i love it. I have currently beaten the game with every character and did the final final boss with 1 character so far. I would love to see some kind of DLC maybe of more levels? or perhaps a DH2? i dont think i will have the ability to calmly sit by and do demon mode all the way though without wanting to strangle someone. Other then that difficulty i give this game a 10/10. Probably will never obtain those last 3 achievements so i say farewell to my unfinished achievement game... cry.

Demon Hearts - A Steam Review

[Disclamer - I was provided a copy of by the publisher for review purposes]

The good
  • The music is awesome
  • Quick respawns so you’ll never get out of the “zone” because of the loading times
  • Clean pixel graphics that are kid friendly, with no blood in sight

The not so good:
  • The controls are kinda floaty...especially after using the special move.
  • Some areas are “rip your hair off” frustrating, and it’s not 100% because of the player.

The conclusion:
Reflex based platformers live or die by their controls. Demon Hearts is not perfect in that aspect, which can deter the more hardcore gamers. But if you enjoy small bursts of frustration and pain, followed by a sense of accomplishment when you finally ♥♥♥♥ing finish that ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥ed up level, you really should give Demon Hearts a try.
You can see me playing it here - http://youtu.be/zKuSw-gDkuA

Demon Hearts-- it's a fast paced precision platformer, that wears its inspirations on its sleeves, it takes all the best lesons learned from platformers of recent years and jam packs them into 50ish levels. The controls are simple and the gameplay is deep without being too complex.

There is no doubt that you should pick this hidden gem up, as it's only $10, especially if you're a fan of games like, Super Meat Boy, I wanna be the Guy, Wings of Vi, etc.

Dev may get a little offended by mentioning it but I will anyway since it's a great combination. Demon Hearts is basically a blend of They Bleed Pixels, Electronic Super Joy and Super Meat boy. Games like this require responsive controls and upbeat soundtracks, thankfully it provides both. 50 odd levels and secret areas to discover, while the hub system makes backtracking a breeze. Supports remapping of controls and 4k+ screen resolutions via the unity launcher.
Price may seem high but if looking for your next rage inducing platformer, look no further.

I really like the upbeat soundtrack to add into the puzzle platformer mood of things.

I also like that you have a death button to maintain your momentum, if you happen to mess up. This adds a cool effect for people who are trying to speed run through the game and get the fastest time.

The fact that each of the unlockable characters have their own unique playstyle, which makes it challaneging.

and so much more!

Gameplay Footage and Video First Impressions: http://youtu.be/m-3umxPciRs

Summary:

For hardcore speedrunner fans, this may be up your alley, but there are better options for those looking for games in the genre. While it's got a uniquish artstyle, the gameplay and controls feel a little bit off. In particular, you'll feel like you're getting stuck on ledges at times, and some of the jumps do take a level of precision that may be asking for too much. The music is the highlight here as it keeps the high energy gameplay going, and it's definitely a cool fact that the game was developed by one person. seemingly But at the cost of 10 dollars, I can't recommend it because the game just lacks compared to other games like JumpJet Rex for the cost versus return. For those who want a challenge.

Lists:

+:
  • Great Music Selection, even if some of the music is things that we have heard before in a remixed format.
  • They do add a little bit of variety, and the boss battle while still focusing on platforming was nice.
  • The retro style does work for some of the pixel work.
  • Have to give the developer credit for doing this on his own.

-:
  • The controls feel a little bit off. There's a bit of play at times, and some of the precision. In particular, a lot of times where I felt like the jumps were just too tricky or you seemed to get caught on wall edges a bit.
  • Being honest....there's not anything specific that stands out here in the end.
  • Certain levels feel like that they don't take advantage of the speedrunner genre.
  • Enemy designs could use a bit more design work put into it.
