Pretty fun and frustrating at the same time very intense, so kill, wow. Most of the time, it take the ♥♥♥♥ out of me when I die 34 seconds after the first try. By now, my best run is 190 seconds. Maybe in the future I would reach 200 (y).

10/10 would bang

Very fun, and very addictive. Extremely high paced once you get to the "higher levels".

Generally I'm very lenient towards indie games. I love to support aspiring designers, even if the games themselves are not very good. Devil Daggers is about to become my first Steam refund.
It is not a game. At best, it's a proof of concept. It would be too barebones even for an early access game -- and this one is sold as a finished product.
There is notihing in there. One "level" -- a flat round arena with a backdrop of darkness (that is, no backdrop). The soundtrack is silence (that is, there's no soundtrack). Endlessly spawning monsters who kill you in one touch. One weapon shooting painfully slow projectiles -- supposedly there's more, but I got too bored too fast to see them. No progression system. Nothing. Just you, a sucky weapon and a rolling pile of skulls. Probably cool as a game jam creation, but not something one should sell for money.

If you want a game that absolutely hates you solely because you exist and punishes you more than a 100 dark souls ng +8 playthroughs then this is your game.

The overall aesthetic and the rush of beating your score is like nothing you will ever experience. If you want to put your skills to the test, buy this game now.

If you enjoy skill-based FPS games and don't mind a setting that is entirely repetitive, this is a good choice. If you enjoy getting better at something and strive to 'beat' a game no matter the odds, and find a thrill in knowing you're getting better: this is an excellent game choice.

Only bad side is the continual never-changing repetition of the game. But this is the way the game is meant to be.

I've seen many reviews referring to Devil Daggers as a bullet hell. "But why?" I said. "There's no projectiles other than the ones you shoot." I started thinking about it; and I came to realize this:

Instead of bullets, the squids shoot skulls at you.
Instead of lazers, the spiders suck up your power gems and shoot spider eggs at you.

At this point, I figured that Devil Daggers was a bullet hell without the bullets, and the game's graphics, gameplay, and audio represent that well. Bullet hell without the bullets is just hell.

And God, do I love it so.

This is probably the most intense, exciting and frustrating game ever. Great fun, smooth simplistic gameplay yet really hard to master.

This game is ruthless and super addictive. You'll always want to try one more time to get that one extra second to your high score. And oh boy when you do make a new record, the feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction is unparallelled! The graphics and sounds create an amazing hellish atmosphere and the horror feels very real when the arena fills with endless swarms of demons that you try to desperately destroy. Watching a gameplay video of this game gives a pretty good idea what the game will be like and that's pretty much all it will be, but playing it is much more fun than one might expect.

This game is what gaming is all about. It is challenging, primal, addictive, frustrating, but there is nothing more rewarding than beating your previous record by 1 millisecond!!!

If you are tired of games being too easy and you want to challenge yourself, buy the game!!

Recently I have started trying to bulk up my biceps and lose a lil around the waste, so I decided to implement my workout into my gaming time, I really enjoy devil daggers and have been trying to beat my score of 216 seconds, so I made a game within a game, every time I die I do 20 bicep curls on one arm them the next death I do the other, I also do 10 pushups after the curls, it has worked really well and encourage you guys to try it too. I would reccomend this game if you don't get ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off easily or want to lose weight.

Spent a few hours on this last night.

The game loop is incredibly tight, and mostly short - but it doesn't waste your time getting you back into the game.

Graphics are done with a particular style in mind, and I think they succeed. The sound design is so very, very incredible - but I do prefer to listen to some music while playing. I found Poisonblack to be good, as well as C-Lekktor.

Don't pick this up if you're looking for something deep and life changing. Do pick this up if you're having a ♥♥♥♥ day and just want to get into a fast, furious game of killing ♥♥♥♥ and running away

I'm gonna say it straight up : this game is a PURGE. I haven't played a shooter this intense in a very long while, especially one that leaves me breathing heavily, all sweaty and litterally shaken, not stirred.

The most important thing in this game is this oppressing ambiance, reminding you every second that you're not welcome here and so very close to death, whether it's the dark, mostly red-orange visuals or the aggressive sound design. If you wanted a tranquil walk in the park, this is not the game for you, if you're looking for a challenge that will beat the turd out of you, you've come to the right place, because this game will challenge not only your mental, but your physical endurance as well. You'll be nothing but a heavy breathing mass of shaking, confused flesh once you make it far enough.

You'll need to focus on all your senses (apart from taste but shhhhhh) if you're planning to master the mercyless tide of ennemies this game is all about. I'd recommend against buying this game if all you're here for is trying to get the achievement though, haha, good luck with that ! Good f'ing luck !

Violent, Fast-Paced, Oppressive, Die-and-Retry, Arena shooter, if all these words fits your tastes : jump in and join this world of pain.
