Reviews and citations

A collection of the reviews so far...

LINK-CABLE: 8.3/10
" It’s a brutally challenging game that embraces its difficulty to deliver an unapologetic experience that forces you to get better at it or go and play something else."

"Ultimately then, if you have inhuman hand/eye coordination or really do like inflicting inner turmoil upon yourself, then you probably should consider picking AFTERGRINDER up."

"Players are quickly thrown into the gauntlet in an almost ‘trial by fire’ type of approach wherein new mechanics are introduced at a rapid pace."

"Aftergrinder does a great job of building on a simple premise and creating a fast-paced game that is simultaneously addictive and frustrating."

"The game developers expect you to die over and over, which made it even more fun for me."

"Aftergrinder doesn’t attempt to hide what it is. It is a frustration game. Like Super Meat Boy or The Impossible Game this game is designed to test your skill at twitch gaming and then annoy you if you aren’t good enough."

"I found AFTERGRINDER to have pretty fluid controls, and it rarely felt like the difficulty was artificial. I usually felt like I stood a chance against the level as long as I could just remember which paths to take, and alter my playstyle a bit."

For a decent average of 72%.

“AFTERGRINDER is also a surprisingly great multiplayer experience (even though it’s a single player game) as me and my friends had a ton of fun just passing the controller back and forth and seeing who could beat some of the game’s tougher levels or beat my (ridiculously good) high scores.”

“If you have inhuman hand/eye coordination or really do like inflicting inner turmoil upon yourself, then you probably should consider picking AFTERGRINDER up. You’ll probably get a kick out of it, you sick bastard.”
80 – Game Spew

“AFTERGRINDER has so much depth and substance, executing it all with such a limited number of moving pieces. It is a testament to the mantra of simplicity and shows off how much developers can do with so little.”
80 – GOG Connected

Unless you can survive 90 rage-inducing levels in 3 unforgiving worlds, that is.

  • Test your skills in 90 fast-paced levels.
  • Race through environments rightside up or upside down – whatever keeps you alive the longest .
  • Explore 3 different worlds, each with its own twists and turns.
  • Choose between 3 playable characters: The Dude (easy), the Lady (normal), and the Shark (hard).
  • Enjoy heart-thumping techno tracks as you die, retry … and die again!
