    Dante's journey through the five circles of hell in The Inferno is a delight to any fast fingered player with an interest in classic literature. If you are looking for a slow puzzle game that lets you do things at your own pace The Inferno is not for you.

    Despite some aggravating flaws, The Inferno offers a lot of well-designed content that will keep you on your toes for hours.

    The Inferno is a hellacious grind for sure, whose fun factor starts to slip as the levels get longer & more repetitive, and as you start to rack up an astronomical number of deaths. It will appeal to your sadistic streak, providing you have one.

    A short but entirely enjoyable little top-down action game. The largely timing-based puzzles aren't too mentally taxing and keep the core of the gameplay at a fairly fast pace.

    While The Inferno's brand of fiendish maze-running possesses a stripped back, old-skool charm, clunky controls and poor animation place the game in a frustrating state of purgatory.
