  • Summary: BUTCHER is a fast-paced 2D shooter and a blood-soaked love letter to the early 90s. If kicking corpses into a lava pit and adorning walls with blood is your idea of a good time, BUTCHER is THE game for you.

    Butcher is a living relic, a callback to the days when being gritty and macabre was a goal unto itself. But make no mistake: beneath that gruff exterior is a thoughtfully crafted game.

    It does a good job of recreating the atmosphere of those early 90s shooters despite having a very different play style. This title is geared toward a niche market and as such is not going to be a must play for everyone, but for those who love old school ultra violent and ultra challenging games, this is not one to miss. For fans of retro games, everything about Butcher screams 1993.

    Brutal retro massacre. Bloody and bloody difficult, desperately unoriginal, but entertaining in the core– and this is all what matters.

    Butcher is definitely not for everyone its technical state is nothing to be proud of. On the other hand, it offers high difficulty and big amount of masochist fun, that you will not find just anywhere. [Issue #270]
