    A "hard as bone" game that clearly takes inspiration from Hotline Miami and Gunpoint, but is brilliant enough to do its own thing. It will be frustrating at times, but if you love challenging games it's basically a must have.

    But between the clever level layouts, exciting gunplay, expressive sprite art and animations, and some chill grooves by composer Chris Christodoulou, I was hooked. By the end of Deadbolt, I wasn't nearly ready to leave. The game felt like it was just starting to become truly great.

    Deadbolt is a small action game that can be extremely funny. The gunfight tension is worth more than the gunfight itself: a fundamental rule in cinema that Hopoo Games perfectly applied to its videogame.

    A fusion of Gunpoint with Hotline Miami that casts you as the Grim Reaper and tasks you with clearing out dens of undead criminals. [05/2016, p.47]

    Deadbolt feels like a less thought-through combination of Hotline Miami and Gunpoint. The game can be frustrating and difficult, which is partly because the game just is not that well made. It is okay, but very short.

    Deadbolt is a joy to play by anyone wanting simplistic yet extremely challenging action, offering a good variety of enemies and weapons. Nevertheless, it falls far behind Hotline Miami, a game with similar “DNA” but with much more personality.

Nice, minimalistic design, superb soundtrack, crude humor, challenging gameplay. Plus, the protagonist is super cool with his skull and fur coat. And all the little touches such as the chimney, the cat, the car and the scythe are just perfect. Some stronger narrative would be better though. Expand

    Grandísimo juego de acción rápida.

    A medio camino entre Hotline Miami y Gunpoint, Deadbolt combina lo mejor de ambos títulos y le suma una ambientación y premisa originales además de una banda sonora con muchísimo carisma.

    Lo único que le puedo sacar malo al juego es que es una pena que no nos cuente más de su historia, que parece muy interesante pero parece que no se termina de desarrollar enteramente.

    Recomendado para todo el mundo, casual o veterano.

    P.D.: ¿He mencionado ya que la banda sonora es buenísima?

Plays much like Hotline Miami but 2D instead of isometric. The ambiance between missions is probably my favorite part of the game as you sit in a dark room with a phonograph and receive orders from your fireplace. The actual gameplay kept me entertained for nearly 3 hours (I think the whole game is close to 6 hours) but to somebody hankering for a hotline miami type of game a lot more enjoyment could be had.
