    DeadCore is a unique, smart and very challenging game that boasts a personality at the same time modern and retro. If you don't fear its challenge, give it a try.

    If you’ve got the patience to keep at it, Deadcore is an amazing new take on a tried and tested formula. The gameplay elements it combines run seamlessly into each other, with nearly flawless level design. It offers immense replayability for the Speed Runner crowd, and a challenging, rewarding experience for everybody who plays it.

    You have to have some interest in speedruns and an affinity for dexterity games from the first-person perspective with a Quake-like pace. Then you might love it, even though you still have to look past an overly obscure level-design.

It might even be so hard that certain players will simply drop off, but if you are not afraid of insanely complicated puzzles you have to give this a try.

    A lot of skill, fast reflexes and quick maneuvering are keys to solve the riddle throughout its 5 levels. If it just had a few more checkpoints so it wasn't unbearably punishing then it would have been a 9 or 10, but I feel that it solidly earns a well deserved 8/10.

Be warned, however - this game is brutally difficult and will actively attempt, at every twist and turn, to frustrate, confound and irritate you. That said, despite this infuriating difficulty it is still rather enjoyable. Expand

    A sparse checkpoint system combined with NO ability to select difficulty equals a game that is more frustrating than fun. The casual playerA sparse checkpoint system combined with NO ability to select difficulty equals a game that is more frustrating than fun. The casual player won't have the time or patience to replay levels over and over ad nauseum. It's a nice idea ruined by poor execution. Expand
